An­nual rodeo de­liv­ers the thrills and spills

Dalby Herald - - NEWS -

ONE-tonne buck­ing bulls turned heads and kids had a crack at be­ing cow­boys at the an­nual Con­damine Bell Rodeo held at the week­end.

Hun­dreds of par­tic­i­pants and spec­ta­tors from as far away as the North­ern Ter­ri­tory and as near as just down the road de­scended on Con­damine, usual pop­u­la­tion 400, to catch all the thrills and spills in the rodeo ring.

The two-day event was ac­tion-packed with the Satur­day night bull, sad­dle and bare­back rides, as well as rope and tie, steer wrestling, un­dec­o­rat­ing, break­away, team rop­ing and plenty of fun for the ju­nior cow­boys in bull, steer and poddy rides.

Jake Mof­fatt took out this year’s sad­dle ride with a score of 70 points, with Joshua Jones top­ping the leader­board in the open bull ride with 75 points.

Mitch East­well was the cham­pion of the rope and tie in a time of 9.761 sec­onds, while Cheyene Whitwell was the queen of the bar­rel race af­ter fin­ish­ing with a time of 16.173 sec­onds.
