THE Noorat show is calling all competitive males this year, with the title of most successful gentleman up for grabs.
This new award is just one of the interesting additions to the homecrafts competition, with a gentleman-friendly cooking class also set to take place.
Homecraft committee president Joanne Heard said classes catered for everyone this year.
Activities galore have been organised for the annual event, to be held on Saturday, November 17.
Live snake demonstrations, musical entertainment, a puppet theatre, yard dog trials, an animal nursery and a variety of trade displays are just some of the attractions.
Show secretary Vicki Marr said the construction of a new undercover exhibition space was exciting.
“It will allow us to offer more undercover space for both trade and livestock exhibitors,” she said.
Livestock judging includes horses, beef and dairy cattle, dairy goats, poultry, budgerigars, sheep and homecrafts exhibits.
An on-farm challenge cattle competition will also be run in conjunction with the Warrnambool show.
The woodchop and beaut ute competitions are another feature of the “family fun” day.
Ms Heard said based on past entries, the junior cooking section was sure to keep the judges busy in the homecrafts pavilion.
“We have included a community group challenge section with classes from the home and the workshop,” she said.
Other sections include preserves, eggs, flowers, cooking, knitting, sewing, handicrafts, photography and creative writing.
There is also a schools’ competition featuring art, calligraphy and creative writing.
Ms Marr said show favourites Tubby the Robot and Lil Tub would return again this year.
“We are very pleased,” she said.
“Tubby will be getting out and about in the crowd throughout the day.”
