Apologies for my tardiness in posting this feature, Our President is still on the road after a trip to the inside country for a catch up with some former residents of Wilcannia. A surprise party was in in order and apparently lived up to all expectation.

Hot on 'The Heel' of this past weekends festivities in Broken Hill, yet another weekend of fun is to be had in Broken Hill. Presenting the Silver City Show on the 19th, 20th, 21st, enjoy a day and evening out at the “Silver City Show”. You can’t beat a good old fashioned country show.

Wilcannia will be holding a belated, 'Clean up Australia Day' this Saturday, registration at Baker Park 9am. Focus area will be on the Barrier Highway, East of the township. 

There’s a Fishing Comp. happening at Wentworth on the 21st. And the best way to enjoy that is a relaxing drive down the Darling. Start wherever you like, take in Nelia Gaari Farm stay, Menindee, drop out to Kinchega for a look. Toodle on down to the Arnold family at Bindara Farm Stay, a day or two here and there and you’re in Wentworth and more fun!

Going north of course you have the evergreen Tilpa, Kallara Farm Stay, on up to Louth, have a yarn to Cathy at the pub. Now you’re in “Trilby” country and heaps to do all the way to Bourke. Make sure you go to the “Back ‘O Bourke Gallery and see Jenny Greentree’s Art Exhibition too, it’s still going.

Topping of the weekend, Lee Kernaghan will be at his ever best at the Civic Centre in the Hill too, on the 22nd,   featuring his 'Back road nation tour'. Which takes us up to the end of the month and you all head to Tibooburra for their big Gymkhana etc. on the 4th. to the 6th. October.

Kind regards,
