MOTORING: Since taking over the responsibility for the Jabour Park Sports Complex, The Grafton Vintage Motor Vehicle Club Inc. has already raised its profile in the Clarence Valley and has experienced a huge increase in both its motor vehicle and member registrations.
In the short time that the club has relocated to Jabour Park they have already hosted several successful exhibitions and community projects.
Although their next project will not be held at Jabour Park, it however remains a very important part of their yearly program, of course referring to the annual Swap Meet, hosted by the club and held at the Maclean Showground.
For anyone who like to involve themselves in motoring memorabilia, either as a seller or as a buyer, this is the event for you.
The Swap Meet is scheduled for this Sunday with entry to the site available from 6am. Sites are available for those wanting to display their goods at a cost of $8.
Camping facilities are available on Saturday night, at which time catering will be provided as well as on Sunday from 6am.
Organising the event on behalf of the GVMVC Inc. is Bob Gray, who for almost a decade has been one of the main promoters behind the meet, so if you have any inquiries, Bob is the person to contact.
What Bob does not know about the meet and its history is not worth knowing. You can contact Bob on 02 6645 2950 or 0417 190 860, so please ring and take advantage of his knowledge relating to the Swap Meet.
