AFTER another season of bashing and crashing around the football field, the Warwick Cowboys are going to do it all again next Saturday night, but this time in a slightly different arena.

The town's premier footballers will line up to take part in the annual Warwick Cowboys Rodeo.

A major fundraiser for the club, last year saw them raise in excess of $10,000.

Rodeo organising committee member Karen Usher said the funds raised from the popular event allowed the club to stay alive for younger players with dreams of being a Cowboy.

"It's always a great family night out," she said.

"This is a National Rodeo Association affiliated rodeo, so it's the real deal."

Mrs Usher said crowds would enjoy all the usual rodeo events.

"Plus we'll have a steer ride for local riders sponsored by B&K Motors, and the footy players' poddy ride is sponsored by KJT Rural Contracting," she said.

"There's a chance for the kids to win a bike as well."

Gates open at 5pm, Saturday, September 23, at Father Ranger Oval. Phone Liz Browne on 0409894100 for details.
