Eudunda community news
Eudunda oval came alive last Sunday as the
town held its 117th annual district show.
The small committee consisting of only 15
members: Richard Schulz (President), Paul
Schutz (senior vice president), Bevan Schutz
(junior vice president), Helen Schiller, Margaret
Nietschke, Desiree Schulz, Peter Herrimann,
Natalie Scholz, Nathan Bruhn, Judy Ramsey,
Paul Schiller, Wendy Oliver, Melinda Schutz,
Kahlia Jenke and Amy Holmes, worked tirelessly
throughout the year to ensure all preparations
had been completed for another community show.
As the gates opened at 10am, the crowd began
to flow in. With the warm weather and clear sky
families grabbed the chance to watch the horses
in action, view the large entries of bikes, animals
on display, and the assorted entertainment that
was on offer in the marquee throughout the day.
With 2014 being nationally recognised and
celebrated as International Year of Family
Farming (IYFF), it was fitting to have Mr. Rob
Kerin from Primary Producers, SA officiating at
the show’s opening.
The United Nations declared IYFF to recognize
the importance of family farming in reducing
poverty and hunger and improving global food
security. They are aiming at promoting new
policies both nationally and on smaller regional
scales to reduce these conditions through smaller
sustainable agricultural production.
Following a passionate speech by Mr Kerin,
Richard Schulz, President of the Eudunda
Show Committee, thanked him for attending
the event. Other distinguished guests such as
Rowan Ramsey MP and Dan Van Holst Pellekaan
MP who were also in attendance, were thanked
With judging complete, the Show hall was
opened at 1.30pm with many excited to see if
they had received recognition for their entries,
while others were happy to see the talent of
many in the community.
This year work by the three schools and pre-
school had been relocated from the Old Scout
Hall to the side of the main Show hall. This
move proved to be a positive one, with many
commenting on the improved set up and lighting.
Once again the Speed Shear and Young
Farmers Challenge proved to be among the
popular attractions, with a mixture of both young
and old competing.
St John’s Lutheran Primary School students performed
throughout the day, including at the local ceremony singing
Advance Australia Fair. Back: Breea Schutz, Shania Vrankovic,
