Show­ing off their good qual­i­ties

Comment News (Armadale) - - News -

CAMP Qual­ity’s an­nual Out­back mo­tor­ing ad­ven­ture is set to zoom off from Ar­madale this week­end.

From Oc­to­ber 15 to 21, a fleet of more than 25 quirky themed ve­hi­cles will travel over 2000 kilo­me­tres from Ar­madale to the Gold­fields and back to Northam for the 2017 wesCarpade.

The fleet takes off from Ye Ole Nar­ro­gin Inn/Her­itage Mo­tel in Ar­madale on Sun­day, with the cars at the start line by 8.15am for a 8.30am take-off.

Each team be­hind ev­ery dec­o­rated car ded­i­cates much of the year to ac­cru­ing spon­sor­ship for their ad­ven­ture, funds that will di­rectly sup­port Camp Qual­ity and kids af­fected by can­cer.

Camp Qual­ity state man­ager Steve Archibald said the event would not be pos­si­ble with­out the sup­port of lo­cal busi­nesses.

“It’s this kind of gen­eros­ity that en­sures funds raised go di­rectly to sup­port­ing fam­i­lies in Western Aus­tralia to not only cope, but thrive,” he said.

Lo­cal busi­ness­man Troy ‘Tiny’ Dun­can is look­ing for­ward to his sixth wesCarpade with his ‘T-Rex’ car. “I love it ev­ery year,” he said. “On my first event, I saw the di­rect im­pact it made to the kids at one of the camps in Bus­sel­ton.

“Af­ter that ex­pe­ri­ence, I just couldn’t sit back and do noth­ing at all, and I’ve con­tin­ued sup­port­ing as much as pos­si­ble ever since.”
