This year’s annual Shannons Wheels display, held on behalf of the Council of ACT Motor Clubs, was held on 3 March 2019 at the Queanbeyan Showground to raise funds for local charities, and to show off the prized possessions held by Canberra and Districts' 65 various car and bike clubs. It was a hot and sunny day and, unfortunately, there was very little shade available for the dozen or so Canberra Chapter members that turned out on the day.
Our cars were able to be displayed in a good sized grassy area that was a little bit away from the hustle and bustle of the main display area, mainly because a large number of smaller clubs had failed to attend on the day. This left us out on the edge of the oval with not a lot around us. However, we were all pleasantly surprised with the large number of visitors who wandered over to ask about and admire the good range of vehicles our members were able to display.
The heat and the unrelenting sunshine sent us all home a little earlier than the organisers would have liked, but I think we all needed to be rehydrated – I know I certainly did. Many thanks to our members that bought their cars out on the day.
