Barraba Show a great success

17th March 2023


Barraba Show president Dave Penna’s summary of this year’s Show: “It was a great Show”.

Despite clashing with a number of other local Shows, it seems the numbers through the gate were up on previous years. “The stand out events were the shearing, the Sports Shear and Wool Handling competition, and the rodeo, the Xtreme Broncs,” Dave said after the Show.

“I really want to thank our really hard working Secretary, Carmen Bennett, the Stewards, and all the other volunteers. A wonderful job; you should be very proud.”

President Dave wanted to note the loyal support received from the Showman’s Guild, who provide the sideshows and entertainment. Despite their numbers being decimated by Covid, and there being fourteen other Shows on in NSW, they were there in numbers at Barraba to entertain us.

“And finally – thank you to the NSW Police who were at our Show, making sure everyone had a good and safe time. It was great to see the Police out in public in Barraba – it was much appreciated,” Dave said. We hope they had a good time, like everyone else!
