Campdraft returns to Proserpine
THE Whitsunday Campdraft returns to Proserpine Showgrounds this Friday night in what’s expected to be a weekend of horse sports fun.
With plenty of junior horse sports scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, the annual event will be hosted by the Whitsunday Branch Australian Stock Horse Society.
Festivities start on Friday night (August 8) with a Jackpot Barrel race at 6pm.
The event is fully catered with free camping and will require about 900 head of cattle over the two days.
Saturday’s events will include a Shannon Brothers memorial open draft, Sandyglen Stockhorses ash draft run, Dowdens Pumping and Water Treatment junior draft and the Splash Pools maiden draft and finals.
Tipped to be a highlight of the weekend is the fancy dress bareback cut-out on Saturday night.
Sunday will be another jampacked day of drafts and finals as well as another cut-out competition run by Coffeelicious where cut-out winners have a chance to win the cutout trophy.
Competitors in the Whitsunday Campdraft will be travelling from Rockhampton, Townsville and inland Moranbah. For information and to find a full list of Campdraft 2014 program of events visit Tropical North Queensland Events Calender website at www.tnqcalendar.com.au/ events/event_detail/2354.
