Clash un­for­tu­nate

Central and North Burnett Times - - VOICE OF THE BURNETT -

OUR an­nual Mulgildie rodeo had to be can­celled this year, as another or­gan­i­sa­tion ad­ver­tised an event on the same day.

Peo­ple must re­alise it is in ev­ery­one’s in­ter­est to let the pub­lic know early when an event is on a cer­tain date.

Maybe a date reg­is­ter at the coun­cil of­fice or li­brary could be a sug­ges­tion, whether it be golf, fish­ing, bowls or any­thing else.

Rodeos take an enor­mous amount of time and plan­ning, and as an events or­gan­iser, when I was told another event was on I was dev­as­tated, even though their pro­ceeds may go to a wor­thy cause.

Our ad­ver­tise­ment costs still had to be paid, and stock own­ers, band, spon­sors, work­ers etc all had to be no­ti­fied, all be­cause of a date clash.

Our loss is also a loss for rodeo en­thu­si­asts.
