Cruzers Mountains to the Sea hot rod run 2018

Manning Valley Cruzers’ annual rod run, Mountains to the Sea, went off without a hitch.

Now in its 16th year, the event included a show’n’shine on the riverbank at Taree, a dinner dance presentation at Smugglers Cove holiday park in Forster and barefoot bowls at Black Head Bowling Club.

Club president Peter Green said all involved had a great weekend.

“The weather stayed fine and everyone had a good time,” Peter said.

“We had a great crowd down at the riverbank.”

The event attracted 105 entrants from across NSW including the Central Coast, Coffs Harbour and Woolongong. 

“That was 10 up on last year which was really good,” Peter said.

“Our longest distance driver came from Narrabri.”

Trophies were handed out at the dinner dance which identified the best hot rods and ‘mayor’s choice’, chosen by MidCoast Council mayor David West. 

The event also raised $5000 for the Kundle Moto Rural Fire Service through a raffle and donations.
