Show entries impress

WHEN the stewards are smiling you can be guaranteed that the entries are amazing, which was exactly the consensus down at the Warwick Showgrounds after the pavilion categories were judged yesterday.

First-time photography judge from Duggan's Camera Centre, Noelene Luck, said it was fabulous to see all the amazing entries on show.

"There is a very high standard in the photography entries," she said.

"I found it very hard to judge and wasn't prepared for that."

Pottery steward Sue Creed said she was also impressed with her entry numbers which were up on last year.

"I had a large variety of high quality entries across the open and school categories," she said. Everyone in woodwork excelled themselves said judge Frank Wiesner.

"For a small town like Warwick the level of work is exceptional," he said.

Co-judge Bruce Weier said he has judged here before and this is some of the best work he has seen.

Despite entries being down due to the wet and wind numbers the horticulture section had about 200 flowers, plants and vegetables on show.

"Despite this year's slightly emptier displays the quality of what was entered was still of a high level," steward Robyn Monaghan said.

Painting and drawing steward Lyn Brown said entries in her section also received a good wrap from judges with several receiving high praise.
