The Augathella Rodeo Association is picking up where Mitchell is putting down, with the staging of a new years’ Eve Rodeo.
With the decision from Mitchell to not stage a New Years’ rodeo this year, Keith Clarke, President of the Augathella Rodeo Association says they can now pick up the event.
Mr Clarke says the event still has to be put to the club for confirmation but he says it is a reality.
“It won’t be as big as our Easter rodeo,” Mr Clarke said.
“There won’t be any roping.”
Augathella held a New Years’ until the mid-90’s and locals are embracing the idea of it return.
The plan is falling into place for a night of entertainment with the Rodeo under lights from 6pm and from 9pm a DJ.
