Reminisce with old mates in Rosewood

LONGING for the chance to catch up with your mates?

The Transport People United Gearbox Driver Reunion Dinner Dance will give truck drivers, their families and others in the transport industry the chance to get together and reminisce about the good old days from the 60s, 70s and 80s.

TPU secretary Kay Paul said the inaugural event would be held every two years.

The event starts early at the Rosewood Showgrounds and Kay will be taking the microphone around and do miles around the table.

It will be a chance for drivers to introduce themselves and tell a few tales of life on the road.

"I think it's going to be a really good night," she said.

"It will be good for the younger guys to come because I'll tell you what, you can learn a lot from those old fellas."

A three course meal will be served while Ferny Hills entertainer Kevin Smith will have you dancing the night away.

He can perform anything from country, old rock and roll, dance numbers like the foxtrot and waltz and the 50s to now - as long as it's not that "head banging" stuff.

There will be a licensed bar and special guests on the night will be The Ferret and Keith Jamieson.

Camping is available at the showgrounds overnight.
