We hope to see you, your family and your friends on the day.
SWANPOOL MOTOR FESTIVAL March 13th
I have attached the flyer for the Swanpool Motor Festival on March 13th.
Several of us attended this event last year & it is an amazingly well
attended event with heaps of very interesting displays of bikes, cars,
trucks & other things and really worth attending. Swanpool is the home of
our member Greg Parish who owns DAM Classic Racing, which is a major sponsor
of this event. In the current Ride Calendar we proposed a two day ride via
Mansfield (to be led by me) staying Saturday night at or near Swanpool &
attending the Festival on the Sunday. Stewie was leading a Sunday group down
& back on the day.
I have checked accommodation options in the area for that weekend & there
isn’t any (including surrounding district to Mansfield & Benalla) I guess
because it’s a Vic long weekend combined with the Festival. Consequently we
will cancel the two day ride plan and just go down on the Sunday. I suggest
departing at 8am from our usual departure point as the show starts at 8am
(but don’t have to be there at 8) approx 1.5 hours to get there, a bit
longer if we go through Beechworth & Miliwa. It only costs $10 to enter
your bike so polish it up & enter it in the display & perhaps win a prize
(if you don’t leave early as I learned last year).
|Rides start at 9.00 am, except for # June, July and August which are 10.00am.
Normal meeting place is Wodonga Place opposite BP Service Station. Unless posted otherwise.
Estimated Distances shown are to the destination.
