Weather no problem for Blackbutt

THE weather could have been kinder but it did not stop people heading to the Blackbutt Show on the weekend.

Blackbutt Show Society secretary Dorothy Kunde said numbers were down compared to previous years but people who braved the grey skies were treated to a great time out.

"It was quite a successful show considering the weather we had over the weekend," she said.

"The rides and sideshows were very popular and people did enjoy the cooking demonstration put on by Jason Ford."

Mrs Kunde said weather did disrupt the showjumping events but the horticultural pavilion was packed and the rodeo and wood chopping were as popular as ever.

"We were full with our poultry entries and the rodeo was very popular," she said.

"The show finished up around midnight."
