North East Tourist News - - MERRIJIG -

MER­RI­JIG’S first ever Bar­rel Rac­ing Se­ries came closer to fruition re­cently, when Latoya Wards in­vited all those in­ter­ested in help­ing out to put up their hands.

Held at McCor­mack Park, the same venue the Se­ries will use, res­i­dents, com­peti­tors and vol­un­teers were all en­cour­aged so that prepa­ra­tion can be­gin to get the first event un­der way.

Re­cent news that the Chiltern Bar­rels and Buckles Se­ries will not run in 2016 boosted hopes that the Mer­ri­jig Se­ries could po­ten­tially ben­e­fit, with many com­peti­tors look­ing for some­where to run their horses.

At this stage, the first round of the se­ries is due to be held on Septem­ber 24.

The event will be or­gan­ised by cur­rent Aus­tralian Rodeo Queen and bar­rel racer, Latoya Wards.
