Motorhomes roll in and spend big
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.
