The many opportunities for Temora businesses and the community in general associated with the upcoming Warbirds Downunder will be the focus of TBEG’s meeting next week.
Temora Aviation Museum (TAM) is staging Warbirds Downunder 2018 from October 12th-13th and it is expected to be the biggest yet, with an estimated 20,000 to 25,000 people attending over the two days.
TAM and Temora Shire Council representatives will attend TBEG’s regular Beers n’ Business connect event next Thursday, February 1st, to give a special presentation and discuss the various aspects of Warbirds Downunder with the community.
Local shops and food outlets will be encouraged to have extended trading during the event period, with the days prior and the Sunday morning also expected to be very busy.
TAM is keen to have a ticketing hub located in town, and TBEG is looking into having a ‘food court’ associated with this.
TBEG is proposing to again host a Street Fest on the Saturday afternoon (subject to Council approval), following the completion of flying activities, as it did with great success during the last Warbirds.
Opportunities to provide additional private accommodation will also be discussed, with TBEG then hoping to have a workshop next month to focus on how local residents can get involved.
Expressions of interest for various aspects of Warbirds, both in town and at the Aviation Museum, will be called for.
Next Thursday’s meeting will be held from 5.30pm at the Temora Hotel, with all welcome to attend. Further details are advertised.
