Club activities

The club meets on the SECOND Thursday of each odd numbered month, commencing at 7.30 pm unless otherwise notified in the club newsletter or on this website, at SHANNONS,  Fyshwick. Meetings are an opportunity to hear guest speakers, technical demonstrations or discussions as well as having a social chat over coffee and cake. In even-numbered months, we get even less formal, with an outing to a reasonably priced eating house on the SECOND Thursday.

A variety of other events occurs during the the year with at least one activity scheduled for each month.  Details can be found on the Events page and in Morris Matters, the club newsletter which is circulated during the first week of each month, except for January.

Regular activities include garage crawls where we get to see everyone’s mess; technical days when members’ cars are raised on a hoist and free advice is provided on their condition; social activities like coffee runs, show ‘n’ shines, cruises, swap meets; participation in rallies including the WHEELS Expo and Marques in the Park, a must for every Club member; or the opportunity to develop your driving skills on the skid pan.

Experience is one of the greatest assets inherent in any club and ours is no exception. Our members have an incredible depth of knowledge about Morris Minors, from assisting with a concours standard showpiece to most modifications. And there’s no shortage of advice and assistance on how-to do it or where to get a hard-to-find part, including supplies of spare parts for sale or exchange among members.

The Club boasts a small but extremely interesting and comprehensive library which complements members’ knowledge. This has been catalogued and is readily available to Club Members. Inquiries can be made to librarian@canberramorrisminors.org. Newsletters are exchanged with other clubs. This exchange of information extends the network of technical information and general interest in Morris Minors to a national level.
