5th, 6th August 2017

The sun shone and the bands played. Then the bands finished and the rain came! We have been entertained by the East Yorkshire Guitar Club today, including the Fentone 4, Shadows Music, and Legend, who kept a busy paddock of visitors entertained all afternoon. In support we had a bar (which sold out) and the Tea Hut, now returned to its normal green colour. Weighbridge Teas were also open at the Station entrance to keep all our visitors fed and watered. Another 12 hour day for our catering team by the time they had cleared up, but the excellent income does make it all worthwhile. With the visitors gone, it was time to tidy up again, putting damp covers and sound tents inside the main marquee to allow them to dry out for the week, before they get put away.
During the rest of the weekend there was just time to set up marquee, bar and sound booth; lay out the power cables; cut the paddock (with the small mower as our big one still won’t start despite several hours of trying) and generally prepare the Station for the main event.

    In Queensland we’ve learned never to complain about the rain !. Best wishes to the Weighbridge Tea Team. Great to see the teak coaches so beautifully repaired. Well done all.
