Bundaberg Four Wheel Drive Club has had a long history with Mount Perry and with this year’s 76th show run recently, we headed up to help once again by setting up for the show and volunteering to fill in where needed.
Putting out tables and chairs and helping the kitchen staff organize the food in preparation for the big event was part of the fun.
Mount Perry put on great weather for the weekend.
Show Day fun kicked off with woodchopping, horse and cattle events, dog showing, sideshow alley, camp draft and ringside entertainment that showcased all that a country show has to offer.
This year’s event had three money giveaways during the afternoon which you were able to join in by getting an entry ticket on arrival at the show.
The team from Waratah Longhorns had their cattle on display, with a competition to guess the span of the beast’s horns.
Four people nearly guessed the exact span at 1903mm, with them being 3mm short.
Our very own club member, Nev Shield, entered a multitude of items in the various pavilion categories and came away with a few wins, topping it off with the “Show Champion Cake”.
Unfortunately, the members that camped over missed out on a sample as he left with his prize winning delight, without sharing any of it.
Music and fireworks into the evening kept the crowd entertained as another great country show wrapped up.
Small country towns are struggling to get volunteers to help with their major events, so as a club we like to help where we can.
We are grateful for the support of property owners in the area that let us access the special places that our club gets to drive and have the date already pencilled in for next year.
