The Kimba Show is once again upon us. Since the 2014 show we have had a change of committee members. The outgoing members include Trevor Cliff (President), Jane McDonald (Secretary), Carmen Rayner, Megan Dickenson, Clarrie Hutchens, Cassie Kenchington and Sheryl Gale. All of these people have brought a great deal of commitment and enthusiasm to the Kimba show and they will be greatly missed.
With such a shift in committee members we have had many jobs to fill which has been a bit of a challenge, but it has been great to see new people wanting to become involved in the running of the show. I myself have taken on a larger role within the committee stepping up from entertainment co-ordinator to President. We have also had Kate Francis (Sponsorship), Alyce Whitwell (Sites) and Wez Schmidt (Grounds) join the committee. We look forward to the new and exciting things this group brings to the table.
We also have new convenors in Jordan Vandenbroek (Shearing), Blue Woolford (Wool), Lisa Schmidt (Horses), Samantha Shadwell (Jr Hobbies and Craft) and Anna Davidson (Quilting). I thank them all, along with other convenors for taking on these very valued roles.
This year the show does not coincide with the AFL grand final however we are still out to make it a great day out for young and old. Kids' entertainment will include the ever popular bubble soccer brought to us by Extreme Kites and Paddle of Port Lincoln. They will also be running kite making workshops throughout the day. Bouncing on Eyre, Animals Anonymous and RICE will also be in attendance throughout the day to provide entertainment for the kids.
The ever popular shearing competition will also be running throughout the day, and we are hoping to draw lots of entrants. The Kimba Art Prize, Kids Bike Race, Horses in Action with show jumping over 2 days and the Free Eyre Young Farmers Challenge are just a few of the exciting activities that will be happening on show day.
There won't be tea available at the show this year so we encourage people to head to the KIMBA Gateway Hotel for tea & watch the AFL prelim final on the big screen there. We hope to see you there!
