Showgirls compete for Allora title

TWO high-flying women are competing for this year’s Allora Showgirl title.

ALANA Frizzell is the first of our Allora Showgirl entrants for 2011. She will be 19 when the showgirl judging starts on January 29.

Alana lives in Warwick, but attended the Allora State School where she was elected school captain in 2007.

She is in the third year of her graphic design apprenticeship with Creed and Lang Commercial Printers in Warwick.

In 2008 Alana won the Clifton-based Lone Eagle Flying School Scholarship.

She is still studying for her pilot’s licence, as flying remains one of her primary interests.

However, her time in the air has been reduced due to her apprenticeship commitments at Creed and Lang.

Our second entrant is Sophie Denne, originally from Shorncliffe in Brisbane.

She is 20 years old and went to school in Allora for Years 9 and 10 and then attended Warwick State High School for Years 11 and 12.

Sophie works at the Allora Foodworks and is gaining customer service experience, with a view to undertaking flight attendant training. Sophie was the 2008 Southern Downs Regional Council young ambassador for Allora/Warwick, and she loves to paint portraits, landscapes and abstracts in acrylic and mixed media.

The women will be at the showgirl judging ceremony at the Railway Hotel from about 2pm Saturday.

Still with the show, there will be a couple of new events this year.

Riverina Warwick has generously sponsored a Guess the Weight of the Steer competition with first , second and third prizes, and the petrol heads among us will have a chance to show their stuff in the new Ute Barrel Racing event.

Show details, entry forms and schedules can be downloaded from the society website.
