Mick M. has great news about the Bandiana Museum visit in March 2018 (one of the various activities and excursions that make for Corowa Swim-In being the best week of the year.)

Mick has been in contact with the REMLR and KVE Committees during his efforts and here is the big news he has for us:

1. "All Systems are go" for the Bandiana Photo Shoot.

"The museum has 20+ Land Rovers of significance and are keen to do what they can to support this activity.

"At this stage the location will either be the compound beside the musuem or the parade ground at Bandiana Sth (the preferred site).

2. "I will contact the Army Newspaper requesting they support this event so it should be good PR for the museum. 

3. "The Museum is also going to contact Land Rover Australia and invite LRA to attend.

4. "I was also informed the museum now has plenty of Perentie documentation which will be of interest to REMLR members.

5.
 VERY IMPORTANT
"I do need to emphasis names need to be to me at the cut off time prior to the event ( I`ll let you know this time later, PROBABLY ONE WEEK PRIOR TO COROWA) as security has been tightened since our last visit.  They will not budge.  NO NAME ON LIST  - NO ENTRY !


+++++++++++
To say the least, a big congratulations and thanks to Mick on all the behind-the-scenes efforts on our behalf.
+++++++++++

Let's Go!
Lets get some firm attendance numbers and lodge our entires and fees for Corowa asap.

Thanks Boys,

As Carzee has said, the museum are happy to support us and I reckon a photo of all the musuems Land Rovers - Some very untique and special vehicles - along with all of our vehicles is really going to make the 70th Year something to remember and A AWESOME PHOTO !!!!

I know a lot of blokes are working hard to get they`re Rovers up and ready for 2018. Good luck and I`m sure any of us will help in any way we can. 

Look forward to seeing you all there.

Cheers,

Mick

Not sure it is relevant here but some Swim-In participants may want to consider attending the Land Rover 70th anniversary to be held in Cooma NSW on the Easter Weekend 2018 a couple of weeks after the Swim-In.

More info to follow when the website is launched in a couple of weeks time.

There's already a post on this somewhere or best to put it on Jan's swim in thread.

Hi Phoenix,

The Land Rover shoot at Bandiana is still a goer.  No further info at this point. More detail will follow closer to the event.

Cheers,

Hey Carzee

Id like to register for Corowa.  Ill will be bringing 49-175 alone down from Brisbane in 2018 and would like to tag along to REMLR events. Is there an event diary for REMLR at this stage?

Anyone else traveling down from Queensland that would like to travel together?

Is REMLR doing a group register of entrants or do I have to register here? http://shownshine.info/HTMLobj-10062/2018_Corowa_New_Flyer___Entry__Form_0002.pdf

Cheers Phil

Thanks for the update and information.

I'll repost about the road trip down from Brisbane to see if anyone would like to travel together or join on the way down.

Merry Christmas to all the REMLR members.

G'day all,
From the link above(https://docs.wixstatic.com/ugd/431291_f94b2c622dfc428a8b1a3ff3e757781c.pdf) there is a day visit to Bandiana on Wednesday 14/3/18 that we need to register for before Corowa.
(Links on  http://www.corowaswim-in.org/ link to 2016 only)
There is also a photo shoot there on the Friday 16/3/18 that we would also like to attend.
I'd expect with invitations out to other groups there will be interest from other Land Rover attendees also.
Do we need to register for both of these events?
Who do we contact (only a name with no other details in the news letter)?
Are non REMLR people invited?

Cheers, Kyle.
