Mo­tor show to be a treat for dads

Pilbara News - - News - Tom Zaun­mayr

With Fa­ther’s Day com­ing up this week­end, what bet­ter way to celebrate than to sur­round your dad with mo­tors of all shapes and sizes.

The Kar­ratha Bik­ers As­so­ci­a­tion’s an­nual mo­tor show is be­ing held at Hamp­ton Oval in Dampier on Septem­ber 6, from 10am to 4pm.

Or­gan­iser Steve Adam­son said the mo­tor show was ul­ti­mately about rais­ing money for the com­mu­nity.

“We have tried to get all the nice cars hid­den around town down to the oval so own­ers can show their pride and joy off, whether that is a bike, car, fourby or truck,” he said.

“It is cer­tainly a big event … with prob­a­bly a cou­ple of thou­sand peo­ple com­ing down to check out the cars and stalls.

“This is a great op­por­tu­nity for the fam­ily to take dad out for the day to look at all the ve­hi­cles he wished he had him­self.”

Mr Adam­son con­firmed there would be a car with its bon­net open, so men could stand around point­ing and pre­tend­ing they knew what they were talk­ing about.

Awards will be pre­sented across 22 cat­e­gories, rang­ing from clas­sic cars to mod­ern mo­tor­bikes and big rigs.

The crowd-favourite lost fathers’ tent will be present.

Stall­hold­ers in­clude the likes of the Nickol Bay Speed­way and the Kar­ratha Go Kart Club.

Mean­while, down on the beach, the Port Wal­cott Surf Life­sav­ing Club will be hold­ing its first event.

Port Wal­cott SLS spokesman Chris Put­land said the fun day was all about in­tro­duc­ing kids and par­ents to what the club was all about.

“We will have some fun ac­tiv­i­ties for the kids and some very unique surf ac­tiv­i­ties for the par­ents out there too,” he said.

“Surf life­sav­ing is not just a sport; it is ed­u­ca­tion about life sav­ing skills.

“The day will be a chance for ev­ery­one get­ting in­volved and any­one else in­ter­ested to meet for the first time.”

Mr Put­land said a “very spe­cial” event would be held for the dads.
