It is our great pleasure to present to you the Lockhart Show of 2019.
This year we have spent a considerable amount of money on entertainment for the patrons of the Show.
1. Reptile Kingdom will entertain you with shows near the Grand Stand.
2. Hawkesbury Working Kelpie Stud will amaze you with their talents
3. Hay Ho Animal Nursery will again join us where the young and young at heart can get up close to the animals.
As well as these attractions, there will be the usual sideshow Dodgem Cars, Jumping Castle, etc. to keep the children entertained. We would like to see more sideshows at Lockhart these days but the Showmen are business people and they need patronage in order to come to a Show and make a handsome return.
Again, this year we welcome a generous co-sponsor for the Senior Showgirl Competition. Riverina Bluebell has kindly sponsored the Showgirl Competition with $500. This is in addition to the major prize, which has been sponsored by FriedliebFox McLeod.
We encourage young ladies to enter this prestigious event in order to represent the Lockhart District at the various subsequent events after the Show. The idea is for these young women to bring awareness of Mental Health issues to young people at school and beyond, and to get the message across that “there is help available”. More details of this event are listed elsewhere in the Schedule.
The Peter Schirmer Memorial Crop Competition is being staged again this year, with the Lockhart Ag Bureau as Stewards.
This is also run in conjunction with the other crop competitions, including the Field Wheat Competition of NSW, which is conducted in combination with Dept of Agriculture and ASC. Details of all these competitions are also within the 2019 Schedule.
For the past eleven years, the Lockhart Agricultural and Pastoral Society has conducted the Lockhart Truck Show. Proceeds from this event go towards sending a young person to the Sydney Royal Easter Show for two days. Unfortunately, the people chosen this year were unable to attend due to work commitments. However, we have decided to send three people attend the Wagga Wagga Show where they will be escorted throughout the Show by representatives of the Next Generation Youth.
The Show Society wishes to sincerely thank all trophy donors, sponsors and prize givers. We ask members and show attendees to show their appreciation by patronizing the business houses listed in the Schedule.
We also wish to thank the Stewards and other members of the community for their good work and commitment in order to bring to you, the citizens of Lockhart and District, your Show.
This is the ‘Shop Window of the District’ and these people put on the Show for all to see what Lockhart is and what we can produce and attain.
