The country township of Tumut, which is often referred as the northern or western gateway to the Kosciuszko National Park, played host for the 1998 TR Register Concours.
The Tumut township is located in the Tumut River Valley and the surrounding districts are known for their apple orchards and pine plantations. In brilliant sunshine Tumut’s Richmond Park was awash with a spectacular display of 40 immaculate TR 2 -3 – 3A -3Bs including a Swallow Doretti.
Darcie Reynolds was the Chief Judge and was assisted by Ken Gillanders, a TR enthusiast visiting from the U.S. and Ken’s visit will be long remembered as he wore a huge Stars and Stripes top hat as he wandered around the TRs being judged.
Robert Schafer’s pristine TR3A took out the Laurie Cousin Trophy.
On the Sunday, some of the areas attractions were visited which included a tour of the Tumut No.3 Power Station at Talbingo, a key component in the massive Snowy Mountains Hydro-Electricity Scheme, before concluding the week-end with a farewell luncheon at “The Bank” in nearby Adelong.
