Board Members
Justin Hodgetts

Justin Hodgetts

President

Hi I’m Justin, Club President, Father of 3 and an avid Off-roader. I have been Camping, fishing, hunting, 4wding most of my life here in Tasmania. I have been able to show my kids parts of this place that most have never seen and will never see, because of the lifestyle I’ve chosen. This Club has been a big part of that over the years as well . Now, I get to give back to the Club that has given me so much since I joined. I have held many leadership roles from sports and in the work force and will bring that knowledge to the current role as Club President

Jason Fields

Jason Fields

Public Officer

Hi I'm Jason. As a club founding member I have been here since inception. I'm currently the Public Officer, Victorian Head Rep/Vic club permit scrutineer and proudly a club sponsor through my business, Bridgestone Select Hampton Park. I have a passion for all things off road and camping. In my spare time you will find me out on the tough technical tracks in a very capable Gen4 LWB or cute little Gen1 SWB. I enjoy helping those new to 4wding get out there and realise the potential of their rig, no matter what you drive.

Christine Keen

Christine Keen

Secretary

Hi, I’m Christine Keen. I’m Adelaide born and raised. I’m now a single parent, with one child still living at home. My employment history saw me working in a variety of administrative roles from office junior to private secretary over a period of eighteen years, until I became a full time parent. I became a member of the National Pajero Club of Australia in May 2019, after I was invited to attend a beginner’s day in late March. I had so much fun, I decided to take out a membership. Joining the club, has given me a chance to get out of the house, meet new people and push myself well out of my comfort zone. Something I pushed to the limits by driving half way across the country for the inaugural National Event in September/October with my teenage daughter. My other interests are handicraft, crosswords, reading, cricket and family history – I’ve been the journal editor for the Fleurieu Peninsula Family History Group for over five years.

I'm an avid 4wder, love the camping and fishing lifestyle, and touring this wide Brown land in search of new adventures. Oh...and a really weird sense of humour!

Ashley Thompson

State Head Rep, South Australia

Hi all my name is Ashley Thompson, and I am the State Head rep for SA. I have been a member of the club for just over 3 years, I'm married with 3 daughters & a grandchild I still have 2 at home. I love trying to get away whenever I can along with 4wding. I am also a member with SA Country Fire Service which I have been a part of for over 26 years, I'm really easy going and like to just get out and have some fun. I love being a part of this wonderful club because its very family orientated & we have so many people from all walks of life & happy to have anyone join us. The best part of all is us being a National club I get the opportunities to see other parts of our wonderful country that we would not normally get to see.
