GETTING SHOW READY
TEEBAR sportsground on the Biggenden-Maryborough Rd is the place to be this Saturday for all the action of the annual Teebar show, campdraft and rodeo.
Gates open at 6am while the campdraft with 300 competitors gets under way 30 minutes later.
Show president Malcolm Beresford said there had been a question mark over the campdraft going ahead.
“The committee didn’t know if there would be enough cattle with the poor seasonal conditions at the start of the year,” he said.
“Campdraft must be a popular sport as we have 50 competitors waiting.”
The increased rodeo program has already attracted 150 competitors.
Mr Beresford said Bill Urquhart, who has been announcing at Teebar since 1983, will be the voice behind the mic on Saturday.
“There will be six to seven hours of rodeo action,” he said.
Teebar Miss Showgirl Samantha Olsen and Rural Ambassador Randall Wixon will be busy presenting trophies and ribbons and selling raffle tickets.
Upstairs in the hall, entries will be accepted from 1pm-4pm tomorrow and up until 8.30am on Saturday.
There are the usual classes for flowers, cookery, fruit and vegetables, needlework, craft and photography with classes for both adults and children.
Novelty events include the best biscuit tin, shaving mug and decorating a horse shoe, covering various age groups.
There will be stalls and displays within and outside the hall as well as canteen and bar facilities plus kids rides and entertainment.
SHOW TIME: There will be plenty to keep the whole family entertained at the Teebar Show.
