Show aims to at­tract young­sters

Isis Town and Country - - News -

IN ITS 106-year his­tory the Gin Gin Show has con­tin­ued to evolve and 2015 is no dif­fer­ent.

Gin Gin Show So­ci­ety pres­i­dent Judy Honor said the group was brac­ing for a big week.

“We are start­ing to or­gan­ise things for stall hold­ers and get­ting ready for the rush on Fri­day.”

Mrs Honor said the so­ci­ety was fo­cused on at­tract­ing more youth to this week­end’s two-day show.

“Last year our so­ci­ety did a sur­vey with the schools in our area ask­ing if the stu­dents ex­hib­ited or even at­tended the show,” she said.

“We had about 630 re­sponses and found few stu­dents en­tered in­di­vid­ual events but took part in school-based dis­plays.

“This year we have a school-based com­pe­ti­tion for the young chil­dren through to high school free of charge to en­ter.

Other forms of en­ter­tain­ment in­clude laser skir­mish, Viv’s Farm­yard, Mal the Ma­gi­cian and LJ’s Bikes plus much more.

“One of the new events is the ute muster,” Mrs Honor said.

“It’s a pro­gres­sive thing where the win­ner of this can go to the re­gional judg­ing at Mt Perry in July.

“The win­ner from there goes to Bris­bane in Au­gust.”
