Time for a wild ride at Mt Car­bine

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - ENTERTAINMENT -

BULL rid­ers from across the re­gion will sad­dle up at this year’s Mt Car­bine Bull and Bronc Ride Rodeo next week­end.

Rid­ers from the Table­lands, Chilla­goe, Hope Vale, Cook­town and Nor­man­ton will be grip­ping on to their seats to last eight sec­onds and reach the top score of 50.

Glen Sim­monds from Bi­boorah is sup­ply­ing the bulls which in­clude Jack­ham­mer, Over­draft and Rat­sack.

Mt Car­bine sports ground sec­re­tary Karen Waters is or­gan­is­ing the event and said she ex­pects up to 1000 peo­ple to sur­round the arena.

“The arena is small so the crowd are able to sit around the out­side and are right there to see the ac­tion,” she said.

“It is full on non-stop ac­tion so we en­cour­age lo­cal fam­i­lies from the Dou­glas re­gion to at­tend and en­joy the evening.”

The ac­tion will kick off at 5pm and run un­til 10pm at the Mt Car­bine Sports Grounds on Satur­day, Au­gust 13.

“Peo­ple are able to camp at the grounds and en­joy the bush at­mos­phere,” Ms Waters said.

“There will be lovely hot meals, a li­censed bar, jump­ing cas­tle for the kids, and live mu­sic from ’Toe Crack­ing Jack’.”

Bull rid­ers will be vy­ing for the $5000 prize money which will be re­warded at the end of the night.

Ad­mis­sion fees cost $10 per adult, $5 per stu­dent and chil­dren are free. For more in­for­ma­tion con­tact Karen Waters on 4094 8337.
