Women’s trade dis­plays pop­u­lar

Central and North Burnett Times - - WHITAKER OPEN DAY -

TRADE dis­plays for men and women will once again fea­ture at this year’s Whi­taker Open Day.

Clint and Robyn Whi­taker, of Mun­dub­bera, are again en­sur­ing a va­ri­ety of trade dis­plays will be on of­fer to com­ple­ment their beef cat­tle event to be held on Au­gust 22.

“Last year we in­tro­duced a ladies’ sec­tion to our day and it went off a treat,” Mrs Whi­taker said.

“So this year we plan to en­com­pass the con­cept again and al­ready we’ve had ladies say­ing they’re com­ing.”

Open day pa­trons will not only have the women’s sec­tion on of­fer, but also there will be the usual ar­ray of ru­ral-based busi­nesses.

At­ten­dees in the past have said they en­joyed the laid­back, re­laxed at­mos­phere of the day.

The ad­van­tage of the open day is that at­ten­dees are able to have di­rect in­ter­ac­tion with the trades and reps, as op­posed to the hus­tle and bus­tle of the ma­jor field days.

The fo­cus of the or­gan­is­ers is to have some­thing for every­one.

Lead­ing an­i­mal health com­pa­nies will at­tend, along with feed com­pa­nies, ru­ral stores, steel sup­plies and car sales.

The trades help us out on the day by pro­vid­ing the lucky gate prizes drawn at the close of the day.

Toy­ota, dis­play­ing the lat­est mo­tor­ing op­tions, along with Kymco ATVs and Stihl power equip­ment.

DJ’s Steel and Con­crete will pro­vide an ar­ray of prod­ucts stocked at their Monto and Eidsvold out­lets.

Darr Creek ru­ral sup­plies will again re­turn with a range of pri­mary pro­ducer spe­cials.

Ad­vance Mo­tors, Dalby, will show their mo­tor bike, quad bike and ATV op­tions.

TOPX Eidsvold rep­re­sents another ex­cit­ing ru­ral op­tions busi­ness.

“The trades help us out on the day by pro­vid­ing the lucky gate prizes drawn at the close of the day,” Mr Whi­taker said.

“Vis­i­tors are urged to reg­is­ter at the wel­come tent.

“In do­ing so they will be as­sured en­try into the lucky gate draws.

“Pre­vi­ously we’ve had around 15 sep­a­rate draws each year so (given the free ad­mis­sion) it maybe well worth the ef­fort to at­tend.”
