CLIFTON campdrafter Michael Boyce took home the coveted Jim Goodrich Perpetual Trophy at the hotly contested Inglewood Show Society Campdraft recently.

The trophy is awarded to the rider with the highest score in the first round of the maiden, novice and open drafts and the seasoned local competitor proved a clear winner.

Another Southern Downs rider dominated the women's tallies with Tanya Bellingham claiming the Tyranook Trophy for the female competitor with the highest score in any one round of the draft, including the finals.

On the local scene it was talented rider Darcy Hobbs who left with the Inglewood Trophy for the highest placed local competitor.

Inglewood Show Society Campdraft committee's Denise Hobbs described this year's event as a major success.

"Numbers were down slightly on last year due to some late cancellations but overall the quality of competitors was great," Mrs Hobbs said.

"We were extremely happy by the amount of positive feedback received from entrants, particularly on the smooth transitions between events and quality of the cattle provided.

"Campdrafting cannot take place without the continued generosity of our cattle donors and we'd like to thank them, plus those who put in time to cart the cattle, plus all our volunteers who worked so tirelessly to ensure our campdraft was such a success."
