Nanango to show shiny chrome

YOU can't play soccer on a rough, dry pitch and it takes time and money to keep the grass in the South Burnett looking fresh.

This is why the Nanango Sports Association will host its annual Power Up Show and Shine.

"The funds from this help maintain the grounds and building,” association secretary Val Tebble said.

"They need to be in good condition because if the grounds get too hard kids can't play and there is a lot of work involved.”

Come March 24, a horde of pre-1984 cars and utes will roll into town for the Show and Shine.

Gate open at 9.30am and a gold coin donation will secure your entry.

"We're trying to make it a family day,” Mrs Tebble said.

There'll be free face-painting, a jumping castle, a colouring competition and canteen.

"Sharon's Coffee Van will be there for people who need a real coffee,” Mrs Tebble said.

The public will have the auspicious responsibility of voting for the winning vehicles.

All up there'll be awards on offer including best car of the day, best ute of the day, best paint, best interior, best engine bay and best vintage car.

A $50 prize for the lucky door draw means everyone has a chance of walking home extra- happy.

Mrs Tebble said the day wouldn't be possible without the help of the association's sponsors.

"Our major sponsors are Tarong Power Station, Meandu Mine, Shannon's Insurance and Ken Mills Mahinda Machinery,” Mrs Tebble said.

The Heritage Bank is also responsible for the refurbished shower block, canteen and a new ride-on mower.
