Thanks Richard for all your hard work in getting this completed. We were waiting on some information regarding the secondary location.
After the showgrounds and racecourse in March 2012 we have negotiated with the Trust to use these facilities again. Please read the following information and if you would like to camp at the showgrounds we need you to contact Neville Smith ASAP.

IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR PARTICIPANTS
For those of you coming to Corowa with armour, vehicles and transporters, we have camping available at Corowa Showground.
KVE have definitely secured camping from Thursday 14th to Sunday 17th March, however we have been given approval by the Trust that manage these facilities that if needed, we can book from Monday 11th to Monday 18th March.
The reason for this is that KVE will be charged $200 per day. As can be seen,
to make it viable we need to know straight away as to how many of you are
interested in using the site from Monday or anytime onwards.
PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THE FOLLOWING
 The camping fee per person, per day will be $10 each.
 There are showers and toilets on site.
 You will have to make sure you remove your own rubbish.
 You will have to abide by any rules and regulations set by the Trust.
 The Rotary Club may be able to organise meals on a couple of days during the week, subject to prior demand.
 No dogs are permitted at this facility, see advertisement in this newsletter for local kennels.
 Double the amount of undercover area is now available for the swapmeet.
Please contact Neville as soon as possible:
Neville Smith (KVE Vice President) on 0429 350 569
kveinc@optusnet.com.au
Please let Neville know what days you expect to be at the Showground and how many persons coming with your entry.
As you can see, the only way to plan this is to know how many people would like to use the site and when they will arrive.
Prompt responses to using the facilities will give us a good estimate of how viable it would be to hire the site from Monday onwards, or whether to do it from Thursday onwards.
Bindaree Motel and Caravan Park are also able to offer reasonably priced camping.
KVE is a volunteer group and many of our Committee members have been working hard in the last few months to make this next event a good one, but one thing is lacking, that is knowing how many partici-pants and vehicles are going to enter and what their needs are, so please help us to help you.
The Showground was first used last year for Saturday’s activities, and the overwhelming
response to the venue was excellent, so please give it a go.

Default Restoration articles wanted for next newsletter

A message to all past, present and future participants of the Annual Corowa Swim-In & Military Vehicle Gathering. The next edition of KVE News, the newsletter dedicated to the Swim-In, is scheduled to come out in January with all the up to date information for the 2013 event in March. As Editor of KVE News, I am looking for articles on your restorations along with photos.
If you have any interesting military vehicle restoration stories to tell, please send them to me as soon as possible. We will also be preparing a Special Edition of KVE News in printed form which will be in the pre-registered participants packs when you arrive at Corowa.
We have recently received confirmation of another successful application of a Tourism Event grant from the Corowa Shire Council which will help cover some of our costs of running the event as well as being able to give some promotional items to pre-registered participants. These will include a 2013 Year of the Trailed Equipment and Armoured Vehicle hat, a special bumper sticker and a pen, along with a few other items.
A good reason to get your entry forms in now to ensure you do not miss out. The entry form and recent KVE News can be downloaded from the website which is www.corowaswim-in.org
Look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards, Richard Farrant

Default Corowa 2013

Anyone hoping for the Swim-in to coincide with the Day on the Green festival at All Saints again will be sadly disappointed.
Paul Kelly & Neill Finn will playing at All Saints but the date is the 2nd March.

Default Attention - to MV clubs in Australia

Hi all,
Just sending this on behalf of Jan, the KVE Secretary:

Encouraging new membership
There are people throughout Australia who are interested in finding a club nearby to join. There are a number of people who attend our Swim-in at Corowa who don’t belong to any clubs and they sometimes contact KVE to obtain an entry form or want to speak to someone who can assist them with a vehicle restoration. In our next KVE newsletter we would like to hear from Club committees who may like to promote their organisation to fellow collectors. If you are interested please send Jan, our Secretary details of your club including contacts so we can start and put together a list of clubs.

The contact email address is kveinc@optusnet.com.au

Thanks for the last post Richard. Being out in the country area for a week made it difficult to post messages on forums.

I recently sent off 2 Membership Applications to people wanting to join the AMVCS and with changes of Committees in clubs I would like to make sure I have the best possible contact for people who may ask me about joining a club.

We will post club information in our next KVE News which we would like to get out next week. We are also doing a Special Edition for Corowa 2013 and this may encourage people to join your club.

There has also been interest from Temora in having military vehicles present at their 2013 Airshows Downunder which will be on the first weekend in November.
