from entertainment, to great displays of the machinery exhibitors, and to the other extreme, the many stall holders in the markets, and of course all that comes in between. Should you still be on the grounds at 5.00pm on the Saturday you can witness an action-packed Rodeo.

The season just passed had the potential to be one of the very best,

even though grain prices were dismal, what might have been very good yields, was turned to average or below by the many frost events that were

experienced. Conversely the wool and meat markets have been very strong and production levels good, there will certainly be interest in both merino and terminal sires this coming season.

Co-operative Bulk Handling went through a process of self-examination

and found that two thirds of its members were in favour of a non- distributing co-operative. One thing that is beyond doubt is that should C.B.H. have been corporatized it would have been cherry ripe for a takeover by a foreign owned multinational company. ln companies such as these the shareholders take precedence, which means that profits as well as the grain would be exported.

Finally, l wish all exhibitors a pleasant and beneficial Make Smoking

History Woolorama and we welcome patrons from far and wide to come along and enjoy the experience.
