The big day!

I know you shouldn’t write in capitals but it was a BIG DAY AT TOOGOOM CCC!! Shame you didn’t make it. It was a fantastic day.

We had made door gifts for 120 people and after that let people in for $4. Then when we ran out of morning tea (the ladies used the sausage sizzle bread to make extra sandwiches) and the numbers to about 265 (luckily we always over cater the cakes and savories) we let them in for $3 then after all the door prizes were gone we let them in for $2 for a cup of tea/coffee and the show and gave up counting. It was amazing!!! When we were sitting around having a beer after we cleaned up we said we should have made people book but it was probably good they didn’t as we would have 1. panicked 2. stopped taking bookings. As it was the ladies just cut up paper and made more tickets and did lots of creative things to keep things going. It was a day for thinking on your feet.
