Great weather and big crowd for popular Seymour Labour Day event.CHALPAT SONTI March 12, 2014 4:43am
Some great weather saw a large crowd enjoy a traditional Labour Day highlight in Seymour on Monday.
What would certainly be the best turnout in recent years had plenty to pore over at the Labour Day Bush Market and Great Duck Race at Goulburn Park.
There were about 100 stalls at the market run by Lions Club of Seymour Goulburn, while 500 plastic ducks provided the usual highlight on the river.
And the 22nd running of the race was a triumph for radio station Seymour FM.
‘‘Aunty Alice’’, duck 337 and owned by station legend Alice Solomon, was first across the line to win the $1000 winner’s prize. Second and $200 went to Emily Kemp with ‘‘Emily’’ (duck 442) and third was Margaret Canny with ‘‘809’’ (duck 309). She donated the $100 to the SES Seymour unit.
As much interest was in the best duck names: Seymour FM’s Robert Rickard won $50 for ‘‘4 Duck’s Sake’’, with one of the four $10 consolation prizes going to the station’s Anton Van Der Lely for ‘‘Snap Quackle and Pop’’.
Other consolation prizes were won by Tracey Munro (Duck ‘n’ Weave), Ros Rutherford (Ducks of Hazard) and James Hyland (The Great Quacksby).
