Both Philip and I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for making our trip to Blayney for the Billy Cart Bash so enjoyable. We arrived late Saturday afternoon and booked into the lovely Central Motel. The helpful staff were able to answer all our questions, not only about the race but about the history of the area and its surrounds. After a quick trip to Church Hill to check out the track (and wow, at a view from the lookout at the top of the hill!) and a look around town we were getting a bit hungry so we thought we might try the local bowling club for a bite to eat. However this was not to be as the club had just closed as we arrived. Not to worry though - the man who had just locked up the club saw us, asked if we were after somewhere to eat, was able to recommend the bistro at the hotel and give us easy directions to follow. It was this kind of hospitalitiy, which we found everywhere in Blayney, that really made our trip special. After a substantial meal we retired for the night to ready ourselves for the big race day. When we arrived at the race on Sunday morning, although the weather was cold and windy, everyone we met was warm and friendly and there was such a sense of excitement and celebration in the air we knew we were in for a great day. From the first carts speeding down the hill to the presentation at the end of the day, things seemed to run smoothly and contstantly to the great enjoyment of all involved. This would be due to some wonderful organisation and planning from all behind the scenes who got this race up and running. Congratulations. As we headed back to Newcastle on Sunday afternoon all we could talk about was what a wonderful place Blayney is. We made some new friends and some lasting memories. So thank you and we look forward to seeing you next year (if not before!) Kind Regards Alison & Philip
