After twelve years of the running of ‘The Last of the Chrome Bumpers’, Dennis Jones reveals that the event will no longer be held.
“The committee of ‘The Last of the Chrome Bumpers’ have had twelve great years in running this event and all good things must come to an end at sometime. We have always tried to keep this a family orientated day with low costs, however with the risks, liabilities, red tape and costs always increasing, the committee has decided to retire the event,” he penned in an open letter.
“The committee would like to thank all our fantastic sponsors, clubs, individuals, traders and the general public for all their support over the years, without the support of these people events of this nature are just not possible. We feel it appropriate to thank our Major Sponsors who have supported us and enabled entrants to receive some fantastic prizes and giveaways over the years. They include RACV, BOC Tyres Pakenham, Pakenham Gazette, Warragul Gazette, Meguiars and Car Megamart.”
“A special mention also to our loyal clubs who always helped on the day; Trafalgar Truck Restorers Club, Gippsland Chev Car Club, Doug & Vicki Barratt for organizing of the Vintage Caravans, Hallora & District Fire Brigade, The Stationary Engine Clubs and The Cora Lynn Football and Netball Clubs. To our loyal family and friends that always gave a hand, thank you!”
All proceeds from ‘The Last of the Chrome Bumpers’ went to the Cora Lynn Community Sporting Clubs and Recreation Reserve, which has made a big difference for this small country town in West Gippsland.
