Welcome to Our Club!

Custom Membership Certificate

Your Membership Certificate will be custom made out to you showing both your Membership Number and Membership Level and will be emailed to you directly. As this is a custom document, please allow several weeks for it to arrive.

Your Polo Shirt

Included with your new membership is a Club Polo Shirt. This shirt in your nominated size will be ordered from our Merchandise Co-ordinator, Tamara Ruxton and will be available for you to collect at our next Club General Meeting with a copy of the latest club magazine.

Club General Meetings

Club General Meetings are informal and focused on members enjoying themselves. Business is conducted at Committee Meetings and Committee Members provide a brief report to members about what is happening in their area of responsibility. These reports are informative and mostly backed by a media presentation of recent events. Members can ask questions of Committee Members at this time. We try and keep each General Meeting interesting and informative with Guest Speakers being invited to present around 6 times each year. There is ample time to socialise at these meetings and get to know like minded people with a similar great choice in motor vehicles.

General Meetings commence at 8:00 pm on the first Tuesday of each month (except January) in the ARDC Hinxman Room which is on top of the Pits at the Control Tower end in Sydney Motorsport Park. Entry is via Gate A, off Ferrers Road Eastern Creek.

Light food and drink is available from the ARDC’s “Garage 51” which is a licensed Cafe that is also situated over the pits overlooking the race track’s Turn 1. Some members arrive early direct from work and have dinner there before the meeting starts. Parking is with the other cars in the Paddock area at the Control Tower end, then go up the stairs to the Hinxman Room.

CAMS Cards

Our club is affiliated with the Confederation of Australian Motorsport (CAMS) and membership of our Club also provides the ability for our members to enter any CAMS permitted event nationally. To facilitate this a CAMS card will be sent to financial members each year (2 cards for Family Members) and these cards will be required to be presented when registering for any CAMS event.

CAMS affiliated club membership also provides our members the additional insurance cover provided by CAMS when participating in Club events or activities where competitive or social.

Communication

Communication to our members is through the Clubs website www.hsvclubnsw.com , email broadcasts and the Club Magazine which is issued every 2 months.

To receive timely information, we recommend that you bookmark (or add to your “Favorites”) the Club’s website address and regularly check it for daily updates of Club News and Events.

The Club Calendar should also be regularly checked to see when the activities that you are interested in have been planned.

We also provide links to as much background information as possible on this site.

Private Facebook Group

This Facebook Group is private to Club Members only. If you don’t currently have access to this Group please click here to email our Social Media Administrator who will arrange access for you.

Please Keep Us Up To Date!

It is quite important to keep your email and mailing address current on our Membership Register. If either is incorrect, you won’t receive the Club Magazine or any emailed information or updates.

We also need to be advised of any change in the car you own so your new vehicle is registered with the Club and therefore eligible to participate in Club events. Please let the Membership Secretary know of any changes to your membership information as soon as possible.

Also, it will be very important for you to maintain your My Account information on our Club website in order to access “Member Only” information, activities and benefits. Details of this are included in the “Club Website” section below.

Club Website

Our Club Website www.hsvclubnsw.com embraces the latest technologies and is the platform to take the Club into the future with it’s broad range of capabilities.

Two key capabilities it has is the ability to correctly present on a full range of desktop and mobile devices, as well as an online shopping system.

The online shopping system not only enables the purchasing of club merchandise online but is being used to manage our events as well.

Booking events is a one step process, except when members need to pay a 3rd party (eg All Holden Day).

To enable us to do this we will  be using a combination of information captured when booking an event (eg number of adults, number of children, meeting point selection etc) and the information recorded by each member in the My Account section of the website.

Having a completed My Account record is necessary for all members for several reasons:

1.  It forms the membership data base from which information such as mailing addresses are accessed for delivery of the Club’s magazine.

2. It will save you having to enter the same information each time that you enter an event or buy Club merchandise online.

3. “Members Only” events, merchandise and pages will only be accessible to members who have logged in to our website.

If you have not completed your My Account record you will not be able to gain access to these “Members Only” items, events or web pages.

 

To complete your My Account record, please:

  1. Click on the “Login/My Account” link at the top of the Club web page and log in if you have not already done so.
  2. Click onto “Account Details”. You can change your password and email address here but most importantly please choose your Membership Type from the drop down and save your changes.
  3. The click on “Addresses”, and then on the blue “Edit” link at the right side of “Billing Address”. This will take you to the section where the remainder of your account information is held.
  4. Please add your mobile phone number and then select from the drop down options for Your Car Series, Your Car Model, Your Car Colour, Your Car Rego and Your Car Build Date.

If you have more than one vehicle please include the vehicle you will be taking on runs.

The required information will be recorded with your entry booking and sent to the Committee Member organising the event automatically by the system.

Please note that your Shipping and Billing addresses remain securely held by the online shopping system and will not be made available to anyone, committee members included. The Club has developed a strong Privacy Policy and this can be viewed by clicking on the “Terms & Conditions” link at the bottom of the website.

It is important to know that we’ll be increasingly using the new website’s capabilities as our service to members evolves and most of this will be targeted at “Members Only”.

Accordingly, it will be very important for all members to complete all their details in My Account and keep them up to date to avoid missing out on members benefits as they become available.

Any questions, please email one of the Website Administration Team:
