EXCITEMENT is revving with preparations well under way for the 2017 Stanhope Ute Show.
The Stanhope Ute Show will be held at the Stanhope Hotel on Saturday, September 23 and the committee has been working together to make this year’s event bigger and better than last year.
Entries are growing for all events, and whether you have a classic ute, feral, 4×4, farm, tradies or even chick’s, pre ‘90s, post 2000, most stickers, furthest travelled or loudest 4, 6 or 8 cylinders, you can enter as many events as you wish.
There will also be mower races and children’s pre-school and primary school mower/ute races on the day along with boot throwing, colouring competition and best sponge cake competition to keep the whole family entertained.
Children can make a cardboard ute and race it or enter a pram or plastic mower.
If you would like to enter your ute into this year’s show, email Mandi at [email protected] or contact the Stanhope Pub on 5857 2293 for an entry form.
Pre-booking prices of $10 for the first event and $5 for each other event entered.
Catering is available from 8am on the day with registrations still open until 2pm. All funds raised go back into the local community.
