The Robertson Show has been hailed as another success.

The potato races in the men's and women races each had 30 entrants and the prize money was split evenly after a number of complaints were made about gender inequality

A Go Fund me Page raised $3030 dollars of the $1450 need to make it even.

Show Society President Lisa Stratford says what happens to the left over money is not up to them.

There were also around 2500 entries in the pavilion.
