ENTERTAINMENT GALORE AT THE 2018 CLERMONT SHOW - THE ISAAC REGION’S SHOW contributed by the Clermont Show Committee The Clermont Show Committee aren’t sure if we can fit too much more into what will be a great celebration of the past and the present at this year’s Clermont Show. It will definitely be one not to miss. We have some of the regulars back with Noah’s Thoroughbred Racing Pigs and the Petting Zoo attending, but we also have some new entertainment to light up your day. There will be the People’s Choice Car Demonstration with cars – old and new – on display. From there, the Reptile Kingdom is a definite visit. Reptile shows will be happening all day, get up close and personal, learn about native wildlife. If up-close and personal isn’t your style, discover ways you can discourage snakes from occupying your property and what to do if you see a snake. As you wander around the grounds, be sure to stop and say ‘hi’ to the Memphis Movers – Movers & Groovers. These guys will again be at our Show, adding a bit of extra colour to the day. Don’t think that because you saw ‘Rooftop Express’ at the Show in 2015 you can skip them this year. They are back with a BIGGER act for us all! Horsemanship like no other, the ‘Wild West Arena Spectacular’ will be a highlight on Tuesday night and then again Wednesday after the Grand Parade. Following the Rooftop Express on Tuesday night will be another epic display of fireworks from one of Australia’s premier pyrotechnic companies – Skylighter Fireworks. There will be bangs, there will be colour, but most of all, jaws will drop from the dazzling display that will be on offer. The loud noise won’t stop there. Be prepared to be amazed when the Aussie FMX freestyle motocross team launch themselves and their bikes into the night sky. These guys have some incredible tricks up their sleeves and all will be on display for Clermont and the Isaac Region to see.
Throughout the Show, we have high quality, homegrown entertainment for your enjoyment. Gracie Finger Face Painting will be set up on Tuesday, as well as the kids from KSD Dance on display in the Pavilion area on Wednesday. Danny McKay and Breaker Austen will be keeping the tunes flowing on Tuesday and Wednesday – you will definitely hear them and groove to them before you see them. If you haven’t yet purchased tickets for the local 80’s musical, you will definitely be buying them once you see snippets of the ‘Back to the 80’s Musical’ that will be performed at the Show. With one display at 7:15pm on Tuesday night and two through the day on Wednesday, the hard work and dedication of the musical crew and cast will leave you wanting more. Don’t despair - you will be able to see more - the Musical is in Clermont on Friday and Saturday after the Show! Does this leave you wanting it to be the 28, 29 and 30 of May already? With all this entertainment to look forward to, we can’t imagine where on earth you would rather be. Something for everyone and even a few to share with the entire family. For any further information, keep an eye on the Clermont Show Facebook page, head to www.clermontshow.com.au or email email@example.com.
PUBLIC NOTICES 1080 WILD DOG AND FERAL PIG BAITING PROGRAM 2018 Isaac Regional Council would like to advise all graziers that a second round of baiting will be conducted during the period below to provide landholders with an opportunity to undertake further control of wild dog and feral pig populations. Currently this baiting period is scheduled for the dates below:
Monday August 27 to Friday September 21 Manufactured baits are available outside of these times, orders must be made in advance and delivery is approximately three weeks from order date.

FREE GREEN MULCH TRIAL CLERMONT WASTE MANAGEMENT FACILITY Isaac Regional Council advises that residents will be able to access free green waste mulch for their gardens from the Clermont Waste Management Facility on:
The last Sunday of each month starting from Sunday April 29 between 9am to 1pm Residents will be entitled to two cubic metres of free mulch until 30 June 2018 or until the stockpiles are exhausted. The trial will assist in reducing the amount of waste going to landfill through the recycling of green waste as quality mulch. The use of mulch as a conservation tool to reduce evaporation and to hamper underlying weed growth is widely accepted. For safety purposes, the mulch will need to be loaded by a Council-operated loader and not manually by hand, so customers will require a suitable utility or trailer for collection. Any children or animals accompanying a customer collecting mulch must remain within the vehicle at all times. It is also a requirement that the load be fully secured and covered by a tarpaulin or similar before departing the site. Customers will have to show they have a suitable cover before loading commences. Customers wishing to collect free mulch will be required to accept the full terms and conditions of the green mulch trial at the Waste Management Facility Gatehouse prior to the commencement of the loading process.

! W O TED N K BOO ES LIMI SPAC
A PUMPKIN GROWER’S LAMENT contributed by Jumbo Burnett Clermont Rodeo is gone, so it’s time to move along, Though everybody tells me that it was ‘a real good night’. The horses were quite tough, but the crowd were not too rough, And all enjoyed the bull ride and to watch the clowns bullfight. B A bush sports are done and dusted, so the bullocks now get mustered, To select a few prize winners for the mighty Clermont Show, Now, that’s all right for you, but I’ve only got a few, So I think I’ll turn to pumpkins, I’m giving that a go! If you want to have a go, I’m afraid you are too slow, For you really should have planted them just after New Year’s Day, You need a lot of good manure, dig it in, be sure it’s pure, Then you’ll still need lots of luck, and add a load of lucerne hay.
Wait! I might still be a winner. There’s the Celebration Dinner On the Wednesday night for all, it’s a wrap up of the Show, Now I better get a ticket, I’ll be on a winning wicket, And I guess I’d better hurry ‘cause I’d really like to go! So I’m out here in the garden, trying to be like Andrew Barton, Though I seem to lack on rhythm, and hold very little rhyme. Clermont Show approaches quickly, though my pumpkin still looks sickly, But my doctor says it’s one way to be filling in my time. I’m still watering my pumpkin, for I must be good at something, I’ve a stubby here in one hand, and a book on ‘how to grow’, It reminds me of a story - that to take the road to glory, Well, you’ll never be a winner if you never have a go!
See, the boss is getting ‘antsy’ and I think I rather fancy That she’s getting pretty busy with the historical display. For the house is getting cluttered, and I’m feeling rather gutted, That it seems to be all old stuff, and I think I’m in the way! Then I dream about the cattle, and the years of doing battle In the Show Ring with old Fainty and the Mollers in there too, They’ll go to the Beef Dinner, everyone will be a winner. The Shanns and bloody Murphy, now I think I’m gonna spew! But I’m just a pumpkin grower, and I think I’m getting slower, And my best one’s not that heavy, why it’s enough to make you cry. They’ll be in there eating up; I think I’ve been sold a pup, For the best that I can offer is a sloppy pumpkin pie!

KID’S CLUB - MINI ATHLETES HAVE FUN contributed by Mim Kids’ Club last month was a Mini-Games theme in honour of the Commonwealth Games. We had our mini-athletes competing in games from straw javelin to paper plate discus. It was a fun night for leaders and kids alike. The kids also heard about why they were created as champions, even if they don’t achieve Commonwealth gold medals.
Kids’ Club is on again this Friday May 18, at Life Church (58 Capella St, Clermont) from 4pm-5.30pm and is open to any children from Prep to Grade 6.

ISAAC PERFORMING ARTS - BACK TO THE 80’S contributed by Isaac Performing Arts
With a full house on opening night, Friday, May 11th, and an even fuller house on its second night, Saturday, May 12, the Isaac Performing Arts production of “Back to the 80s, The Totally Awesome Musical”, has certainly started with a bang! With the crowd calling for encores and a standing ovation, the entire Isaac Performing Arts team are rapt with their reviews so far. “Fantastic Performance! Congratulations to all involved! If you didn’t go tonight, be sure not to miss it tomorrow!” and “I was smiling the whole way through, brilliant stuff!” were just a couple of the many glowing praises for the locally cast and produced show. “We had an amazing response to auditions from all three towns, Moranbah, Dysart and Clermont and from that we now have a cast of 30 and an orchestra of 14” according to director David Charteris. From Clermont we have Donna Cook, Allen Snelling, Taleesha Scotney, Petta Scotney, Leece Hogan, Theo Cook, Debbie Skinner, Cindy Ladmore, and Willow Hogan in the cast and Rebecca and Luke Allen-Ankins, Kwan Chan, Janice Wong, Michael Chan, Aki Noble and Freddy Bartusch in the orchestra.” he said.
“The schools in all three towns have been very supportive as far as rehearsal space goes. Moranbah State School, Dysart State School, Clermont State School and St Joseph’s have all offered use of their school halls free of charge. I can’t thank them enough.” Mr Charteris stated. “I am also extremely grateful to the Clermont Men’s Shed who built the set.” The production is still touring the region. With the two, very successful, Moranbah shows done, there are only four more performances left. The next shows will be in Dysart on May 25 and 26 and then the final two performances will be in Clermont on June 1 and 2. Ticket bookings can be made online at Ticketbooth and there will be door sales from 6.45pm with the shows starting at 7.30pm. Book now - you won’t want to miss it!
