Newcastle variety bash coming to town

Condobolin will once again see a massive influx of brightly coloured cars this weekend with the 20th anniversary of the Newcastle Variety Charity Bash set to roll into town on Sunday evening.
The participants will take part in a New Zealand style H?ngi dinner at the Royal Hotel and breakfast at Condobolin Public School before continuing on to various other towns between Balranald, Echuca and Gilgandra throughout the week.
Organiser of the event, Victor Shields said the bash required entrants to raise over $4000 per vehicle in support of Variety Children’s Charity prior to entering the event.
“All of that money then goes to buying different equipment to help children who are suffering from health, educational or economic disadvantages,” he said.
“We only buy equipment so we know our money goes where it’s supposed to go.”
Victor said all the participants would arrive in old style, brightly coloured cars though the exact designs were usually kept a secret until the day of the rally.
“People really use their imagination with how they paint their vehicles,” he said.
“We know for sure we have more than 50 pre-1974 Bash cars and teams will be dressed and ready to impress in Where’s Wally stripes, gaudy orange overalls, Hawaiian shirts, bikie leathers and cops uniforms, just to name a few.”
