Good morning all,

Just got a bit carried away last week end, (long week end) and let you all down. Never mind, all events went well I believe, big roll up in Ivanhoe and a great outlook with heaps of green feed coming along. We can only hope the weather closes in on those who have missed out.

A few events happening still, starting with a great night of 50’s / 60’s music at the Red Earth Opal Cafe in White Cliffs this coming Thursday. Should be an enjoyable evening if you are within cooee of the Opal town.

If you’re down in the southern area, then drop in to Deniliquin, and enjoy the “Acacia Quartet” on Friday night and the sights of “Deni” for the weekend.

Moving across the state, as you do, we have the Scone Races on next Monday the 24th. While in that area of “the inside country”, the State Pony Club Show Jumping Championships are being held at Denman from the 6th. to the 9th. July. If you’re into horses and the like.

Stretching out a bit now, but equally as important is the Tilpa Gymkhana, and associated events, it’s all happening at Tilpa on the 20th. July. More on that when we get closer.

The next day the 21st. July will be worth while to be in Broken Hill at the Civic Centre for “A Taste of Ireland”. This will be fantastic, and you need to book to avoid disappointment.

Our Driver Reviver was well patronised last week end, absolutely amazing where people come from and are heading to.

If you’re travelling on the Cobb highway, Ivanhoe / Wilcannia these days, be mindful of any rain showers in the area. it takes very little to put the side tracks out where they are working.

The rain has certainly done away with the ‘roo problem on our roads, but still be on the look out just the same.

Till I find some more entertainment for you all next week, have fun and look out for your mate. Cheers for now, Bill Elliott. WCTA.
