I met a man from Range Road, Glenquarry, who had not missed a Robertson Show in 81 years. He was 81 years old.
Rumour has it that the rules for the Potato Race will be changed next year, to restrict entries to people from Robertson (and maybe Kangaloon and Glenquarry, and possibly even Burrawang). Why? To prevent the outrages which occurred this year, of "outsiders" winning the Mens (Senior) and Junior Races. The Junior Men's prize went to a guy from Moss Vale. The Senior men's prize went to a man from Bowral, who might indeed possibly be a South African. Is nothing sacred?
Word is that Hope Waters, proprietor of the General Store, was pleased to be able to display the "poster" for the Southern Highlands news today, with its banner headlines about Robertson. That makes a pleasant change.
