Hi All,
A big thank you to all those who have entried this year’s Nationals.

I did include a late fee on the entry form as we had travel restriction due to Covid early last year, when I did the entry from.
With such a large number of entries this year and the space I have to work with for the Show and Shine, we will not be able to accept any late entries.

We are investigating an alternative site so this may change.

This is regrettable but I have little choice.

Cheers,
Roger

All Entrants letters send yesterday, so keep an eye in your letter boxes.

Not sure on Aussie Post speed but if you have nothing by the 20th May, flick me an email
fbekholdencarclubofsa@gmail.com

Cheers,
Roger

Thanks for letting me know about the car not attending.
Every little bit of space helps for the Show and Shine on Sunday.

For those who like a coffee in the morning, we have 2 coffee vans coming to Saturday morning sign in. :clap: :clap:

Cheers,
Roger

As mentioned earlier, there will be pre stage at the football club carpark.
This is between the Big 4 caravan park and the high school.
We will line up the cars in their categories and wait there until the traffic marshall instructs you to move to Coulthard House.
Please be ready to go as I know, we all like chat in the morning, especially about car stuff.

The Show and Shine is from 10.00 am so I need you at the Football carpark at 9.00 am
There are 91 cars for the guys to lineup :clap:

Please be on time or you will not get in. :OMGGG:
Coulthard House is surrounded by gardens and has one entry point.

Traffic marshalls will be in orange vests so easy to see.
Cheers,
Roger

I took Frankenstein for a final run down to Bunbury and back yesterday to give him a shake down, had the car bra on, did 250kms didn't get any hotter than normal, worked out I'm only getting about 14lt/100kms so I'm probably only going to safely get about 400kms on a tank that's without running it down too low.
Packing the bags and loading Frank up today then leaving early tomorrow morning with Stony and Sherri for to trip across the paddock 🍾👏👏👏👏👏

The ute is in Adelaide - had a bit of an issue with CEVA buggering the dates up and was nearly going to have drive both ways but to their credit they sorted it out quick smart :thumbsup:

We fly to Adelaide next Friday morning and head west to the Eyre peninsula for a week then back to Nuri.
