I went along to the annual Brisbane Billycart Championships yesterday at Carindale Recreation Reserve. I recorded this piece for 612 ABC Brisbane as their Community Correspondent for the region.
The numbers were down on last year’s championships with it raining heavily the day before. However the sun came out for the billycarters and it was a fantastic day! Once again, Carindale Rotary did an amazing job coordinating the event.
I’ve collated some related tweets in this storify collection below to help illustrate the day. There’s also our billycarts Facebook album.
