Sheep dog trials
The Killarney sheep dog trials will be held over this coming weekend at the Killarney show grounds.
Respected championship judge and Kelpie breeder Gary Milgate from Yangan will judge in the main arena over the course of the weekend.
Rosemary Gibson said along with the course in the main arena there will also be a short course event for new competitors in the rodeo arena.
Over the weekend there will be a run off for positions to represent Queensland to compete at the Australian team selection trials later this year.
The run off for this event will be held over a Trans Tasman Course.
The Trans Tasman Course involves both Australia and New Zealand rules and layout.
Competing in the Queensland run off will be Jim O’Connell from Winton with two dogs, Geoff Gibson from Yangan with two dogs, David Lacey, Colin Topp from Brisbane and John Parr from Omanama each with one dog.
All dogs have earned points during the season to qualify for the run off with the top two competitors going on to represent Queensland at the Australian team qualifier.
A canteen will operate on the grounds throughout the weekend with meals at the Killarney Recreation Centre on Saturday and Sunday night.
