Show a win­ner

Benalla Ensign - - Front Page - By Si­mon Rup­pert

De­spite some rain, and maybe the loud­est thun­der clap ever heard by hu­man ears, the 2018 Be­nalla Show was a big suc­cess.

Run­ning from Fri­day morn­ing un­til Sun­day af­ter­noon, the show brought out the best in Be­nalla with smil­ing faces and gen­uine ap­pre­ci­a­tion of all the ex­hibits, rides, food and an­i­mals on dis­play.

Fri­day had per­fect show weather, and while the skies at­tempted to dampen the mood on Satur­day it was to no avail.

In fact, dur­ing the brief down­pours the crowd con­gre­gated un­der canopies and grand­stands, and peo­ple chat­ted away to new friends and old.

Some of us used the ex­cuse that if we stood un­der the canopy of a dough­nut and cof­fee van it would have been rude not to indulge in co­pi­ous amounts of both.

Show or­gan­iser Genevieve Saun­ders said the show was fan­tas­tic de­spite the weather.

‘‘We had a re­ally week­end,’’ she said.

‘‘We had great num­bers across all the sec­tions and I think ev­ery­one had a good time.

‘‘The per­sonal high­light for me was Dave Rus­sell re­turn­ing and Cam White’s Pro BMX team.

‘‘And we were re­ally happy with the num­ber of peo­ple who braved the weather to come out and spend some time at the show.

‘‘It was more than ex­pected and we’re very thank­ful.’’ good
