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.”

It was a race to the top for Har­ri­son Bo­gie and Hayden Hamil­ton.
