The Western Star - - SPORT -

CAM­P­DRAFT: Hun­dreds of rev­ellers turned out for two ac­tion-packed days of cam­p­draft­ing at Nindigully at the week­end.

Nindigully Cam­p­draft pres­i­dent Du­gald McIntosh said the event was a re­sound­ing suc­cess.

“Nom­i­na­tions were up around the same mark where they nor­mally are, which was good to see,” McIntosh said.

He said 1050 cat­tle were do­nated by fa­ther and son Peter and Ben Hill for the 750 runs at the week­end.

“Big shout out to the spon­sors that helped make the week­end pos­si­ble,” he said.

“With­out spon­sors it’s a tough grind.

“With the drought, we’re all go­ing through tough times so we ap­pre­ci­ate them get­ting cat­tle to­gether to run a draft. And the way the com­peti­tors han­dled the cat­tle was great, too, that’s some­thing that’s al­ways re­ally good to see.” RE­SULTS: Ed­die Al­beck Me­mo­rial Open Draft: Bill Carey. Ju­nior Draft: Mitchell South­ern. Rabobank Re­stricted Open Draft: Peter Cook­son. Ju­ve­nile Draft: Jack South­ern. WFI Novice Draft: Kevin South­ern. Land­mark Maiden Draft: Shane Rollins. Queens­land Cot­ton Ladies Draft: Co­ralie Daly.
