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.
FRENCH CAR OWNERS MONTHLY TYRE KICKING DAY
(French cars are also welcome )
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”.
Sydney/NSW Froggy car owners NOW 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” is held the 3rd Sunday of each month , commencing nominally around 10:30am & usually people drift off from about 1:30pm.
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! Bring your club plated car or bring your dog?
NOTE: Anything formal is strictly banned.

*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, a Free gas barbeque, nearby Newington shopping center (COFFEE 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!
