RSL Park became the focus of a successful Car/Bike ‘Show and Shine’ organised by the Corowa and District Car Club last weekend as the ‘rain gods’ fortunately delayed heavy showers until it was all over.
Federation Council, the RSL, along with local sponsors saw the benefit in financially supporting this major community event which attracted large numbers despite the predicted weather conditions.
Over 200 cars and bikes attracted motor enthusiasts to the picturesque RSL Park, as patrons enjoyed the break in weather to see and reminisce over historic, vintage, modern and classic vehicles.
As local Corowa resident, Lionel Gilman, a member of the Murray Heritage motorists group, said – “this show has gone off without a hitch. It was well organised, had a good range of vehicles, it had something for everyone and it also attracted a lot of interest from people from far and wide”.
Max’s museum in Corowa saw more that than 25 vehicles shuttled down from the museum to RSL Park in a prominent position, adjacent to Wahgunyah Speedway cars who have also maintained and supported an interest in this event.
Deputy Mayor Shaun Whitechurch was MC at the show and said he was impressed with distances enthusiasts had travelled from Geelong, Melbourne, Hay, Junee, Wagga, Albury, Wodonga, Wangaratta and Melbourne to make the pilgrimage.
Hundreds of local people also attended the Show and Shine and demonstrated their strong support for this event.
