Show time thrills crowd
CROWDS flocked to the Gayndah Show 100th anniversary, despite sweltering conditions.
Competitors sweated it out in the ring, competing in the horse, stud cattle and woodchopping events, while the crowd picked up throughout the day.
“For an April Saturday, it was certainly hot,” show society president Cam Polzin said. “The crowd was down during the day and they flocked in around 3 in the afternoon.
“We also had a huge night time crowd.”
Mayor Don Waugh was impressed with the attendance at the show, especially that people from around the North Burnett had travelled to Gayndah.
“It was good to see the crowd support, particularly from the towns from around the region,” Cr Waugh said.
“I would encourage everyone to attend the upcoming five shows and to support other shows when they can.” Cr Waugh said the show president and society members had put in a lot of hard work, which paid off with a great show. “I was impressed with the crowd and impressed with the trade displays on hand and the new bar area was exceptionally well-planned and catered well,” he said.
“I think having the deputy premier to open the 100th show was a great move; the showgirl competition has been excellent.
“The people who have won for their individual towns show a great future for the area.”
