Cowboy competitions combine without locking horns

AUSTRALIAN Professional Rodeo Association has expressed happiness at having the 2015 National Finals Rodeo in Warwick in conjunction with the Warwick Gold Cup Campdraft.

"It will be a real benefit having the Gold Cup and the NFR championship rodeo at the same venue at the same time," executive board chairman Russell Collins said.

Mr Collins said as Warwick was in southern Queensland and close to the New South Wales border, it was very central for the rodeo movement.

"It has an excellent arena, there can be storms in October and the arena stands up well year after year," he said.

The NFR will be contested on October 22-25 in Warwick by the top-15 in all eight APRA events.

"It is a win for both the APRA and the society," he said. Visit
