It's crunch time for Beef Week 2008
By Janelle McLennan
THE Beef Week Committee will meet next week to determine the program for next year's festival and appoint organisers for individual events.
As such, the Beef Week executive is calling on all Beef Week Committee members to attend Monday (November 19) night's meeting at the Casino RSM Club at 7pm.
According to Beef Week co-ordinator Alex Lubanski it's imperative for the smooth running of Beef Week 2008 that the bulk of the program is finalised as soon as possible and that event committees are appointed to organise individual events.
"We want to make the 2008 Country Energy Beef Week the best ever. To do that we have to consolidate the program so we have plenty of lead time to implement the total sphere of management and organisational factors necessary to ensure the success of each event and the festival overall," he said.
Mr Lubanski said it was important that as many Beef Week members as possible turned up so a committee could be appointed to oversee the organisation of each event.
"We are looking at a similar program to past years incorporating all the major events that everyone loves about Beef Week," he said.
"We will have the fashion parade, the official opening and presentation of the Queens, as well as the Beef Week Breakfast. The Beef Week Cup races will be staged , the street parade and carnival incorporating the led steer and stud cattle competitions, the woodchops and all the other favourites such as the whip-cracking competition."
