20/10/2014 A Word from the Prez:
To all members, the Chev Convention Committee would like to announce the following. The 2015 11th Chevrolet Convention hosted by our club will take place at Echuca on Friday 25th, Saturday 26th, Sunday 27th, of September 2015. The reason for these dates is that it does not clash with other major events (The AFL Grand final has been put forward a week into October due to world cup bookings!) with in October and September. Echuca/Moama was picked and agreed on by all members of the Convention Committee due to its town layout, accommodation, and beautiful surroundings. The town can accommodate us for all three days with the many activity’s planned. Another positive note is that the council have opened up their arms to us and have already started working with us on this event. The only down fall we could come up with was the travelling time for some but due to it being held over a weekend this would be a small sacrifice to have a successful event. The other areas considered had major faults with Echuca area having only this one! This date is planned into the middle of the Victorian school holidays so it will be a busy period for the area. It would be a good idea to book your accommodation early to ensure you are close to activity’s. The club will be setting up at the Moama Riverside holiday & tourist park just across the river and the phone number is (03)5482 3241. There are many caravan parks and motels in the area if this gets booked out and the Moama RSL has been booked for our dinner/dance night on Saturday. The Convention Committee are quite excited on planning a great event full of activity’s for all to enjoy. More information will be noted in up and coming meetings and emails.
The 10th Chev Convention has been run and what an event it was!
So stay tuned, in 2015 the 11th Chev Convention will be even bigger and better with the new format that was loved by everyone. Keep an eye on this site, details will be updated as they come to hand.
In 2013 the event was moved from Bendigo to Ballarat, and from the traditional date in September to March, the 15th – 17th 2013.
For details of past events go to the “past convention” pages.
Although the working committee has already been assembled for the 2015 Convention anyone interested in helping out can call Greg Rowe to be part of this great event.
See you there in 2015!
