ALL the tried and noted riders - and some competing for the first time - took to the ring for the annual Widgee Campdraft and Rodeo last weekend.

It was a full three days of action at the Widgee Showgrounds where spectators were treated to top-class performances by cowboys, and horsemen and women from around the region and interstate.

Nominations for all events were filled in advance with many competitors and their supporters camping overnight at the showgrounds.
