The C and H plate Club rego schemes:

The Sydney Torana Club participates in both the H plate and now the new CVS registration schemes. These schemes provide drastically reduced registration and green slip fees.

Should you wish register your vehicle on either scheme the process is simple and fuss free.First and foremost you must be a member of the  Sydney Torana Club. The club accepts any make or marque to utilise the scheme provided they were manufactured over 30 years ago. To move onto either scheme you must obtain a blue slip even if the car in question has full NSW rego.

Our Plate registrar is Alan. He will advise you which scheme you will be required to use subject to what (if any) modifications are fitted to your car. He will be able to answer any questions regarding either scheme and help you to get your car onto the appropriate one (scheme). please email the club sydneytoranaclub@outlook.com for further info.

What are the limitations?
You get 60 days of use when ever and where ever you want to go. (be aware limits to where and how you drive may be imposed by your current insurer).
The definition of 1 day is 12.01am to 11.59pm that day. Entries must be logged before the car is driven and must be in ink.
It is expected that members using the scheme use it in the spirit it was intended. As such there is an expectation owners of H and C plated vehicles become involved with the club and attend events.

 

19th January Bare Foot Bowling

28/02/2017

With St Nic and a blurry news years all but a distant memory, it was time for the Sydney Torana Club’s first event of the 2017 calendar year. Being the hottest part of the year we always try to do something late afternoon early evening. This year bare foot bowling was the call. The club did this two years ago and we thoroughly enjoyed our selves so Ralph thought it a great idea to kick this year off with this run again. 

We arrived at our venue , Campbelltown bowling club at 5.30 for a 6.00pm kick off . Our instructor for the night was George the club director no less! George gave us his tips and let us loose on the greens where our disturbing lack of talent definitely showed. For those who have never held a bowl before there is one side weighted heavier than the other so the bowl will pull to that side. the theory is bowl wide and it will cut back in provided you hold the bowl correctly…….an idea lost on some. It made for great entertainment. One group got uber serious and a tight tussle ensued.In the end a draw was declared and everyone walked off elated. 

Janiene was on the camera recording for posterity so be sure to click the video an watch the action.

I can see why all the old boys take up bowling after ten minutes of having a roll and they were all inside on the beers! We wrapped it up (bowling) at about 7.30 and headed inside for a bite to eat. The onsite Thai restaurant is some of the best i have ever eaten. With 40 plus hungry bowlers decending on the place at once meals came out pretty fast. None of us seemed to mind busy chatting away the evening and telling tall stories.

January is never about the long drive rather a catch up in the new year and a chinwag. Everyone who came seemed to have a great time, I know i did.Thank you to all for making it a great evening out

December Xmas Party a hot Sunday in December the club headed out to Prospect reservoir for the annual Xmas party. A few of us got out there early to secure our spot and set up. Sandy was put in charge of the catering and party supplies. He had something on and couldn’t attend and passed the trailer delivery duties to Darren and Kylie. Disaster struck first thing with the trailer suffering a flat. Never the less we got everything unpacked and set up as the first party goers arrived.It was good to see so many members turn up and even a few prospective members hopefully we will see more of. Lunch was expertly cooked by Darren and Ralph or as he is now Known, Matt Preston. Sandy out did himself catering almost to the sausage and Steak there was  also salad on offer. bbq2016
