The GOC holds an annual gathering for members and cars which normally takes place in early July each year.
The event is normally organised by local are groups, and the location and venues vary to try to make the event more accessible to club members.

Other Activities & Support
The Club maintains registers of the history and details of individualvehicles.
We aim to provide a comprehensive spares service to ensure that any Gilbern part required by Club members is available. The Club currently stocks a range of spare parts for all models.
We also maintain a register of suppliers of other items and maintain contact with them to ensure, wherever possible, that all parts remain in production. In addition, the Club may invest in the production of items that are no longer commercially available.
The Club provides an advisory service through its ‘marque specialist’ members to provide advice on restoration, modifications, repairs and any other matters of concern.
The Club offers an attractive range of ‘regalia’ to Members, including, shirts, fleeces, wallets, key rings, and mugs.
Local Area Groups meet on a regular basis. The Committee is keen that members should arrange meetings in this way and the Secretary will be happy to hear from any member who is interested in doing so.
Events organised during the year include the Annual General Meeting, National Day, and local social gatherings that usually take place on weekday evenings and weekends. Club members also take part in sprints, hillclimbs and historic car rallies.
Reprints of handbooks are available, covering the Genie and Invader series
Communication between members is an essential feature of the Club’s activities.
Every member is sent a copy of our regular journal, “Rarebit”. Members contribute details of Club activities, events, notes on the availability of spares and accessories, reports of regional meetings, technical articles and “For Sale” and “Wanted” advertisements.
The Club maintains a website at www.gilbernoc.co.uk.
Rarebit is supported by the forums on the ‘Gilblog’ section of the Club website, including sections that are available for public view and sections that are only accessible to Club members.
The Club has published collections of magazine road-tests and articles.
