Beef, Buckles and Boots social was very popular
Graziers, project delivery partners, science collaborators and industry representatives joined the LDC team at the Collinsville Community Centre for a social get together in September. It was our way to thank everybody for supporting the LDC project.
Almost 80 people attended the event and proved to be a captive audience when guest speaker Shane Webcke, rugby league legend and Queensland Safety Ambassador, told his story, including his childhood years growing up on a property.
The winners of the photography competition were announced. Finalists and runner-ups will feature in a 2020 LDC Calendar. The competition drew almost 100 entries, and proved so popular, that it will be held again next year.
After dinner, people kicked up their heels to music, and both adults and children enjoyed the jumping castle and bucking mechanical bull.
Thank you for supporting this event and making it a great success.
