2014 Bargara Beach Campout

October 3rd-6th 2014

What is going to happen for the 2014 Bargara Beach Campout?
This year, our event coincides with the October long weekend so we have tried to have a relaxed but packed agenda for our event. We are still finalising the exact details however to give you all a taste of what is in store, here is a brief snapshot of what is on offer at our event:-

Registration, free time for sunset/night cruise and official "Meet n Greet BBQ"
Breakfast, Garage Crawl (includes man caves and cars in the build) and ASRF DC meeting at our new clubhouse with catered dinner at Bargara Saturday night including live entertainment provided by Crossfire.
This years theme for this year is the letter "B". Come to the Saturday night dinner dressed or associated with the letter B! (I'll leave this to your imagination!).
Breakfast, Public Car Show and Rocker Cover challenge followed by free time Sunday afternoon to enjoy the lifestyle Bargara gas to offer. Sunday evening will conclude with a unique  "Movies at the Beach".
Continental breakfast, check everything, pack up and depart.

Rum City Rocker Cover Racing Challenge
Our Rocker Cover Racing Challenge last year was organised on pretty short notice. However,  we are giving plenty of notice to those who wish to explore their creativity and competitive streak for this years campout.
The challenge will be held during our car show on Sunday 5th October 2014.
Here are some of the rules for the Rum City Rocker Cover Racing Challenge are:-
