The Centenary Car Club of the West Rand was founded in 1987, and derived it's name from the Krugersdorp centenary celebrations of that year. The guy who started it all was Eric Clough, now an honorary life member. The annual car show, known as 'Any Dam Wheels Day' was born at this venue, and it was a beautiful setting to have the show. The title of the show reflected that no matter what vehicle you had, it had to be brought to the show at the “dam”, so nobody was swearing, it was just a clever descriptor for the show. The club has an average membership of about 100 / 120 paid up members. Membership has been as high as 140, and as low as about 50 ( when subs are due!) The club is a multi – make club, although in the very beginning, there had been some talk of restricting it to Chevs only. The Ford guys were having none of this, and the restriction was soon lifted. Centenary Car Club meets every 2nd Sunday of the month at the clubhouse at Tarlton, where we have a bar, and braaipacks are always available to braai. The club welcomes visitors, and we enjoy hosting visits from other clubs, for which there is always an open invitation, just as Centenary would like to be invited to visit other clubs.
