The Sydney Truckies’ Reunion is on again with a dinner at the Campbelltown Catholic Club on October 15.

It will mark 37 years ago when a group of truckies came to the realisation that they would only get together as a group at their fellow truckies’ funerals.

So they decided to change that by coming together for happier times at a reunion every year.

The first reunion, organised by Ron Bush and Kevin Love, was held at the Homebush Markets Club NSW where it stayed for many years.

Then Janet and Kevin Daws took over for several years moving it to the Regent’s Park Bowling Club NSW.

Ron Bush and his daughter Rhonda once again organised the event, moving it to Campbelltown Catholic Club NSW where it is still held today.

Now a new group of trucking families are keeping this very important part of trucking history alive.

Chris and Adam Andrews, Marie and Sunny Warby plus those hard working ladies from the Putty Road Truck Drivers Memorial are now all on board determined to continue the popular annual reunion.

The dinner starts at 6pm and, under new management, there will be a three course dinner priced at $50 per person (which includes two drink vouchers per person of beer, wine, juice or soft drink). Tea and coffee is available all night at no charge.

For 2017 it has been suggested that, due to the age of some of the transport industry veterans, the reunion will be moved to a lunch event.

For further information on the October 15 Sydney Truckies’ Reunion Dinner phone 0404 495 456 or 0414 631 206.
