Our history:

The club was formed in 1995 by Geoffrey Berry.  There were many discussions held around his kitchen table and many beverages consumed as the idea became a reality.  The five original members worked hard to get the club established in the Rodding Scene attending numerous Rod Runs held by other clubs and held numerous events including Rock n Roll Dances to raise funds to  launch the new club.

The club has come a long way since its beginnings.  In 2002  the club hosted the Australian Street Rod State Run.
The Centre State Swap Meet is one of Central Victoria’s biggest one day swap meets.  Each year it continues to grow and improve.  It is held on a Sunday usually the closest to the Australia Day Long Weekend in January.

We also present The Fathers Day Show and Shine obviously on the first Sunday in September. This event also continues to grow and is now held at and around our clubhouse at the Bendigo Airport.
