GET­TING SHOW READY

Central and North Burnett Times - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
