These are why we raise the money each year, drive the kms and get dusty and dirty and turn up at places like Boorooloola, Bamaga, Richmond, Balranald, Broken Hill, Goodooga, Top Springs, Derby and Narrandera.

NSW Bash had their Final Dinner in Bowral on August 16. Part of the evening are the trophy presentations for the largest fund raisers and awards like the Perservance Award, the Putters Award, the Most Breakdowns etc.
Spirit of the Bash – outright winners of the Bash went to Car 555 the Ross team – Duncan and his two sons, James and Logan. Such a fun, helpful, engaging and colourful team. Sally Ross, our trusty Bash Coordinator must be very proud and happy also. Well deserved guys!

Then the surprise of the night was the inductees of the Bash Hall of Fame. I GOT inducted!!! for my 15 years participation in Variety and volunteer work for Sunshine Coaches and generally hanging around. I can only do it with great support from crew – thank Brendon and his family, and my faithful mechanical magic men – Steve Corney and Evan at Mother Trekkers, Garry Williams and Ian Banks.
