Longwarry Truck Show February 2013

The inaugural Longwarry Football Club Historic Truck Show was held on February 2 and 3, 2013 at the Longwarry Recreation Reserve. It was a great event with a good turn up. Great venue, food was good and it was well run and hopefully it will be back bigger and better next year.  Around 80 trucks came to the event on the two days and I believe that we took a picture of all of them.
