Good morning all,

Well it seems the Shows and Gymkhanas are drawing to a close, but we still have a heap in front of us to keep you all occupied.

First cab off the rank is the famous Agfair resurrected again in Broken Hill starting next Friday and taking in Saturday as well. A double header in The Hill too as the Art Gallery is opening on Friday as well. All refurbished and ready for your visit.

If you are a racing fan then the Cobar Races are also on next Saturday! Decisions, decisions! But guess what? The Military Museum in Wentworth has a gala day too next Friday, honestly, where to next?

If you end up in Broken Hill, don’t forget to duck out and say hi to Peter and Patsy at the Silverton Hotel. They are probably too tired to talk but say hi. Also slip out to The Resort at Mt. Gipps, hospitality plus there.

Had a couple of groups rowing down the Darling recently. They are ‘over the moon’ with the journey. And speaking of the Darling River, now is the time to do the “Darling Run”. You see, there are really great Farm Stays and towns waiting to greet you. Let’s start at Bourke. You have Cathy’s Pub at Louth, Liz to look after you at Trilby Station. Kim has heaps for you to see at Dunlop Station, (on Landline yesterday). Down to Tilpa and there’s Kallara Station, Justin and Julie are open for business and no end to see. On down to our little town here at Wilcannia, we can offer you a choice of 2 motels, 2 caravan parks, and all the trimmings. Your next stop is with Greg and Lilly at Neila Gaari Station half way to Menindee, it’s an overnight must. Poke on down to Menindee and when you’ve seen all that, next stop is Barbara at Bindara Station. There’s no end to it is there, on to Pooncarie and there’s a couple of weeks gone before you know it.

A sneak preview of June, we have the Louth Field Day on the 11th. June, (long weekend). And the “Sport Aircraft Fly in” at Wentworth also in June, ‘cept you will have to check with those lovely ladies at the Wentworth Visitors Centre for a date there.

Anyway, sort yourselves out and have a great couple of weeks and I’ll catch up with you then. Take care and be very careful on dirt roads if it’s wet.  Cheers, Bill Elliott. WCTA.
