Click go the shears at show

Euroa Gazette - - NEWS -

THE sights and the sounds of a shear­ing com­pe­ti­tion will again pre­vail un­der the More­ton Bay Figs at the Euroa Show.

It will hap­pen at the 2018 Euroa Shears Finewool Shear­ing Cham­pi­onship which will fea­ture five main events worth in ex­cess of $5000 in cash prizes and tro­phies.

Th­ese events will in­clude an open class, a se­nior class, an in­ter­me­di­ate class and the James Naughton Memo­rial Learn­ers Event.

Th­ese events are open to all shear­ers.

The Lo­cal Strong­wool event will also fea­ture again.

This event will be open to all shear­ers who have per­ma­nently resided within a 70km ra­dius of Euroa for at least the last 12 months.

The or­gan­is­ers hope to con­tinue to at­tract some of Aus­tralia’s top shear­ers to the event so that the qual­ity of shear­ing will con­tinue as it has in the past.

Euroa has long held a rep­u­ta­tion as a qual­ity shear­ing com­pe­ti­tion, at­tract­ing shear­ers from WA, Queens­land, New Zealand, Ire­land and France in the past.

A fea­ture of the Euroa Shears is that the open class win­ner receives a cham­pi­onship blazer which has proven to be a sought-af­ter prize in re­cent years.

So, on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 27, come along with your fam­ily to the Euroa Show­grounds and en­joy the many at­trac­tions that the show has to of­fer.

While you’re there, make your way to the More­ton Bay Fig Trees and watch some of Aus­tralia’s best lo­cal and in­ter­state shear­ers in ac­tion.

You won’t be dis­ap­pointed.
