Good morning all,


My weather forecast hasn’t  stood the test! Hope you all got your share and you didn’t get caught out on a wet road.. I’ll reserve my forecast this week.

Attended the Landcare  Forum Friday/Saturday, what a credit it was to all concerned. 2 great days of information, catching up with old friends, well done to each and everyone of you.

Moving on, you have to be either in Ivanhoe for the “Quick Shear” or up at Louth for the races next Saturday, either way you’ll enjoy it.

It’s on again in Ivanhoe the next weekend too. The 19th. sees the “Highway to Hell Challenge” from Hay to Ivanhoe. Hay, Hell, Booligal and Ivanhoe. Join in and have some fun.

You have to duck up to Cobar then the next weekend. Cobar Picnic Races on the 26th. If you can’t, then you’ll have a ball at the White Cliffs “gem Festival and Boot Sale”. You’re sure to end up staying a few days, hospitality plus up there.

If you’re around Broken Hill then check out the Tri State Safari Tours at the moment. There’s too many to cover here so drop into their office in Argent St. and they will have something to suit you.

That goes for the Mootwingie tours too. Check them out, and enjoy.

My only other advice is to travel only in daylight. Roos coming home from the Hill last night were horrific!

Anyway that will cover this month for you, there’s a heap coming up in September, lots in Bourke, thanks so much Margaret, I’ll do a “September Plan” for you next week.

Watch Elders weather site, as good as any, and have fun. Till we meet again, cheers  Bill Elliott.  WCTA.
