PRESIDENT'S ANNUAL REPORT

The 2018 show turned out to be a great success with gate takings being up on previous years and entries also being up in most sections.  None of this could happen without the tireless efforts and support of our stewards and volunteers, so we sincerely thank you all.  Our show started off with our show ball which incorporated 'Blue Jeans and Ball Gowns.'  This night was enjoyed by all with the showgirl winners presenting themselves and representing the show extremely well.  Next saw our Prime Beef dinner which was a very enjoyable night with many laughs and a well supported fundraising auction.  We would like to say a massive thank you to all of the sponsors, donors and volunteers for supporting both of these events.  Our show saw many new additions this year with author Anna Daniels attending and new attractions including the Western Districts Trials Club, Walter Whip and our new show announcer Justin Matthews.  As I walked around the show this year I felt there was a great atmosphere with everyone enjoying themselves and the attractions that we had on offer.  Once again I would like to thank those people and businesses which contribute money and trophies for our show.  After the show we hosted the Regional Finals dinner at the Anglican Church Hall.  This night was well attended and enjoyed by all.  All contestants represented their societies incredibly well.  Our show year has drawn to a close but we still have upcoming events to look forward too with our Cent Auction on Saturday and Swap Meet in November.  What a fantastic year we have had!

Thank you Jaclyn Brough
