CAM­P­DRAFT: More than 200 com­peti­tors and 1600 head of cat­tle took to the ring at Bas­sett Park , Roma for the three-day Golden Hob­bles

❝qual­ity We had live­stock and the com­pe­ti­tion was of a very high stan­dard. — Golden Hob­bles Cam­p­draft pres­i­dent James McAu­ley

Cam­p­draft at the week­end.

Com­peti­tors came from near and far, in­clud­ing riders from cen­tral Queensland and north­ern New South Wales.

The pro­gram in­cluded thou­sands of dol­lars of prize money across a num­ber of maiden, novice, ju­ve­nile, ju­nior, open, ladies and en­cour­age­ment drafts.

Golden Hob­bles Cam­p­draft pres­i­dent James McAu­ley said the week­end was a mas­sive suc­cess.

“We had qual­ity live­stock and the com­pe­ti­tion was of a very high stan­dard,” he said.

Hay­ley Knud­sen won the ju­nior draft on Don­ald with 87 points. Shari Knud­sen won the re­stricted open on Chic’s Play­girl with 179 points. Theresa Lawrence won the ladies fi­nal on Enigma. Gavin Roberts won the open on Dusty af­ter he and Matt Durkin tied on 171 points. Sandy Ste­wart won the en­cour­age­ment draft on Clancy, with 80 points.

Cameron Lee, Wil­liam Goetsch and Jody Crozier won the bare­back cut out.

The com­mit­tee would like to thank the Maller Fam­ily and Roma Downs for do­nat­ing cat­tle, and Stir­ling Road­ways for trans­port­ing the cat­tle to and from the event. McAu­ley said the week­end would not have been pos­si­ble with­out the help and gen­eros­ity of spon­sors and the com­mit­tee.

“We re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate the Maller fam­ily and Roma Downs for do­nat­ing the cat­tle in such dry times, we couldn’t have held the cam­p­draft with­out their sup­port,” he said.
