Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

RES­I­DENTS met mo­torhome own­ers on their own turf when the CMCA Solo Net­work opened the gates for a mar­ket day in the Biggenden show­grounds re­cently.

It was an op­por­tu­nity for in­ter­ested in­di­vid­u­als and or­gan­i­sa­tions to hold a stall as well as check out the mo­torhomes.

Biggenden Apex Club mem­bers cooked up a storm for a break­fast of ba­con and egg burg­ers be­fore the Dal­larnil State School P& C took over for lunch feed­ing the hun­gry crowd with ke­babs and a sausage siz­zle.

In­side the hall, res­i­dents could check out the danc­ing skills of the mo­torhomers who had en­joyed danc­ing lessons dur­ing the week.

Dur­ing the week the vis­i­tors had en­joyed a shindig in the barn and a race day com­plete with fash­ion pa­rade

The ma­jor­ity of the 250-plus mo­torhome own­ers have left Biggenden but not be­fore they had spent a re­ported $44,000 in the town.

Some of the no­mads are stop­ping in the area to as­sist with BlazeAid and Aussie Helpers while oth­ers are headed to Mary­bor­ough for this week’s national rally.
