Jesse Glover set to dive in at the Shine shield.

As the region prepares for the return of the Shine Shield, to be held in January of next year, Boorowa has rejoined the competition, after a decade long break. The competition was founded by Boorowa, alongside Binalong and Yass, in 1966, and it allows teams from towns and villages across the region to compete for the Shine Shield, donated by the late Buster Shine, a farmer from Binalong.

Harden and Jugiong joined the competition after its inception, and it has continued to serve as a friendly carnival, that allows young swimmers to improve on their abilities. The carnival will be held at Boorowa, on Saturday, January 6, with races commencing from 6pm onwards. Race entries are not required until the night, with no payment required. Harden’s swimming club is busily preparing for the coming competition, with the kids eagerly preparing, with hopes of claiming the shield.

“The kids have been training really hard at swimming club, and many of those will represent Harden in the Shine Shield,” said Sarah Bunt, Harden’s swimming club organiser. Swimmers Prepare For Shine Shield
