If Nambucca wins it will be the biggest



IT'S countdown time for the youth of Nambucca Shire as they put the finishing touches on their Triple J One Night Stand application.

Due in Sydney on Friday, a small group of shire students will be leaving at 5am to meet the deadline.

Yesterday Nambucca High student Ella Hewgill was work- ing on a giant JJJ drum, which will contain all the documents for the mega event.

"We have a photo album with 200 pictures of the cardboard Myf (Warhurst) on 'tour' around shire sites," Ella said.

"Plus heaps of letters and poems of support."

At Nambucca Shire Council staff have been flat out pulling together all the necessary plans to prove hosting the event is possible.

"We are excited and exhausted," youth development worker Reannan Loughlin said.

"Basically everyone here has been busy working on traffic plans, emergency plans, not to mention plans for the event itself. Transport alone has been huge ? getting 20,000 people into and out of the valley . . . if we win it will be the biggest event in the history of the shire!"

She said there were already 8000 signatures from the youth of Bellingen, Coffs Harbour and Kempsey plus letters from councils from Ballina to Glou- cester. Good luck!
