Campdraft flies into action

The Wallumbilla Camdraft Association hosted its annual campdraft on the weekend with more than 150 competitors descending on the small town.

After not running the campdraft last year, due to dry weather, organisers were impressed with how the event pulled together.

Campdraft association secretary Trish Rowbotham said on Saturday they had 770 first-round runs.

"Some of the highlights included Anthony Carter winning the patron's award which is for the highest scoring local in the maiden draft and we had a property team challenge which is open to maiden horses,” she said.

"Everyone enjoys the full weekend and the cattle are always good competition and sometimes a bit tough.”

This year was the first time the campdraft hosted the maiden final under lights, proving to be a big success.

Jamie Johnson took out the win for the maiden final on his horse Pepper and a total score of 175, followed by Peter Brennan with a score of 169 on his horse, Davina.
