Allora goes drafting

GLENMORGAN campdrafter Michael Hayes was the major winner at the annual Allora and District Campdraft Association event at the weekend.

He won the maiden B and restricted open and was pushed into second by Allora rider Michael Dwan in maiden A.

St George rider Buddy Tattam won the open and it was Warwick rider Aaron Williamson on the victory dias in the novice.

There was a four-way tie on 173 before Williamson ended the likelihood of a run-off to win by one in the second-last run.

Reigning Warwick Gold Cup champion Michael Hiscock, of Maffra, Victoria, judged three of the classes and yesterday put on a coaching clinic for 20 campdrafters at Allora.

At the event, association president Glenn Evans donated a defibrillator to the Queensland Fire and Rescue Service, Allora station, for the use of the Allora community.
