Day 2 Boonah

Up at 7 am in order to attend the First Timers full English and free breakfast.This is held for first timers only to get to know a little of what the concept is all about BUT mainly to meet new people from around Australia.We registered at the INFO office and checked out various activities held thru out the week. Annie has enrolled and attended a crochet group and having fun,I,m content taking the time to listen to the radio,practice a while on me didj.Morning tea was held and we were sat with people who have been members since the early 80s and all had great stories to tell.After lunch we went over to watch (yes really) PIG races,firstly we were entertained by a singer from the bush and he explained proceeds goes towards the Flying Doctors.Pigs are auctioned ( I thought people were ACTUALLY buying the pigs,but were paying for a bet on the race !!) It was absolutely adorable and very funny People who”bought” the pigs were entitled to call the pigs names (NO I mean name them!) The obstacle course was funny and the pigs “sniff” out an impregnated milk bowl (they are SO addicted to milk !!) the winning pig paid half the collected money to the person who won it in the auction.A couple of bushies did some whip cracking and the event was a huge success with the crowd ,the eventual winner of course is The Flying Doctors,Happy Hour is well known throughout CMCA members and we attended one where DISC BOWLS were being played (invented by the CMCA) for those interested in the infectious game look here
We won our first ever competition and I,m pleased to say I have a 100% record ! Night time went to another superb concert featuring The British Invasion in particularly the Beatles ( the band dressed as 1960s Beatles) This time I was alcohol free !! BUT the only person in a 2000 filled hall waving the English Flag !! Another fun filled day over FANTASTIC ! More on the PIG racing can be seen here
