FESTIVE: Patrons ignored the weather at the Show. Show pulls the crowds despite cold KAROLIN MacGREGOR A WET end to the Camp- bell Town show did little to dampen spirits at what is the country's longest run- ning agricultural show. Patrons donned coats and turned out in droves to enjoy Saturday's action- packed program despite some morning rain. On Friday, show-goers enjoyed perfect weather conditions and a full program of sheep and fleece competitions. Show publicity officer Georgie Wallace said the committee was pleased the show had been another successful event. ''I think most people that come to the show come prepared for all types of weather and it doesn't seem to worry them too much,'' she said. This year's show program included visits from two well-known tele- vision personalities Ca- triona Rowntree and Char- les Wooley. Other events held at the show included the Tas- manian Yard Dog cham- pionships, the State Shear- ing Finals and the Tasmanian Kennel Club Dog and Agility Show. While entry numbers in the wool sheep section were down, Mrs Wallace said entries in the other sections were quite good. The committee was al- ready planning big things for next year which will be the 175th show. ''We're hoping to do a bit of promotion and get some more of the younger breeders to get involved and come along,'' she said. Mrs Wallace said 175 years was a big milestone, ''so we think it's definitely worth celebrating''. For more Campbell Town Show stories and pictures, see Pages 10-12 and 32.
