Fraser Coast Show May 2019


Turnabout 17th March 2019 

 

 

Photos taken at the 50th Anniversary celebrations of the Fraser Coast Historic Vehicle Club at St Helen’s State School, Maryborough, Saturday 6th October. A display, for public viewing, of historic and classic cars from our Club and the Maryborough District Antique Motor Club, filled the car park in front of the school. Club members and our guests were treated to morning tea and then a catered lunch in the school auditorium. Six of our Life Members were in attendance, two travelling from Adelaide and Canberra to be there. Mr Ted Sorensen, MP, our Club Patron, was also in attendance. President David Trigg welcomed members and guests to our celebrations and invited Mr Sorensen to say a few words. David then asked our Life Members to reminisce on their years in the Club. Several other invited guests spoke of their association with our Club over the years. Club members have to be proud of all their efforts in ensuring the success of this occasion as months of planning and organisation culminated in the great day for all.

 Awards Presentation and Christmas in July

On 30th July 2017 the Fraser Coast Historic Vehicle Club held its annual Awards Presentation
and Christmas in July lunch at the home of members on the banks of the Mary River.
A wonderful setting and a great day with a spit roast lunch which we all enjoyed.

Burrum Coal Festival

The Burrum Coal Festival is celebrated on the third weekend in July and for the last couple of years the Fraser Coast Historic Vehicle Club has been invited to partake in the festivities.  The discovery of coal in the towns of Howard and Torbanlea in 1863, the lives lost and hardships endured are all remembered during this festival.

 

Fraser Coast Wildlife Sanctuary
On Friday 30 June 2017, the FCHVC, along with the Maryborough Club, visited the Fraser Coast Wildlife Sanctuary where we welcomed members of the Veteran Classic Car Club (Qld) on their visit to Maryborough. There were approximately 55 veteran cars on display – what a wonderful sight to see so many unique cars in one place.

Jacks Place Nikenbah
On 25 June 2017 members of the Fraser Coast Historic Vehicle Club visited “Jack’s Place” at Nikenbah where we were treated to an amazing display of memorabilia, ranging from trucks, cars and even a replica of the Ned Kelly Glenrowan Pub. “Jack” is an avid collector and much of his treasures are still in their original condition. 

Fraser Coast Show

The Fraser Coast Historic Vehicle Club once again put on a good display of our cars at the 2017 Fraser Coast Show.  Along with the Maryborough Antique Car Club we were allocated a prominent position in front of the grandstand, near the main ring.

125th anniversary celebrations at the Biggenden

Approximately 20 members of the Fraser Coast Historic Vehicle Club made the early start, by assembling at the Rose Gardens, Maryborough, to travel to Biggenden to attend the 125th anniversary celebrations at the Biggenden

State School.  One of our members was actually a pupil at that school in 1950.  Perfect weather and a wonderful event organised by the Biggenden community made for a great occasion.
The school and its surrounds were well presented and all the stall holders and food vendors added colour to the occasion.  If only for a few hours, we were privileged to be a part of such an historic event and witness the wonderful community spirit that exists in that small Queensland town.

Morning tea and registration- Turnabout lunch at Torbanlea
 
Fraser Coast Historic Vehicle Club hosted the Bundaberg Vintage Vehicle Club to the 2017 Turnabout Rally.
This is an event that takes place each year with the two clubs taking turns to host the event (hence the name of
Turnabout).  Registration and morning tea was at Andrew Petrie Park, Royale Street, Maryborough West.  Then followed a rally which headed back through Maryborough, on to River Heads, then along the Charlton Esplanade and out to Torbanlea
for lunch.  It was one of our biggest rallies – with over 90 participants and 63 vehicles taking part.
