The Deniliquin Ute Muster 2010 World Record for the number of blue singlets being worn was smashed on Saturday, with 3924 people wearing blueys ahead of the 2010 record of 3500.By Zoe McMaugh
AFL celebrity Billy Brownless proved a great enticement for people to make their way to the World Record Blue Singlet Muster on Saturday.
Brownless was the first ‘singleted’ person to enter the new make-shift arena in front of the main stage.
He stuck around through the entire count and helped hoist the giant blue singlet alongside Olympic swimmers Melanie Schlanger and Chris Wright and Geelong star Tom Hawkins.
Ute Muster fans helped smash the standing blue singlet count record, with 3924 people wearing blueys.
There were so many people wanting to take part, organisers were forced to extend the arena by moving the boundaries back but still couldn’t get everyone in.
There were still able to count everyone however, with the 2010 world record of 3500 blue singlets falling comfortably.
There was no doubt that headline act Alan Jackson, a US country superstar, was the drawcard for many.
