2017 Corowa Swim-In & Military Vehicle Gathering
« on: October 30, 2016, 08:54:52 PM »
Hi,
The latest edition of KVE News is now on our website, www.corowaswim-in.org. Here is a direct link to it;
http://media.wix.com/ugd/494429_853dec4a32764f598f60c5226e44067f.pdf
All the up to date information on the event next March is in it.
The themes will be Year of the International and Year of the Carrier, but all military vehicles are encouraged to attend.
As the Carrier theme needs a bit more organising, regarding areas to display their versatilities, etc. We would like owners to make contact with us as soon as possible in order to gauge numbers, etc. Even if you are not sure currently if you can make it, please let us now. If you go to pages 9 and 10, the Carrier co-ordinator, Harvey, has some info for you and a data sheet that he would like completed if possible.
Entry form is downloadable from the website.

It should be made clear that if you intend bringing your military vehicle, you must complete an entry form and pay the fee otherwise you will not be able to take part in the activities. This is in order that you and your vehicle are covered under the KVE insurance. Better to pre-register, rather than doing it when you arrive, that way you will receive a Participants Pack.

best regards,

Talking on a LR facebook page, there was mention of a military vehicle run up the High Country 3 days before the swim in from Mansfield to Chesthunt. 
 Sounds like fun. Any more info ?

Hi guys,
Just a gentle reminder, to those of you who are intending to go to the Corowa Swim-In event, entries are coming in now but Jeeps are still outnumbering Land Rovers, and for International owners remember it is your vehicles theme year.

Please find a link below for the entry form:
https://media.wix.com/ugd/494429_1523c705c1564154bc0c54b95a30763c.pdf

Enter now to avoid missing out on a Participant Pack.

Look forward to seeing you there.

I wont be taking a Land Rover this year Richard, I'm a bit pressed for space. Though we will be at Ball Park on the oval this year.  No broken wrist :). I am finishing 110-595 at the moment.

Cheers,

Ian

I had a phone call from Ray Edsal in Victoria who wants to let people know he would like to organise a Golf afternoon and a Bowls night at Corowa. If you are interested please phone him on 0487299181.
