The Barry Sheene Festival of Speed

Report on Festival of Speed Info Day at Eastern Creek (Saturday 24th April 2018).

Due to several mix ups, not our fault, we were only allowed two members to attend the day,

Crowds were fairly small this year & we could only man the the stall for 5 hours, it was an ok day, several men chatted re Prostate Cancer Awareness, one young fellow very interested.

One Man said, “Hey, you gave one of these last year” I replied, “well did you go and get your PSA checked?” “No” was the reply, I then told him he will be getting the brochure each year till he gets the check.

We handed out about 80 brochures during the time there.

I’d like to thank the members who offered to come but we couldn’t get passes for, the members who rang to apologise that they couldn’t make it & thank you to Alan Howard who was with me during the day

It is very early days yet, but further down the track, I hope to have news re next years event.
