TRACKWATCH JUNE 2019 7 The first show of this type to be held on the Mornington Peninsular, saw a strong showing of exhibitors from the recreational sector which included the fishing, boat- ing, caravan and camper industry as well as the 4x4 and camping industries. It was held at the Mornington Racecourse which proved to be a great location. Held over 3 days from 14th to 17th March, Four Wheel Drive Victoria set up the marquee and display at the show and invited the local 4WD clubs to get involved to promote their clubs and attract new members. An enthusiastic bunch of members from both the Peninsular 4WD Club and Port Phillip 4WD Club attended the stand to talk to visitors about the various activities of their clubs. The Toyota 4WD Club also had a stand next to ours so the four wheel drive club community had a great presence at the show. We also had some staff from DELWP and Parks Victoria attend as well as the team from Four Wheel Drive Victoria who also attended over the weekend, supporting the clubs and talking to visitors. The display was well received with many people visiting the stand and discussing club membership etc. with the stand full of people at numerous times over the weekend. All clubs reported new members joining from the show. The next regional shows are Mildura 28 – 30 June and Shepparton 30th August – 1st September and you can check out the details online at The Great Outdoors & 4x4 Expo at Mornington Trackwatch Now Available As Flipbook Your Trackwatch magazine is now avail- able in a new Flipbook format and is on our website located on the News Tab where you can view it as a Flipbook on any device.
