Organisers are pleased with Deniliquin's Spring Rally attendance after the event was held at Memorial Park on Saturday and Sunday.By Tyla Harrington
Organisers ‘‘couldn’t be happier’’ with the ninth annual Spring Rally held at Memorial Park on Saturday and Sunday.
Rally secretary and Collectors Club treasurer Daryl Whateley estimated about 2000 people attended the event.
Collectors of all sorts including those who collect tractors, cars, buttons, books and more were in attendance.
The Show ‘n’ Shine on Sunday attracted 105 cars and Mr Whateley said about 70 tractors and 12 trucks were also on display.
The event also featured Fordson tractors.
‘‘The pavilion was massively full and you can’t complain with that,’’ Mr Whateley said.
‘‘The gate numbers were fantastic.
‘‘There was about 30 swap sites and the grounds were magnificent with thanks to council parks and ground staff.
‘‘The weather really smiled on us and numbers were up on last year.
‘‘We got the same numbers on Sunday as we did on Saturday and that’s terrific, and not what we usually get.
‘‘I think it comes down to the weather.’’
The event also featured a tractor trek and tractor pull, which Mr Whateley said organisers were happy with.
‘‘It isn’t about making money as the event doesn’t cost a lot to hold,’’ he said.
‘‘Everyone who comes does it for nothing, the support from the community has been phenomenal.
‘‘We are very, very pleased and thankful from the advertising from Pastoral Times and 2QN.
‘‘We’ve had massive support from local businesses.’’
Mr Whateley said he would like to thank Central IGA supermarket for its support with advertising.
‘‘People are already asking about next year (the 10th anniversary) .
‘‘It will also be 100 years of dodge next year, so dodge will have to be a feature (of the 2014 Spring Rally).’’
