NOTE IF ANY US BRUSH OWNER DID NOT RECEIVE THIS EMAIL TODAY PLEASE EMAIL ME AT lamond2@bigpond.com
"Paul Schaefer, as retiring President of The USA Association of Brush Owners - in conjunction with Founder Ed Clarke and Treasurer Harold Musolf Jnr., today confirmed to me that the USA Association accepted our offer of membership in the Brush Owners Register of Australia, with control in Australia's hands, merging with us at no cost and each of you having full access to our website, which Hamish is developing, likely involving members forum - sharing questions and suggestions etc - and you accessing/contributing to our “The SWEEP” newsletter, in digital form on the website - with all our communications by internet.
Paul has also accepted the role as our USA representative to encourage and facilitate USA Brush activities and contributions to our website and our “SWEEP” Newsletter.
Given this merger I recommend that in future we use the name “ International Brush Owners Association” and continue our invitation to all Brush Owners throughout the world to join us.
So now it is up to us Australian’s to welcome you and encourage you to work with us through emails on your Brush activity , restorations, new acquisitions, sales, indeed anything new or old about Brush.
Hamish McDonald, our Editor of “The SWEEP” and website developer, already has a huge load - despite this he welcomes contributions by email to hamishmcdonald@bigpond.com
I have undertaken the (hazardous ?) job of developing the email address listing of former members of the USA Assoc. so I am sending this email to those who appear on John Guy’s, Harold Musolf lists etc etc. Some only have a mailing address - these are set out on the attached list - if you know any member on that list please ask them to email me from any local email facility.
To each of you I extend a warm Aussie “Welcome” on behalf of our Australian members
We plan to have my Volume titled “The Brush Runabout - Everyman’s Car - 1907 to 1913 - and the World Wide Photo Catalogue of Brush Runabouts and their Owners” up on our new website in due course so if you have any changes to your current page or if you would like to contribute a new page - please email me the details lamond2@bigpond.com
We are all Brush owners and we all have a special interest in developing our knowledge, the continued preservation and enjoyment of these unique pieces of automotive history. So let’s communicate !
I welcome your comments and suggestions - please.
Cheers

FOLLOWING THIS MERGER I AM RECOMMENDING THAT OUR ASSOCIATION OF BRUSH OWNERS BE KNOWN AS:
