Dorrigo’s first Brian Baff Memorial Bike and Car Show and Shine draws the crowds

It’s a beauty at the Brian Baff Memorial show.


THE inaugural Brian Baff Memorial Bike and Car Show and Shine, was held on Saturday July 10 in conjunction with the Made in Dorrigo Markets.

“A healthy roll-up of exotic motorcycles, cars and trucks was viewed by many on a crisp, clear Dorrigo day,” event organiser Peter Robson told News Of The Area.

“It was a fantastic tribute to ‘Baffy’, one of Dorrigo’s local legends.

“Brian Baff, ‘Baffy’ was a local born and bred mechanic, lived in Dorrigo all his life, sold, serviced and repaired all sorts of machinery.

“He was a great help to many and a genuine community contributor,” said Peter.

Run by the region’s Chamber of Commerce, car and bike enthusiasts were invited to show anything two, three or four wheeled.

“We invited anyone to bring along their pride and joy that they are in love with for visitors to also fall in love with.

“Entries ranged from 1970s kids mini-bikes to Jack and Rob Keough’s Mack Truck.

“We put it out to the visitors on the day to vote for their favourites in three classes.

“By donating a gold coin into the teacup attached to each vehicle, people voted with their dollars.”

The winners were:

People’s Choice car: Brad Keough’s Chevy Ute.

People’s Choice bike: Cooper Young’s Minibike Chopper.

People’s Choice Truck or Tractor: Jack Keough’s Mack Truck.

“Because our event was held alongside the Made in Dorrigo Markets we had a lot of visitors up here, looking and voting and I think they liked the fact that the vehicles were treasures, not all perfectly ‘done up’,” said Peter.

“A big thank you goes to sponsors who provided prize money, the Heritage Hotel Motel Dorrigo, Elders Dorrigo, Peter Mortimore Gallery and Dorrigo Mountain Holiday Park.”

Proceeds from entry and voting go back into Dorrigo Chamber of Commerce funds.
