The annual Caragabal Campoven Cookoff is on Sunday, June 11 from 12 midday. It is everything one would expect from a wholesome country shindig: cooking, family fun, music and a great big fire, and organisers promise this year will be bigger and better than ever. Events include gumboot throwing, tug-o-war, kids’ billy boiling competitions, wood auction and raffles. There will be live music by Kerry Hodge and Matt Purcell, free camping at the sports ground and food available. Those wanting to participate in the cookoff must have their entry cooked and plated by 5.30pm for judging. Entry is a gold coin donation with all funds raised going to the Caragabal Memorial Hall. The Campoven Cookoff will be held at the Caragabal Sports Ground, Mid-Western Highway, Caragabal on Sunday June 11 from 12 midday. For further information contact Donna Pursehouse 6347 5230.
