Mount Gambier Spring Show

When the Mount Gambier Show Committee ask me to manage the publicity for their 153rd event on October 25-26, I came up with a series of articles highlighting some of the real characters of this country institution.

bird-blog1I tracked down some terrific people like Ken Scott, who has been showing poultry for more than 70 years. “It’s very competitive, but realistically, once the bird is in the pen, it’s up to them – you can’t do anymore than that,” he says. 

Ken-Scott-Rhode-IslandI also profiled a pyrotechnician, a horticulture champion, a third generation showman, and a teacher who runs an enormously popular Ag Learning Centre – there are so many stories to tell, and I’m looking forward to being involved again next year.
