Default Corowa 2019

In 2019 we will be celebrating 40 years of the Corowa Swim-In. It will start on Monday 11th March and end of Sunday 17th March.

We have started putting together a book which will be released at the 40th Anniversary of the event in 2020 (41st year). We encourage any person who has attended the Swim-In to participate in writing stories on their experiences of the event. Please send me a message so I can forward you a form to get you started. kveinc@optusnet.com.au

I am sure there are a number of stories which you could all share along with some photos.

After attending Corowa since 1980 (when it started I am sure I can put some information together) along with trip reports which have been included on the website and anyone who has written a report can forward it to Richard Farrant, our Webmaster and President.

With 2018 being our largest attendance of vehicles we know the event will get bigger in the future. 270 vehicles with 111 Land Rovers which were the theme vehicles and 84 jeeps plus 3 GPA's and a number of other types of vehicles.

We are now looking forward to the 2019 themes which are Year of the Amphibian and Year of the Prototype.
In 2020 we will have year of the motorcycle and then in 2021 is another Year of the Jeep. Will those with Land Rovers try and beat the number of jeeps! Anything is possible with the release of Land rovers through Frontline Machinery.
In 2022 it will be Year of the Heavy Metal.

Default Latest KVE News is now online with news of the Corowa Swim-In

Hi,
To all those who come to the Annual Corowa Swim-In & Military Vehicle Gathering in Corowa NSW, Australia, or to those that are thinking of attending, the latest KVE News is now online on our website, www.corowaswim-in.org Click on to one of the cover page icons for the October issue of the newsletter, or try this direct link; https://docs.wixstatic.com/ugd/43129...ab5b84aa24.pdf

All the up to date information is in it. The themes for 2019 are Year of the Amphibian and Year of the Prototype. As always, we encourage all types of military vehicles to attend, the more the merrier!
The reason for returning to the Amphibian theme again is that 2019 will be the 40th consecutive annual event at Corowa and it all started with a meet up of amphibious jeep owners with other ex-military vehicles tagging along....... it just grew from there to the largest gathering of ex-military vehicles in Australia.

The form for booking a Swap Meet stall is also on the Download page as well as Participants entry form.

If you are planning on coming to Corowa in March, please get your entry forms in as soon as possible so we can get a good idea of numbers in advance for us to order items for the Participant Packs.

We have been awarded a sponsorship grant from the Federation Council at Corowa. The council and townsfolk really do appreciate our precence every year and do all they can to help us.

If you have any questions, please contact us, (see page 2 of newsletter for contact details).

best regards,
Richard Farrant
