Gin Gin Show Ball

A big night of glitz and glam­our to cel­e­brate tra­di­tion

Isis Town and Country - - Kolan News -

THE pres­ti­gious an­nual Gin Gin Show Ball was in full swing last Satur­day night as the Gin Gin RSL Hall played host to the sold out event.

About 270 el­e­gantly dressed guests stepped into a won­der­land as they walked through the RSL doors and where treated to a de­li­cious three course meal pro­vided by Gin Gin Hospitality.

The flo­res­cent lights were re­placed with can­dles, as the warm glow slowly warmed the ball­room set­ting.

It was a fine din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, set with the hum­ble tones and sounds from the band, A to Z.

The band’s fault­less per­for­mance was en­joyed by the guests and or­gan­is­ers and they had the dance for rock­ing into the early hours of Sun­day morn­ing.

Show So­ci­ety pres­i­dent Judy Honor took to the stage thank­ing the com­mu­nity for sup­port­ing the show.

Mrs Honor spoke of the im­por­tance of ru­ral agri­cul­tural shows and con­tin­u­ing tra­di­tions such as the Miss Show­girl quest.

“Agri­cul­tural and farm­ing is a ma­jor part of ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties and the show brings the com­mu­nity to­gether,” she said.

The an­nual ball marks the open­ing to the show and brings the com­mu­nity to­gether to show sup­port for lo­cal farm­ing.

The Gin Gin Show is set for this week­end and or­gan­is­ers are ex­pect­ing record num­bers through the gates.

“The show will have all the usual favourites in­clud­ing new and ex­cit­ing events,” Mrs Honor said.

Also on Satur­day night, the 2016 Gin Gin Miss Show­girl was crowned.

The beau­ti­fully-dressed en­trants all took to the stage for their final ques­tions.

The grace and poise of the young ladies made it dif­fi­cult for judges as they fi­nalised their score cards.

It was a long wait for en­trants as the judges thanked this year’s en­trants in the Miss Show­girl quest be­fore an­nounc­ing Rebecca Green as the se­nior Miss Show­girl.

The 2016 Ju­nior Miss Show­girl is Kathryn Walker with ru­ral Am­bas­sador Zac McNally.

Miss Show­girl run­ner-up was Jessie Din­gle and Ju­nior Miss Show­girl run­ner-up was Tasma Gane.

The show will have all the usual favourites in­clud­ing new and ex­cit­ing events.
