Morongla Show opened its gates this month for the 100th time .
In the show’s centenary year, the committee is excited to bring back some of the traditional events from days gone by.
A sheaf-tossing competition – men’s, women’s and children’s categories – was contested, paying homage to the early years of manual cereal crop harvest, where bound sheaves were stood in stooks and then tossed onto carts.
The competition is all about how high you can toss your sheaf.
In the pavilion, the saucer decorating competition was brought back to life, where saucers were decorated with fresh flowers and other flora to create a detailed arrangement.
2019 Regional Woman of the Year, Dr Louise Baker, opened the show, notching up a century of rural good times, celebrating agriculture.
