Macksville Show a success

THE dust has only just settled but already planning is under way for the centenary of the Macksville Show.

The secretary of the Nambucca River District Show Society, John Harris, said the success of last weekend’s event augured well for the centenary show in 2012.

“We’re still tallying up the receipts and the numbers, but I think it will prove to be one of our best shows for some time,” Mr Harris said.

“Our team of about 150 volunteers including the 80 members of the Women’s Auxiliary did a fantastic effort, the crowds were strong and the standard of competition was excellent.”

Mr Harris said the cattle, horse and dog sections sections were particularly.

“We had 240 dogs on the grounds and representatives from seven breeds in the beef cattle ring,” he said.

“And as always the main ring was home to some spectacular equine events. The level of competition in the showjumping and dressage was a real highlight.”
