The Lions Club of Gerringong’s annual Motor Fest car show event is set for Saturday the 16th of February, 2019 and looks like a great opportunity for an early 2019 run.

Held by the Lions Club of Gerringong, the Gerringong Motor Fest will invite collectable, performance and exotic vehicles to Michael Cronin Oval in Gerringong to put on a car show raising money for a cancer research project. Set early in the year, the event is a good opportunity to enjoy a run and catch up after the holiday break. It’s also held on the same day as Gerringong’s monthly market, which is fun to explore and makes for a good break from the cars (if you would ever need such a thing.)

Entry for participating vehicles is $5 to cover driver and passenger, with entry for all other attendees set at a very reasonable $5. The Lions Club of Gerringong is a not for profit organisation and all funds raised from the event will be provided to a to-be-determined cancer research project.

We’ve thoroughly enjoyed our previous visits to Gerringong and look forward to a good event in 2019. We will be meeting at Loftus oval at 7:30AM on Saturday the 16th of February for the run to Michael Cronin Oval. Please do reach out if you would like to take part.

Read on for a few details from the Gerringong Lions Club.

16th February, 2019, Michael Cronin Oval

This year again our intention is to invite along the specifically collectable, performance and exotic vehicles both old and new. Prizes will be provided to vehicles in each category. Depending on the initial interest from car clubs and car groups we may this year for the first time make a theme of the event, I will wait until I hear back from clubs who are planning to support the event before deciding. In any case every vehicle club and vehicle type will be welcome.

We have allocated lots of room around each vehicle to ensure those participating can feel safe in knowing that there vehicle is safe whilst parked. Entry for participating vehicles for driver and passenger is only $5 each to the vehicle participant/club member. A small charge of $5 will apply for all other people including the general public. Any additional donations would be most welcome for a very important cause.

For your club members interest this event will be held on what is Gerringong’s monthly market day in the centre of town (about 300 metres away) so will provide an excellent opportunity for members and partners to enjoy the hospitality of this wonderful seaside township.

This year like previous years we anticipate a healthy interest in this forthcoming event, hence the advice to you so early. We would appreciate it if you would advertise this event within your club and your reply by 23rd November 2018 or sooner to advise us if you would like to be formally invited to participate (likely vehicle numbers would assist us greatly).

Many thanks to you and your motoring enthusiast members.

Keith Watson,
Lions Club of Gerringong
