Oldies set to pull 'em in at Orford

The annual Orford vintage rally is shaping up to be bigger and better than ever with organisers expecting a record number of exhibitors.

The annual event held at the Orford sports ground has exhibitors coming from Victoria and South Australia to display vintage engines, cars, bikes, trucks and tractors. 

President of the Orford sports ground Terry Rowbottom expects that up to 90 exhibitors will provide plenty of entertainment throughout the weekend with a vintage tractor pull and sheep shearing competition set to be crowd favourites. 

“Every year it’s getting bigger and better,” Mr Rowbottom said.

“We’ve got a shearing competition on the Sunday between Orford and Macarthur and it’s always a winner.”

Vintage shearing blades and machinery will also be on show with the Blue Gums band providing entertainment on Saturday afternoon until late.

As well as vintage engines and vehicles, a lamb with fives legs will make its public debut with it set to raise a few eyebrows. 

“It’s been kept a big secret up until now. Hopefully it gives everyone something to talk about,” Mr Rowbottom said.

More than 2000 people are expected to attend the weekend rally which runs from 9am until late on Saturday and 9am to 5pm on Sunday.
