Malanda Bull Ride bucks into action
SPECTATORS at this Saturday night’s Malanda Bull Ride will enjoy six hours of bucking action and the all the thrills and spills of the arena as cowboys get set to put in their best efforts to take out big cash prizes.
Held at the Malanda Showgrounds and sponsored this year by The Big Pub, the evening kicks off at 4pm (gates open at 3pm), and will feature a variety of different events all leading up to the very impressive Fahlstrom Scaffold Open Bull Ride which has a $10,000 prize pool.
Organisers expect the event to be extremely competitive and tense considering the sizeable prize takings and the calibre of riders taking part.
Spectators will also get to enjoy all the action of the calf rides, local bullock ride and novice bull rides in the afternoon to the mini bull, junior and open rides in the evening.
Those attending can also enjoy watching all the action close up on the live big screen.
In addition to the main event on the Saturday afternoon and evening, celebrations will actually begin on Thursday night at “The Big Pub” with the Open Bull Ride draw and a Calcutta auction.
The Calcutta auction involves the elite Open Bull Riders being split into
teams and each team will be auctioned to participants who attend the Calcutta.
During the Open Bull Ride on Saturday, the highest aggregated points will be deemed, the winning team and whoever purchased that team will win 60 per cent of the auction pool of money, with the second place taking home the remaining 40 per cent.
