The 2014 Competition Theme

The Wagga Winter BubbleThis is Wagga Wagga's Winter bubble (click the image for a bigger version). It's a celebration of some of the things we love about winter: the bracing cold and the snuggly warmth, the roar of winter sports, campfires under clear skies and the beauty of fog and frost. For some of us, there are things to loathe about winter, too: scraping ice from our car windscreens in the morning, cleaning muddy bootprints out of the carpet and conjuring the motivation to emerge from under the doona for our morning run.

At least one of these words, sounds, images or feelings will feature in each entry.
