    It's that time of year again!!!

     

    Saturday 23rd of January the 37th Compass Cup is held.

    Including Australia's only Cow Race.

     

    Venue - Mount Compass - just follow the crowd.

     

    Details here on a web site............ http://www.compasscup.com.au/index.htm

     

    We regularly attend - a great day out.

    Very much a community/ Aussie/ no frills day out.Well worth a visit if you like that style of event:)

    Lots of fun / gentle and not so gentle humour.

     

    We normally sit up on the stands.

    Might take part in the odd event :goofy:

     

    If a few are coming we might set up some shade tents

     

     

    Might see you there :)

    Ooooh I cant wait to be in Mount Compass (hopefully will be our home village) in 2011 for the Compass Cup. Hopefully will see you all then.

    I helped out on the barbie at the Cup in 2001 when I was living and working at The blueberry Patch (just down Nangkita Rd.....the TDU went past there too) go pick yourself some blueberries and enjoy ... yum!!

    Be warned though that there is very little shade there if it is a hot day!!

     

    We went last year and had to give up before the races as the kids were burning up! The stands are very popular and small and people definitely hold on to their seats.
