Thank You

Thursday 5th Mar

A big thank you to Norton Ford Warrnambool for putting in the time to ensure that my bash car is safe for the bash drive and all the extras added on. A special thanks to Jeff Heard (Service Manager) for all the phone calls getting parts and others to come on board and help, Ash Lucas (Serior Technician and Fabricator) for your time, workmanship, and enthusiasm which is the greatest support I could ask for. And John who is supporting me in this great adventure even thought he shakes his head a number of times a day wondering what next. John I love you as much as my car.

Bash Car

Friday 28th Feb

Carmel and I are on our way to joining the Variety Bash Family this year. This year is rather special as it is 30 years since the Variety first started. We share two Grandsons, love each others company and love nothing better than a road trip. We are both from farming backgrounds so our theme for our lovely girl (the car) is farming. Both of us are very lucky because we live in small communitys in the South West of Victoria, communitys that are priceless. We have been encouraged and helped from the very begining so this event has very much become a community afare.  

A big thank you Peter Burns for checking out the Ute before we brought it and for going into the Variety Bash Office and collecting the donation boxes.

Thank you to my Sponsors
