The 2018 Glowalman Junior Campdraft and Sporting Championships are underway.
The region has been inundated with eager young riders taking on the week long competition, with around 400 entries in the campdraft alone.
Spread across three venues, the Gloucester, Nabiac and Wingham showgrounds, the event had typically run Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, but due to the high volume of entries in this popular competition it will spread across the full week.
Competition on Monday and Tuesday, was at Wingham. The event moved to Gloucester on Wednesday and Thursday, July 18 and 19 and concludes at Nabiac on Saturday, July 21.
Each venue hosts a range of campdrafting and sporting events, including bend, flag barrel, bonfield bounce, bend bar aft and stockrider.
The competition is open for children from eight to under 21 years with Gloucester to hold a led event around 12.30pm for the younger riders.
Campdraft and sporting awards will be presented at noon at the next venue following the event, with the Glowalman awards being presented at the completion of all the events at Nabiac.
Each year Glowalman has visiting riders from Western Australia with two chosen from this competition to head to Western Australia later in the year. This year, 18 year old Darcie Morris and 15 year old Freya Kerr will be making the trip to the Mid Coast region for the competition.
