Hosted by the Combined Rotary Clubs of Lake Macquarie and in association with Lake Macquarie City Council, the third Lake Mac Autumn Fair was held on Saturday 6th May at Speers Point Park, Lake Macquarie.
This family fun day featured numerous activities for children. Also a classic car display, including of cars owned by MBCCC members . The Police, RFS & Marine Rescue were also in attendance. There were boat rides and loads of market stalls and food with non-stop entertainment.
Money raised supports Rotary charity projects.
Held in the Myall Park at Hawks Nest, the motor show returned for 2023 after cancellations in previous years.
A good turn up, with a very wide variety of cars, that filled the sports oval to capacity. Five MBCCC members attended, but not necessarily with their Mercedes-Benz’s. Instead, in a late 1970s Ford USA Country Squire station wagon and early 1960s Valiant S Series sedan. These complemented a Mercedes-Benz A207 E 250 cabriolet and V126 560 SEL sedan.
The Mercedes-Benz Club of NSW held their Sydney German Autofest event on 12th February (re-scheduled from 30th October last year due to wet weather).
Some MBCCC members attended. The first three photos are of our cars. They were amongst a very large number of people and vehicles, with the Gough Whitlam Park in Earlwood at capacity. A great day!
Our first event for 2023 was held on 17th January. The venue was in the grounds next to Rathmines Performing Arts Theatre beside Lake Macquarie. Everyone brought a picnic lunch and enjoyed the pleasant scenery.
It was excellent to meet some new members and their cars. Nev and Joy came in their 2009 C280 and Marcus and Marion drove their 1990 300 SE. Also, Suzanne and Allan attended in their 2020 E450 convertible.
Among the older Mercedes cars present was Gerry and Jane’s 1983 Mercedes 280E. John and Carol’s 1976 280 SE, which was purchased new by John when in Germany, came along too. This is the first run we’ve seen the car on in a while, so it was a nice surprise.
