It was a busy week­end for or­gan­is­ers and all the vol­un­teers that as­sisted in the event.

Mr Rise­ley said it was a great day con­sid­er­ing all the other events on around the re­gion on the week­end.

“Com­pared to past events, num­bers through the gate were down. Over­all we had happy cus­tomers and ex­hibitors.

“I want to thank the SES for all their as­sis­tance and the Viet­nam Vets for sup­port­ing the event by man­ning the en­try gate to the rally,” Mr Rise­ley said.

Ex­hibitors de­scended on Bull­yard for the event from all over the re­gion, in­clud­ing Glad­stone.

Mr Rise­ley said the Rum City Vin­tage Ma­chin­ery Club was al­ways keen to wel­come new mem­bers to the club.

“We have a Face­book page and the club en­cour­age oth­ers to like the page,” he said.

The big win­ner on the week­end was the Bull­yard Hall as money raised from the week­end rally will go to its main­te­nance and up­keep.

The hall com­mit­tee rely on do­na­tions and com­mu­nity events to help in the care of the build­ing and equip­ment.

“We hope that next year our vin­tage ma­chin­ery dis­play will at­tract more visi­tors to the rally and to the re­gion,” Mr Rise­ley said.
