Kids ‘have a go’
A RECORD number of nominations was received for last Saturday’s team penning at the Dallarnil Sportsground.
Dallarnil Sports Club president Max Pearce said with more kids having a go at the sport, there were 23 teams in the juvenile class.
“We have never had this many before,” he said. “At some places, costs are fairly high to compete, especially with stall costs but we don’t charge for that out here.
“It was a really good day overall but I had been worried with nominations, as Maryborough only attracted about 40 teams recently.
“I think people enjoy the country atmosphere.”
Mr Pearce said the club had a number of inquiries from groups wanting to hold events at the sportsground in the future, including a barrel racing series.
“Wewere an hour late starting the rodeo events, due to the cutting taking longer than expected,” he said. “(But) we had no major incidents in the rodeo arena.”
Mundubbera’s Brian King provided a good pen of bulls and in the open bull ride, the bulls proved superior with all riders bucked off.
Winner of the open team penning was the local team of Sal Williams, Scott Marshall and Ros Buczma.
