CAM­P­DRAFT: It was the cam­p­draft not many peo­ple thought would even­tu­ate.

The Eidsvold Show event was can­celled two years ago due to rain, but there was no stop­ping the crowd at the 2017 show, who em­braced the per­fect sunny weather.

Cam­p­draft sec­re­tary Bec Scholl said it was an ex­cel­lent line up of cat­tle.

“The day pre­sented qual­ity runs, ex­cel­lent cat­tle and all in all it was just a great day,” Scholl said.

“The num­bers were down just a lit­tle bit be­cause we ac­tu­ally clashed with an­other cam­p­draft this year.

“It was a very com­pet­i­tive field and with the cam­p­draft­ing this year it was a fan­tas­tic start for the Eidsvold Show.”

The win­ner for the open draft went to John Lin­den­mayer on 171 points, in sec­ond place Cameron Wil­son on 169 points and in third place Pete Scholl on 167 points.

The novice win­ner was Shane West­man on 170 points, fol­lowed closely by Cam Wil­son and John Lin­den­mayer on 168 points.

The maiden win­ner was Stacey Rae on 89 points, fol­lowed by Trevor Hamp­son and James Bens­ley on 88.

For the Ju­ve­nile draft the win­ner went to Ja­son Gillies, fol­lowed by Jamie Hartwig in both sec­ond and third place.

The ju­nior drafts win­ner went to Justin Knight on a score of 80 points, fol­lowed by Corby Worm­ing­ton on 79 points and Mikalah Worm­ing­ton on 76 points.

The Eidsvold cam­p­draft com­mit­tee would like to thank all its cat­tle donors, spon­sors and the whole com­mu­nity for the event.

One of the con­tes­tants, Ronald Bligh, had a fall and was taken to hospi­tal as a pre­cau­tion.

He went home the next day with no in­jury.
