Giv­ing a lit­tle some­thing back to the show

Central and North Burnett Times - - ADVERTISING FEATURE MT PERRY SHOW -

THE 2017 Mount Perry Show­girl Ni­cola McGre­gor has spent the past eight years em­brac­ing life in Mount Perry and has com­peted at the show mul­ti­ple times since ar­riv­ing in town.

“I’ve com­peted on my horses in the show for a few years now and I have done that with Mount Perry quite a lot,” Miss McGre­gor said.

“And I love go­ing to that show.

“It cre­ates such a great en­vi­ron­ment for horses to com­pete in and peo­ple to en­joy.”

Com­pet­ing for years at the show, Miss McGre­gor felt it would be fit­ting to try her hand at be­ing the show­girl.

“Be­ing the show­girl will limit my com­pet­ing on the horses but I feel the show has given me great op­por­tu­ni­ties to com­pete and now I have a chance to give a lit­tle some­thing back by rep­re­sent­ing them this year,” she said.

It was while rid­ing one of her horses that Miss McGre­gor found her­self en­ter­ing the show­girl com­pe­ti­tion.

“I was out rid­ing and this lady ap­proached me about en­ter­ing,” she said.

“And it feels re­ally good to be the show­girl.

“Hav­ing given me so much, I am happy to give some­thing back.”

Miss McGre­gor said Mount Perry and its show had so much to of­fer vis­i­tors and res­i­dents.

“I’d say def­i­nitely come, ev­ery­one knows ev­ery­one here and it’s such a nice lit­tle com­mu­nity,” she said.

“Mount Perry has so much her­itage.

“Not many peo­ple know things like Mount Perry be­ing here be­fore Bund­aberg; there is just so much about it no one knows and it’s in­ter­est­ing to find out.

“It’s go­ing to be pretty ex­cit­ing to be able to get in­volved in the show girl side of things.”
