Team Roping Schedule
A bit of history
Competitions such as a barrel race where you had to drink a can of beer at the last barrel before the run home were huge crowd pleasers but definitely could not be tolerated in today’s environment.
However everyone had a huge amount of fun and the combination of hot sun and plenty of liquid refreshments has left us with some entertaining stories. One day a land rover was backed up the bank to provide grandstand seating late in the day which managed to set fire to the pampas & gorse which then surrounded the Arena. An impressive public display by our local firefighters extinguished the blaze which further added to the day’s excitement.
The Northern Districts Team Roping Club took over the management of the Arena including the Show Day event and proceeded, with the co-operation of the N.K.A.A. to make improvements over the years. The Arena has been lowered and enlarged, drained & had sand surface added to make it a more weather resistant facility. Stock loading pens, bucking chutes & time event boxes have been installed.
It is now a very functional and suitable Arena for the Team Roping Club.
Entries on the day – From 8.00am
Competition Starts 9.00am
