11th JUNE 2021

Hello from your President Kerry Benson

m: 0409 860 001

Next meeting 7.30pm Wednesday 23rd June 2021. Note – Vice President David Chawthorn will be Chairing the meeting. I will be touring Northern Territory 19th June – 1st July.

Last meeting, we battled the cold and competition from the State of Origin and only 35 attended. We enjoyed a special presentation from club members Dan Matthews, Bob and Mike Muir on their club motor racing adventures with Manly Warringah Sporting Car Club at Wakefield Park. Some exciting opportunities at reasonable cost for those wanting to participate. Thank you, guys, for an excellent presentation.  Later, football fans were able to watch the game from the comfort of the bar after the meeting and NSW was happy - most happily socialised there.  

At this weeks General Meeting, Graeme Smith spoke about our need for a new role within PMEA.

If you are interested and wish to discuss, please contact me, or email Graeme on

AGM will be on Wednesday 7th July 2021, at 7.30pm. Nominations for committee positions must be received in writing by Secretary, Gavin by 5pm Wed 30 June 2021. Click HERE to view CLUB PROCEDURES on website or Click HERE to view the CONSTITUTION for AGM rules. General meeting follows the AGM.

A novelty auction will be held on 7th July to sell two historic “Pittwater” number plate attachments (auctioned separately) which are new “old stock” and unavailable since 2016. In the “old days” the Club registrar would issue number plates and these club attachments were screwed to the number plate to identify your club. These were found recently amongst our old regalia supplies by member Jeff Tinker. Save up and bid well – all funds going to our club.



Membership Renewal fees are now being accepted for the 2021 – 2022 financial year. Full details can be found on the Membership Renewal Form. Full renewal information should have also arrived by post to your letter box. Payments can be made at Club Meetings or you may EFT $50.00 to PMEA BSB 062205 ACC 1046 7182 to ensure registration/CTP on your Historic/Classic car does not lapse and that you will be entitled to vote at the upcoming AGM.



Happy motoring and enjoy your club – your attendance is our measure of success!
