The first Bash was organised in 1985 by businessman, explorer and philanthropist Dick Smith. He wanted to take a few mates for a drive in the Outback in old cars and at the same time, raise money for charity. Dick charged participants to enter the Bash, which travelled from Sydney to Bourke and then to Burketown in Norther n Queen sland. That tradition continues with Tasbash participants raising money throughout the year and then travelling the state, causing a bit of har mless mayhem and bringing plenty of fun to children at various schools and community events. Since its inception in Tasmania, the Bash has raised around three million dollars, enabling Variety to continue its vital work within the Tasmanian community. The money raised means Variety is able to provide special-needs children with opportunities that increase their quality of life and fulfil their potential. It achieves this through the provision of equipment, facilities and life experiences such as Sunshine Coaches, Liberty Wheelchair Swings, wheelchairs, walking frames, second skin suits, communication devices and body cycles. 2009 saw a record year for Tasbash, with more than $250,000 being raised. With several new entries for the 20th year, the challenge will be on to see if the record can be broken! This year's Tasbash will start in Ulverstone on Saturday 16 October and finish with a celebration dinner in Hobart on the following Saturday. For information, call the Variety office on 6223 1886.

Our Roadside team inspected well over 150 vehicles during the program, checking tyres, batteries, lights and cooling system s, among other tests. We identified a number of problems that can contribute to winter breakdowns, including faulty batteries and charging systems. We also noted some incorrectly-installed child restraints, a number of faulty seat belts and a high percentage of tyre-related issues.
