Almaden Bush Races

Posted on 15 March, 2011 at 21:54
G'day!
 
I hope you’ve all had a fantastic week.
 
Almaden Bush Races
 
My week has been full to the brim of womanly chores, teaching my little girl how to blow her nose like an elephant as she has had a terrible cold (and now she has lovingly given it to me,oh joy!), writing, interviews and blogging, but it’s fun and I love the exhilaration of it all, even though at times I’m almost asleep on my feet with exhaustion!
Just over 10 weeks until the release of Rosalee Station (but whose counting...LOL!) and I can’t stand still I’m that excited. I find at times I’m wriggling more than my 2 ½ year old as I think about seeing Rosalee Station on the shelves!
 
My book launch has finally been decided on and it’s the perfect spot!
 
August 5th, 6th and 7th
At the Almaden Bush Races
 
I'll have a stand at the event, amongst the dust, bulls and galloping horses, so drop by and say G'day if you're there. I'd love to meet you. There's even a mini-rodeo this year so pull on your boots and slap on your country hat, there's some fun to be had!
 
 
I have some fantastic mates that are pulling together to help me out on the day, thanks Kirsty and Megan, what better mates could a girl ask for! Between them they have gathered up a bundle of items to help dress up the stand including a mini-marquee, bales of hay, 44 galloon drums, saddles and the list goes on.
 
I reckon the weekend is going to be one to remember so hopefully you're all there to join in on the down-to-earth country entertainment.
 
 
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK IS FOR ALL YOU BUSY MUMS AND DADS
“Insanity is hereditary-you get it from your children!”
 
Bless the little whipper snappers, we do love ém!
 
Until next week, keep dreaming and laughing!
Mandy :-)

Hi Helene, that would be lovely to meet you! I think it's the perfect place as it suits my genre and I also love events in the bush so that's a plus too!

Hi Mandy, Could you tell me is there plent of camping space at the races or rodeo grounds in Almaden, that is apart from the caravan park. I've never been up there but would love to be there and enjoy the country atmosphere.

Hi Dennis,

I'm not too sure where and when it is on this year. Keep your eye on the local papers...that would be your best bet for finding out more information. Wish I could have helped more. :)

AS for camping there is plenty or room to throw down a swag or two! The local pub has heaps of accommodation that has just been built. Best bet to find out about any infromation about the up coming events in Almaden (the wheel burrow race include) is to give Ron a call at the Railway hotel a call on 0740 948 307 :) hope I helped!
