Wasn't it great the number of members who stayed long after clock off - it has been a long time since we have seen this. Congratulations to S&T Smith taking out both the 3rd & 4th Yarraman's, Pete Woodward and Les & Bev Oberthur; winners of the first two Yarraman races. There was a number of reports of full returns from last weeks Toogoolawah toss. There have already been reports of full returns at just after 10am from the first (3rd Yarraman) race - congratulations to all concerned.
