Trip Leader:Michael Gilbert
When: 13th December, 2014
Location: 6 Pusey Road, Cockburn Central
Participants: 14 Members
This was the first event from our club sponsor Goodchild Enterprises, I had been talking to Roger Goodchild for sometime about the possibility of running such an event, in the end it all came together very quickly deciding that just before Christmas looked good.
The main idea of this event was to allow club members access to Goodchild’s massive range of batteries and related battery accessories and to the professional expertise and knowledge of Roger and Rex, with the added advantage of them performing tests on members’ batteries on the day.
We had a good turn out of 14 members for our first event as can be seen from the photo’s ‘many heads’ under
car bonnets… enjoying other member’s company and learning something new.
One of the highlights of the day was the tour of the massive warehouse facility with Rex. He told us Goodchild’s can sell up to 10,000 batteries each month! Plus they have a fleet of 10 delivery vehicles supplying the many auto electrical businesses throughout the Perth area.
Personally I was very pleased with how the event went. As you can see from the list below our members snapped up the special discounts offered on the day. I know I did… purchasing two items I had been wanting for sometime.
Sales stats for Saturday:
2 clamp meters
1 volt meter
1 UHF radio kit
Thanks to Rex & Roger Goodchild for their time and expertise, and to all the members who came along on the day.
