SPORT NEWS TIPS firstname.lastname@example.org Mount Gambier 08 8723 8989 draining Of the nominated 57 cars ranging from 1920 models through to some as late as 1985, half are owned by local area enthusiasts while many of the remainder are from Adelaide or Melbourne. With many visitors expected to arrive tomorrow the clubrooms at 15 Shelton Street will be open from 3pm for registrations and free coffee or tea with cake. For those wishing to bring their own tea to eat at the clubrooms, the facility will be available from 6pm and will later feature a quiz with the bar open but no BYO alcohol. Registrations continue from 8am on Saturday prior to runs to Nene Valley and Carpenter Rocks and an afternoon lunch at the Kongorong Football Club before returning to the Shelton Street rooms for a 5pm free “Happy Hour” with drinks and nibbles ahead of a two course evening meal from 6.30pm followed by some interesting guest speakers. Cars will assemble for public viewing from 7.30am at the Lady Nelson Visitor Centre on Sunday followed by a run to Dartmoor and Heywood with a choice of return routes to be at Mount Gambier for a big evening at the West Gambier Football Club where participating cars can be parked on the oval in front of the venue and tea, music, dancing, award presentations and spot prizes will complete the day. In conjunction with Monday’s Australia Day breakfast at the Cave Gardens, tour vehicles will assemble for another public display in Commercial Street East when it is hoped that extra cars from one or two similar clubs will add to the number before the tour comes to an end and all make moves to return home.
