Campdrafters back in the saddle.

 The Southern Downs Campdraft community took a hefty blow when COVID-19 restrictions forced the cancellations of the famed Warwick Warwick Rodeo and Gold Cup Campdraft.

This weekend however riders will be back in the saddle for the Warwick Show and Rodeo Society’s camp draft event on Saturday (24 October).

Organisers are delighted with the nominations they have received for this weekend’s event.

There is already a full draft and entrants in novice, maiden juvenile and junior drafts.

Under COVID safe guidelines up to 1000 spectators are expected to celebrate the much anticipated return of the sport.

Every cloud has a silver-lining and some competitors get the opportunity to compete in the Warwick arena for the first time.

The draft will have a particular focus of family and a fun filled day. The action starts early at 6.00am and there will be bar and canteen facilities operating all day.

Entry will be through gate four so head down to the Warwick Showgrounds and help the Warwick show Society and Campdraft committee to thank the sponsors and volunteers who have supported them throughout this difficult year.
