Big numbers at Stanthorpe campdraft
IT WAS a busy weekend for the Stanthorpe Campdraft committee members and their helpers as they organised 800 first round runs involving 400 horses, more than 200 riders and more than 1000 head of cattle.
Stanthorpe Campdraft secretary Paula Boatfield said the Friday night teams draft at the Showgrounds was entertaining as teams of three riders representing their home town, moved a group of three head of cattle out of the camp and around a course.
The multidraw raffle on Saturday night was well supported with donors helping the committee amass a pool of 50 prizes.
The signature Mother's Day Mum's Run featured 31 riders taking advantage of the free run offered as a thank you to the mums for giving up their Mother's Day.
"A highlight of our draft this year was the high number of junior and juvenile riders, almost double that of last year.
"This showcases how the sport of campdrafting can be a true family activity that all riders of varying abilities can enjoy,” Mrs Boatfield said.
In an interesting twist of fortunes, Jess Sammon won the Open draft with Tim Rohan second, and then they switched and Tim Rohan won the Novice draft with Jess Sammon placing second.
Mrs Boatfield thanked cattle transporters Ian Rogers, Tony Rogers, Alan Southern and Miles Benn.
"They gave up their weekend to help with the cattle transporting duties and a big thank you must go to our cattle donors who are willing to loan us the cattle we need for this event.
"Feedback from the weekend that the cattle were particularly good and well suited to their respective drafts,” she said.
