Show to draw mas­sive crowd

Move to week­end im­proves at­ten­dance


WAN­DOAN Show or­gan­is­ers are hop­ing for a stand-out at­ten­dance at next week­end’s event.

The Show, pre­vi­ously held dur­ing the week, has been moved to a Fri­day–Satur­day sched­ule, which so­ci­ety pres­i­dent Richard Golden said has been an ex­cel­lent de­ci­sion.

“When we made our change from Mon­day– Tues­day back to the Fri­day– Satur­day and, with a lot of in­vig­o­ra­tion in our or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee, we dras­ti­cally in­creased our at­ten­dance,” he said.

“So we’re look­ing more now at that 1200–1500 peo­ple for the two days and we’re re­ally hope­ful that we will achieve that.”

With the rein­vig­o­ra­tion of the show, Mr Golden said he was par­tic­u­larly ex­cited to con­tinue to im­prove the grounds’ fa­cil­i­ties.

“It’s an ex­cel­lent venue and the plans that are still be­ing de­vel­oped,” he said.

“I’ve made it some­what of a mis­sion to achieve the light­ing of the arena be­fore I ride off into the sun­set.”
