Riders make some noise at Yuleba Gymkhana

THIS might of been Liam Clifford’s first time competing at the Yuleba Gymkhana but it most certainly won’t be his last.

Liam was one of the many winners on the day, joining some of the best riders in the region.

Treasurer of the Yuleba State School P&C Tammy Bell was impressed with the amount of riders who came to compete.

“I think we have around 40 riders here this morning; we’ve got people who have come from Cunnamulla and we’ve got people who have come from Toowoomba and everywhere in-between,” Ms Bell said.

“A lot of people have made a huge effort to come out today and they kids are all having fun which is what it’s all about.”

Riders competed on the day to not only support the Yuleba State School but to also take out a number of cash prizes.

“The 0-8’s and the under 13’s get medals as well as prize money and then there’s prize money for the other age groups as well,” Ms Bell said.

President of the Yuleba State School P&C Karen Hibbs said the day couldn’t of gone ahead without the support from the school and the local communities and businesses.

“We really appreciate all of the donations from the businesses and those who have helped out on the day; we have a number of items donated that will be raffled off” Ms Hibbs said.

“I’d like to give a special thanks to the volunteers and helpers on the day and to Brian Klein who organised the motorbike side of things.”

Funds raised on the day will go towards the Yuleba State School camp.
