Narrabri Day 3 onto Thursday

Wednesday was spent in Narrabri City Centre ,buses are run every 10 mins from the rally site and are free !After having an excellent lunch in the Tourist Hotel Annie did general stopping while I sat outside chatting to locals.Evening in the Marquee entertainment was provided by the talented Roydan Donohue and he sang mainly ole classical Rock & Roll songs and were age appropriate for the ageing nomads.During the evening there was a very brief thunderstorm that brought some cooling rain,but ssdly lasted only short time Thursday was a great day with the main event being the very competitive Disc Bowls Knockout We have never played this in a competition and the 2 games Annie & I entered (mixed and mens) were as losers in the very first rounds !! Ah well next year maybe The competition was in full splendour as competitors from all over Australia looked great dressed in their Chapter Colours ! The meeting is a great success and yet again we have made some great friendly people.One in particular is a Maori Lady living in Queensland and her name tag is Black Bess ! No prejudices involved and she insisted that is what we call her,great personality Bess.During the interval we went over to the Cotton Stand and was shown how to grow it and make use of it,the staff were very good in answering questions and we had a great laugh ,Annie has secured seeds to plant at home.The weather is cooling own a wee bit things are just a little more bearable.We still have tonight’s entertainment to go and we are still enjoying this retirement
