On May the 4th, 1920, a man arrives in Tumut, NSW to become proprietor of the Wynyard Hotel. With wife, Veronica and three young children, the family quickly becomes involved in the social and sporting life of the town. Along the way, he buys an “Old Tin Pot”. Little does he realise, that this “Old Tin Pot” – the Maher Cup – would play a significant part in the social/economic and sporting life of the South-Western slopes and the Riverina.
