Australian Rally Hall of Fame Dinner Canberra Feb 27

Hi all, I am hoping to organize a couple of HRA tables for the 2014 Australian Rally Hall of Fame dinner in Canberra on February 27. Tickets are $150 per head which is expensive but if the night is as good as last year’s, it will be fantastic.

The draft media release attached gives full details.

The dinner last year was financially supported by CAMS, but this year the ARHoF selection committee (Colin Trinder Chairman of the Rally Commission, Ros Tapper, Coral Taylor and myself assisted by Paul Mullan of Black Magic Media) have taken it on as a solo venture as it is separate to the ARC launch which was part of the program last year. Coral personally arranged for Ari Vatanen to come, and Ari is being used for a number of fund raising exercises to make the dinner viable, and of course he will be speaking at the dinner and making the ARHoF awards. It is a ballsy move to go it alone, and there is some possible financial risk to the organizers, so I think the dinner deserves as much support as the HRA can give it.

I have enough people for one table of 10 at the dinner, and am hoping we can fill at least one more. It will be great to see Dinta and Kate receive their awards from Ari – how good would that be? Not forgetting our other Victorian inductees, Graham Hoinville and the late Frank Kilfoyle.

If you are interested it is best for you to make your own bookings (see attachment) but please let me know if you are going. Mention that you want to be on the HRA tables when booking for the dinner.
