THE BIRTHDAY RUN
Another tradition on the Melbourne Calendar is the "Birthday Run". This is probably the best supported event in recent times, with more Club vehicles on show than at the Presentation Day. Many members make a special effort to attend on this day and it has become a great day to catch up with old friends and make new ones. In recent years the Club has provided members with a free lunch, a catered "sausage sizzle". There is a special cake cutting ceremony. The "Club man" and "Club lady" of the year both cut the cake, before it is dissected into hundreds of pieces to be shared by all. This Birthday Run has for many years been held at the popular "Jells Park" in Mt. Waverley, but as from 1997 a new venue in Templestowe will be used, which will give the Club more "room to move".
