An update from our President (May 2021 )
The 2021 Gatton Show is fast approaching, and we will have all our schedules up on the website very soon. As we have had to address some issues due to COVID, we will still be running all Sections but please make sure you read each schedule carefully to comply and understand how the sections will be running this year. The set up in the Pavilions and in the animal areas will be different so as to comply with the COVID Rules.
One of the major changes is in the Horse area, we will still be having the Local Campdraft on the Friday morning and the Show Jumping on the afternoon of Thursday, all day Friday and Saturday but we only will be having the Stock Horses in the Horse rings on the Saturday. The Australian Stock Horse Society is Proudly Celebrating 50 Years and the West Moreton Australian Stock Horse Assoc are holding a Feature Show at this year’s Gatton Show.
Up in the Cattle area the Dairy Section will have its main judging day on Wednesday 14 July and the Young Judges and Paraders on the Thursday 15th July in the morning. This is to allow for a clean down before the Beef Cattle come in on Friday 16 July.
When you come to the showground for the Show this year you will see some changes which we have been able to make with the help of grants. The major one was an upgrade of Electrical works in the carpark area where the Food vans will be situated and some lighting and power boxes at the northern end of the grounds. This funding was given by a Federal Government Ag Show Infrastructure Grant and LVRC support. Some of this grant is also being used to upgrade the area in front of the Grandstand.
Funding from the Community Gambling Grant Fund has been used in the Wood Chop area and up in the Cattle area (tie up rails on top of the bollards in the judging rings and the new gates and fencing up at the loading ramp). Also, we will be putting some rainwater tanks on the Equestrian Centre.
The QR Check-in Qld code will be up at the gates and you will need to sign in when you attend the Show.
If you can’t download the Section, you are after please contact the Show Office on 54622577and we will be able to help.
So please look at entering something in one of the Sections in this year’s Show and come along and enjoy yourself and especially on Saturday evening when we will again be putting on a great night of entertainment.
Federal Government Ag Show Grant progress
The Electrical upgrade has been finished and will be used to make the 2021 Show a much safer event and much easier for our site holders. The rest of the funding which is to be used to upgrade in front of the Office and Function area has been held up due to availability of providers and materials. This work should be completed by the end of September.
