The South Burnett Gem and Fossicking Club would like to take this opportunity to thank every participant who was in any way involved with this excellent gem show. A giant thank you to all the stall holders, both inside and outside, all volunteers, and of course, every visitor on both Saturday and Sunday. The range of products on sale was a credit to all those who bothered to either make them, and/or display them.
Both days were warm and sunny and one could not have wished for a better day. We thank the weather gods for looking down on us with kindness.
The Gem Club would also like to thank all sponsors, both large and small, for contributing both funds and goods, which were all very much appreciated. The 18 different luck door prizes were won on the day and the winners were certainly grinners. A special thankyou to our two major sponsors, the South Burnett Regional Council and Stanwell Corporation for their support in kind and on the day.
The venue proved to be ideal for our purpose and both inside and outside traders seemed to be happy with their location and local environment. The ground underfoot was dry and hard, especially considering how much rain has fallen in most of South East Queensland.
All in all, a most satisfactory Gem Show and the club will now be taking stock of the weekend and considering what happens in 2023.
A sincere thankyou to everyone who contributed to the South Burnett Gem Show.
