Hopes it will be­come an­nual event

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

A BIT of rain on Sun­day didn’t stop the Gayn­dah Rodeo.

The crowd pulled their hats a lit­tle lower, put their coats on and con­tin­ued to watch the day’s ac­tion.

The Aus­tralian Pro­fes­sional Rodeo As­so­ci­a­tion event fea­tured a full pro­gram with steer wrestling, team rop­ing, barrel races, rope and tie and, of course, the bull rid­ing.

Gayn­dah Show So­ci­ety pres­i­dent Cam Polzin said the rodeo was a suc­cess and, de­spite the rain, ev­ery­one stayed to see the events.

“The ac­tion was re­ally qual­ity, a cou­ple of guys hit the ground pretty hard,” Polzin said.

The Gayn­dah Rodeo didn’t run last year but hope­fully, af­ter this year’s re­sponse, the tra­di­tion will con­tinue an­nu­ally.

Brian King pro­vided the bulls from Mun­dub­bera, Terry Halls pro­vided horses and Shane Kenny of Des­tiny Downs pro­vided all the small stock.
