Welcome to the Jamestown Show Website
First, I would like to thank the out-going president David “Seth” Cooper for his contribution and dedication during his time as president. He has had an enormous impact on the success of the Jamestown Show, with the reinvigorated 2-day format just one of his many innovations.
The 146th Jamestown Show is proving to be a very different event as we deal with Covid-19 restrictions. I would like to thank the committee for all the effort they have put in throughout these challenging times. Decision making and planning is proving difficult at times due to the day to day changes. However, the support and dedication of the committee has been amazing.
With all the restrictions put in place by the State and Federal Government the committee has decided to continue as per normal to hold the 2020 Jamestown Show, with the full understanding that we might have some bridges to cross along the way to comply with Covid-19 restrictions and social distancing protocols.
I would like to acknowledge all our valued members, sponsors, advertisers and donors. It is due to their continued support of the Society that we can put this amazing event together each year.
The 2020 Show will continue building on the successful 2-day format. We will be show casing the diversity of our community and South Australia with this year’s theme; “make it, bake it, grow it, show it”. We have also decided to put the focus on our local businesses by having a dedicated trade/information site for them to display their products and services.
Obviously, there will be some changes to the format of the show, but we are aiming to hold a full array of events. Our program will include the Stacey Pavilion events, the Ewe Hogget, Sports Shear and Speed Shear competitions, Junior Judging, and of course the ever-popular Sunday night entertainment with the WSB Fireworks Display and plenty more. The biggest change this year will be the addition of the Northern Ag Special Selection Ram Sale. The rams will be on display in front of the Heiniger Shearer Training Centre and will be auctioned on Monday the 5th of October during the lunch break of the Sports Shear event. The sale is a welcome addition to the Northern Ag Ram of the Year competition.
Finally, I would like to thank the hard work of our Secretary, Amy Hagger, Treasurer, Stella Sparks, the executive committee, and the many volunteers who put in hours of work to make the show a success.
I hope everyone enjoys the 2020 Jamestown Show and we look forward to seeing you again next year.
