    Robert,

    Have you "failed by succeeding"?

    I thought the idea was to have an event that wasn't bound by club affiliation, therefore a very informal approach with only one stiff rule... Now it's been proven to work, it gets the imprimatur of a club - who I deliberately eschew!

    The "Tyre kicking day" is, I consider open to all French car owners.

    Without the French car clubs placing the "Tyre kicking day" on their calendars there is no way club plated cars may attend.

    There will still be no formal rules, alliances or affiliations and the day is basically run "by the people for the people" (as someone once said).

    See you there on the 3rd Sunday of each month? (I hope).

    [QUOTE=BIGRR;1237261][QUOTE=BIGRR;1236748]
    FRENCH CAR OWNERS MONTHLY TYRE KICKING DAY

    17th MAY 2015
    I have been hanging around car clubs for about 30 years. I am a member of 2 car clubs (3 counting Aussiefrogs). I for years attended monthly meetings.
    During my club membership days I found that the formal part of the car club general meetings BORING! (Probably necessary, though).
    The really enjoyable parts of the meetings are the pre and post formal meeting “TYRE KICKING”.
    I propose that Sydney/NSW Froggy car owners hold a once a month very informal “TYRE KICKING” gathering.
    Regional, interstate “froggers” along with all age groups and sexes are welcome.
    No committees and no memberships are required.
    The “TYRE KICKING” will be held every 3rd Sunday of the month at a central location, commencing nominally around 10:30am.
    The “TYRE KICKING” should continue through till all, tyre kicking, parts exchanging, information gathering/sharing, boot sales, spruiking, skiting and general “B___S____ing” is complete.
    Attendees may arrive and leave at any time at their leisure, attendees may continue on to a walk, a bike ride, a river ferry trip, a meal, a drive, a drink, an engine overhaul or whatever!

    Anything formal along with any “hooning” shall be frowned upon.



    “FRENCH CAR OWNERS MONTHLY TYRE KICKING DAY”

    Starting at around 10:30am.

    LOCATION*: Newington Reserve business car park at the north western corner of Holker Street and Slough Avenue, Silverwater 2128.
    (Sydney Olympic Park area)
    (only 300m south of where the French Car Day is held).
    (Enter from southern lane of Holker St or from Slough Avenue)


    *33degrees 49minutes 53seconds SOUTH - 151degrees 03minutes 08seconds EAST.
    *I know the gathering place may not please all, though it is central for most (gives us westies a go), is a sizable well maintained and lawned area that should not be parked out, has amounts of shade, toilets (rough) and under cover awnings for rain, nearby Newington shopping center (within 500m), a nearby river, walks, playgrounds and pushbike tracks for mum and the kids (1km). You may also wish to arrive by ferry (3km) (very pleasant transport).
    Note: Any excuse not to attend will be accepted!

    If you call in someone will hopefully see you there!


    NOTE: This event has been added to the Peugeot Car Club of NSW (inc) Calandar. *This means that Club Plated cars of the NSW Pug club may attend
    (along with all the correct club notifications etc).

    PS: If other French car clubs were to add this event to their calendars it would be a good monthly daylight run their club plated car???

    I know I'm going out on a limb here, but I believe it's the third Sunday in April, just like it says in post #57.

    G'day,
    Easter Sunday, and, daughter's 12th wedding anniversary.
    Cheap motel [with spa] is probably out of the question, so if I wake in time, I will be there.
