President's Report 2017

Whilst the rain event during this years show was widely welcomed in the region, unfortunately it led into a slightly smaller, less than perfect event compared to previous years. Despite all the hard work of some of the stewards this year’s animal sections were a non goer.  Eventually we had to make a reluctant call to cancel these sections as water and black mud are not something that helps these animals get here let alone preform to the best of their ability.

All other sections of the show went ahead and proved to be very entertaining and were well represented with many people coming to the event to walk through the pavilions and sideshows. The entertainment went ahead as planned and although the bar seemed to be down slightly on years gone by, this was a good spot to compare the amount of rain that was received.

Again this year I would like to thank Peta Miguel for all her hard work that she does as Show Secretary.

Peta is extremely competent in championing the Wee Waa Show Society so that many of you are able to enjoy the entertainment and diverse array of food and giftware stalls that are available. The behind the scenes work that she accomplishes during the year is overwhelming and she must be congratulated

This year I would like to make a special mention of a keen and valuable member of the team and he is young import James Stephens. Jimmy has availed himself to become a great help and is willing to get his hands dirty on many an occasion during the weekend. Thanks so much Jimmy for your effort.

All stewards must be thanked for piecing the threads together this year and it was thought that we may have lost out on our income with such an event. The committee was happy with a small balance in the positive and thanks must go to the wider community for attending even with damp soles.

Thanks to everyone for all the effort that makes our show work. The committee is small in number but large in attitude when it comes to the Wee Waa Show.

Lastly thank you all for the support over the last five years, I will be taking a step back this next year, to let someone else have the helm for a while.

See you at the show if not before

Outgoing Wee Waa Show President 2013-2017
