Campdrafting is an integral part of Eumamurrin, it is what keeps the community alive.

For three days, the local recreation association welcomed riders from near and far to their arena for a hugely successful weekend.

"Cameron Lee, my husband and president of the recreation association, won one of the maiden drafts, which was a highlight for all of us,” campdraft organiser Jane Lee said.

"But really, the whole event is a testament to our cattle donors - the cattle was amazing this year and we had a lot of local kids who were happy to be our little helpers to bring them all in.”

Behind the scenes, each member of the Eumamurrin Recreation Association had a hand in putting the draft together, from planning to running the canteen.

"Credit should also go to our committee,” Jane said.

"They have pulled together to work as a team and have run another successful weekend.

"Everyone who came along is so happy with how the event went, so congratulations need to go to everyone involved.”
