Myrtleford Golden Spurs Rodeo
Notice for 2023 Rodeo
LIONS Club of Myrtleford are please to advise they are busy planning the 68th Myrtleford Golden Spurs Rodeo on Boxing Day.
After being forced to stop the 2022 Myrtleford Golden Spurs Rodeo midway through the evening session due to poor weather, we are determined to complete our 2023 APRA Hall of Fame rodeo this year. Our town needs it, our sponsors need it, and our rodeo fans and visitors are keen to get amongst the exciting live action of Rodeo here in Myrtleford. Once again Rodeo Sock Contractor Happy Gill and sons are providing the stock for this year’s Rodeo. This year’s Bull Ride Chute out has jackpotted to $8000 winner take all, this will be hotly contested by Australia’s very best bull riders.
Despite the rodeo being run entirely by volunteers (which sadly there not making many anymore), we have needed to put our ticket prices up this year by $5.00 across the board for entry to cover the additional costs of the contractors we engage to work on what is a public holiday. We ask that you accept this cheerfully and know that any profits made are being donated to Lions Programs and directly into our local community.
This financial year the Lions Club of Myrtleford has made over $10,000 donations to local and Australian Lions Projects, these donations are passed directly to people and communities in need.
