Good morning all,

First of all I must apologise for an error last week. The Tilpa Gymkhana is definitely on the 20th. !! So, Saturday week, not the 13th. So why not get your mind in the horse mode and head to Tilpa, great day and water in the river too.

Back to basics now, and speaking of horses, the Milparinka Gymkhana is happening next week end being the 13th. However they tell me there’s heaps of party goers arriving on Wednesday, so sounds like a big few days up at Milparinka.

Then there’s the Big Red Bash further on up at Birdsville on the 16th. to 18th. Music for everyone, and hospitality unlimited.

If you miss Tilpa on the 20th. then you may be close to Broken Hill and take in “A Touch of Ireland” at the Civic Centre on the 21st. That may be a book job to be sure.

Toodle on down to Pooncarie for their big Gun Club Shoot on the next weekend the 27th. And on down to Wentworth where there’s things happening all the time. River cruises, fishing and heaps more. Again, ask them girls at the VIC.

You need to be around Nyngan later to be part of their “Ag Expo”. It’s on the 3rd. August, and then head up to Bourke, see the old Crosley engine fired up each day and all the other great things going on in Bourke..

Our big news here is, the Wilcannia weir is definitely going ahead with first stage done and moving on. More on that next week. And the Cobb highway is getting “blacker” by the week!! Another section already started.

Drive carefully, if you know the steps to a “rain dance”, turn on the music. It’s getting really serious in most of the state. See you soon, cheers  Bill Elliott. WCTA.
