The rodeo has come to the beach with the Red Devils Rugby League Club in Byron Bay hosting the annual Hall Rodeo next Wednesday night (Jan 6).

Ian Bostock will present his ‘Wild-side’ series of rodeos and there will be wild action from the ‘meanest’ bulls, ‘rankest’ horses and ‘fastest’ cowgirls.

Hall Rodeo has in its string of bucking stock numerous winners of the National Rodeo Association ‘Bucking Stock of the Year’ title.

To its credit Hall Rodeo has won 33 titles, in the last 29 years.

The program will feature a ‘bull and bronc spectacular’ with plenty of good comedy routines in between events.

These will include an open bull ride, open saddle ride, junior bull ride and to bring a bit of glamour to the night there will be women’s barrel race.

 The cowboys and cowgirls will come from all over Queensland and northern New South Wales.

There will be good prizemoney on offer, but more importantly points will go to the end-of-year title of champion in respective events.

 Rodeo spokesperson Carol Bostock said that the Byron Bay rodeo was the first rodeo of the season, so competitors were looking to kick the year off with a show of form that would carry them through to an end-of-year win.

Comedy will be supplied by Ian Bostock, who is undoubtedly the funniest man on the show and rodeo circuit today.

He will keep the crowds laughing with his side-splitting jokes and his ‘amazing’ animal acts.

Ian has made the crowds laugh from the big Sydney Royal Show in the south, to the famous Mareeba Rodeo in the north and everywhere in between.

Don’t miss his ‘woolly bully’ act, it has something for everyone – speed, laughter, wheelies, wheel stands and a whole lot more.

The action kicks off at 7.30pm. “Don’t miss the best entertainment in your town,” Carol said.
