Good morning all,

A big thanks again to my trusty secretary Fiona, she’s more interesting than me really!

Now we seem to be moving on into October with coming events. Starting with the big weekend at Tibooburra on the 4th. to 6th. (long week end). It’s their big Gymkhana week end and fun for all.

If you are out of reach of Tibooburra, then try to make it to Ivanhoe on the 5th. (Sunday). A couple of the local lads down there are organising a Vintage truck, car etc. show in the little town and you can be sure it will be a good day out, say nothing of the night! So, one or the other.

The next week end is Balranald’s turn the 11th. to the 13th.. They are having a whopper of a festival down there, called the “5 Rivers Festival”. Please check the brochure attached, and better still print it off and show everyone. Or just turn up at the visitors centre and see Kirstyn, the rest is simple!

Moving on to the 26th. you can be part of “Arias in the outback” at the Civic centre in Broken Hill, starting at 7 PM, and sponsored by the Broken Hill Council and the Silverton Pub.

However, happening on that same week end is the “Festival of the Miners Ghost”, and where else but of course, Cobar. Happening from the 25th. to 27th. again see attached.

If you’re that close to Bourke, duck up and have a look at the Back ‘O Bourke Gallery and all the other attractions they have up there.

That’s a week or 2 for you all, and by the way, if you are travelling through our little town here at Wilcannia. We regret the public toilets in the main Street are being refurbished so please duck up to the ones at the hospital, tables and park there as well. Or on the highway going out of town. Sorry for any inconvenience. 

Until we meet again, cheers, Bill Elliott.  WCTA.
