Broken Hill Comedy Festival, Wentworth World Wide Knit, and more

Good morning all,

Hope you are all enjoying the really great travelling weather we are having. Bright sunshine, you wouldn’t be dead for quids!

Met up with a host of great people at Warrawong on the Darling last Wednesday night and had a great evening. It’s definitely true, a stranger is only a friend you haven’t yet met.

Now speaking of Warrawong, Tri state Safari’s have a heap of specials going at the moment. With trips to the Simpson Desert, Lake Eyre and many more. Call to their Argent St. office in the Hill and they will explain all.

Whilst in Broken Hill, remember the Melbourne Comedy Festival is coming to the Museums Club on the 5th. June, great night out for all.

Then the next weekend, you have the “Wentworth World Wide Knit” happening down there on the 9th. June, the Louth Field day is also on the same day the 9th. And the Ivanhoe pig Comp. is being held on the 10th. Big weekend around the far west.

If you are heading for the ‘inside country’ then try and make it to the Merriwa Farm and Safety Expo, but hurry up it’s on next Wednesday.

Back in our own little town, we have the Wilcannia Motel now under new management, and Deidre is offering free WI-FI to all patrons as well as being pet friendly, drop in and have a look. Of course if you are in a van that won’t work so you need to stop over at either Warrawong on the Darling, or Victory Caravan Park just over the bridge. Lovely people at both to look after you. Best Chinese meal you will find anywhere at our Golf Club and of course a courtesy bus from either place each night. Have a lazy morning then and try a leisurely breakfast at our renowned coffee shop, Miss Barrett’s, which, incidentally has just received it’s 2nd.”Certificate of Excellence” from Trip Advisor. How good is that!

A bit of boasting now, below is a link to one couple’s thoughts on our little town, so nice to hear good things.

Again, till next week, have fun and take time to smell the roses, you’re bound to meet a friend.  Cheers   Bill Elliott.  WCTA.
