New Sound For Broadford

The Motorcycling Victoria-owned Broadford race complex is to get a new sound system, if the hopes of a group of volunteers are met.

Much of the money is likely to come from the Hughie Hoare Memorial Fund's Night of Nights, in Melbourne on July 28.

The old sound system has been cobbled together from second-hand gear and, while it's done the job over the years, it's becoming unreliable.

Pre-booking is essential for the Night of Nights (the event is looking like becoming a sell-out) and the $30 tickets, which include supper, are available from the Melbourne-based PrestonMCC.com.au, Cosway Motorcycles and Redwing Motorcycles.

Last year's event helped to pay for a new medical centre at the 200-acre Broadford complex.

Hughie Hoare is probably best remembered as a long-time volunteer race commentator - anyone who attended race meetings in Victoria over a period of 30-plus years up to 2000-or-so would have heard his voice.
