Wild West
By Geoff Hodgkinson, Co-Editor

August 21, 2007: Cowboys and Indians came to Town on Saturday to have fun at the annual Island Party organised as a fund-raiser by the Carnival Committee. A magnificent totem pole (carved in the dead of night using a chain saw!) was at the entrance and assorted games and music took place over the 6 hours or so until midnight. The Rodeo Bull was popular (pictured), and the Duck Race benefitted from the fast-flowing Lew though the number of punters was down due to Okehampton Show - a major sales opportunity - having been cancelled. We hear that things kept happening through the night but can't say more at this time. More pictures here.
