Boorowa Show

Fri 4th to Sat 5th March 2022

                                                         MEDIA RELEASE: BOOROWA SHOW 2021

 

It is with great regret that the Boorowa Show Society Inc had to make the decision last night to cancel the 2021 Boorowa Show in its usual format. There are some sections listed below that will be held, but no general public will be encouraged to attend.

This decision has not been made without much deliberation, as we originally decided to hold our show when such events were given the go ahead by the NSW Government in December. To date, we had planned many aspects of our show in a short time frame, with modifications and new concepts to best manage the strict regulations with which we have to comply.

Unfortunately, the difficulties of finding the large number of committed volunteers to comply with the restrictions, and their concerns if any breach were to occur, became insurmountable for our committee and the volunteers.

We make apologies to the many people who are always such positive supporters of the Boorowa Show, especially during the past weeks. We really did try, and thank you most sincerely! These wonderful people have engaged with us on social media, paid sponsorships, booked commercial sites and encouraged others to enter their livestock, produce and goods. They are locals and people from further afield. We invite you to contact the Secretary or the Treasurer (see the above details) to discuss any aspect of this committee decision, including sponsorship, if you have not already been contacted.

At the present time, the following sections will be held as part of the modified 2021 Boorowa Show. These may be subject to change at any time.

Commercial Cattle Competition         Friday, 12th February, 2021

Flock Ewe Competition                          Friday, 19th February, 2021

Championship Dog Show                      Friday, 5th March, 2021   Boorowa Showground

Alpaca Competition                  Saturday, 6th March - Sunday 7th March   Boorowa Showground

 

The President and Committee of the Boorowa Show Society Inc hope that you understand our decision, and we look forward to seeing you at our show in 2022. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need.
