Good morning all,

Bush fires, dust and cold weather, where are we heading. Our hearts certainly go out to those people who have lost their total possessions in the fires up north.

I won’t even try to guess what this week is likely to bring. It certainly reminds me of the ’65-’66-’67 era.

Moving on though, Broken Hill is presenting the “Broken Heel Festival” over the 13th./14th./15th., and in the middle of that (14th.) you can enjoy a day and evening out at the “Silver City Show”. You can’t beat a good old fashioned country show.

There’s a Fishing Comp. happening at Wentworth on the 21st. And the best way to enjoy that is a relaxing drive down the Darling. Start wherever you like, take in Nelia Gaari Farm stay, Menindee, drop out to Kinchega for a look. Toodle on down to the Arnold family at Bindara Farm Stay, a day or two here and there and you’re in Wentworth and more fun!

Going north of course you have the evergreen Tilpa, Kallara Farm Stay, on up to Louth, have a yarn to Cathy at the pub. Now you’re in “Trilby” country and heaps to do all the way to Bourke. Make sure you go to the “Back ‘O Bourke Gallery and see Jenny Greentree’s Art Exhibition too, it’s still going.

Lee Kernaghan will be at his ever best at the Civic Centre in the Hill too, on the 22nd. Which takes us up to the end of the month and you all head to Tibooburra for their big Gymkhana etc. on the 4th. to the 6th. October. A big weekend.

Hope you all have a great week and always find a kind word for a passer by, things are getting a bit tough in the bush. Cheers for now, Bill Elliott. WCTA.
