Sometimes in life, luck is on your side ! In conjunction with the fantastic Tropfest Short Film Festival and judging, Toyota ( a major sponsor) ran a consumer competition. In 250 words or less you had to tell the judges all about your best Toyota Corolla experience.
For Mrs W and I, it was centred on my (then) brand new, big bad orange with cream interior, Corolla Hatch. My first car and we headed off for a weekend of ‘culture’ (!) at the Woodstock of the day, the 1974 Sunbury Pop Festival in Victoria.
Meanwhile moving forward to 2013 – 10 lucky Tropfest national winners were selected and YES we were part of the chosen few. The new home, Centennial Park in Sydney is spectacular. The event organization and staging was superb and our Toyota prize of air fares, accommodation, food/beverages and all transfers was a knockout.
The old adage about creating your own luck and being in it, to win it, is very true.
Oh and did I mention, I made my screen debut at Tropfest ? Have a gander…
