Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Front Page -

Af­ter bad weather washed out the Yarra­wonga Rodeo last year, the weather gods were on the lo­cals side this year with great crowds en­joy­ing the en­ter­tain­ment and ac­tion on of­fer.

A sta­ple on the Yarra­wonga Mul­wala cal­en­dar, the an­nual event, which was held at the Yarra­wonga Show Grounds last Fri­day, has be­come a firm favourite with lo­cal fam­i­lies and vis­i­tors to the area and was well re­ceived with many lo­cals and trav­el­ling par­tic­i­pants tak­ing part.

“The Rodeo went re­ally well and this year it was a bit warm, much dif­fer­ent to last year,” event or­gan­iser Jan Parker said.

“Num­bers were up on last year and we had a great crowd.”

The pres­ti­gious John Collins Me­mo­rial Sad­dle Bronc Buckle was won by Queens­lan­der Cameron Web­ster.

Co-event or­gan­iser Brett Ryan said it was great to see the lo­cal com­mu­nity get be­hind the event year in and year out.

“We’d love to thank our spon­sors for all their help and the com­mu­nity, with­out lo­cal sup­port we wouldn’t be able to have the event,” Brett said.
