Convoy 2017 - that’s a wrap!
Camp Quality Convoy Victoria 2017 kicked-off before sunrise on the April 30th, with a procession of trucks making their way into the Avalon Airport.
In the morning the truckers tucked into a delicious breakfast, and held their breath at the excitement of the Lead Truck bidding (an initiatve where entrants raised a minimum of $1,000, and bid against each other to lead the convoy).
When the dust settled, Daniel Crawford of Hallam Truck Centre came out on top! He won the honour of leading the convoy of trucks and motorbikes on the 50 kilometer drive to Tabcorp Park in Melton. The 300 polished and shining trucks made for an incredible spectacle stretching out into the distance. Locals came out to watch the procession go by and take in the display of motoring glory.
A Family Fun Day at Tabcorp Park was held after the convoy, which was exceptionally well supported by the truckers and bikers (and their families), as well as many Melton locals. It was incredible to see! The day was full of family fun, good food, impressive vehicles (both bikes and trucks) and great people.
The Show and Shine at the Family Fun Day was a crowd favourite, with all the drivers for taking the time to clean and polish their rigs – they were a truly impressive sight! Rod Patterson took out the People’s Choice for the event.
Camp Quality thanks everyone involved in making the event a reality, and for helping us to raise $45,000! That's enough to deliver one Middle Camp this year so that kids can take an essential break from the stress and intensity of cancer.
