The sun shone, the carts careened down the hill, with thrills, spills and family fun aplenty.
Despite a last-minute shout-out for extra cash to fund the barricades keeping the crowd safe, the derby rolled merrily on.
And the winners? Who cares, it seems. Everyone was having too much fun.
For the record, Bangalow Rugby Club claimed the grand final title for the umpteenth year running – but it’s all about being a part of it.
Organisers described Sunday’s event as ‘an incredible day’, thanking the volunteers ‘who make this event possible’; the Bangalow Lions Club ‘for running it and working tirelessly in the months leading up to the huge event; and Summerland Credit Union ‘for their amazing work as safety marshalls and adjudicators’.
‘And of course to everyone else for all the various parts they play.’
See you again next year, folks. Meanwhile enjoy Jeff Dawson’s photo gallery.
