New look on show in M?bah
THE 2005 Murwillumbah Show is going for a new look this year, especially in terms of entertainment.
Following Thursday night's meeting of the Tweed River Agricultural Society board, the executive felt that it was time for a change and passed a recommendation that the entertainment format for Friday and Saturday nights be changed.
Sadly for lovers of rodeo, the show will be without the calls of "cowboy up" this year with the event being dropped.
Entry fees for ring events will remain at $2 per class for Friday and increase to $3 for Saturday.
Members will be given a discount for ring events with a new "buy five tickets and get one free" system.
The Pavilion schedule has been revised with the introduction of an interschool com- petition with good prizemoney.
A major raffle will be held with tickets at $2 each with prizes of a $1000 spending spree from The Good Guys, $500 Budds Mitre 10 spending spree and $250 fuel voucher from Neumanns Petroleum.
Many of the buildings have freshly-painted roofs and work is proceeding on improvements to the road system and toilet block.
