Events of the Mercedes-Benz Car Club of WA
The Mercedes-Benz Car Club of WA organises several major annual events:
New Members’ Breakfast
The first major event for the calendar year, our annual Members’ Breakfast, is an opportunity for existing MBCCWA members to welcome to the club everyone who has joined within the last 12 months. A full cooked breakfast is on offer and members only need to bring flasks of hot water for tea and coffee, a picnic blanket and/ or a picnic table and chairs. Also, if you know of anyone else who either own a Mercedes-Benz or is interested in the marque, we encourage you to invite them along as well as this is the perfect time to welcome them to the club.
German Car Day
German Car Day which is held at a different location every year, brings a number of the German Car Clubs together, including Porsche Club of WA, Volkswagen Car Club of WA and BMW club of WA to name a few. It is highly anticipated and eagerly looked forward to by MBCCWA members and is open to anyone with a German car, not only car club members. There is plentry to see and do on the day and is also an entertaining drive to and from the event.
Another major event on our calendar is the President’s Dinner, which is an event organised solely by the Club President for Club members. In addition to dinner, a special guest speaker is invited to share some insight into their specific field. The President’s Dinner is usually held in the beginning of the autumn months.
One of our club’s premier events is our Annual Display Day, which gives all of our members a chance to display their pride and joy to the general public. In past years we have displayed at the Perth Cultural Centre and Kings’ Square in Fremantle to the delight of the passing crowds. Where possible we try to arrange a showcase for the event, for example a specific model celebrating a notable anniversary.
For our November monthly meeting, it has become somewhat of a tradition to meet at our usual club-rooms briefly, before heading off on an evening cruise to a suitable venue for a coffee and a light snack. This gives members a chance to catch up in a different setting, before the busy holiday season begins.
Our December monthly meeting sees members converge on our club-rooms for an informal end-of year celebration, looking back on the year that was.
