Tuesday, April 05, 2011

MEDIA are invited to observe the final phase of construction of the indoor APRA 2011 National Finals Rodeo arena at 10:45am on WEDNESDAY 6th April, at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, Broadbeach.

Over 800 tonnes of dirt will have been laid and rodeo officials will be on-hand for rodeo-eve comment on the event preparations and the national competition to be staged this week. Another media option is presented with the installation of a free-to-ride mechanical bull in the Broadbeach Mall from 10:00am until 4:00pm each day. It proved an instant hit with competitors in the Australian Surf Life Saving Championships when installed on Tuesday and it will continue to provide some excellent photo and video opportunities throughout the week. Additional diary notes: Sunshine Ford Cowboy Breakfast at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre Thursday (7th) from 10:00am ahead of first session of competition Thursday night at 7:00pm.
