Jimmy Barnes salutes crew

Crew of a certain age filled the Bald Faced Stag Hotel in Sydney’s Leichhardt on Sunday July 21st for the first Sydney reunion of crew who worked professionally prior to 1992. Several hundred survivors gathered to pay homage to the 80 who have passed since, and to celebrate life in general.

Jimmy Barnes entertained the masses after official thanks and proceedings. The Australian Road Crew Association P/L (A.R.C.A.) is a not-for-profit company, with the motto: Supporting our own with feeling and a ‘Whole Lotta Love’.

Its first event was The Founders Launch in 2012 at St Kilda. “The reaction was bigger [and considerably more emotional] than any of the organizers could have anticipated. Simply amazing – a respect and a love for each other that’s never been diminished … just like we saw each other yesterday”, founder Ian ‘Piggy’ Peel said.
