South Burnett CTC - Working For Our Community
Cooyar Campdraft
The first day of the two-day Cooyar Campdraft will be held at the Cooyar Showgrounds in Rangemore Road, Cooyar from 6:00am this morning until late in the afternoon. This year's campdraft is being run in conjunction with the 2020 Cooyar Show (the main public day is tomorrow), and the Show's judges will be hard at work examining pavilion entries for most of the day. Today's campdrafting events will focus on a $1000 Maiden Draft and heats of an $1800 Novice Draft (the finals of this draft will be held tomorrow). Entry to the campdraft is 100% free for spectators today, but tomorrow you'll need to stump up for Show tickets if you want to see who wins the finals. There'll also be a bar and canteen running tonight, and there's plenty of campsites available in the Showgrounds if you want to stay over. Everyone is welcome!
Cooyar Show
The first day of this year's Cooyar Show will be held at the Cooyar Showgrounds in Rangemore Road from early this morning (when the Cooyar Campdraft kicks off - see entry above) through until early tonight. While campdrafting will be today's main focus, judges will be busy assessing pavilion entries all day and at 6:00pm, this year's Young Judges and Paraders competition will run under lights in the main show ring. Admission to today's Cooyar Show is free - the main public day is tomorrow - and everyone is welcome!
Friday Afternoon Scroungers - Nanango
The Nanango Bowls Club in Henry Street will be holding their regular Friday Afternoon Scroungers matches at 4:00pm today. A $5 match fee applies and new players are very welcome. More details from the club: (07) 4163-3363

Beef & Burger Night - Kingaroy
Huskys Burgers outside SupaIGA in Avoca Street, Kingaroy will be holding a Beer and Burger Night until 8:30pm this evening. Guests planning a night on the town can buy their beer at takeaway prices from the bottle shop located diagonally opposite, then bring them over to Husky's for a sit-down burger dinner.
