The President's Picnic is the Club's All-Chapter annual extravaganza and attracts over 200 members and guests and a fascinating array of MX-5’s! Norm Barker has volunteered to lead the Canberra Chapter Run, so why not join him for a two-day run to Richmond for a great picnic, car show and generally fun-filled day in the grounds of the Ebenezer Church. Club members are provided with a free morning tea and lunch.

Everyone has the chance to wander through the historic sandstone Church, make a purchase at their canteen and walk around its well-maintained grounds and the rows of roadsters. You are encouraged to exhibit your car in one of the competition categories or take the opportunity to simply park your MX-5 in the grounds in the company of over 100 other roadsters. This is a fantastic opportunity to sit back and enjoy the event in the company of friends and members from all chapters and volunteer to help on the day.

Espresso coffee, biscuits, cake and pastries will be available during morning tea with a lunch of BBQ chicken, sausages and salads being served from around 12:30pm. To get your free morning tea and/or lunch you must have pre-registered for this event.
