Sun shines for show
but with the entries we did have it still made for a very lovely display.”
In a pleasing upswing, Jan said sheep and chook entry numbers were up this year, with 24 new breeds of sheep on display.
“Each year the calibre of our entries just keeps getting better,” she said.
“Our wildlife display and animal nursery also got a good rap from the crowd, as did the caricature artist who impressed many with her skills.”
The day was a sizzler as the beaming summer-like sun warming the showgrounds and causing plenty of demand for snow cones and ice cream.
“We have had some interesting days with the weather over the years with the show, but on Sunday the sun really turned it on for us,” Jan said.
“We are very thankful that even though we had to postpone this year’s show until a later date due to the wet weather that we still had many come out and support us.”
Jan said the committee had received mixed feedback on the selection of rides at this year’s show.
“We had a few people say that they weren’t very impressed with the variety of show rides,” she said.
“The committee has taken these suggestions on board and we will be passing them on the Showmans Guild.
“Unfortunately we have no control over the Showmans Guild who supply the rides and with so many postponements of different shows around the region there wasn’t a big selection of rides this year so we hope that people can understand that.”
Jan said on a positive note the Show Girl and Boy competition entries were well up this year.
“The show girl and boy competition was just fantastic,” Jan said.
“Our entrants looked wonderful and we would like to congratulate our winners and thank those who were apart of the competition.
“Overall we are all very pleased and we can’t wait to get into organising the 2017 Corowa Show.”
