Good foundation for our show
NEW groundsman Ross Mickan is preparing for the Warwick Show, which is shaping up to be a standout event with the great weather leading up to April.
“It’s been a big job with all the rain around,” Mr Mickan said.
He couldn’t keep the grounds in top shape without the help of the Warwick work camp women who he said were a fantastic help in preparation for the show.
With most of the entries for the show coming to a close this week, Warwick Show secretary Diane Coy encouraged residents to get in quick.
“Everything is shaping up fairly well, we have had some entries in and hope to get a lot more in the next few days,” Mrs Coy said.
In the Needle Work and Handcraft section pottery will be reintroduced and Mrs Coy said it would be big this year where they expect plenty of entries.
“The Val Busch Memorial Trophy will be reintroduced for the champion potter of the show,” she said.
Show chairman John Wilson said the entries each year were a “credit to those who compete” who usually battle severe droughts.
“This year we have had a good lead up to the show and everything has been expected to be in good shape,” Mr Wilson said.
He said all of the shows across the region had great events this year and this would reflect highly on what residents could expect at the 2010 Warwick Show.
