Pooncarie Gun Shoot, Nyngan Ag. Expo and much more

Good morning all,

Yes back again, and thanks so much for the enquiries from Balranald and Brewarrina, brochures on the way girls.

Have done a fair amount of travelling since last we met and sadly nothing but dry barren ground. Still, hope you are all having a fantastic trip wherever you are heading.

A few events that may interest you in your travels. Next Friday in Broken Hill you can drop off your lady at the Library, she’ll have a wow of a morning at the “Knit and Yarn”, and get a cup of coffee! 

Of course you may as well sit back at the “Demo or the Muso’s” and fill in the morning.

As I’ve mentioned before, there’s heaps going on in Bourke this time of the year. Drop in and see Margaret at the “Back O Bourke” she’ll sort you out.

Then if you can arrange your trip to be at Pooncarie on the 28th, you can have a great day at the Annual Gun Shoot there. It makes no difference if you can’t use a shoot gun, just go along and those people will make you welcome.

That takes us up to the Nyngan Ag. Expo on the 4th. August. Caught up with my dear friend Glad at the Nyngan Railway Museum the other day, she has a book on sale there showing the history of the railways in Nyngan over many years. If you are into Nyngan area history it’s a great book.

Moving on from there, if you are into sport, I can guarantee an enjoyable day in Broken Hill on the 12th. August. It’s the grand final of the newly formed Women’s Rugby League Comp. Clean open football, they just love their game. A pleasure to watch.

Now while all this is happening there are guided Tours going on all of July at Mungo National Park, and lots of various tours happening at Tri State Tours based in Argent St. in the Hill. Something for everyone. While in the Hill, check out the RFDS Base, School of the Air, they do a fantastic job and will welcome you. Anyway, you’d better plan your journey to be in the Hill on the 7 8 9th.September and catch up with the Broken Heel Festival. It’s getting bigger every year.

Make sure you have a couple of buttons set on your radio to 999 ABC Broken Hill, 585 Outback radio Bourke, and 1585 ABC Wilcannia. Don’t forget we have a Dump Point here in Wilcannia, as well as 2 great caravan Parks, 2 Motels, best Chinese food within cooee, and a great coffee shop, what else could you ask for? 

Please stop in all our little towns, they’ll welcome you and we’ll see you on the run.

Take care now, till next week. Cheers Bill Elliott.  WCTA.
