THE RACE IS RUN
The Compass Cup committee regrets to announce that the Compass Cup, which has been held at the Mt Compass oval in January for the last 46 years, will not be staged after 2019.
Touted as ‘Australia’s only cow race’, the Compass Cup was run and hosted by dedicated volunteers and local community groups. This enormously successful event provided a unique opportunity for our local sporting clubs, associations and groups to raise funds for various community projects, infrastructure, equipment and activities, while encouraging and strengthening community spirit.
Over the years, the Compass Cup has brought thousands of visitors to the Fleurieu Peninsula, showcasing all the region has to offer. We have had an amazing time providing entertainment for friends and families, as well as exposing people from other cultures to our Aussie sense of humour.
We, the past and present committee members, acknowledge and thank all those who have supported the annual Compass Cup over the past 46 years, through sponsorship, by cheering on the participants and enjoying the show, by relaxing with some good food and a beer, or browsing the market stalls and farm displays.
Thank you, it has been a wild ride.
