It is with regret that The Darling Downs Veteran and Vintage Motor Club Inc. advises that it has come to the decision that the 2021 Toowoomba Swap be cancelled.
The health, safety and welfare of our swap patrons, swap site-holders, swap volunteers, club members and the community at large is the primary concern of the club. This concern, together with State Government restrictions in place for the operation of events the size of the Toowoomba Swap compel the club to take this action.
An event the size of the Toowoomba Swap requires a lot of planning, which had already begun, and involves considerable expenditure prior to the event. The uncertainty which exists in relation to COVID-19 creates an unacceptable risk should circumstances change and would mean that if at short notice the Swap suddenly cannot be held as planned, there would be serious financial implications, as well as inconvenience for Swap Site-holders.
All current swap site bookings will be rolled over to the 2022 Swap to be held on 5th and 6th February, 2022, unless a site-holder would prefer a refund. Site-holders who wish to receive a refund should notify the club’s Booking Office via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 0400 345 564 before 31st December, 2020. Swap site bookings that are cancelled would not be reserved for the 2022 Swap.
