Mudgee Show + Rodeo this weekend!

Roll up! Roll up! One of the region’s most iconic events is on this weekend – the annual Mudgee Show and Rodeo.

The Mudgee Show puts our region on exhibition, promoting our region’s fine produce as well as the talent of our local craftspeople, and the expertise of local animal husbandry.

This year’s jam-packed two-day event will feature everyone’s show favourites with popular rides and sideshows, reptile displays, juggling, a lumberjack show, and a busy program of ring events and colourful pavilion displays.

The rodeo will also be back for another year, after making a return to the show last year, and there will be some great prizes up for grabs including: the $1200 Iverach Volkswagen Open Bull Ride, the $1000 Bronco Ute Trays Saddle Bronc, the $1000 Tyre Man Mudgee Bareback, and the $1000 Moolarben Coal Ladies Barrel Race.

The Mudgee Show has been running since all the way back in 1846. Though there have been some few changes to the show over the years, it still remains a crowd favourite, with thousands of people heading to the show every year.

Mudgee’s Masterchefs!

We’re so proud to be part of a community that produces some of the best fresh food and wine in the country, now we can add to that the fact that we have some esteemed home cooks that have put Mudgee on the map yet again!
 
You may have read in the Mudgee Guardian on Monday that several residents of the Mudgee region have had their recipes published in The Country Show Cookbook: Home Cooking. Pitted against other show contestants, the competition would no doubt have been incredibly tough.
 
We would like to say a huge “congratulations” to Shirley Tunnicliff of Rylstone, Carolyn Cannon of Glen Alice and of course Carolyn Emeny of Mudgee who between them have 6 recipes published in the cookbook.
 
According to the Guardian article “The Country Show Cookbook: Home Cooking” cookbook was released at the Dubbo Show and copied are available here in Mudgee by contacting Carolyn on 6379 7718 or emailing info@wheelygood.com.au.
 
Proceeds from the sales of these cookbooks go to fundraising efforts for the show societies throughout New South Wales.
 
If you’re looking for some great home cooking recipes, you can’t go past something that’s been produced by locals! So for everything from hot winter soups to baked goods and barbecues, make sure you contact Carolyn for your copy today!

Who will be Miss Showgirl 2011?

The Show may not be until March, but beyond the mud of the animal stalls and the fairy floss there’s the serious (and seriously fun) business of crowning Miss Showgirl.
 
We mentioned back in July what a great experience this can be for young women in our community aged 18-25, and the business of deciding the lucky winner is well and truly underway, with the final ball set for November 13.
 
If you’ve never been before, or if you’re wondering what to expect this year, then get excited! Live music, dancing, light refreshments and of course – the sashing of Miss Showgirl 2011 are all part of what we’re sure will be a fun and friendly night.
 
If you’re interested in tickets, the ball is being run by Miss Showgirl 2010 Madeleine Hamilton. You can contact her and find out more via the event facebook page, or drop her an email.
 
We’re excited about heading out to Parklands Resort next weekend for the event and will be dressed for the occasion; will you be glamming it up for Miss Showgirl?
