The cold, wet weather didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of all who gathered at Transport Repairs’ yard in Gore. A lot of time was put into preparing entries and the quality was as high as usual, with numbers up on last year; a reflection of both the work the show committee put in and a sign operators from around the south are still keen to come along in support. It is an awkward time of year, with stock trucks busy on cattle movements and log trucks having just spent a week in the bush, so there isn’t a lot of time to get trucks clean. By the end of the week there aren’t many clean trucks about, so these entrants put in an enormous effort to get gear ready for early Saturday morning. With a large number of categories, the prizes put up by a long list of sponsors was certainly appreciated, further ensuring the show’s success. All involved hope it remains as popular as it was this year. The committee is looking for more volunteers if anyone from the area is interested for future events. . 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
