Brads Flight for Life – a huge success!

This weekend “Brads Flight for Life“ and the the Coolamon Showgrounds was the place to be in Coolamon Shire! 

The event consisted of a 2 Day Stockmans Challenge and single day of Team Penning and it was held on Saturday 7th and Sunday the 8th June at the Coolamon Showgrounds, Coolamon.

On Saturday, patrons enjoyed the Preliminary Stockmans Relay, Auctions, Tug-O-War and novelty events. On Sunday there was a Family Gymkhana, the Top Ten Final, Ladies Final and Juniors Final.. Plenty of action for all of the family!  

A total of $48,115.81 was raised and donated to Snowy Hydro Southcare Helicopter - what an amazing effort from everyone involved.
