It’s Show Time

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

With only a week to go, the Flinders Island Show is fast approaching!

A few things to remember when preparing and for the day of the annual show.

1. Have all entries ready to go. Nobody likes a late entry and there is a chance you won’t be able to enter at all.

2. Do your best! You might not win on the day but participation is everything!

3. Show your community spirit. If you have a moment to watch an event, cheer everyone on!

4. Behave, Behave, Behave! Nobody wants to see you drink to excess and make a fool of yourself! (Remember, it’s a very small place).

5. Enjoy the day! It only happens once a year!

We look forward to seeing you all there!

Flinders Island Quick Shear

Friday, December 13th, 2013

The Flinders Island Quick Shear and Quick throw comp Friday night 7th December was a great opportunity to see local cockies and pro shearers in action. The Flinders Island Showgrounds came alive with music from DJ Misty and duo Holly and Sean as the shearers battled it out to claim the top honour. Local bloke Grant Green was unbeatable in a time of 28 secs, in the final showdown against his cousin Shaun Graham. The Iron man comp proved a crowd pleaser as teams of four worked together to shear a sheep, eat a meat pie with sauce, munch down a weetbix and skull a can, the NGS crew were victorious with an impressive weetbix eating technique no one could beat. All in all a fun night out, bring on next years comp.

Thanks to the Klug Girls, Rigby Shearing, NGS shearing crews and Mackarna Park for the cross breed lambs and DJ Misty, MC Grub and Holly and Sean.
