the importance of the event to the region.

become an institution in the Riverland,” Mr Gower said.
“Just recognising the fact that it has been around for 29
years and that it’s important to the region, it gives recognition
to trainees and apprentices, who in a lot of cases, it
started them off on their career paths.”
