THE Coffs Harbour Show may be over for another year, but there are still plenty of smiles to be seen at the Coffs Harbour Showground today - on the faces of the organisers.

"Everybody's tired!" an exhausted but extremely happy Coffs Harbour Show Society Vice President Karen Luke said.

"We were so grateful for the weather, we've had three years of great weather now," Ms Luke said.

That great weather is expected to be reflected when the Show Society crunches crowd numbers.

"The final results will take a few days to work out, but the numbers coming through the gates were very good," Ms Luke said.

"The Coffs Harbour community is very kind to us and they are the reason we have a show as good as we do," she said.

Ms Luke is hoping some of that community spirit can be harnessed in a drive to recruit more Show Society members.

"We need more help; it's getting physically impossible to do what we do."

Members meet once a month and they don't need to be rural or baking experts.

"I started three years ago with the showgirls. You just need to have a love for the community and the showground," Ms Luke said.
