Elmore was a hive of activity as around 1600 people descended on the town for the annual B and S ball.By Elaine Cooney
Almost 1600 party-goers from across Australia descended on Elmore on Saturday for the Elmore B and S Ball.
Organiser Sam Shotton said she was pleased with the overall behaviour and everybody enjoyed themselves.
During the ‘Sat on Saturday’, the car park was a hive of activity with games such as a horizontal bungee, where a case of beer could be grabbed at the end of the line, a pool filled with lubricant where wrestling matches were held and the regular wet T-shirt and tighty whitey competitions were a hot favourite.
The ball began at 8pm with live music by Rob Black, James Blundell and Brook Chivell.
It finished at 1am and the party-goers returned to their utes and tents.
Ms Shotton said the 110 volunteers and the 24 committee members put a huge effort into making the weekend enjoyable.
‘‘We served 1400 egg and bacon sandwiches for breakfast and the volunteers were up at 6am cooking them,’’ she said.
She said the volunteers patrolled the car park and offered assistance to people who needed it during the day and spent the evening cooking hot beef rolls.
Ms Shotton said the ball had not been held in such hot weather for a few years and said the pools cooled people down.
