Narooma Annual Car Show Jan 26th


Eurobodalla Shire is backing us again and allowing free use of NATA Oval on the Princes Highway/Bluewater Drive - so that's FANTASTIC news and many thanks to them!

Club Narooma is our first major Business Sponsor. Sadly the advertised Rockabilly Dinner/Dance has been cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control.

NTW has offered us $800 (!!!) worth of Avenger Tyres as a prize!

Casey's Cafe (Canty St Narooma) has joined us as a sponsor and will be offering up FREE COFFEE cards on site and in the showbags. By the way, their steak sandwiches are fabulous!

Kmart Bateman's Bay will be giving us a bunch of shopping vouchers to hand around!

Pop-Up Putt Putt will be there offering amazingly fun entertainment for the young and the young at heart (and anyone who needs a challenge). The Tree Motel has joined us as a Sponsor, and a great big Thankyou to them. They have a wonderful pool in a gloriously posh setting by the way. Thoroughly recommend The Tree Motel if you'll be staying here for the weekend.

Seasalt Cafe Dalmeny has joined us as a sponsor! Many thanks to them (and their coffee is absolutely first rate).

Compleat Angler Narooma has joined us as a sponsor, many thanks to them. If you are a fishing person, they are THE place to go.

Mannat Residency/Roxy's Cafe have joined us as a sponsor. Great food and a great place to stay. Mannat Restaurant might even have a pop-up cafe on the day.

Shannon's have offered us their Supertruck!

Extra and warm Thankyou to Di Riley for her fundraising and her event organising talent and expertise.

Any sponsorship funding left over will be donated to charity.

Sadly, local business has been disappointing in their support of this event, but this event will remain FREE no matter what!

(No oil, no coolant, no environmental risk). We're calling it the Corolla Brick n Bust.

Family friendly events, with prizes, will include traditional favourites like a 3-legged race (parent and child); cardboard box car race for the littlies (they create a car from a box, decorate it, then we have a race!); Hoop toss; Beanbag toss, etc. We hope to have someone of some celebrity to run these events.

Random prizes of Narooma Motors service vouchers, and as much promotional stuff as we can muster, possible cash prizes and whatever else we can think of!
