Canberra Show Parking
Many Rotarians and friends were involved directing Public Parking at the Canberra Show in 2011.
Thanks to the combined efforts of Rotary Clubs of Canberra City, Woden Daybreak, Bungendore, Gungahlin, Ginninderra & Woden & the Inner Wheel Club of Canberra Woden. A Total $25,382.60 was raised.
In 2011 Rotary recieved approximately $1.80 per vehicle out of the $5 entry.
It is always a pleasure to work with everyone from our neighbouring Rotary Clubs.
For 2013, Royal National Capital Agricultural Society decided to increase the price of Public Parking from $5 to $10 with an increase to Rotary from $1.80 to $2 per vehicle. A combined decision was made by all particating Rotary Clubs not to continue with Show Parking in 2013, as it was felt that Rotary would suffer adversely from the Public perception that we recieved all the proceeds from Parking.
