WHAT’S ON

Isis Town and Country - - 2015 Childers Show -

THERE is some­thing for ev­ery­one at this year’s Childers Show.

Or­gan­is­ers have worked hard to en­able com­mu­nity mem­bers to be in­volved in some way no mat­ter what their tal­ents or tastes.

This can be well seen in the cook­ery sec­tion that has a wealth of cat­e­gories in­clud­ing open bak­ing, jams and pickles, pri­mary school stu­dents and cake dec­o­rat­ing.

But two that re­ally stand out are the Lo­ca­li­cious Chal­lenge and My Oven Rules Com­mu­nity Chal­lenge.

In keep­ing with the lo­cal and com­mu­nity feel of the show, the Lo­ca­li­cious Chal­lenge must have a home­cooked item fea­tur­ing lo­cal pro­duce.

The Oven Rules Com­mu­nity Chal­lenge al­lows lo­cal men to show­case what they’ve got as it is open to male rep­re­sen­ta­tives from lo­cal clubs, as­so­ci­a­tions and com­mu­nity groups who want to rep­re­sent their group with a plate of pump­kin scones for the show and win the ti­tle of Com­mu­nity Scone Cham­pion.

The cook­ery sec­tion al­ways sees a wealth of de­li­cious de­lights, so it will be in­ter­est­ing to see what the lo­cal gen­tle­men can add to the mix.

An­other vis­ually stunning area of the show is the pot­tery sec­tion and the va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories in­clud­ing Birds of a Feather, Pit Fired Pot­tery, Cof­fee Cups, Jugs, novice and spe­cial needs will def­i­nitely see a range of dif­fer­ent de­signs on show.

The art, photography and scrap­book­ing sec­tions are also an area not to be missed when tour­ing the show.

Whether in­volved in art, photography or scrap­book­ing, this com­pe­ti­tion is an ideal place to show­case your tal­ent.

The photography sec­tion alone has cat­e­gories for sun­rise/sun­set, land­scape and seas­cape, por­trait, pets/wildlife, flow­ers, ar­chi­tec­ture, dig­i­tally en­hanced pho­to­graph, hu­mour and macro open­ing the com­pe­ti­tion up to a wide va­ri­ety of in­ter­pre­ta­tions that will leave vis­i­tors breath­less.

Com­pe­ti­tion will also be tough in the Farm and Gar­den and Plants and Flow­ers area, an­other not to be missed.

The ring events are sure to keep vis­i­tors happy also with the show favourite wood­chop back for an­other year with com­peti­tors from through­out Queens­land com­ing to show­case their strength.

Add to that the horses and prime cat­tle, which are al­ways very in­ter­est­ing and a great rep­re­sen­ta­tion of some of the lo­cal tal­ent and qual­ity stock.

The An­nual Childers Show is al­ways a show not to be missed and in its 99th an­niver­sary year, there is no ex­cep­tion.
