Hundreds turn out for rodeo
RODEO: One-tonne bucking bulls turned heads and kids had a crack at being cowboys at the annual Condamine Bell Rodeo at the weekend.

The two-day event was action-packed with the Saturday night bull, saddle and bareback rides, as well as rope and tie, steer wrestling, undecorating, breakaway, team roping and plenty of fun for the junior cowboys in bull, steer and poddy rides.
