Silver City Cup, Cobar Miner's Festival, and more

Cober Miner's Festival

Good morning all,

Well it seems the ‘airline’ carrying my email back to you all last week must have lost it at the Adelaide airport! Not sure who got it, and if you did it was thanks to Fiona. I’m trying a different approach this time, I’m sure it will work, but apologies anyway.

I am attaching the flyer for the Miners Festival in Cobar which incidentally starts today. Down load it if you can, will be a lot of fun, and it runs for the full week.

So next weekend, head for Broken Hill. The annual “Silver City Cup” is being run next Saturday, and as well there’s entertainment for you at the refurbished and “rejigged” Civic Centre with “Celtic Illusion”. Sounds like a great weekend, you better include a relaxing Sunday at Silverton or Mt. Gipps to round it all off.

Melbourne Cup day is just around the corner too  you know, most of our little out back towns will have something on and will welcome you along. The White Cliffs Pub is going out of it’s way to entertain you. The Wilcannia Golf Club is having a gettogether for all as well, and the Tourism Association is running a photo competition at the club, it will be on display that day and winners will be announced that afternoon. Come along and join in. Naturally our super Chinese restaurant will be open and ready to round your day off with Richard’s sumptuous cooking. Plenty of accommodation as well, with our 2 Caravan Parks, and 2 Motels, drop in and stay a day or 2.

With the odd storm getting about, you should check on road conditions if you are venturing on a dirt road, I know I’m a bit optimistic but who knows when the next shower is coming.

Only a short one this week, don’t want to have excess luggage!

Till next week, take care and say hi to a stranger, it’s a small world. Cheers Bill Elliott. WCTA.
