Hi Bruce, I will be there in the AM of Sat and likely help out on the Utopia stand around peak period. I have to head down to Brisbane Sat afternoon for a birthday bash for my brother.

The diehards are lined up at the gate well prior to the 8:00 am opening times, by 9:00 am most of parking is filled and by 10:00 am the town of Nambour is a mess with traffic backed up to the Bruce Highway.

Some BIG $$$ changes hands for the most exotic and collectable Broms etc. first thing on Friday morning, I heard the figure of $1,500.00 a few times.
