Tinto Twin History

This event is a two day competition which is held in October each year. It is a night and day competition as the first part of the event is on a Saturday night and the other part is on the Sunday morning.

The first Tinto Twin event was held at Carmichael Estate at the Halloween weekend in 1988. Those of us who were there can remember that when Sunday dawned it was a bitterly cold morning having had a very heavy overnight frost. We thought we had done very well to have flushing toilets hired in from the council. Great but the council official who delivered them on the Friday insisted that he should fill the supply tank with water. They froze and we ended up with a bit of a mess!
