The quaint township of Corowa on the Victorian and New South Wales border was host of the 1996 TR Register concours and the Registers 20th birthday.
Like at Echuca, the Murray River was in flood which meant the concours was conducted in front of the Heritage Motor Inn, because the proposed display venue was too wet underfoot following the recent heavy rainfall. Our special overseas guest was Ken Gillanders, a TR enthusiast from America. Ken is well known world-wide for his knowledge of sidescreen TRs, so his after dinner speech was highly entertaining, and his assistance with the judging was most appreciated.
Paul Kelly won the Laurie Cousin trophy in his most immaculate red TR3A. The concours winners were announced at the presentation dinner held at the beautiful and historic All Saints Winery, known for their fortified wines in a thriving wine producing region. On the Sunday, in bright sunshine, a spectacular convoy of TRs headed down the Murray Valley Highway to Albury for a magic paddle-steamer experience aboard PS Cummberoona, on the fast flowing and flooded Murray River.
