The final day of the NWPAS is a shorter one, opening earlier at 9am but closing at 3pm.  As a result it’s also the cheapest day to attend, costing $20 for the day compared to $25 for Friday and $30 for Saturday.  Those are the adult prices.  For kids it’s $15 for Friday and Saturday, and $10 for Sunday.
The Match Play Tournament play-offs and finals take place on Sunday and we will be reporting on the results of those a little later, but as we take our last look at the show floor for this year, we decided to go up and bring you an elevated view.

The purpose of the closing ceremony is to recognise those who contributed to the success of the show, award the $5,000 scholarship and make the draws for the daily prize and the major show-long prize machine.
After three representative awards to members of the list of 106 show volunteers and details of the Beads of Courage charity which the show also helps support, the recipient of the $5,000 scholarship was announced.  Megan Taylor was not able to be present at the show, but she sent a video message of thanks to the show committee and explained how the scholarship would benefit her studies.
Then came the draw for the daily prize machine which for Sunday was an Asteroids upright.
