Looks like the Timber and Working with Wood Show is moving again, not only to a new home, but a new date.
It is now on in September, 11th to the 13th at the Caulfield Racetrack. Door prices are still $16, but there is free parking. Doesn’t clash with the AFL Grand Final, which is in October this year, and it finally manages to avoid the MotoGP at Phillip Island, which was normally the same weekend.
Of course, it does make it the same weekend as the Sandown 500, which is, to my mind, a similar demographic – perhaps with some age separation? For some of us, that makes it a real choice: the one V8 Supercars race that is held locally in the year, or the annual wood show? With an attendance in the vicinity of 200,000 over the weekend at the Sandown 500, that won’t impact too badly on Working with Wood Show numbers would it?
