There are 60 days until 2021 Show Week and once again we are all feeling the effects of the COVID outbreak, restrictions and potential lock downs.

With this in mind the committee will be meeting fortnightly to keep ahead of the ever-changing situation and current Public Health orders.

The Schedule for this year's even is coming together and it should be available on the ASC Eugowra Show Website before August.

This year we are planning on running the following official Agricultural Societies Council competitions:

  • Rich Fruit Cake
  • Patchwork Item
  • Lawn Mower Racing
  • Young Judges competition
  • Rural Ambassador
  • Standing Crop Competition
  • Eugowra Showgirl

If anyone is interested in any of these competitions please contact myself or any committee member so we can put you in touch with the relevant stewards.

In 2021 we are planning to take part in the inaugural Central West Showjumping Series involving Eugowra, Canowindra and Cowra Show Societies.

Competitors' points will accumulate across five days of events and the overall winner will be awarded at the Cowra Spring Show Jumping Festival on 17th October 2021.

Entries for this are available on www.globalentriesonline.com and will open on 1st August 2021.

Contact myself or the Show Jumping Steward for further information on this.

We are still looking for a community organisation to supply catering for morning and afternoon tea and lunch for the Saturday.

If your community group would like to apply for the catering on Saturday 18th please contact the Show Executive.

The next general meeting will be held on Monday 26th July at 7.30pm at the Showground.
