Signs are right for showjumpers

COFFS Harbour Show Society is offering local real estate agents the opportunity to get the jump on the competition in terms of publicity.

The Society is inviting agents to sponsor a show jump at the 2010 Coffs Harbour Show on May 7, 8 and 9 and have their sign included in one of the jumps.

Showjumping is popular with spectators, so the sponsorship is expected to give agents a good run for their money, if not a clear round on each occasion.

With plenty of jumps available, the initiative might be the start of a major new competition. Property sales and showjumping have a considerable amount in common. Buying a property requires the buyer to take the bit in his or her teeth and take a leap of faith.

Many a buyer has baulked at the price of a new home but has been encouraged to saddle up and jump the financial hurdle by a stick from the family and a carrot from the Interested agents can contact Show Secretary John Sjolander on 0428-523559, email coffsshow@aim.com or call into the Show office at Coffs Harbour Showground.
