Barrie Collins fundraising ride:
Additional to this competition, Barrie Collins, a professional rodeo photographer, will take on the challenge to ride a bull himself.
Although not a rider, he has decided to undergo this extreme feat to raise money for Cancer Research at the Peter Mac 'CanCare Cancer Research Unit'.
To sponsor Barrie for this extraordinary act, you can either make a straight forward monetary donation, or you can set a dollar amount for every second that you think he will be able to stay on the bull, with a maximum time of 8 seconds.
If Barrie does manage to last the full 8 seconds, he will be paid a bonus by the Tarraroo Rodeo Company, with all proceeds going towards this amazing Cancer research unit.
So why not come along to this unique event that will help to raise money and ensure you and your family have a fantastic night out.
