Well here we are again, doing the show website while
the rain belts off the window, finger crossed it stops soon or a boat may be needed to get the messages.
As some of our followers will be aware 2016 is the 200th anniversary for Strathendrick Agricultural
Society, although we have only held 187 shows, 2016 will be the 188th, the missing years were due to the First and Second
Wars, Foot & Mouth, not to mention our rained off years, (no more of these PLEASE).
All ready the plans are well under way for next years show, which will
be held on Sat 28th May 2016, gates open 9am, the committee meeting have already started.
With 2016 being our 200th year we plan on having an Anniversary marque, and
are looking for items to display, society medals, old trophies, prize tickets, old rosettes, photographs etc, we are also
looking for old farm machinery and equipment that would have been used in daily farming over the last 200 years, these will
be displayed through out the show ground. We already have
a loan of 6 silver medals from His Grace the Duke of Montrose, and a framed picture from our Chairman Donald Beaton,
so please dig deep in those cupboards and lets see what we can unearth, contact for this section in Helen McAllister 07879022705
The society AGM will be held on Tuesday
17th November 2015 at 8pm in The Buchanan Arms Hotel Drymen.
The website will be updated over the coming months with show schedules, forms, etc, if you would like to see anything
on the site please let us know using the contact page.
