The Capital Region Muscular Dystrophy charity are holding their Muscle Up car show in March. They are hoping to make it a great day with something for everyone. If they could get a few corvettes there it would be a great addition.
I’ve enclosed a leaflet which has a brief description of the event and our organisation.

The day is called the Muscle Up Charity Car and Bike Show as a reference to the disease our charity works to overcome: muscular dystrophy. This disease has many forms but all cause muscle wasting and in its most severe forms such as Duchennes, it severely impacts and shortens the life of young children. There is no cure for muscular dystrophy. Our work aims to improve the everyday lives of people living with muscular dystrophy.
Capital Region Muscular Dystrophy is a voluntary organisation and all proceeds from this event will go towards their work. This includes provision of essential medical equipment to local families, development of support services in Canberra, school and weekend sports programs for kids with severe mobility limitations and respite opportunities. A good result from the car show is important to this work and we’d be very thankful for your support to help make this happen.
In short the event is set for 10am to 3pm on Saturday, 24 March at the Belconnen Bowling Club, Beetaloo st Hawker. Public entry will be by gold coin donation.
Entrants can/should arrive from 9am and entry will be by donation (we’d suggest $10 which will be tax deductible). There will be awards for the top six as chosen by sponsors which include Shannons and Thrifty so they should be pretty good. Enquiries can be directed to me (and pre registrations for the day would be welcome).
There will be a bbq, coffee and drinks available. We’ll hold a 50/50 raffle on the day as well: 50% per cent of the kitty goes to the winner and 50% to the charity. We also have security arranged for the event by one of our regular supporters, Elite Security.
Rob Oakley from Capital Region MD (0429 382 502) would be happy to speak to anyone in the club that would be interested in joining them on the day or just has a question about the day.
