2017 Corowa Swim-in & Military Vehicle Gathering

Postby Richard Farrant » Sun Oct 30, 2016 3:07 am

Hi,
The latest KVE News is now on our website, http://www.corowaswim-in.org. Here is a direct link to it;
http://media.wix.com/ugd/494429_853dec4 ... 44067f.pdf
All the up to date information on the event next March is in it.
The themes will be Year of the International and Year of the Carrier, but all military vehicles are encouraged to attend.
As the Carrier theme needs a bit more organising, regarding areas to display their versatilities, etc. We would like owners to make contact with us as soon as possible in order to gauge numbers, etc. Even if you are not sure currently if you can make it, please let us now. If you go to pages 9 and 10, the Carrier co-ordinator, Harvey, has some info for you and a data sheet that he would like completed if possible.
Entry form is downloadable from the website.

It should be made clear that if you intend bringing your military vehicle, you must complete an entry form and pay the fee otherwise you will not be able to take part in the activities. This is in order that you and your vehicle are covered under the KVE insurance. Better to pre-register, rather than doing it when you arrive, that way you will receive a Participants Pack.

best regards,

The total vehicles is 223 plus 6 bicycles. The total number of carriers is 14 including 2 LP1's, 1 British 3inch Mortar Carrier and 2 Strickland's. The total number of Land Rovers were 41. The total number of Jeeps was 74 plus 6 GPA's. I have gone back through the vehicle lists since 2008 and have compared the number of Land Rovers to Jeeps. You might want to spread the word that next year is Year of the Land Rover otherwise it will end up looking more like Year of the jeep if their numbers are higher. There are people already planning to bring their Jeeps so the Land Rovers may not outnumber them.
2008 - Land Rovers 23 and Jeeps 58
2009 - Land Rovers 22 and Jeeps 45
2010 - Land Rovers 24 and Jeeps 180
2011- Land Rovers 49 and Jeeps 65
2012 - Land Rovers 19 and Jeeps 66
2013 - Land Rovers 25 and Jeeps 71
2014 - Land Rovers 32 and Jeeps 84
2015 - Land Rovers 40 and Jeeps 79
2016- Land Rovers 30 and Jeeps 81
2017 - Land Rovers 41 and Jeeps 80

these numbers also include GPA's
