Secretary Colin Ince said the weather was great and the gate takings were up on last year.

“While the official monetary figure hasn’t been tallied yet, this would have to be one of our best years for a long time,” Mr Ince said.

“Last year was our worst weather wise and the show in 2000 was cancelled because of rain.

“We’ve had a few good years, but I think this one has been the best for quite a while.

“We have been receiving some great comments which is good to hear.”

Mr Ince said the committee is keen and everyone works together.

“Some shows are struggling but we have been encouraging young people to get involved.

“The average age [of people] on the committee is 45 and we are getting between 20 to 25 at meetings.

“I know some committees are lucky to get half that.

“We have a good bunch of members at the moment and I think that is reflected in the quality of the show.”

The demolition derby was popular, with the large crowd enjoying the action.

“We had a mini rodeo event and also fireworks after the derby,” Mr Ince said.

“This was popular with young families at the show with many staying right to the end for the band which played until midnight.

“The show has a good online presence and this was reflected in the photo category.

“It was a very popular section and we had entries from Hornsby and even as far north as Macksville.

“We are in the process of putting up the results and photos from the show which keeps the interest going.”
