White Cliffs Pot Luck Dinner, Poetry on a Plate, The Broken Heel Festival, and more

Good morning everyone,

Our son rang the other night and said “Dad have you changed the battery in your smoke alarm?” I said “why should I?” He said “you should always change it with every new Prime Minister!”

Anyway, I didn’t. I’ll wait for the next one.

You can still make the “Pot Luck Dinner” at White Cliffs on Wednesday, just take along something and it will happen. Then stay around for the Father’s Day roast lunch at the Sport’s club.

A big evening at Silverton too next Saturday, probably make a full day of it for “Arias in the Outback”, I’d book too if I were you, it will be a big night.

Down at Menindee meanwhile, there’s the Father’s Day Fishing Challenge, over the 1st. and 2nd. full weekend of Fun.

Up at Bourke, there’s the “Bourke Wharf Market Day” on next Saturday, heaps of stalls. By the way, do you know what WHARF stands for?  It’s an old English one, “WareHouse And River Facilities”.

Trivia for the day! And starting tomorrow in Bourke is “Poetry on a Plate”, goes on till the 7th. Oct.

Moving into September, we have “The Broken Heel Festival” starting on the 7th and going till the 9th. and you can take in the Broken Hill Markets on the 8th. as well. Big week end in the Silver City. And loads more to do over there of course, just check in to the Visitors Centre or duck in to the Tri State Safari  Office and you’re organised.

Moving on, try and make it up to Tibooburra for their Rodeo/Gymkhana on the 28th. Sept. And make a weekend of it. Then a fantastic Weekend at White Cliffs for the Graeme Conners  Music  spectacular on the 20th. October.

You better Print this out, you’ll never remember it all! And then have a heap of fun and as I always say, stop off at our little towns, we’d love to see you and show you what we have.

Be very careful of dirt roads please, a lot of them are very wind swept and can be very dangerous at speed.

See you soon, and take care. Cheers Bill Elliott.   WCTA.
