    Held at Valla Park Resort near Nambucca Heads,NSW.Started in 1977 and
    this was the 35th running of this event.We have only missed one!!!
    Each year gets better with the host club,The Dragens,from Sydney alway coming up with new ideas.

    This year the theme was "Carnivale" with a special parade through the Park with floats and dressing up.

    The weather was not kind to us this year and probably the coldest and wettest that we have had.At least it was fine for Saturday morning and the car show in town.we felt sorry for the campers,especially those in tents who had to endure torrential downpours at times.

    Looked like good numbers but not a record.Probably close to 400 cars.
    Plenty of new cars this year also.

    The great thing about Valla is the cruisin.It is non stop all weekend.With the network of roads through the cabins and camping sites.

    It has started raining at Bathurst so should be some fun now.
    Now photos 1078 and 1079 are the result of the boys going up to Valla tavern for "Secret Mens Business".This is basically going to the pub and being served by barmaids with practically no clothing!!!Sorry no photos as younguns may be viewing.

    These last pics are the cars assembling in the centre of Nambucca Heads for the car show.This has been happening for 35 years and there is great support from the businesses and towns people for the run.
