Report on the Event

By my reckoning, 35 friends attended a successful social day at Mount Barker Football/Recreation grounds.

24 People took part in a pleasant run to Mount Barker, punctuated by lots of pushbike riders sharing the road, a runner seemingly unconcerned about personal safety and an unexpected Police Breathalyzer stoppage that resulted in the lead 2 cars detained while the convoy sailed on to the destination. (We didn’t give a positive reading)

2 guests joined our club on the day and they were made most welcome. Phil and Monette brought their red RF and purchased caps and a beanie with intention to investigate club apparel in due course, so a big welcome to them both. Thomas and Elle were back from Europe and looking good.

The weather was favourable supporting the picnic day atmosphere.

Our display cars included each model together with numerous modified examples such that your Club took out the prize for Club Display.

Well done all and thanks to everyone for their contribution to a wonderful day.

Dennis Hawkins


Presidents Note 

I would like to thank Dennis for being the driving force behind this event, and to thank all those Motorsport & Social members that took the opportunity to display 27 MX-5s.

We last won the MSCASA Display Day Trophy in 2009, 11 years ago. It is voted by a representative from each car club displaying on the day (and they are not allowed to vote for their own club). I therefore thank them too for voting for the Mazda MX-5 Club of SA display.
