Corowa 2014 - Year of the WW1 & Year of the Ford

Recommended Posts

Hi all

We will be giving you some updates on the 2014 event over the next few weeks.We had out AGM in August and the Committee is now:

President - Scott Rough

Vice President - Harvey Black

Treasurer - Ben Hemmings

Secretary & Public Relations Officer- Jan Thompson

Committee- Richard Farrant, Robert Pearce & Neville Smith


Official Trips Planned:

Wednesday: Trip to Mulwala area

Thursday: Visit to the Corowa Primary School & proposed trip to Puckapunyal

Friday: Trip to Howlong area


Guest speaker: on Friday evening Keith Webb and we will advise you shortly of the venue.


Parade: We will have an official parade on Saturday morning leaving from Bangerang Park promptly at 9am. We advise participants to commence lining up from 7:30am. We successfully applied to the Corowa RSL for a grant and we will be able to have the streets of Corowa closed off for the parade.


Showgrounds: this year we will have the Showgrounds available from Thursday to Sunday for people with Swap Meet sites only. Last year the final number of participants who used the Showgrounds indicated that this is not a preferred camping area so in 2014 participants who want to camp should be contacting Ball Park Caravan Park (who now have more powered sites), Bindaree Motel and Caravan Park and Rivergum Resort who will reduce their charges for camping and unit accommodation for our participants.


Publicity: Mark Fletcher, known as 'Fletch' from the Channel 44 show 'ClassicRestos' will be with us again from Wednesday to Friday. He will be filming on Thursday and we will be looking for people to interview so we get a cross section of vehicles.


Swap Meet: Sites for the Swap Meet will be available from Thursday and at this stage Jan McKenna from the Show Society will be organising the sites. There will be official paperwork available shortly and people will have the choice of undercover and outdoor sites. (In the interim please forward me a message if you are planning to have a Swap Meet Site.)


Saturday evening: We have decided to change out plan for Saturday evening. From 8pm until approximately 9pm we will have presentations and an opportunity for people planning future events to talk to the other participants. This will include a talk by the Corowa RSL on their plans for 2015.


Sunday: There will be an AGM and General Meeting held on Sunday morning. KVE members and participants of the event are welcome to attend.


Sunday evening dinner: The final activity of the event will be a dinner at the Corowa RSL. As they are a major sponsor we hope those who are still in town come along.

Just a reminder to get your entry forms in for 2014.


We were successful once again with a Tourism Grant from the Corowa Shire. We have sent in our order for Caps and stubby holders along with stickers which will be advertising the 2015 event. For an Entry fee of $15 you will receive all the promotional items including a Plaque. (Where do you get such value for money?).


Look at our updated website: www.corowaswim-in.org fort he latest newsletter only released last week. There is also an Entry form on there plus a form to complete if you are going to have a swap meet site. For those requiring a site you must book in ASAP especially if requiring one undercover.


Richard emailed out the newsletters this time so if you didn't receive one please send an email to kveinc@optusnet.com.au

Hi all,

Time is flying by and the 2014 Corowa Swim-In is fast approaching. The closing date for pre-registered entries is the 28th February. This ensures we receive them in good time before leaving for Corowa, so please try and get them in well before this closing date.

The January issue of KVE News was emailed out last week to all those on the database, followed up with Entry form and Swap Meet booking form. It appears that there may be some people who might not have received the newsletter with all the up to date information. It may have got in to your spam folder for some reason. To anyone who has not received it and for those that would also like to read it, it is on our website, please click on this link:



To download the entry form, please use this link:



and for the Swap Meet stall booking, please use this link:



We look forward to receiving your entries and meeting you at Corowa.

The KVE Committee

It is great to see sometimes up to 8 entries each day either by email or in the post. You have up until the 28th February to get your entries in.

Remember to come along to Keith Webb's talk at the Football Club which is opposite Ball Park Caravan Park on Friday 14th March. The Footy Club will be selling food and drinks from approx. 5pm so there are no excuses for people not to have a feed before listening to the parade briefing at 7:30pm and following this will be Keith's talk. Lets support the local Footy Club.
