Hi all, and welcome to the 46th Sofala Show. Our volunteers have been completing maintenance tasks in readiness for this show and all looks great.

To the sponsors and those that have donated their services and time we thank you, to the committee I would like to extend my heart felt thanks for the hours it takes to put on our show.
