The organising Committee for the forthcoming 2019 World Shorthorn Conference, under the direction of Lawrie Willett, met recently in order to commence constructing a draft itinerary. By no means locked away in the Conference content, the applicable dates will span 16 days, commencing on the 24th of September in Adelaide and culminating on the 9th of October in Sydney. It is believed that the conference should have approximately 70% cattle content and 30% tourist activity. The Conference Delegates will leave Adelaide and travel through Victoria arriving at the Royal Melbourne Show on the morning of Sunday the 29th of September where they shall watch the judging of the Shorthorn Family classes. From Victoria the conference heads north into NSW, during which time the Conference proper shall be held, with the Official World Conference ceasing in Sydney PM on the 9th of October.
There will be an “Add On” program after this time for those Delegates wishing to take part in 4 days of organised touring in Tasmania. We trust this opportunity will be taken up by many of our overseas visitors.
There is much to do prior to September 2019 . Also to deliver a successful Conference, a great deal of assistance is required. Anyone who would like to offer their services prior to or throughout the conference would be well received. Likewise if you have any comments, ideas or suggestions, these too would be most welcome. Please direct your interest to the Federal Secretary, Dawn Morris (0419 317 990) in the first instance.
The Organising committee will update you once again as decisions and future plans are locked away.
