The Ignition Custom Engineering team will return to the Mid North region next weekend to host Ask A Gunsmith at the Jamestown Show on Sun Oct 1 and Mon Oct 2.
Head gunsmith Nik will be available to discuss project ideas or answer firearm questions for those in the Mid North and Flinders Ranges regions. We will have a selection of work and goods on display. Come on down, say G’day and grab a stubby cooler or sticker for the gun safe.
We are are also proud to sponsor the Young Farmer’s Challenge event which is a fun team competition testing the everyday skills a farmer might need. The event is open to all and we have cash prizes on offer. Click here for more information.
It will be a big weekend for Jamestown with the thoroughbreds thundering across the fields for the annual Jamestown Cup on Saturday, September 30 followed by the family friendly Jamestown Show on Sunday and Monday October 1 & 2. The quiet country town comes to live
Last year’s show was dampened slightly with widespread flooding completely closing all roads into the region only 48 hours earlier. But with the true Aussie spirit of regional SA, show society staff pressed on with a positive attitude. Sure enough the waters receded, the gates opened on time and it turned out to be a a beautiful dry and Sunny day with good attendance.
This year set to be even bigger with more competitions and events – including the Young Farmers Challenge, sponsored by Ignition Custom Engineering – the best of the region’s livestock on the display, trade stalls, prizes and raffles. TV Personality Catriona Rowntree will MC the Show Fashion Event
In addition to the action of the Young Farmers Challenge event, we are also looking forward to seeing the working dog competitions and shearing events.
