Ashford show keeps building on new events

Melissa said this year’s event is building on last year’s and going even further.

“The campdraft is back and we’ve got a very generous sponsor this year, who has provided us with a heap of cattle,” she said.

“We’ve got the ring events as well, for all the horses, and the Severn River Sprint is back, so hopefully we’ll draw a good bunch of women and blokes who can sprint to take out the cash prize.”

Melissa said she was confident the weather would be fine for the show, and any rain would hold off until afterwards.

“Entry is $7 per vehicle, with up to eight people in the vehicle, and then it is gold coin donation after that, and that is for the whole day,” she said.

“We’ve changed a couple of events. Instead of the rodeo, we now have a bull ride, which will have some new bulls in the ring.

“There’ll also be a cooking demonstration from local chef Haydon McDonald.”

Melissa said the pillow fight was for the kids.

“It’s lst man standing. The kids love it. We were looking at taking it out, but we got plenty of replies to say ‘Please don’t, we want it back’, so it’s back by popular demand.”

Melissa said the society was in the process of working on the shearing pavilion.

“The Severn River Shears is back again, so thank you to all the sponsors who have come on board to help do that.”

Melissa thanked each and every one of the sponsors who will make this year’s Ashford Show the big success it always is.
