Hundreds gathered at Bray Park for the opening announcements earlier today by event president Jeff Amos.

The event was launched with a sponsors evening last night.

There was a strong speech from Jeff, when he thanked some of the key people and sponsors involved over the last 20 years.

They're ready for a big night of draws, prizes and weigh ins, with chairs already set up near the stage.
