With just under two months until the Southern Hemisphere’s biggest and richest Rodeo event kicks off, organisers are expecting huge interest from not only the sporting genre enthusiasts but also general public who enjoy a wager… with favourable odds!
No ordinary raffle, each year the Mount Isa Rotary Rodeo joins forces with local business ‘Bell and Moir Toyota’ and the Mount Isa ‘Harvey World Travel’ outlet to present the MOUNT ISA ROTARY RODEO ART UNION prize draw, where tickets offer a bigger bounty than the standard chook raffle. With the “raffle” restricted to a maximum of only 2,000 tickets and with a price tag of $100 each, punters can purchase knowing that their chances are better than that on offer from Lotto anyday!
With over $100,000 worth of prizes on offer, the annual raffle sells out quickly. Tickets are on sale now and the last tickets must be sold by 11am on the 12th August 2007. Making up the prize pool for 2007 is:
First prize: Toyota Prado GXL Turbo Diesel, 4X4 Wagon with Standard Features including Air Conditioning (Including all on road costs).
Second prize: Toyota Aurion ATX 3.5L V6 Petrol Sedan with Standard Features including Air Conditioning and Silver Metallic Paint (Including all on road costs).
Third prize: $3,000 Travel Voucher with Harvey World Travel.
Mrs Joyce McCulloch, General Manager of the 2007 Xstrata Mount Isa Mines Rotary Rodeo said, “Let’s face it, what other competition or raffle gives entrants these odds with the standard of prizes on offer… the tickets always sell out and the draw is a moment of anticipation for 2,000 ticket holders”.
“It’s the dedication of the Art Union and the support of local businesses like Bell and Moir and Harvey World Travel who donate so freely to support the Xstrata Mount Isa Mines Rotary Rodeo that allow us to deliver unique offerings such as this, we are extremely grateful”, Mrs McCulloch added.
Winners of the monster prize raffle will be notified by mail. The results will also be published in the North West Star, Wednesday 15 August 2007. The 2007 Mount Isa Rotary Rodeo Art Union is proudly supported by Bell & Moir Toyota and Harvey World Travel, Mount Isa. Organisers are recommending to all those interested in entering the draw log onto www.isarodeo.com.au to download the ticket request form and get in early and secure their ticket(s).
The largest rodeo event in the Southern Hemisphere, the 2007 Xstrata Mount Isa Mines Rotary Rodeo will run from Friday 10th to Sunday 12th August 2007. With a record bounty on offer to competitors, the event is preparing for what will be its biggest year both on and offline.
