RIVER ROD RUNNERS DEDICATE EVENT TO LONG TIME FRIEND THIS SUNDAY AT MANNUM

Wednesday, March 6, 2019

Mannum’s annual riverside Hot Rod day will attract customs, classics
and rods from across the State and Victoria this Sunday at Mary Ann
Reserve.
This year’s event is dedicated to long-time friend and supporter, Ian
‘Stik’ Cameron who attended the event for the past 30 years bringing
his prestigious T Bucket from Coberg in Victoria and always helping
out on the day.
“We have named the 2019 event ‘Camo’s Run’ after our good friend
Stik’ who unfortunatey passed away last year, said Hot Rod day Coordinator,
Leon Warhurst.’
‘A special award has been created in honour of Stik, the ‘Camo
Award’, with special Camo criteria as the car should be driven not
hidden in his words, not a trailer queen or a trophy hunter”.
‘We usually attract around 200 entries with vehicles dating back to
the early 1900’s”.
The Silverados and DJ Jess are back with rock n roll music at its best
and dancing shoes are a must as hot rods and rock n roll are certainly
best friends at this event with the riverside dance floor for all to
enjoy.
“Mannum is the birthplace of the first steam car in Australia with a
differential back in 1898 and I am sure inventor David Shearer would
be impressed as to the passion these hot rodder’s bring with their
amazing vehicles”, said Mid Murry Council Mayor Dave Burgess.
“The Mannum Hot Rod Day committee should be applauded for the
economic impact they bring to the town and region through this
annual event”.
‘Camo’s Run’ will include the PS Marion offering one hour short
cruises throughout the day, food stalls, live entertainment chrome
and colour of all shapes and sizes.
Event proceeds assist the Mannum Hospital Auxiliary with entry only
$2.00 and commences at 10.00 am at the magnificent Mary Ann
Reserve at Mannum on Sunday.
The weather forecast looks great and parking is available at the
Mannum Football Oval with a gold coin donation shuttle bus to the
event.
