Track­side ex­cite­ment on Easter Satur­day

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE -

It’s time to roll the clock back.

It is 1959, a time of short pants and scrapped knees where kids didn’t come in­side un­til the street lights came on.

Girls favoured Hula Hoops and Chatty Cathy. For boys, Hot Wheels and Mr Potato Head were all the rage.

But ev­ery kid knew that the wheel had been in­vented for only one rea­son, to make a billy cart.

This Easter Satur­day, Corowa brings back the magic of yes­ter­year as kids and adults hold the reins to the flex­i­ble front axle, wait­ing for the “ready, set, go” to race their home­made or aero­dy­namic marvel down the main drag at the Corowa Aus­tralian Billy Cart Cham­pi­onships.

Scru­ti­neer­ing will take place from 9am with rac­ing to kick off at 10.30 am and fi­nals will be from 12pm.

Cat­e­gories for this year’s event in­clude Ju­niors (9 years and un­der), 10 – 13 Years, 14 – 17 Years, Open Class, 60 plus and the All Schools Team Chal­lenge. En­tries are now open. Com­peti­tors must ad­here to the con­di­tions of en­try. Down­load an en­try form, from the events web­site www. aus­tralian­bil­ly­cartcham­pi­ons.com.au.

For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact the Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil on (02) 6033 8999.

Corowa’s Aus­tralian Billy Cart Cham­pi­onships will be held this Easter Satur­day.
