2017 Show Results

How pleasing it was to see such a large crowd support the 71st Huon Show.  Despite clashing with the Christmas Pageant and the Bothwell Bushfest, Show patrons turned out in force in very hot conditions to attend the 71st Huon Show.  With concern expressed in regard to the demise and falling attendance of some Agricultural Shows, the Huon Agricultural Society Inc. was pleased to see the support of Show patrons which makes the effort of producing such a large event worthwhile.

Many favourable comments were received during the day on the Show – from both Show patrons and from the machinery, food stalls and other exhibitors.  Congratulations must go to the machinery firms for their support.  This support from all stall holders and exhibitors contribute to making the Huon Show a truly agricultural experience.  One that the Show is renowned for.

David Frankcomb in his role as Ringmaster, ably controlled the arena and positioning of the entertainment.   Entertainment was well received with the Tassal marquee holding children’s entertainment including Scallywags, Puppet Show, Magician and on the arena – were the Girl Guides providing free games for any one wishing to join in, snake handling, ferrets and two giant chefs as stilt walkers – all providing free entertainment for children provided by the Show Society and entertainment sponsor, Tassal.

Day Star Duo provided relaxing music and across the arena on Stage 2, Sundown Band and two new bands – Goodfellas and Blues Underground entertained.  The Vintage Car Club, Fly Ball and Sled Dogs were all on show and were received with the dog high jump being still the biggest watched event at the Show.  The Ute Competition also provided a spectacle on the arena.  The Committee prides itself on the amount of free entertainment offered to Show patrons and this year was no exception.  With Showjumping and draught horses, the arena was the centre of attraction for the day.

Cattle Sections were well represented by Jordan River Learning, Neville Fenton and Anita Dixon  The Geard and the Direen Families exhibited in the Dairy Section. Good entries were received in the Alpaca, sheep, cavy and poultry sections.  Commercial Cattle and Sheep entries were on a par with other years.  The equestrian section ran smoothly with showjumping a highlight on the arena.  The Animal Nursery conducted by Kingborough-Huon Rural Youth was busy all day.  Good entries were received in the horticultural, handcrafts, cooking and school exhibits.

Remember – if you would like to be part of the organising Committee of this great event or think you may be able to assist in any area of the Show, please do not hesitate to contact the Society – PO Box 101, Huonville, 7109.  A number of new volunteers assisted with the Show this year and without the number of volunteers assisting the Show could not go ahead.  A big thank you is extended to these special people.

Work will now begin for 2018 and hopefully, we will continue to receive the support from our many valued sponsors – without whom this Show could not be conducted.
