Obi Car and Bike Show

A LOYAL and committed team of organisers put together a day for local car and bike enthusiasts recently.

The Obi Hall had an original and interesting bike and memorabilia display set up, with bikes and other assorted antiques from yesteryear displayed.

Some of the bikes, possibly dating back to the early 1900s, would have been a mission to move from their safe keeping place and take along to present.

Thanks to those who brought along their heirlooms and had them there for others to see.

The hall committee has decided to plan ahead for the next Obi Car and Bike Show in another two years.
