CELEBRATING RURAL EXCELLENCE

“Excellence is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well,” said John W Gardner.

Wagin Woolorama’s theme for 2018 is “Celebrating Rural Excellence” so we’d like to hear your stories of excellence in any rural setting.  And we’ll try to tell them in our Official Program for the Show.

They could be stories of consistently high performance, innovative application, personal triumph, training delivery, best yields, records broken, team performance, focused effort, thoughtful planning, good habits entrenched, dreams realised.

In 200 words or less, submit your stories to Woolorama’s media office for consideration. We’d like to recognise the ordinary things done extraordinarily well in your home, farm, rural business or local community. 

They could be stories of making a difference in people’s lives, conquering bad habits, overcoming obstacles, fortitude, potential realised, breaking new ground, changing opinion.

The setting could be agriculture, health, invention, machinery, domestic, education, service delivery, business, the arts, or anything that happens in a rural community.

Mario Andretti said, “Desire is the key to motivation, but it’s determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal – a commitment to excellence – that will enable you to attain the success you seek.”

Tell us what has inspired you in others (individuals, groups or organisations) because we’d like to share the good news of rural excellence, humble or grand, with our show patrons.

WOOLORAMA TRADE FAIR SITE BOOKINGS 2018

The smart ones are already on to it.  Securing their trade fair site for Wagin Woolorama 2018, that is, and a number of bookings have already been made.

The show’s Trade Fair Prospectus is now available.  It has been mailed to previous exhibitors and is available from Woolorama’s website. About 400 sites are available to commercial exhibitors.

Woolorama’s Trade Fair Co-ordinator, Helen Shalders, said “The earlier sites are secured the better for both preparation and peace of mind.”

Site applications booked and paid for by the early bird closing date, 28 November, get preferential treatment and a discounted price.

The final closing date for bookings is 16th January 2018.  Sites booked after that date attract a late fee.  Those companies don’t get the same choice about site location, nor the opportunity to get their contact details listed on Woolorama’s website or printed in the Official Program.

A favourable season in the Great Southern area of the state is likely to be reflected in satisfying harvests – a good omen for commercial exhibitors.  Wagin’s autumn show is positioned well in the calendar to suit retail interest.

Friday 9 and Saturday 10 March are the dates for Wagin Woolorama 2018.

Copies of the Prospectus are available on the Ag Society’s website www.woolorama.com.au (and go to trade fair info) or by phoning the trade fair office on 9861 2242.
