The Deni Ute Muster is go­ing vir­tual in


Deni Play on the Plains Fes­ti­val Inc was forced to pull the pin on the famed event in July — for the first time in its 22 year his­tory — due to es­ca­lat­ing con­cerns and re­stric­tions re­lat­ing to the Coro­n­avirus pan­demic.

To fill the void the team will bring some favourite Muster ac­tiv­i­ties to ev­ery­one via its web­site on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 3.

Gen­eral man­ager Vicky Lowry said she could not let the week­end go by with­out do­ing some­thing.

‘‘We had to do some­thing for our reg­u­lar pa­trons; there was no way we would just sit back and do noth­ing,’’ she said.

‘‘About 70 per cent of our pa­trons are from Vic­to­ria and with a ma­jor­ity of them still in lock­down, we wanted to try and bring them some­thing to en­joy.

‘‘We have al­ready had an over­whelm­ing re­sponse of peo­ple who are go­ing to get in­volved.’’

The vir­tual event will in­clude a Show N Shine, Blue Sin­glet Count and Ute Count.

Those who reg­is­ter for any of the three events will be in the run­ning to win prizes through­out the day, with give­aways be­ing held ev­ery hour from 8am to 5pm.

‘‘En­try to these events are free,’’ Mrs Lowry said.

‘‘There will be 2021 tick­ets, mer­chan­dise and cash up for grabs.

‘‘We will be post­ing our Show N Shine win­ners as well as our Blue Sin­glet and Ute Count to­tals on the day.

‘‘Cat­e­gory win­ners for the Show N Shine will win $100 and the Ute of the Year win­ner will re­ceive $250, as well as a dou­ble-pass to the 2021 Ute Muster.

‘‘We also have some sur­prises that will be re­vealed closer to the date.’’

Show N Shine cat­e­gories in­clude Most Flags, Best Street Ute, Best Chicks Ute, Best Themed Ute, Best 4 x 4 Ute, Best Tradie Ute, Best BNS Ute, Best Clas­sic Ute, Best Hunt­ing Ute, Best Camp­ing Set Up, Ute Fur­thest Dis­tance from Deni and Mini Muster Mobeel.
