Gymkhana a huge success



WITH all the rain leading up to Tewantin-Noosa's Gymkhana last weekend, it was touch and go whether it would have to be cancelled.

At 7am the rain stopped, the floats started to roll in and 106 riders competed.

It turned out to be one of the biggest gymkhana's Tewantin-Noosa had hosted.

The club raised more than $3500 on the day, between the nomination, raffles and the canteen.

The money will help the club cover its nsurance payout shortfall of $7900 sparked by the from the recent spate of vandalism to the clubhouse.

Pony club members from Mary Valley to Brisbane travelled to compete in the range of events: Best Presented, Rider Class, Barrel Race, Keyhole, Top Score, Tewantin Scatter, Bending, Bounce Pony and, of course, the Tewantin Mystery.

Everyone had a wonderful fun-packed day.

The Champion Rider for the Day was Tewantin-Noosa rider 11-year-old Greta Henriksen.

Highest point scorers for Tewantin were junior rider Elke Kahler and senior rider Aaron Brooksmith.

Tewantin-Noosa Pony Club would like to thank all the sponsors, judges, volunteers, competitors and, of course, the mums and dads for making this gymkhana such a success.

The next muster will be held on August 20.

New members are always welcome.
