Campdraft is set to bring in the crowds
THE Mundubbera Golden Stirrup Campdraft is back again this year for a weekend full of action.
Affiliated with the Australian Campdraft Association, the two-day event will take place on Saturday, March 17, and Sunday, March 18.
A representative from the Mundubbera Golden Stirrup Campdraft committee said it would be an event you shouldn't miss.
"Everyone should come along. We've got activities for the kids and it's an event where you get to see some campdraft and rodeo action,” they said.
Across the five campdrafts there will be 691 competitors.
This year the campdrafting will feature 45 top competitors in the restricted open campdraft and is set to bring out the cream of the crop.
The Mundubbera Golden Stirrup Campdraft committee thanked their cattle donors for ensuring the event can continue to run every year.
The spokesperson said thanks had to go to Milton and Madeline Hayes and family, Rodney and Megan Dingle, Joel and Emma Muirhead and family, Linc and Tracy Davies and family.
Campdrafting will take place over the Saturday and Sunday starting from 6am at the Mundubbera Showgrounds.
Running a bit differently to 2017, the event will have Mutton Busting for young children under 35 kilograms.
Mutton Busting is sheep racing and the committee thanked Boyne River Pecans for loaning the sheep.
The committee also wanted to thank the Hayes family for loaning the bullocks, with the bullock ride taking place after the Mutton Busting.
A home cooked meal will be served for $10 which will be silverside and vegetables followed by apple crumble as the dessert for $5.
A calcutta will be held on the open final draft.
A feature bull ride will conclude Saturday night, and a huge thanks went to Mat Postle for loaning the bull. A multi-draw raffle will also be held.
