Finley's 2015 Showgirl, Rachael Barnes, represented Finley in The Land Sydney Royal Showgirl Zone Final in Wagga Wagga on Saturday, 13 February.
Sixteen young ladies from across the Riverina were interviewed throughout the day, and attended a luncheon, with the majority of judging taking place prior to the evening's events. During the dinner, held at the Wagga Wagga RSL Club, each entrant was presented before the audience of around 300 people, and were interviewed by Mrs Prue McCormack.
During the evening, several blocks in Wagga experienced a power outage, including the RSL Club. But this didn't put a damper on the event, and power was luckily restored before the second group of ladies were interviewed.
Catherine Worner from West Wyalong and Lucy Collingridge from Cootamundra were chosen as the two winners of Zone 7, and they will join fourteen other young ladies from across the state at the Sydney Royal Easter Show in March.
During the evening, the winners of the ASC Rich Fruit Cake Competition and ASC Woollen Garments Competition were also announced;
The Finley Show Society is very proud of Rachael. She represented Finley extremely well, and we hope she enjoyed the experience.
