Miss Showgirl Quest entrants impress at formal event
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.
