From Jason Paroz

Hi Laurie,

Thanks for your call. Attached is information about the weekend.  

This will be our 4th year for this event. This years event will be one of the biggest to date as  we have attracted boats as far away as Victoria and Rockhampton. 

To ensure we have a  productive time this year we be will running a slightly different format from previous years with the addition of a poker run around the Somerset dam. 

The activity rules and game play will communicated on the day with driver briefing at 10.30am and kick off by 11am.  This will be something that the  whole family can participate in and to give that old girl a run as well. 

In addition to this if you are keen for weekend away a few of use are camping at Somerset village camp grounds from the Friday the 25th. if camping is not your thing there are holiday rentals within the village. Also the local shop “The Dam Shed “ is up and running this year with fuel , gas, Ice and café if needed. 

All are welcome to join us. 

 We look forward in seeing there
