Entries are still available for a fun-filled touring road event that also makes a serious contribution to the Snowy Mountains and Sapphire Coast economies.
Cooma Car Club's bi-annual Surf To Summit run will be held over the weekend of May 1-2.
Entry is open to 'petrol heads' who own cars that are 30-years-old or more, or replicas. Previous runs have included a huge range from Austin 7s through to Model A Fords, GT Falcons and Valiant Chargers and more.
The event is non-competitive and all NSW road rules must be obeyed with club members also driving the tour to ensure no-one gets lost.
"We start Saturday morning's run with a pre-event briefing at the club," says CCC president, Rogan Corbett.
"We have marshals along the course and a route map for every entrant, so everyone should arrive at our destinations safe and on time. There are also course vehicles running after the field just in case anyone has any mechanical issues."
First stop on Saturday morning is the small town of Candelo for a pit-stop at Candelo Oval to enjoy morning tea provided by Candelo Public School.
From there, it's across Myrtle Mountain to Wyndham, Nethercote and Eden before lunch at Oaklands Barn Café at Pambula. After lunch, everyone is free to explore their favourite part of the Sapphire Coast before returning to Cooma for dinner and drinks.
"We'll have some - shall we say 'interesting' - awards at the presentation and it is always a great night," Rogan says adding they allow entrants a sleep-in with a later start on Sunday.
Day Two takes entrants out to Nimmitabel, then through to Ando on the Snowy River Way, before everyone stops for morning tea at the Dalgety Showground.
From Dalgety, the route takes everyone to Jindabyne. Lunch is on the grass near the river, provided by well-known Cooma restaurateur and caterer, Tony Nassar.
Cost for the event is $170 for the driver, and $90 for the passenger ($260 per couple), covering entry, morning tea and lunch on both days, as well as the official dinner.
This is a fully covid-safe event and entry forms are on the club's website or inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org or for more info you can call club president Rogan Corbett on 0412 722 505.
