Second time round the ring for Wattles Warriors Rodeo

RODEO: Riding high on the success of last year, the second installment of the Wattles Warriors Rodeo arrives this weekend.

On Saturday a $5000 prize for moo poo will again headline the Wattles Rodeo at the Allora Showgrounds.

Last year the event attracted a massive crowd of close to 1000 spectators and Wattles president Aaron Scheid said he hoped to match that number again this year.

"Last year was so well supported, we knew we definitely had to do it again," he said.

"We weren't expecting such a big crowd but luckily the showgrounds can cater for such a big crowd.

"This year we are expecting a similar number to turn out on the day."

Scheid said there were still tickets available for the moo poo.

"It will cost $100 per ticket to enter into the moo poo," Scheid said.

"There will be 100 squares mapped out on the field and the person that has the square where the cow does its business will be the winner."

Last year's winner was Michael Duggan who took home the $5000 prize.

The usual pig races have been replaced by yabby races and an "Allora's strongest man" competition.

Over a 20m obstacle course entrants will have to complete a series of tasks to prove their toughness, ranging from lifting tyres to eating Weet-bix and downing a beer.

Gates open at 4pm, with the first of six yabby races to begin at 3.30pm before the rodeo action kicks off at 7pm.

Entertainment for kids will include a jumping castle and fairy floss, while a canteen and bar will also be open.

Entry costs $15 per adult, for more information, phone Aaron Scheid on 0458 204 550.
