Broken Hill's Agfair, Denman's The Wine and Food Fair, and more

Good morning all,

Travelling again I’m afraid, the beauty of technology. For those interested, there’s hardly a blade of green feed from Adelaide to Newcastle to Bendigo. As bad as I’ve seen it.

On with our events though. As I said last week, one of Broken Hill’s flagship events is Agfair next Friday and Saturday, wonderful 2 days of exhibition. Then duck out to Silverton for a relaxing wind down on Sunday. If you’re further down towards the ‘inside country’ then be sure to get to the Cobar Show, also on the 4/5th. and very entertaining.

Now again as I said last week, much further down in ‘the inside country’ is a big event at Denman, it’s “The Wine and Food Fair”. They get thousands there each year. Or you can have a flutter on a horse or two at the Muswellbrook Races, also on the 4th. May.

Move on to the 12th. and you need to be in Wentworth. Both the “Mother’s Day cent Sale” and the “Fort Courage Fishing Comp” are both on the same day. If you can stick around the river town, then there’s a “Cuppa” for the Sunraysia Cancer Research, on the 24th. again at Wentworth.

Let’s head up to Bourke now, and the “Outback Show” has started it’s season again in Bourke. It runs for an hour every day at 11 AM ‘cept Mondays, so catch up with that, then head down river to Louth for their Field Day on the 9th. June, and on to Wilcannia for our big “Field and Fun Day on the 10th. (Sunday of the long weekend).

That will get you all through for some good planning, and hope to see you somewhere in the travels.

Hope you all found an Anzac Service to attend last Wednesday, we had some travellers at our Wilcannia service, it was great.

Till next week when I will definitely be at home, me thinks, take care and again, say hi to a stranger, they nearly always make a good friend.

Cheers,  Bill Elliott.   WCTA.
