Jan Parker said the event had proved once again to be popular with locals and visitors alike.
“It was a great night – the mild weather was perfect and everyone enjoyed themselves,” she said.
“The crowd was extremely well behaved and providing additional entertainment after the main event had finished proved to be a popular move with the competitors.”
Fellow organiser Brett Ryan was quick to say he believed the 2013 event was “the best ever”.
“I reckon it’s the biggest Yarrawonga event we’ve had,” he said, “both in terms of the crowd and the number of entries.
“The weather was awesome, the competitors put on a great show and everyone had a great night. If you didn’t get out and enjoy it this year you definitely missed out.”
