Massive turnout for return of Woodford Rodeo
AFTER a four-year hiatus, a crowd of more than 2,500 attended last weekend’s NRA Woodford Summer Rodeo, making it a sold-out event.
Treasurer Tracey Benjafield said the Woodford Show Society would like to thank everyone who attended.
“Woodford Show Society are excited to get back doing events for the local community,” Tracey said.
She said the general feedback from attendees was that the event was a success, and the addition of a big screen displaying ride repeats was very well received by the crowd.
“However, we do have some areas like gate entry, and layout of areas like the bar that will definitely be reviewed and fixed for any upcoming events.
“Thank-you to our major sponsor, the Dag Pub, and a huge shoutout to our volunteers the Woodford Lions, Stoney Creek Rural Fire Brigade, and Woodford Men’s Shed.”
