Christmas, thankyous and the new year

Hello everyone,

And so we close down for what I feel was a big step forward for Tourism in this part of the state. This will be my last “waffle on”, or whatever for the year and I really hope that my little contribution has helped a few, and maybe even given someone a laugh.

We did go to the opening of the Ivanhoe Pub Friday. Caught up with some lovely people we know, and were well and truly looked after by Scott and Cas. Great night. Up to Cobar Saturday morning for what I can only describe as an enormous, heart wrenching, and beautiful funeral. What more can I say.

I am thinking of starting my little email sometime in February, I’m open to suggestion there. I hope to cover a few more towns next year, and to have a better method of gathering events.

To everyone that has sent me snippets, events and gratitude over the year, thank you all so very much. It would not have worked without you all.

Ivanhoe Christmas Raffles, Menindee Carols by Candelight, and ...

Hello everyone,

If only we could bring some of that rain out from the coast! Lot of problems down there.

How’s this for a week of activities, you’re really going to travel to make them all------.

It starts at Ivanhoe, you have to be at the RSL Club at 8 PM, (earlier if you wish of course) on Thursday for the RSL Christmas Raffles. Big heaps of prizes to be won and a top night guaranteed.

Relax in the friendly town till the next night, Friday, and Scott will host you all at the Open Night at the Pub. (which I got wrong last week). So, 2 big nights in Ivanhoe.

You have to zip down the railway track to Menindee next day to be ready for the Menindee “Carols by Candlelight”. Top night to be had there, to be sure.

Long  trip from Menindee to Nyngan!! But you see, the Nyngan Folk are going all out on next Sunday evening with their “Fabulous Carols in the Park”. Which way are you going to go? Incidentally we had a great night last Tuesday, David the Flying Padre came over for our Carols, as well as Richmond PRA, lovely girls,  well over a hundred, how good is that.
