Brookvale Show 2013

Postby Thrillseeker08 » Mon Oct 21, 2013 8:48 pm

Hello all,

First ride report in ages AND first show I have attended since moving to NSW in June this year, I decided to head down to Brookvale Oval on the 19th of October for the local Brookvale show...very pleased how it turned out,crowds were steady and so was the weather nice and sunny.

Equipment supplied by Joylands
Body Rock,Hurricane,Round-Up,Super Slide,Cha-Cha and a few kids rides as well.

Took a ride on-board the Round-Up for first time, my goodness talk about Gravity holding you
down but not as a powerful as the Gravitron (Mitro Enterprises WA) and also Joyland's Hurricane which were both fun... I think I am getting old as I severely drooling out of my mouth of the force of gravity onto the my missus LOL.

Prices were $7 a ride of 5 rides for $30 which were value for money.

Check out the link below of my photos


Enjoy

Good review and photos, was an okay day I was there working the Hurricane so you probably would've come across me. Hot day too think it was up a little compared to last year

Thanks for the feedback, TopGunner14 i went for a ride on the hurricane around 12:30 to 2:00pm with me hanging on for dear life... :lol:, as you can imagine i had my left hand up each time it bounced up the air...

Question?
Brookvale Show, what is the history behind it? its a very small show that sure brings the locals in like myself.

I stated the history of what I know anyway, I went to Brookvale public, in the 60's (god did I just say that) we even got a show holiday, there was a trotting track around the oval as well, it held horse events inside the arena, it was a very respected and great show as was castle hill, blacktown and Hawkesbury, is probably the only one that really still portrays what those city shows were like today.

Brookie show was my first working show, worked clown joints, led ponies for shipways, rode solos chair O plane, this was the first of many, including capitals and all those other Sydney shows that I worked. I know I have said it before, but I loved the drums of Sharmens boxing tents, this was where it really all started for me, good memories and some not do good, all water under the bridge now!!!
