Rich River Rod and Custom Inc
We love hot rods and customs
The Rich River Rod and Custom Club Inc. was formed as a result of a meeting held to gauge local interest in Hot Rodding in the Echuca-Moama area during 1988 and has been operating since then.
The aim of the club is to promote the building, safe use and enjoyment of street rods, custom cars and other cars of interest.
Membership is open to any person, over the age of eighteen years, who has an interest in street rods, custom cars or other cars of interest. Prospective members must attend three club meetings before applying to join the club and applications for membership must be approved by the Club Committee. Club members must maintain membership of the ASRF for the duration of their club membership to ensure that they have insurance coverage for club activities.
Members are expected to be active in club activities and to attend club events when family and work commitments permit. The club holds monthly club meetings (usually at member’s homes), organises club outings and events and members often attend other club’s Rod Runs and ASRF sanctioned events.
The Rich River Rod Run is held in March every second year (in even years) and attracts entrants from all over Australia. Club members are expected to make a major commitment to our Rod Run in order to ensure its continued success.
The club does not have its own club registration scheme as it participates in the Street Rod Registration scheme run by the ASRF. This provides concessional registration to members who have street rods or modified vehicles that meet the current inspection and roadworthy requirements. New members usually need to demonstrate at least twelve months active participation in the club before any registration applications will be supported by the club.
The affairs of the club are managed by an elected Committee comprising the President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer and four ordinary members. The club is an Incorporated Association in Victoria and the Constitution was up-dated to meet the latest requirements and adopted during 2013.
There are currently 47 members of the club, including six Life Members, who reside in or near Echuca, Moama, Deniliquin, Mathoura, Rochester and Kyabram.
