Another event which attracted a lot of attention was the tractor balancing competition, where contestants had to balance a Ferguson 35.
The wind turbine exhibition, displaying how green energy can work, was very popular among visitors, as were all of the events that took place on the day.
The rally was planned by a committee of 20, all members of the Rock Inn Vintage Club, since November last year.

Refreshments were provided for all who participated in the event, and the committee would like to thank those who worked tirelessly all day to keep proceedings running smoothly.
