For those who are interested the awards this year went to:

1. Mal Mackay Memorial Award: Steve Dietmann who is always happy, enjoys meeting everybody and sharing information on vehicles. He is very helpful and an all round good fellow as a collector and restorer.

2. Hard Luck award: Tom Rolfe who was 2 hours from home and the generator packed it in.

3. Breakdown Award: Ray Edsall arrived at Corowa on the back of a truck after his generator on the Dodge carryall seized.

4. Longest distance travelled in a military vehicle went toGary Schluter from Perth in a Landrover with a speedo on the blink.

5. Encouragement Award: Jake Neville who is the youngest military vehicle restorer and owner. He also received nominations for People's Favourite Choice.

6. People's Favourite Choice: went to Rick Cove for his 1916 Albion

Each of the participant packs contained a Voting Form and this is the way we determine the Award Winners. Thanks for those people who submitted their forms by Midday on Saturday.

Below is another weary participant still at Corowa

Yes, an interesting slice of history, well worth saveing. Do you look like breaking even or making another donation to the saveing of history?

Here are a few more frame grabs from the video.

The FV 432 (I think)



The ever impressive Manfred in his Kübelwagen



Plenty of splashes for everyone!

Default Great photo and where did you get the embroidered shirts

Hi Keith, Howard & Douglas

Great photo and where did you get the embroidered number shirts. I enjoy being able to put faces with names that come up through the forum.

Gives me an idea to do something similar when putting pictures in our club newsletter. I often know people and their vehicles but have a hard time matching up the names.

Cheers Phil

For those that might be interested I will have the Marmon Herrington, gun and limber at the Winchelsea Living History weekend on 9-10 April. It will be set up and firing (blanks) during re-enactments along with another 25 pounder. And a lot of other stuff.

Default My return to Corowa

I just got back home to the UK yesterday. My ten days at Corowa were very enjoyable, catching up with many old friends, and meeting some new faces whom I had only communicated by internet. Thank you to everyone who made me most welcome there. This was my 5th visit to the event, but not having been since 2001, it is now much larger of course, but the friendly atmosphere is still there. With so many things to do and people to talk to, I am sorry if I missed anyone.

regards, Richard
