Committee under 35 - Jack Trewick

Jack Trewick 

 

Age:18

Role: Parking Assistant Chairman  

Year joined? 2017

Full-time job?  I work on the family farm (Cramlington Park)

Why did you join the Committee?

The field days is a huge part of my family, with my grandfather being one of the founding committee members and my father following in his footsteps. I felt like it was a natural progression to join in the family tradition. And I was out here all the time, so thought I might as well.  

 

 

What is your favourite part of the Field Days?

 Getting to check out all the latest machinery and seeing the culture of our small community putting on this event and watching how it is all ran.

  

 

Role at the Field Days?

I help in assisting the coordinator at the west side parking, and helping out the volunteers but honestly, I just make sure people park in the right spot! Otherwise, it would be mayhem out there. I also eat pies over the three days.

 

How do you enjoy spending your spare time? 

I like socialising and drinking beer, to be honest. But also enjoy playing footy and water skiing and wake boarding over the summer.

 

Why do you think it is important to get young people to join the committee?

So, this organisation can continue going for a while longer, as everyone is getting older and they need to train the younger generation up and also help do the things they cant. It also works on your people skills and dealing with different situations you wouldn’t normally experience.

  

 

Fact about Jack

I actually have never missed a field days in my whole life. On September 28th in 2000 it was a wet year and my dad (Darren Trewick) was setting up for the field days and putting up signs when his truck got bogged and he got a phone call from my mum who said he had to take her to the hospital now! Dads truck was not going anywhere, so he had to borrow a ute to get her to the hospital.4 days later mum brought me out in the pram to my first Elmore Field Days and I have attended everyone since.
