Notch­ing up an­other win

THE Wowan Show Com­mit­tee would sin­cerely like to ac­knowl­edge the won­der­ful support they re­ceived for the 84th Wowan Show on Satur­day.

The Au­gust west­erly winds were a lit­tle test­ing, es­pe­cially for our ring an­nouncer and show pa­trons, and Mother Na­ture turned on the cold con­di­tions.

The show­grounds were busy on Fri­day and Satur­day with ex­hibitors, stall hold­ers etc, plenty of en­ter­tain­ment on of­fer.

It was won­der­ful to see the pavil­ions full with ex­hibits, the ring events were kept busy with lots of horses and their rid­ers, the stud cat­tle en­tries were plen­ti­ful, good ute muster en­tries, poul­try num­bers were down but over­all a great coun­try show and with­out the support from ex­hibitors, spon­sors, volunteers and com­mit­tee mem­bers this would not of been pos­si­ble.

Rockhampton Re­gional Coun­cil­lor Neil Fisher of­fi­cially opened the 2017 Wowan Show and Neil spoke about the pas­sion he has for re­gional coun­try shows.

Ty­rone did an­other ster­ling job en­ter­tain­ing the crowd through­out the whole day, the Lo­cal Vo­cals from Biloela en­ter­tained in the morn­ing, Bre­anna and her horses per­formed a Lib­erty dis­play and trick rid­ing, our mod­els did a great job mod­el­ling in the fash­ion pa­rade with clothes from Round­yard Sad­dlery, the wood chop guys did a great job with their axes in the wood chop demo and it was good to lo­cal Kev Rankin swing­ing the axe again, the bike rid­ers en­joyed the laps around the cir­cuit and “Just Us” got the crowd on their feet with their mu­sic in­clud­ing the karaoke.

I think we may have to pol­ish up on our singing.

Multi-pur­pose cen­tre

ON TUES­DAY the MPC or­gan­ised a bus trip to Goovi­gen and Biloela to cel­e­brate Se­niors Week and it was great to have a drive in our back yard.

Golden Park Re­treat hosts Rob and Maree have a won­der­ful gar­den set­ting in Goovi­gen with plenty of beau­ti­ful trees, shrubs etc with many old ve­hi­cles nes­tled among the gar­dens.

On ar­rival I spot­ted Vince Arm­strong’s old VK Mo­tors truck, what mem­o­ries.

Cal­lide Coaches bus driver Peter did a great job tak­ing the lo­cals for a drive through Ar­goon, out to the Power House, Cal­lide Dam, through a newer hous­ing es­tate etc.

Af­ter the tour­ing all en­joyed lunch at the Anzac Club in Biloela.

A won­der­ful day was held and they are now waiting for their next trip, which will be Kil­burnie Home­stead on Tues­day, Septem­ber 19.
