Repco Rally volunteers camp out
THE family that rallies together, stays together. At least that's the case with the McGraa family of Brisbane.
Father Andy, mother Liz and daughter Sam McGraa are among an army of 1000 volunteers for the Repco Rally Australia.
The McGraas have been camped out at Kyogle Showgrounds since Saturday with more people expected to turn the historic venue into a tent city by the weekend.
But it is a labour of love for Andy and his family who volunteer for up to eight rallies a year.
“I just love the bush, and the cars, and it is great to get out into the countryside,” he said.
“We get the times from where they finish. They come to us 300m after that and we fill in the times on our card and their card, and then they are on their way again.”
The McGraas were among the first volunteers to offer their services once the rally was confirmed, and they also happened to be among the first to arrive at the camping ground in Kyogle.
