Good morning all,

Great to catch up with the Tri-State girls on Friday, doing a great job. Speaking of doing a great job, we were lucky enough to attend the first Wedding Ceremony and reception (our son Jeff and his wife Kathryn!) at “Warrawong On The Darling” on Saturday. The whole afternoon and evening was an absolute credit to Scott Smith and his most capable staff. Ceremony on the river, Photos on a “beach side” on the Lagoon on dusk, and fabulous catering and music on the lawns of Warrawong. A new ideal spot for weddings in the future.

Now back to business, a bit happening this week.

Broken Hill Art Gallery has an Exhibition that has just started and is running through to the 19th. Nov. Don’t leave it too late though there’s a lot to see. Also in “The Hill” this week is Karaoke at the Palace Hotel on Wednesday night, really nice friendly venue. “Knit and Yarn” at the Library on Friday, Community Markets on Saturday, and The Picnic Train at Penrose Park on Sunday. Heaps to do in Broken Hill this week and if in doubt, call on Patrick and his staff at the Visitors Centre.

If you’re down Nyngan way, then they are having “Light the Night” on Friday night in aid of the Leukaemia Foundation, what a great cause. Duck back to Cobar then if you like as they have the “Cobar Family Muster and Gymkhana” on the next day Saturday.

If you’re in the wrong area for those, perhaps you are heading to Wentworth. It’s all happening there next weekend as well. The Fort Courage Fishing Comp. Is on next Saturday and you can finish of the weekend with a hit of golf at the Wentworth Golf Club to raise money for the Aged Care. Again, if in doubt see the lovely girls at the Visitors Centre.

Looking ahead and still in Wentworth, they have a “big Birthday Weekend” there for the Paddle Steamers Ruby and Marion on the 3rd to the 5th. Nov. I think bookings are essential, so as I said see the girls at the Wentworth VC.

They tell me there’s some rain somewhere in the State, certainly not in the Far West. But then every day is a day closer to moisture.

Hope you all have a great week, and find something you enjoy. Till we meet again,  cheers,  Bill Elliott  WCTA.
