Hay Ag. And Pastoral Expo, Fort courage Fishing Comp, St Patrick’s Races, and more

Hello everyone,

Few things starting to happen with March upon us, and Easter creeping up as well. Remember how I used to warn you all of going on dirt roads in the wet! Not likely is it?

Bit on next weekend, we have the “Hay Ag. And Pastoral Expo” next Friday and Saturday, with dinner and auction on the Saturday night.

Also on next Saturday is the “Fort courage Fishing Comp” at Wentworth, prizes to be won, always something happening in Wentworth. And, in Broken Hill there’s the Community Markets Saturday..

After that we have a “flagship event” in the Silver City with the St Patrick’s Races on the next weekend, the 17th. That’s a full weekend that you’ll need a week to get over!

We seem to skip then through to Easter. You’ll have to be in about 3 places at once over Easter. See there’s the “Packsaddle Gymkhana and Bikekhana” on the 31st. and 1st. Always a big event at Packsaddle. Then you could be at Eldee Stn. for the “Eldee ARB 4WD Adventure, if you’re into 4Wheel driving. But wait! There’s more, you can be part of a rally to save the Darling in Wilcannia on the Easter weekend as well, flyer attached.

If you are confused about all those happenings then just head to Bourke for Easter. They have more going on up there than you can poke a stick at. Including a Race meeting.

For a pre-Easter wander, why not toodle along to the Menindee Church Fete, 28th. it’s on.

Do you plan ahead? Well jot these down, Wentworth Show, 25/26th. August. And Mildura Country Music Festival, 28th. Sept to 7th. Oct. Thanks to our Wentworth girls.

Anyway, that’s a start, see how you go and we’ll catch up again next week.

Cheers for now,   Bill Elliott. Wilcannia Community Tourism Association.
