Schools in running for money
TWEED schools stand to win good prizemoney in the school relays to be held at the 2009 Murwillumbah Show.
The relays will be held for small and large primary schools and high schools on Friday, November 6, from 9.30am in centre ring.
Prizemoney in each of three sections will be $125, $75 and $50.
It is hoped schools will join in the day especially designed for children by organising excursions. Activities include the RSPCA van, Tweed Shire Environmental Display, Heritage Centre with milking a cow, shearing sheep, whip making, billy tea and damper.
The animal nursery and dog show as well as school displays and displays of local produce and products will add to the interest for children.
Friday night's program will incorporate a free Halls Rodeo at night.
A highlight of this year's show will be the Ute and Bike Muster to be held on the Saturday.
The usual events will take place including pavilion sections, ring events, grand parade, cattle, sheep, woodchopping, poultry, sugar cane, sideshow alley and much more.
President Jenny Glasby has thanked the huge contingent of volunteers who worked throughout the Festival of Speed on Tweed.
She said the good financial result would help in procuring entertainment for the forthcoming show.
