It’s with much delight that I announce to Rioters the inaugural Braidwood Billy Cart Derby of which Hoola Hoop is a sponsor.
The event is open to allcomers in a variety of categories and we’d love to see some entries from Canberra and the surrounding region. To encourrage this further, we at Hoola Hoop are looking for a Canberra based team to sponsor in the novelty category.
Please contact us via our website: www.hoolahoop.com.au
We would like to support a cart that visually represents what we are about, which is 50’s and 60’s fashion, style and design. We can obviously supply clothing in this style to the team from our shop.
We would also like the sponsored to represent a not for profit community group or charity; ideally the team would be representitives of such an organisation. We are particularly interested in groups representing youth and the arts, fashion or music.
There has been some interesting discussion on The RiotACT of late in regard to Braidwood and it’s progress as a place of commerce and tourism – http://the-riotact.com/?p=17981&cpage=1#comments
The discussion has brought forward some very valuable suggestions but there has been a little negativity, albeit justified to some extent.
All of that aside; this is just the kind of event that Braidwood needs in order to attract attention to this unique little town that has so much to offer visitors. This will be a thouroughly entertaining and quirky event for all ages and well worth visiting Braidwood for!
Why not make a weekend of it and stay overnight. If an overnight stay interests you, contact us through the website as we can organise a dinner on the saturday night at The Old Cheese Factory at nearby Reidsdale, Simply drop us a line and indicate that you’d be interested in a “Classic Diner” experience on the evening of the Billy Cart Derby! If the interest is there, we can organise it!
It would be particularly great to get classic car clubs involved in this event. What about entries that visually represent particular makes or models? It would be great to see some mid-century classics or even hot rods in town on the day of the event.
Please forward this post to any classic car enthusiasts that you might know!
The Braidwood Lions club have done Braidwood proud by coming up with this event, which has been made possible by extremely generous support from The Braidwood Community Bank and to a smaller extent other corporate sponsors including Hoola Hoop.
Braidwood businesses are really getting behind this event and we personally would like to extend an invitation to people from Canberra and around the region to come out and have some fun!!!
