The boat is the first to arrive since PrimeMinister Julia Gillard announced Australiawill transport 800 boat people toMalaysia in return for accepting 4000 refugees from the country over the next four years. Freds Pass a show-stopper By MEAGAN DILLON Lily Kawai, Teah McCallum and Bertha Mills on the Cha Cha at the Freds Pass Show yesterday Misha Ruutz, 9, sang the anthem Pictures: FIONA MORRISON DRAGONFLIES were carved from wood, tea cups spun and little girls sang at Freds Pass Rural Show yesterday. Angie Polglaze of Australian Chainsaw Chix said the show was dynamic. Her friend Sara Winter flew to the NT from Upstate New York to carve a dragonfly out of a lump of wood using nothing but a chainsaw. Half the fun is guessing what she is making, Ms Winter said. Claire Coggan said the highlight was seeing daughter, Claudia, 5, get a fairy princess balloon backpack from a clown. It will take pride of place in her bedroom, she said Proud Matt McKinlai said his daughter Raleigh won first place in the junior market garden with her roselle plant. Its really excellent. Local John Lear, 76, said he was enjoying sitting down and catching up with old friends. But theres plenty of noise with those chainsaws, he said. Misha Ruutz, 9, stole the show when she sang the national anthem before the parade. She also won two first place ribbons in horse-riding contests. I like that you can see friends everywhere. Public servant Peter Venslovas was surprised at how big it was on his first visit. The Freds Pass Rural Show continues today at Freds Pass Reserve on Bees Creek Road. Social Butterflies page33
