Braidwood Campdraft Club would like to thank the following cattle donors as without them we would have no competition. Ray and Amanda Hall - Braidwood Cattle Co., Lavis Family – Strathallan, Alan and Kathy Hannaford, Frank Morrison, Paul Hart, George Sherriff, Phil Shoemark, Owen Gwinn, Ian Laurie and Melanie Cochrane. We would also like to thank our generous sponsors: Landmark, Daniel and Walker, The Australian Stockyard Company and Frank Coonan.
Recently there was a working bee held at the showgrounds to run power and water to the new Pony Club shed and the Campdraft arena, the construction of a portable announcing stand and installation of two 2000 litre water troughs in back holding yards for the cattle. With these new facilities we can provide greater care of stock and greater potential to host a variety of other sports in the back paddock. The Braidwood Campdraft Club would like to thank all volunteers who donated their sweat, time, equipment and supplies. With particular mention to Bill of William Hawes Electrical for providing the expertise and his time to make it possible. Thanks also to Wade Sephton and the Braidwood Rodeo crew, the Braidwood Pony Club, and to Sam Amey and Marty Jefferies for providing and manning the trench diggers.
We look forward to seeing you at the campdraft.
