A7 Club Membership Form
Seven Clubrooms are located in Units 8 and 9, at 19-23 Kylie Place,
Cheltenham North, Victoria, Australia.
For the first
45 years members met in
rented premises before purchasing unit 8 in Cheltenham,
which with substantial improvements and modifications,
became the Clubs new permanent home. These Clubrooms were
opened on the 4th February 1995 - a purpose-built auditorium
with spare parts department, committee room, library and a
kitchen set up for refreshments after each meeting-
something which the members could be justifiably proud.
Club purchased the next door unit 9 in 2003 and after
renting it out, in 2013 commenced
the major project of joining the two units, substantially expanding the
meeting room and relocating our spares department to a much
larger purpose built area in 2015. The grand new kitchen is
now in use and following completion of a new chair storage
area plus carpeting, the
extension to the clubrooms will be finished and officially
opened later this year.
The Club holds a Monthly
General Meeting (MGM) at the Clubrooms on the first Wednesday of
every month from February to December, where the formal
business of the club is conducted in a meeting chaired by
the Club President, starting at 8.00 pm. All Club members
can have their say in the Club operation.
A traditional ‘Hot Air
Session’ (HAS) is held at the Clubrooms on the third Wednesday of
every month from February to December, where members can get
together to informally discuss Austin Sevens, Club Events
and anything of interest, with from time to time guest
speakers on related topics. HAS meetings start at 8.15 if a
speaker is scheduled.
On the Saturday following
the MGM (or the next Saturday if this clashes with a Club
Event), in conjunction with the Spares Department, a Club
Barbeque is held at the Clubrooms from 12.30 to 3.00 pm.
Seven Spares Department located beside meeting room
