In perfect autumn weather, crowds flocked to Wagin for the two days of the annual Make Smoking History Wagin Woolorama, on Friday 6 and Saturday 7 March.

An estimated 19,000 had their expectations met with high quality livestock competitions, comprehensive machinery displays, captivating live entertainment and attractions for all interests.  The markets were full to capacity and the industry displays were a credit to the corporate sector.  The latest farming toys and big machinery were on offer in a sector of the state that has been blessed with a good season.

Hundreds of Wagin people contribute a huge effort to stage the event and ensure it is a success.  Strong, vibrant communities are communities where people belong, matter and contribute.

On behalf of the Committee, president Malcolm Edward thanked everyone involved – sheep transporters, gate attenders, catwalk stabilisers, straw bale lumpers, sheep and cattle exhibitors, stewards, judges, hosts, caterers, lawn keepers, barmen, cleaners, donors, encouragers and visionaries. 

The sections of the show are run by volunteers with passion.  Entries in most sections were up on last year, the results of which are available on the Society's website - www.woolorama.com.au, and go to CompetitionsResults.  The Saturday evening rodeo proved a fitting finale to the show with about 3000 staying to see cowboys and cowgirls in action.

As has become the custom, a public meeting is held at the end of March for comment on any aspect of the event.  To be held on Tuesday, 31 March at 7pm at the Society's Boardroom on the Wagin Showgrounds, the meeting is open to anyone with compliments or complaints, comments or suggestions.  The Committee finds this to be a valuable survey of where improvements can be made.

The town of Wagin, population 1800, aims high and has the capacity to deliver with the 2015 Woolorama being another successful event to bring families, farmers and visitors together for a showcase of WA's Great Southern.
