Bullish event re­turns

Central Queensland News - - SPORT -

THE Duaringa Bullarama comes with the prom­ise of non-stop ac­tion that won’t dis­ap­point.

This Satur­day the an­nual Duaringa Bullarama is on at the Duaringa Sports Com­plex with gates open from 5pm and the ac­tion at 7pm.

One of the or­gan­is­ers, Zoe Dunne said the Duaringa Bullarama is all about giv­ing back to the com­mu­nity who sup­port the lo­cal event.

“Ev­ery­one re­ally does sup­port it… and the lo­cal com­mu­nity en­joy it,” she said.

All funds raised from the event go to the emer­gency ser­vices in Duaringa, this year be­ing the fifth that the event has been sup­port­ing the lo­cal ser­vices.

“The money we make all stays lo­cal,” Zoe said.

“It’s a lo­cal event for the lo­cal com­mu­nity.”

The ac­tion in­cludes fea­ture sec­tions, ju­nior, rookie, open bull rides and for the first time, the Bullarama is adding an­other cat­e­gory for lo­cals who are game enough to give it a go.

Zoe said the idea came about as or­gan­is­ers wanted to give the lo­cals a chance of par­tic­i­pat­ing against riders with the same amount of ex­pe­ri­ence, which in some cases, is very lit­tle.

“It’s to cre­ate more in­ter­est so if you want to

hop on a bull you can and it is not run with guys who ride ev­ery week­end,” Zoe said.

An­other first for this year is the in­tro­duc­tion of a big screen which will fea­ture ac­tion re­plays and rider’s name and in­for­ma­tion be­fore each ride.

The com­pany who are do­nat­ing the screen for the event, Big Screens Aus­tralia, have an­other rea­son for com­ing along to the Duaringa event as a bull they co-own will be in the thick of the ac­tion.

The bull, Rock the House, is well known on the PBR cir­cuit and will be fea­tur­ing in Duaringa, com­ing off a suc­cess­ful trip to Cairns in re­cent weeks.

“We have got a lot of good qual­ity bulls and good qual­ity bull riders,” Zoe said of the arena ac­tion planned for this week­end.

Zoe en­cour­aged fam­i­lies to come along to the en­ter­tain­ing night out with din­ner sorted by the Mc­Coy fam­ily and a full bar ser­vice pro­vided by the Duaringa Golf Club.

En­try is $10 per per­son and fam­i­lies are $40.
