Penning returns for 2012

SOUTHERN Downs Team Penning Inc is back and their first event for the year will be held this Sunday, March 4, at the Warwick Show Grounds.

Secretary for Southern Downs Team Penning Inc Sharon Keogh said teams from all over the district are expected to compete.

"We've already competed in Clifton this year and this is Warwick's first event," Mrs Keogh said.

"It is a competition for both opens and juniors with the top 10 teams from each going through to the finals.

"There are six buckles up for grabs. Three for the first place team in the opens and three for the first place team in the juniors."

The event starts at 7am and food and beverages will be available on the day.

Mrs Keogh is optimistic about the sport's future in the district as it continues to grow rapidly.

"The club formed last August with the minimum seven members needed and we are now at approximately 30 members and growing," she said.

"We are encouraging everyone to come and watch, enjoy themselves and find out what the sport is about."

Last minute entries are welcome and should contact Sharon Keogh on 0408 154 890 or email sdtpinc@gmail.com.
