The Rabies Rally visits Sandstone.
The Rabies Rally is an annual motorcycle event for professional people. This year their base was the Fouriesburg Country Inn and the rallyists visited Sandstone as part of the event over the last weekend. A good time was definitely had by all! The visitors enjoyed a tour of the Sandstone Collection, a steam train ride behind NG4 number 16 and an excellent lunch. Our pictures tell the story.
