Xmas in July Races, Louth Races and more

Good morning all,

What a let down, travelled 1000 km. for a flight in a “Tiger Moth” (anyone remember them?), and the coastal wind beat us, wind sock horizontal! Just whinging.

Anyway, a bit of a short list tonight as I’m out and about.

We have the Xmas in July Races in Bourke coming up on the 23rd. (next Saturday). Then there’s the Lightening Ridge Opal Festival 27 to 30th. and the World of Musicals in the Hill on the 29th. One or the other!.

August brings you the legionary Louth Races on the 6th. and heaps going on in the week leading up to them.

White Cliffs is the place to be the next weekend the 13th. for the “Camel Cup”. If you can’t be there then tackle the Broken Hill Markets on the 13th.

Move on to the Mundi Mundi Bash out at Silverton on the 18/19/20th. August, really big turn out. And we finish the month off with the Wentworth Show on the 28/29th, And so ends August plus the happenings I’ve missed!

Just a reminder, the Wilcannia Motel is closed for repairs till further notice, but we still have the Liberty Motel behind the Servo and Warrawong on the Darling for accommodation and the Victory Caravan Park has water through it at the moment so also closed. A high river has a few roads closed, including each side from Wilcannia to Tilpa so please check on road conditions and take heed to closure signs.

Wentworth Fishing Comp, Carinda Races, and more

Good morning everyone,

It’s definitely winter, but then we can get warm, those poor people on the coast really have problems. We feel for them.

Quite a bit coming up out here in our magnificent looking far west. What a spectacular spring we are going to have, and I haven’t checked out the “Sturt Desert Pea” plantation for you yet but can almost guarantee it will look fabulous!

First cab off the rank as I see it is the “Wentworth Fishing Comp.” on next Saturday the 9th. and then you have to duck straight up to Pooncarie for their “Gymkhana/Bikekhana” the next day, the 10th. Both well worth a look.

You’re really going to have to skip around our outback to catch the lot. See, the Carinda Races are there for you on the next weekend the 16th. If you’re a race goer then stay up that way for the “Xmas in July Races” in Bourke on the 23rd. and no end to what else is on up there.

But then if you are near our famous Deniliquin, stop off at the RSL Club on the 30th.for a great Music Night, (call and see Jane at the VIC.)

You can’t go to both these, but, the “Lightening Ridge Opal Festival” is 27th. to 30th. and “The World of Musicals” is in Broken Hill on the 29th. If that hasn’t confused you for July then well done!

August starts with the “Louth Races” on the 6th August. Remember how good their Field Day was, well the races are exceptional.
