The whole thing is being kept very quiet,in the local paper on Fri 1/8/03 they have an article on page 2.
"Tina set for Alice car show" in it they go on about Tina Arena as the entertainer for the convention center part of the show.What vehicles will be launched but no dates.
Did hear around town that they are flying in lots of guests on chartered planes and that the launch of the Rodeo will be held at a cattle station just south of Alice,with a rodeo event.
Also heard that something like $800k is being spent on the event,don't know how true that is though.
Will try to find out more and post same if I do.

OK, what I found out today is that nobody really knows what took place.
Apparently they had a marqee big enough to drive a semi into at a place called Ouriminah for part of the show.
I went to the convention center and they were in the process of putting everything away.
So the big launch came and went without any local fanfare,except for a couple of exec's being asked to leave the casino due to intoxication and attracting too much attention to themselves.
