HCVCA's 2014 Annual Display Day
As Sandown Racecourse is not available throughout the whole of October and November 2014 the Committee have decided to move the display. It will now be held at the Yarra Glen Racecourse, in Yarra Glen on the 9th November.
There as some great advantages with the move,
We can fit in many more trucks.
Bring your own meat and use the free bbqs.
Free overnight camping on the Saturday night before the display. Showers available.
The Historic Commercial Vehicle Club welcomes new members, no matter what type of vehicle they own and even if they do not own a vehicle at all, just an interest in older commercial vehicles is all that is needed.
You can download a Membership Application Form for the Historic Commercial Vehicle Club of Australia in a format that suits you and once you have filled it, return it to the Club using the details on the Form.
