Fast food flies out to feed crowds

THE World Rally has delivered the busiest days ever in the history of both the Lowanna and Ulong general stores.

Lowanna store proprietor Julie MacDonald said after a steady morning of trade, hordes of rally enthusiasts descended at noon.

"We thought it would be busy but we were absolutely flat out," Ms MacDonald said.

"I looked up at one stage and they were queuing out the door. I couldn't believe it.

Ms MacDonald said pies, chips, burgers and drinks were literally "walking out the door".

"There were lots of foreign accents and some of them were very thick but I didn't have any time to chat."

The pace was just as chaotic at Ulong.

The Ex-Services Club bookkeeper Tracey Booker said staff were kept busy all day.

"We were flat chat, especially around lunchtime," Ms Booker said.

"It was a cold day and so the open fire was very popular.

"Everyone was in a great mood and the mix of languages and accents was absolutely delightful."
