Thank you
Just a note of thanks to all those who attended our event on 7th and 8th August. We had an excellent turn out  for the road run and BBQ on Friday night with about 222 tractors taking part. Saturday was also well attended by visitors from near and far who were able to enjoy the harvesting of oats and potatoes, the mini tractors and horses working, and the tractor pulling in full swing in the working field. There were also lots of visitors enjoying the displays and stalls in the main rally field and the shuttle trailers were kept busy all day ferrying people between the two fields. We were lucky with the weather on both days even if the ground was a little damp.

We appreciate your continued support, hope you enjoyed our event, and look forward to seeing you again next year on 13 August 2016.

Thanks again. 

Trevor McBurney, Chairman

Presentation to Belfast City Mission
CDTEC was recently pleased to present a cheque to Belfast Central Mission in support of their new Copelands Dementia Centre being planned for the old Childhaven site near Millisle.   The funds were raised by a tractor road run held in the Ballyhay area, near Millisle at Easter. Raymond Strain, from Ballyhay, is seen making the presentation to Brian Burns, the director of Belfast Central Mission. 

Our thanks go to all those who helped organise, or participated in, the event. This is the fourth donation the club has made to good causes in the last year
