Millmerran Camp Oven Festival October 2012 part 2

The entertainment at the festival was great. Included was a great machinery display,the old water pumps and generators from years gone by were all cranked up and running.IMG_0143 IMG_0142

Also on site there was a tractor pulling event with some heavily modified old machinery. It was great to watch and there was even a couple of very young kid’s somehow driving in the competition. I say somehow because I could not understand how on earth they could reach the peddles to drive them.

Also on display were a few wonderfully restored vehicles.

Sunday was the last day of the festival and  day of rest for most except the competition cooks.

Shirley and the “Pot Scrubbers” were very proud of their achievements. They came in third over all and only missed second place by 1/2 a point. The prize money for their efforts was $395 (not too bad for a bunch of scrubbers Laughing out loud). They did manage a first for their savoury damper,third for the bread loaf,second for the Saturday main meal which was whole chicken done in bread (see our blog part 4 of trip north to behold our efforts at the chicken in bread it was superb),they also achieved second for apple turnovers,second for cheese straws and finally a third for their Chelsea bun. Well done guy’s.

A lot of campers left on Sunday, guess they had to work Monday. We packed and said farewell to those remaining and headed to Rangemore Estate Winery at Maclagan at the base of the Bunya Mountains for a few days R&R after such a stressful week at Millmerran,well maybe not so stressful Laughing out loud

We do look forward to two years time. I would be nice to come along and give Shirley some support.

Cheers for now from the Kyd’s.
