WITH the prospect of lightning, pennant golf was
called off on Sunday.
And there was a sign on the door at the State
Coal Mine to say that the big Sustainability Festival
had also been abandoned.
The change in the weather also challenged the
Luminous Street Festival around the Western Port
But a cold snap, accompanied by plenty of rain
wasn’t about to discourage a hardy group of local
tractor enthusiasts who still embarked on their
first local tractor rally as a show of solidarity with
the dairy farmers who are still doing it tough at
“At short notice and with the weather turning
against us, we didn’t get quite the numbers we’d
hoped for but it’s been a success all the same,”
said organiser Russell Sanders.
“We’ve got people here from up at Bairnsdale
who say they are going to run one, others from
Bendigo who plan to do likewise and we’ve also got
an official from the Harry Ferguson Association of
Australia, who came along to encourage us.
“I definitely think it’s got potential but I think
some people who might have liked to come and
bring their tractor might have felt a bit self-con-
scious about it.”
They needn’t have worried.
It was just a fun community event with a deli-
cious barbecue lunch turned on by the Rotary
Club of Phillip Island, with meat supplied by the
machinery dealers of Leongatha.
Drivers of about a dozen tractors set off from the
Wonthaggi Recreation Reserve at 9am, headed for
Glen Forbes where they stopped for morning tea,
then on to Glen Alvie for lunch.
With the weather turning cold, the tractor driv-
ers tried to rug up and suit-up in their wet weather
But after thawing out in the Glen Alvie Hall,
conversation was soon animated, especially about
how much better the event could be in good weath-
er with more support.
“We’ll look at running it again some other time,
now that we know what we’re doing but we’ll just
leave it for a while now. All in all, we were pretty
happy with it,” said Russell.
