Pink and Blue Day a great success

The Beaudesert Cutting and Western Performance Club held its annual Pink and Blue event on October 8 at the Sue West Memorial Arena on Josephville Road.

Club secretary and co-organiser Janice Turner said 50 competitors in the cutting events and 40 competitors for the western performance helped make the day a resounding success.

“We had a really great day and everyone had so much fun,” she said.

“We all enjoyed getting dressed up in our pink and blue outfits and it was for a very good cause.

“Competitors mainly came from the surrounding Scenic Rim Region, but others travelled from Logan, Lockyer Valley and Northern NSW. 

“The day also attracted a number of local spectators who although enjoying a free spectacle generously supported our fundraising.”

Ms Turner said the event far exceeded fundraising expectations, with more than $3,000 in the coffers by close of day with more to be added after a second small event next month. 

“This tally would not have been possible without the generous support of local graziers Ray Dennis, Errol Craig, Warren Drynan and Neville Brookes who generously donated the fees normally charged for cattle hire for our cutting events.

Ms Turner also wanted to thank the many other local businesses that had generously pledged support by supplying prizes and vouchers for a huge multi-draw raffle.
