The Regional Zone 5 Showgirl Competition finals were held on Sat night at Mayfield Garden. This was a great event and was acknowledged by the Sydney Royal Showgirl President as the best regional event he has ever attended, credit and thanks to Glenys Newstead and Cheryl Burt and their support team for showcasing Oberon. The standard of the competition was high and I offer my congratulations to Oberon’s own Dominica Koudrin who presented very very well.

From the fifteen regional finalists Maisie Morrow from Merriwa and Isabel Hawken from Rydal were chosen by the judges to go through to the final round at the Royal Easter Show representing the zone 5 region. Well done to all the young women who represented their communities in this competition,  local shows are often the traditional lifeblood of rural towns with the Showgirl Competition an integral part of them. With young women such as I saw on Saturday evening I have every confidence our future is in good hands.
