Hi All, On behalf of the Committee and members of the HCVAQ we would like to thank all members and supporters of our club for yet another successful Annual Show.
As you would probably know, this past weekend show, at the Gatton Showgrounds, our 23rd, again attracted a full showground of trucks, tractors, buses,
vintage cars, stationary engines and commercial vehicles of all denominations. It wouldn't have mattered what your interest was, it was there to be seen.
Although it rained mid-week in Gatton, we could not have asked for better weather as the grounds were at their greenest best and they dried out perfectly
for our big week-end. Again this year we had to compete with many other big events that were also on, including Riverfire, All British Day,
Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers and the Queensland Auto Museum auction at Hampton, west of Toowoomba. The mind boggles as to how big our show could be if we ever had the the weekend to ourselves.
There are so many people to thank and while I know it's dangerous, as you risk of accidently forgetting someone, we'd like to again thank the
Lockyer Valley Reginal Council for their ongoing support, the many local Gatton businesses who donated goods to our club for our raffles,
the many trade stands that add to the atmosphere of the show, the other Car and Truck clubs who made the effort to come and display their
pride and joy, the trucks that made their journeys from interstate and last but not least, the many spectators who came through the gates to view the trucks,
tractors etc meeting up with friends of long standing while watching the parades. Special mention should also go to the Lowood Scout Group who at very short
notice, came on board to feed our public. If we have forgotton anyone, our apologies, as it is completely unintentional. We hope to see you all next year.
Thank you, from the Committee and Members of the HCVAQ.
