A few questions have been asked about a few ol bangers heading to Boort this last weekend. Mostly as to why it was not advertised and which club organised it.
To clear the air, this run was nothing more than a few mates going for a drive to see uncle Crackers. Nothing more, nothing less.
No club was involved with the organisation of this run, nor was any club regalia displayed.
The spanner sculptor is a man by the name of John Piccoli.
John is a true gentleman that has spent his life confined to wheel chair and only started sculpting 13 years ago after retiring from farming.
Many thousand spanners have been consumed in his work. Some of his sculptures are getting up to a ton in weight and the tallest I saw being a 7m high marlin.
The shearer below is very detailed.

Thanks for the Pics GM & Gilly
Looks like a very nice place,
Loved the story about the Sculptures and the gentleman who did them.
So Boort must be like a spanner magnet, I always wondered where my missing ones went
Will have to make a visit there soon [smiley=happy.gif]
