Catch a bus from Muster to Imbil show and rodeo
 
GETTING to the Mary Valley Show this year is easy for Muster goers, with a bus service running twice from the Amamoor Muster site to the Imbil Showgrounds on August 18.
 
Bec's Buses has come on line offering two services from the Amamoor site, leaving at 8am and 12 midday, to take keen rodeo fans to Imbil.
 
The return trips will leave Imbil at 4pm and 9pm.
 
The bus costs $6 return for adults, and $3 return for children under 12 years of age.
 
Inquiries to Rebecca on 5484 3789 or 0402 010310.
 
For those people wishing to drive themselves, there is plenty of parking in easy distance of the main arena, where some of the State's best rodeo action gets underway from 8am, with the exciting bull and bronc events after 1pm.
 
At this rodeo you get everything from the junior bull ride and barrel race to bucking broncs.
 
But if you want to have a casual ride, the mechanical bucking bull will be a great chance for amateurs to prove their stuff, from midday to 5pm.
 
Visit the show pavilion all day from 9am-4.30pm to see the arts and crafts displays, or catch some of the world's best woodchoppers in the annual championships.
 
Children will love side show alley, and there will be plenty of hamburgers, chips, strawberries and cream available.
 
Even better, the popular Laser Tag war game will help the kids vent some energy, and they can enjoy face painting, puppet shows, rides on the hot rods and the bungy trampoline.
 
And if you are wanting to buy at the market stalls, you can choose from hand-painted jeans, hats, cottage crafts and preserves, jewellery and ornaments.
 
Stage events include the popular local band Eight Gauge from 6pm, followed by spectacular fireworks at 7.30pm.

Axemen make their mark at Imbil show
 
SOME of the sharpest axemen in the country will make their mark at Imbil this month when they compete in the championship woodchop events at the Mary Valley Show.
 
Renowned for its tough rodeo action, the annual event is gaining a reputation for excellent prize money in the all-day woodchop, which draws some of the best competitors after they spend a week at the Brisbane Exhibition.
 
The Mary Valley Show kicks off at 8am on August 18 at the Imbil Showgrounds in the picturesque Mary Valley.
 
The maximum points rodeo kicks off at 8am, and woodchop trials are not far behind, with an expected 20 or so axemen trying their hand at the tough sport.
 
Organiser and veteran axeman Len Summers is taking this season off to recover from surgery, but said the field included some quality blokes and there was a large number of young fellows entering the sport.
 
"That is not to disregard the axemen who have been in the sport for a while - we cater well for the veteran competitors," Mr Summers said.
 
He had a total of $2300 to be shared in prize money over 12 events, including the challenging tree felling, underhand and standing classes.
 
In preparation for the woodchop, 150 blocks of wood have to be collected.  But he added that the Mary Valley Show, Rodeo and Woodchop in general had something for everyone to do.
 
The rodeo includes everything from the junior bull ride and barrel race to bucking broncs.
 
And if you want to have a casual ride, the mechanical bucking bull will be a great chance for amateurs to prove their stuff, from midday to 5pm.
 
Visit the show pavilion all day from 9am-4.30pm to see the arts and crafts displays, and children will love side show alley, where there will be plenty of hamburgers, chips, strawberries and cream available.
