I write, read, travel, garden, renovate, work, drink coffee - all the usual things. My lovely partner often accompanies me, and of course my constant companions, two feisty terriers, are never far from my side. We live in and enjoy South Australia.

The 3rd annual Booborowie Hotel Lawn Mower Racing Event will be held this Saturday, April 22nd, 2017. Expect to see six events across the day, starting at 12 noon. There will be trophies for various categories. Ladies are encouraged to participate (perhaps numbers of lady mower racers have been low in past years). This is touted as a family friendly day out with plenty of laughs for everyone.

Booborowie Hotel is located on the corner of South Tce and Fifth St, Booborowie, in SA's mid-north. Booborowie is a small country town with an IGA supermarket. Find Booborowie just north off of the Goyder Highway, between Spalding and Burra.

Food and drinks available, at this licensed venue. No BYO -- this event is run by the Booborowie Hotel, so that should go without saying.

Gold coin donation at the gate, please. Also, bring a few dollars to pick up some merchandise to commemorate the event. After race entertainment will take you into the night! Make use of the available camping and stay in Booborowie!
