The annual picnic gathering of our members from all chapters will again be held in the riverbank grounds of Ebenezer Church on Saturday 22 September 2018. Ebenezer Church is the oldest church in Australia conducting weekly services situated just 12km from Windsor in a rural setting on the banks of the Hawkesbury River.

If you wish to attend the President's Picnic, you MUST complete the Registration Form, so that we can cater for the right number of people and have some food for you.

Pack your picnic rug and goodies to join us for a member’s picnic lunch of BBQ chook, bangers and salad. Lunch will be provided to all current financial members in attendance without charge. To get your free lunch you must have pre-registered for this event and ensure that your membership is paid up and current. Then wander through the historic sandstone Church and grounds, exhibit your car in one of the categories, or just sit back and enjoy the day in the company of friends from all our chapters.

THE CLUB RESERVES THE RIGHT TO CANCEL OR VARY THE CAR SHOW EVENTS UP UNTIL THE DAY OF THE EVENT DUE TO WEATHER CONDITIONS SO CHECK THIS WEBPAGE ON THE DAYS BEFORE THE EVENTS.
