Club Profile

Established in 1978, our club caters for all ’48 to ’56 model Holdens.  The Club caters for and boast a range of 48-215’s and FJ’s in a wide variety from stock standard to highly modified vehicles.  Our club meets at 8pm on the last Tuesday of the month (January to November) at the Scout Hall in Boothtown Reserve, Gipps Road, Greystanes.  Visitors are always welcome.

Newsletter
The Club offers a Monthly Newsletter, which comes out at the monthly meetings.  Any member not present at the meeting will be sent a copy in the mail / e-mail.  Monthly advertising in the Newsletter is available for a minimal fee per annum.  But one-off ‘for sale’ and ‘wanted’ ads can be placed for free as long as they meet the publishing deadline.

Social Events and Outings
As well as regular monthly meetings, our Social Secretary organizes outings once a month.  These outings can be as simple as a nice picnic in the park.  But we also frequent some Car Shows in the area such as the GM Display Day at Penrith, charity car shows like Rattle ‘n’ Hum and the large display day and swap meet, All Holden Day. These are annual events and are always enjoyable outings for the Club.  There is also a Children’s Christmas Picnic held every November, where children (or grandchildren) of a member (12 years and under) who attends is entitled to a gift from Santa.  And of course, the Adults Christmas party/Presentation Night is always an event not to miss.  On occasion, there are weekends away arranged for a social get together.  We also participate in the AEHF Nationals every two years (even years).

Fundraising
We hold a monthly raffle at the meetings (tickets $1 each).  The major fundraiser for the Club’s finances is held on the first Sunday in every July at the Fairfield Showground.  This is the ‘Blacktown Swap Meet’ and has proved to be an excellent fundraiser for the Club.  All members are encouraged to join in on the fun of running the event as all members will reap the rewards and benefits of this weekend.

Incentives
Incentive for members to participate in Club events exist in the ‘Point Score’ system.  There is also a peer voting system to recognize the ‘Car of the Year’.  These and other awards and trophies are presented at the Adults Christmas Party/Presentation Night each December.
Point Score: Get 10 points for attendance at each meeting or run, get a bonus 10 points for bringing your FX/FJ to a meeting and a bonus 20 points for bringing your FX/FJ to a Club Run.  Points are tallied and trophies awarded on Presentation Night.
Car of the Day/Year:  At each run members are asked to choose from the FX/FJ’s in attendance and vote for the one they like the most.  This is done each Club run and votes are tallied until the end of the year to give the Car of the Year winner (presentation night).

Club Plate Registrar
The club offers a Club Plate Register, which enables enthusiasts the opportunity to place their stock vehicles on Club Plates.  Some members choose to take advantage of the benefits of the Club Plate system. There are strict rules involved in this and some driving restrictions do apply to the vehicles.  See our Club Plate Registra for more info.
