Rally pulls a crowd

 

THE Korumburra Working Horse and Tractor Rally attracted a great many people to its marvellous display of machinery and Clydesdales on the weekend.

With the theme being ‘veteran’ the enormous number of exhibits, on land leased from Metro Quarries near Bass Gas on the South Gippsland Highway at Nyora, brought a bygone era to life.

The event attracted an estimated 2000 people over the weekend and according to the president of the organising committee, Pat Kennedy, the event gets bigger by the year.

Mr Kennedy, clearly delighted with how smoothly the event was running and the number of people in attendance, said, “We are most thankful for the rain which was badly needed and nowhere more so than here where it has settled the dust.

“The rain has given way to very pleasant conditions with all of the foot traffic, not to mention the machinery moving around the grounds.”

The exhibits are assembled mainly from South Gippsland but included some from South Australia and New South Wales and included a vast array of vintage cars from the Bass Coast, South Gippsland and Mornington Peninsula car clubs including more than 40 A and T Model Fords.

High sights: William Hoyle from Koonoomoo via Cobram aims to make the Australian Under 21 wood chopping team by the time he is 15. He owned his first axe when he was a two year old. He was instructed at the Korumburra Working Horse and Tractor Rally at Nyora on Saturday by Daryl Smallman of the Retired Police Axeman’s Club.
