With the huge rain over previous days, the Committee decided that the Ring Events would not be held, in the interests of safety. So, no horse events were held in the main arena and the School Kids missed out on the Spud Olympics.
The Show Pavilion events were of course able to be held, and the Cattle judging proceeded unhindered.
I helped out with the Cut Flower section, and I was pleased to see that many local people managed to give a good display of flowers - despite the huge rain and the winds which came at the end of the rainfall event.
Here are some of the Cut Flower winners, including some very fine Dahlias.
I have a soft spot for the kids entries
where they make up little "characters" and models
using vegetables, with some imagination and some household utensils.
The serious Vegetable exhibitors regard
the Robertson Show awards as highly prestigious.
|This Collection of Vegetables also notched up the|
award for the Most Successful Exhibitor
for the winner.
|A fitting award for the Champion Vegetable Exhibit|
|Anna Williams won with her Cucumbers|
|Very fine Rhubarb examples.|
|The Baby Vegetable award was a bit of a surprise to me|
But I am not the Judge
in the Vegetables Section.
These are just a few of the entries and awards at the Show Pavilion.
The handicraft, photographic entries,
the cakes and jams and preserves, etc
are all of very high standard.
I took some photos of the Dairy Cattle today
Milking Cows, young Heifers, etc.
But I not an expert in such matters.
Frankly I can hardly tell a good cow from another
But the Show Judges can, and that's their expertise..
