At 11am on Friday 10 July, Ann and I left Mount. Druitt with the UD tiltray loaded with the Bedford and the little red car in the trailer.  Our first stop was Beresfield where we had lunch.  We then continued onto
Wauchope arriving at 4.30pm. Bruce Brown and Bob Irwin had already arrived and set up camp at the showground.  After catching up with organiser Kirby Maxwell we unloaded the truck and had dinner at the showground, courtesy of the lions club.  There was a light shower of rain in the evening so we headed off to our nice warm hotel room.

Early Saturday morning, the sun appeared and the day remained fine all day.  We found Peter Hand had arrived over night with his dodge and caravan in tow.  We enjoyed the main parade. Bruce was interviewed for Truckstop TV.

The meal was great  and so was the company.  The dinner was followed by the trophy presentation. Bruce won best “Truck Not Listed” for his Toyota. Peter won an award for his Dodge while I got a first for the Bedford. So overall Western Sydney cleaned up and was well represented. Sunday turned out to be a nice day but just a bit windy.  The stallholders at the swap meet had a trying time to save their tents and wares from blowing away.  After the main parade at 11a.m. we then loaded up.  About 1pm we headed for home arriving home 6p.m. . our club members there were Andy Nash, Bruce Brown, Peter Hand, Bob Irwin, Charlie Xerri and Michael Kennedy.  It was another great weekend with a great bunch of people showing off our pride and joys.
