Scott’s first win is twice as nice at Ulmarra Campdraft
FOR someone who has never won a campdraft before, picking up two wins at the hotly contested Ulmarra Show and Campdraft Society Campdraft is a pretty good result.
Brushgrove man Scott Davis won the maiden draft on Red Acres and the open draft on Hollywood Maverick at the weekend.
"I'm 46 years old and have never won a campdraft before," Davis said.
"It's probably something that I won't ever do again in my lifetime.
"To do it against the level of this weekend's competition was the best part."
His daughter received the juvenile encouragement rider award.
Davis said there were about 550 nominations from the best riders on the North Coast.
In all drafts there were only one or two points separating first to fifth place.
Davis is also a committee member of the Ulmarra Show and Campdraft Society and with his committee hat on, said the event was a big success.
"We had a lot of local support, from cattle donors to local transport companies," Davis said.
"The people that I spoke to were overwhelmed with the committee we have.
"My special thanks goes out to the committee members.
"It takes a good committee to run a campdraft like this." He said its success could only be achieved by people giving up their weekend and donating their time.
