Oc­to­ber 6 date for the 2019 Show and Shine Euroa

Euroa Gazette - - NEWS -

THE Aus­tralian Na­tional Show and Shine Euroa has an­nounced Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 6 as the date of the 2019 event.

Show and Shine vice pres­i­dent Ray Read said that this is in keep­ing with the long-stand­ing pol­icy of run­ning the event on the first Sun­day of Oc­to­ber of each year.

“This should not come as a sur­prise to our reg­u­lar vis­i­tors and ve­hi­cle own­ers, as the “first Sun­day in Oc­to­ber” has been pretty well set as a tra­di­tion over the his­tory of our event,” Mr Read said.

“For the last show we clashed with Bathurst but it was demon­strated that this had lit­tle, if any ef­fect, with record at­ten­dances across the board. In fact, many peo­ple came to the show and shine, and watched the great race on the big TV screen pro­vided by Thomp­son’s Elec­tri­cal at our event.”

For 2019, Bathurst will not be on the same date as the show and shine and is sched­uled for the fol­low­ing week­end.

Plan­ning ac­tiv­i­ties by the show and shine com­mit­tee will com­mence early in the New Year, with sev­eral pro­mo­tional ac­tiv­i­ties al­ready in progress.

Mr Read said that each year the com­mit­tee seeks to have fresh spe­cial at­trac­tions for vis­i­tors.

“In 2017, we had the fan­tas­tic Y2K tur­bine pow­ered su­per­bike, Tes­las and a great dis­play with the po­lice Mercedes ve­hi­cle,” he said.

“For 2018, the Corvettes came in force, and we fea­tured the As­ton Martins and the Jaguars, with dirt bikes in­tro­duced in the two wheel cat­e­gory.

“We have a few sur­prises in mind for next year, and we will an­nounce these as soon as soon as ar­range­ments are fi­nalised.

“Per­haps the time is right for some­thing com­pletely dif­fer­ent.

“In the mean­time, if any­one has any­thing out­stand­ing that they would like us to fea­ture, please let us know.”

The Euroa Show and Shine has now reached the point of be­ing vir­tu­ally self- suf­fi­cient.

Many dis­play ve­hi­cle own­ers re­turn each year, on many oc­ca­sions with some new and ex­cit­ing ad­di­tions to show.

Fo­cus will con­tinue on pro­vid­ing top value-for-money en­ter­tain­ment for fam­ily groups and mo­tor­ing en­thu­si­asts alike.
