Beef Week gets green light for 2007

Casinos Beef Week Festival will go ahead next year despite initial doubts over the future of the towns biggest annual attraction.

The events organising committee this week decided to go ahead with the festival, due to kick off on May 21, but has flagged it could be scaled back with some events under a cloud due to rising costs.

Festival president Terry Serone said a further meeting of the committee would be held on Monday, December 4, when decisions would be made on what events would stay or go and whether the number of days would be cut back.

Some things may go but we wont work that out till then, but Beef Week is definitely going ahead and hopefully everything will work well, he said.

The festival program will be finalised in January.

The event, he said, also had a new co-ordinator, Janelle Hancock, who started work this week and has previously worked as Nimbin Show secretary.

Meanwhile, the Beef Week committee is looking for a theme for 2007, so if you have a good idea or two, contact Janelle on 6662 8181.
