ONE hun­dred and fifty com­peti­tors took part in the 13 events at the Tee­bar Re­cov­ery Rodeo on Satur­day.

It was a credit to the or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee that the event went ahead af­ter the grounds were com­pletely cov­ered by wa­ter, two me­tres in some places, fol­low­ing the Jan­uary 26 floods.

With the fenc­ing washed away, the com­mit­tee erected panels for the rodeo arena and pa­trons were asked to bring along their own chairs.

Pa­trons came out in force to sup­port the rodeo ac­tion and weren’t left dis­ap­pointed. All pro­ceeds for the event will go to­wards re­build­ing of in­fra­struc­ture.

The cam­p­draft could not take place af­ter too many cat­tle pro­duc­ers were af­fected by the floods to lend an­i­mals.


READY TO GO: Ta­mara Buczma, who fin­ished third in the bar­rels, with cousin Tea­gan Bechly be­fore they com­peted.

There was a packed arena to watch the rodeo ac­tion at Tee­bar on Satur­day.

This rider didn't make time in one of the rodeo events at Tee­bar.
