The Finley and District Rodeo was yet again a hit with spectators, with more than 1500 people travelling to the area to watch and compete in the event.

This year’s rodeo featured a great live show, sideshows and the new addition of a big screen.

Committee president Rick Harris said he has had ‘‘a lot of great feedback about the big screen at this year’s event.’’

‘‘It really boosted the atmosphere of the event and allowed us to really acknowledge our sponsors, however, it came at a cost to the committee,’’ he said.

Harris stated he chose to bring the big screen to the rodeo to boost tourism in the area. He said a two hour television documentary is currently being made covering the Finley Rodeo.

The heat also took its toll on the event, with gate takings down $7000 on last year.

The winner of the open bull ride was Cory Waterson, while the open saddle bronc ride was won by Brett Osman.

The committee would like to thank all of the sponsors and supporters, particularly Finley Supa IGA, K&A Foods, Peter Scott Electrician, Rodd Close, Sal Corcoran, Rodger Sutton, Hoofs 2010, Grant Wilson, Rob McCullough, Finley Golf Club, Geoff Boscombe, Finley Football Club, Steve Little, Peter Wood, Berrigan Shire, Greg McNamara and the helpers on the gate.

If you would like to come on board as a sponsor for next year’s event, please contact Michelle and Gerard on 0417523495.
