Last December (2014) I was approached when playing out at the Tomago Bowling & Sporting Club to see if I would be interested in being the main artist at the Family Fun Day Show n Shine.

I was told it was to raise funds for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service so naturally I said yes being that it was for a worthy cause – it would be held on Sunday the 12th April 2015 and would be a Car, Bike and Truck show.

Well we got there on the Saturday and proceeded to set up, sound check and then settle down for a quiet evening with Chris and Lynn the organisers cos people would be arriving at sparrows fart (means b4 sunrise yawn) and they did Chris was walking around at 3am.

And the stage was right near where Winne was parked cept a van snuck in bright and early on the Sunday morning with a Temporary Tattoo stall…

Man there were bikes, hot rods, cars and the odd truck – what an incredible selection and a credit to the people that built and prepared them my eyes were hanging out and so was the tongue…

Of course somehow I missed taking a picture of the chrome and polished Postie Bike but it did look incredible – anyone got a picture of it send it to me… and the cars and hot rods incredible, old or new there really was something for everybody…

Anyway a great day was had by all and a few thousand was raised as well which was what it was all about.   A big thank you to all that attended – from the car owners to the stall owners to the general public and to Gary and the Tomago Bowling and Sporting Club that opened up their premises and grounds.

The meals were fantastic and the staff were great even in the mad rush of things.   To Chris and Lynn thanks for organising and running the event,    AND a big thank you to Debbie Smith for taking the photos and putting up with me over the weekend and more so… thanks 😉
