SA­MAN­THA Olsen is look­ing for­ward­ing to meet­ing new peo­ple and gain­ing new ex­pe­ri­ences as the 2017 Miss Tee­bar Show­girl.

“This is an hon­our,” she said.

De­spite the small size of the dis­trict Ms Olsen said the Tee­bar rodeo and cam­p­draft con­tin­ues to draw in tourists and lo­cals alike.

She en­joys camp­ing, paint­ing, read­ing and horse rid­ing and mus­ter­ing.

“In the fu­ture I would like to run my own beauty sa­lon,” she said.

“I have in­ten­tions to travel with a trip al­ready planned for Bali later in the year.

“New Zealand, Europe and Canada are also on my wish list.”

Sam has re­cently been work­ing with a per­sonal trainer and found en­joy­ment in weight train­ing.

“This had led to a real in­ter­est in healthy eat­ing and sus­tain­ing good men­tal health,” she said.

Run­ners up at the Satur­day, May 6 func­tion were Chloe Cooper and Bre­anna Hawken.

The Tee­bar Show and Sports As­so­ci­a­tion vice pres­i­dent Randall Wixon is this year’s Ru­ral Am­bas­sador.

The 23-year-old has an am­bi­tion to take over his par­ent’s beef prop­erty.

He is cur­rently a su­per­vi­sor of hard­wood plan­ta­tion main­te­nance crew.

Mr Wixon said as the Ru­ral Am­bas­sador he was pleased to rep­re­sent and ad­ver­tise the area he called home.

“I am keen to bring more at­ten­tion and spec­ta­tors to our small coun­try rodeo,” he said.

“Tee­bar needs more vol­un­teers to help on the day es­pe­cially in the kitchen and bar.”

Pres­i­dent Mal­colm Beres­ford said it had been about five years since the com­mit­tee had or­gan­ised a dance for the Miss Show­girl com­pe­ti­tion.

Plans are well in hand for the June 17 show.

The only hitch is the com­mit­tee hasn’t enough cat­tle for the cam­p­draft events.

“We have a fair per­cent­age but still need an­other 100 head,” he said.
