Rock n Roll...
This seasons gala event, the SMCWA Trophy Presentation Night will take on a Rock n Roll theme this year with prizes for ''Best Dressed''. To all SMCWA members, family and friends please put April 21st into your diary as its a night not to be missed. Over 200 people attended last years trophy night so please RSVP the girls in the canteen by no later than April 7th.
How good was it to see the boy's in action and in particular to see Glen & Nathan O'Brien at Pinjar Park. It was great to see and going by the amount of emails and messages received the loyal Pinjar fans loved every minute of it. Having both Glen & Nathan back together for the ''Smarter than Smoking'' Sidecar Spectacular was a dream come true for the club and proved to be a absolute cracker event with no less than 13 outfits racing on the night. The SMCWA took the bold move to make the March 17th a double header event after Heathway's took on the naming rights for the ''Smarter than Smoking'' Sidecar Spectacular which proved to be a master stroke for the club.
