Campdrafters converge on Allora

JUST a quick reminder that the Allora Campdraft is on today and tomorrow at the showgrounds.

The action starts at 6am both days and, with a maximum entry field of 750 competitors, there will be plenty of quality drafting to see in all categories.

Entry is free for spectators.

So there is no excuse for not getting along to see our region’s best campdrafters doing their stuff.

 

Allora exhibitors

Next weekend is the Warwick Show and, as usual, there will be some great entries from Allora exhibitors. It runs over three days from April 9-11.

 

Look to the skies

April is also Global Astronomy Month, so let’s hope the skies clear a bit. We are particularly blessed with dark skies in our neck of the woods, with very little in the way of light pollution.

Mid-month will provide the best viewing, as there will be no moon visible. The new moon occurs fully on April 14.

The planets Jupiter, Uranus, Mercury and Venus will all be visible within a few degrees of the dark moon during different nights of that week.

They all make excellent binocular viewing, except for Uranus, which requires a telescope.
