Brisbane Billycart Championships - preparation and setup

The Brisbane Billycart Championships are on Sunday 18 August, so today saw Damian, Tricia and their boys head down to the Carindale Recreation Reserve in Cadogan Street Carindale, to help the members of the Rotary Club of Carindale with the setting up of the course, starting ramps, bunting etc...

In addition to this, Damian, who is the MC for the Billycart Championships, worked through some of the communication protocols and runsheet...

Shoving hay bales around...


Lining them up...


Looking pretty good from this angle!!

Someone tall to grab the rope for the main banner... Damian is just the man for the job!!

Aidan testing out a modified cart...


That was a success, so time to test out a traditional cart...


Off he goes!!


And OFF he goes!!


Tracks back in place...

Going good so far!!

Enough fun, more painting to be done...

With the setup pretty much done and dusted, Damian, Tricia and the boys headed home to rest up, ready for the huge day that is going to be the 2013 Brisbane Billycart Championships!!
 
Be there, or be square!!  You can sign your kids up on the day, borrowing a cart if you don't have your own, so come one, come all and make this a huge and successful event!!
