Today is an exciting day!! The 2009 Bash route has been announced …. and we’re off to Broken Hill, via Alice Springs. The Variety 2009 Bennelong to Broken Hill Bash will depart on 16 August 2009 from the forecourt of the world-famous Sydney Opera house. This was the starting point for the original Bash organised by Dick Smith in 1985 and 25 years later 100+ Bash cars will head out of this iconic location on their way through Parkes (NSW), Hay (NSW), Berri (SA), Woomera (SA), Coober Pedy (SA), Alice Springs (NT), Hawker (SA) and finally Broken Hill (NSW).
And the most exciting part is that this year all the State Variety Bashes will converge in Alice Springs for a massive party for 2000 people!!! Plus we will get to see the famous Henley on Todd Regatta http://www.henleyontodd.com.au/

Now the fundraising begins in earnest. The Bees are joining forces with my bro-in-law’s car (98) and between us we need to raise $17,000 to get into the Bash. All trip costs including accommodation, fuel, food and car running costs are additional to that and are not taken from the funds we raise. All funds raised go to Variety NSW – so if you want to donate to this fantastic cause contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
Bring on 2009!!!
