Kids ‘have a go’

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL SPORT - ❏ Erica Mur­ree

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.
