Miss Show­girl Quest en­trants im­press at for­mal event

Isis Town and Country - - Childers Show - By JODIE DIXON

UP­HOLD­ING a fine tra­di­tion, this year’s Miss Show­girl Quest en­trants pre­sented them­selves with poise and dig­nity on Satur­day at the Childers Miss Show­girl Din­ner.

Or­gan­iser Vader-Ann Weg­ner has been putting her mul­ti­task­ing skills to work in the past cou­ple of months as she jug­gled her uni­ver­sity study, work and the Miss Show­girl Quest.

De­spite the im­pec­ca­ble pre­sen­ta­tion of the young ladies, she said there were a cou­ple of shad­ows over the pro­ceed­ings.

“Doug Schofield has been on my mind for weeks.

“He loved the quest and en­joyed be­ing part of it and it’s strange not to see him.”

There were also fewer en­trants than ex­pected.

“The quest is a ma­jor event for the show and this year we didn’t get the en­trants we were ex­pect­ing,” Miss Weg­ner said.

The win­ner will be ex­pected to at­tend events throughout the year and rep­re­sent the com­mu­nity of Childers.

The for­mal din­ner was at the Isis Club, where guests were treated to a spec­tac­u­lar meal and en­ter­tain­ment.

En­ter­tain­ing the guests was lo­cal singer-song­writer Matthew Munro, whose voice set the mood for this year’s Miss Show­girl with some great coun­try mu­sic.

Miss Weg­ner said the quest had re­ceived great sup­port from the coun­cil and the com­mu­nity.

“I want to thank so many peo­ple for all their sup­port. Thanks to the show so­ci­ety com­mit­tee for al­low­ing me to ar­range the quest, this year’s judges and our lo­cal MP Stephen Ben­nett.

“The quest win­ner will be an­nounced at the open­ing of the show and I en­cour­age peo­ple to show sup­port to the en­trants,” she said.

The Childers Show is cel­e­brat­ing a big mile­stone and the Show­girls would like to ex­tend an in­vi­ta­tion to step back into the past and cel­e­brate 100 years of coun­try tra­di­tion.
