Tee­bar on show for all this Satur­day

Central and North Burnett Times - - WELCOME -

TEE­BAR Sports­ground will come alive this Satur­day for the an­nual show, cam­p­draft and rodeo.

With nom­i­na­tions for all the rodeo and cam­p­draft events full, pres­i­dent Mal­colm Beres­ford looks for­ward to the weather fore­caster’s pred­i­ca­tion of rain hold­ing off un­til Mon­day.

Mr Beres­ford said rain in the district at the week­end damp­ened the ground and cut the dust.

“The weather fore­caster has pre­dicted 11 to 26 de­grees so it should be a beau­ti­ful day,” he said.

“As usual the cam­p­draft is over­sub­scribed for the five events so there will be plenty of ac­tion for pa­trons to watch from early Satur­day morn­ing.

“The rodeo pro­gram has 13 events so that will fill the day in for pa­trons who flock to the grounds just to watch this sport.”

Mr Beres­ford said new sec­re­tary Sharon Bar­rett had done a won­der­ful job.

“Plus spon­sor­ship for events is up from last year,” he said.

“Out­side in the grounds, there are the usual can­teen and bar fa­cil­i­ties, live mu­sic along with Old Mac­Don­ald’s Farm an­i­mals and var­i­ous rides for the chil­dren.

“The com­mit­tee has also re­ceived record en­quiries for trade dis­plays.”

.In the hall, co-or­di­na­tor Michelle Kin­bacher has had many en­quiries from peo­ple want­ing to en­ter the var­i­ous classes, es­pe­cially the pho­tog­ra­phy.

“Around the hall there will be stalls from cus­tomised tow­els, jams and pick­les, dec­o­rated bags, women’s and chil­dren’s felt hats and Felicity Rock­e­mer’s paint­ings and cards,” she said.

Also in the hall there will be seat­ing avail­able for pa­trons to catch up for a chat and en­joy a cuppa and some­thing to eat from the cof­fee shop.

Ad­mis­sion for adults is $12, con­ces­sion $10, high school $5, pri­mary school $2, tod­dlers free and fam­ily pass (2 adults & 2 chil­dren) $30.
