Hats off to rollicking rodeo

BUCKING broncos, raging bulls and those who dare to ride them put on one fantastic night of entertainment at the Stony Creek Rodeo on Saturday.

A high level of skill was on display from the competitors, with the crowd on the edge of their seats for most of the rides.

In the afternoon, early comers were entertained with sheaf tossing, as well as dog jumping and sheep dog trials by the Beloka Kelpie Stud, Welshpool.

Australia’s whip cracking champion Wayne Campbell showed his skill with the whip as well as scaring a few brave volunteers with some close cracks.

Truckin’ with Tim and Ruckus provided the musical entertainment to set off the rodeo in true country style.

Organiser Neil Cope said the event was a huge success.

“It was what we were hoping for,” he said.

“It was just a fantastic night.”

Mr Cope would like to thank all the volunteers and sponsors that made the rodeo possible and is already looking forward to 2014.
