Despite the extreme weather conditions on Friday the Braidwood Campdrafting weekend kicked off at midday with the Encouragement Draft, which had such a large entry that it had to be split into four individual drafts. Following was the Ladies draft and then the Open for Open. Fridays cattle were generously supplied by The Lavis family and Alan and Kathy Hannaford. On Saturday, in much more subdued weather conditions, drafting started at 6:30 am to enable organisers to get through such a large entry in both the Novice Draft and the Landmark feature Open. All the cattle for Saturdays drafting were supplied by the Braidwood Cattle Company.
A great catch up evening and presentation was held in the pavilion with Trish Young and families putting on a fabulous feed and Apex manning the bar.
Sunday’s drafting kicked off with the first of the two Maiden drafts, followed by the Junior and Juvenile, 2nd Maiden draft and then the Novice for Novice. Cattle on Sunday’s program were kindly supplied by the Braidwood Cattle co, Paul Hart and Ian Laurie. Braidwood Campdraft club would like to thank all of its volunteers, helpers and drovers for all their hard work and efforts to keep the draft flowing and making it a great weekend for all. Thanks again to our Sponsors and cattle suppliers. Results in next week’s paper.
