Warm up with win­ter show

The Cobram Courier - - NEWS - By Jenna Bishop

Win­ter can be drab, but there will be plenty of colour at this Sun­day’s Tocumwal Win­ter Swap Meet and Show ’n’ Shine.

This will be the eighth year the event has been held, with more than 1000 peo­ple through the gates in each pre­vi­ous year.

Pre­sented by Mild 2 Wild Rod and Cus­tom, the event will fea­ture more than 120 dif­fer­ent show ’n’ shine ve­hi­cles, in­clud­ing cars, trucks and mo­tor­cy­cles.

One of the or­gan­is­ers, Eric Finch, said there would be nine dif­fer­ent cat­e­gory prizes, in­clud­ing five peo­ples’ choice prizes, three for bikes and one for trucks.

To warm peo­ple up, Mr Finch said the Ro­tary Club would be cook­ing ba­con and egg rolls, and the event was fully catered.

‘‘There will also be a few bon­fires for peo­ple to warm up,’’ he said.

‘‘There’s usu­ally not much go­ing on on a cold win­ter’s day, so we en­cour­age ev­ery­one to come down for some en­ter­tain­ment.’’

The swap meet and show ’n’ shine will be held at the Tocumwal foot­ball grounds, gates open at 6 am for site hold­ers and 7 am for the gen­eral pub­lic. Sites are $15, pub­lic en­try is $5 and car en­try is $5, in­clud­ing a driver.

To book a site or for more in­for­ma­tion, phone Peter on 0438 390 621 or Eric on 0427 352 171.
