Farwell Yvonne Tolmer

                  
It is with great sadness that we mourn the loss of Yvonne Tolmer, an icon of karting in South Australia.
.
Yvonne, commonly referred to simply as ‘Mum’, was a hard-working volunteer, a grid lady, and a life member of the Southern Go Kart Club, but most importantly she was a friend to all in the South Australian karting community.
.
For more than 30 years Mum opened the gates at Bolivar and yelled her iconic “Roll ’em out!” – always with a warm and welcoming smile. Mum will be fondly remembered by all who visited our facility during this time.
.
In honour of her commitment and contribution to our club, Yvonne was awarded life membership and a new set of out-grid were commissioned and embossed with her name. While her health in the last few years did not allow her to continue to volunteer, her heart was always with the Southern Go Kart Club.
.
Although the gates will no longer be opened and closed by Mum, her memory will live on in the hearts of the South Australian karting community.
.
May you rest in peace, Yvonne.
.
Roll them out.
