Murray Bridge Show

Once again the 2016 Murray Bridge Show has been and gone and again the weather was a little against us with light showers during the morning causing inconvenience for members who attended with the presentation of their vehicles on Saturday September 24. Seven cars were displayed and set up in the usual position behind the Main Pavilion. A steady number of people wandered in to examine what was on display and our teardrop flags again gave them advance notice of what was in store for them. Many thanks go to Murray Lutz and all members who attended and helped in any way owing to my commitment to other duties. The Grand Parade, although small because of the absence of livestock, was mainly of motor vehicles and we presented the second largest group. This year a commentary was given, slightly altered from what we had submitted, describing each vehicle, with owners’ names mentioned as well, which has been missing from some previous shows. Most vehicles headed for home immediately after the Grand Parade and again I thank all who attended and helped in any way. I was a little disappointed with the small number of our vehicles attending and hope that next year we may be able to have a larger contingent. It was a very busy weekend here in the Bridge with a number of other activities attracting crowds so I think we can be pleased with what we were able to achieve. Hope we can be represented again next year for the 99th Murray Bridge Show.
