Condamine Bell Campdraft

WITH more than 1200 runs set for this year's Condamine Bell Rodeo, it's a good thing the event will be running over three days at the Condamine Sports and Recreation Grounds.

The action will kick off Friday and go through until Sunday, with all proceeds from the event going to local charities.

The main action is set for the Sunday of the campdraft, with the novice and open drafts coming to a head after the elimination rounds the day before.

 

 

Oktoberfest in Chinchilla

FISH out the dirndl and lederhosen this Saturday night because Germany is coming to Chinchilla with Oktoberfest.

Event organisers have gone all out with the German theme, so in addition to the mandatory German beer and steins to drink them from, food and music from Deutschland will also be in ample supply.

Tickets can be pre-purchased for $25 by phoning CCI event manager Kimberley Lingard on 0410022 519 or bought at the door on the night for $30.
