Scary scare­crows

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

MUN­DUB­BERA Com­mu­nity De­vel­op­ment As­so­ci­a­tion held a scare­crow com­pe­ti­tion again this year and ex­panded the com­pe­ti­tion to Eidsvold.

The aim of the com­pe­ti­tion is to en­cour­age com­mu­nity mem­bers to en­gage in bring­ing some light-hearted fun into the com­mu­ni­ties and brighten the towns. 3

The com­pe­ti­tion at­tracted more than a dozen en­tries, re­flect­ing in­ter­est­ing themes rang­ing from the quite gen­tle themes to the ab­so­lutely scary, sure to make any crow think twice be­fore en­ter­ing the vicin­ity.

The win­ning en­try in Mun­dub­bera this year is the cre­ation by the Sams Fam­ily of Le­ich­hardt St, fol­lowed into sec­ond place by by the Blue Care en­try out­side of the Respite Cen­tre in Le­ich­hardt, closely fol­lowed by a zom­bie fig­ure at Bal­shaw’s Mitre 10 who con­tin­ues to scare after dark.

The di­ver­sity of the themes re­flect the cre­ativ­ity of the en­trants and made judg­ing dif­fi­cult.

The Eidsvold Scare­crow com­ple­tion was won by Hugh Reiser, with the cre­ation at Golden Spur St, Eidsvold.

Due to the in­ter­est in the com­pe­ti­tion and the di­ver­sity of the en­trants, the As­so­ci­a­tion may ex­pand the num­ber of cat­e­gories for next year’s com­pe­ti­tion.

Thank you to ev­ery­one who par­tic­i­pated in the spirit of the com­pe­ti­tion. Com­mu­nity mem­bers are en­cour­aged to be­gin plan­ning their cre­ation for next year’s event.
