Police help prepare for the Injune Golden Bit Campdraft

This weekend sees the annual Injune Golden Bit Campdraft hit town. The event will be held at the Campdraft Arena at the Injune Racecourse.

The event runs from Friday, April 21 through to Sunday, April 23 and will see some top quality campdrafting action, as well as entertainment on Saturday night.

In preparation for the event officers from Injune Station were called to help direct traffic as 1002 head of cattle were walked across the Carnarvon Highway at the Westgrove Road junction. The traffic on the highway was very patient and considerate as the herd of cattle walked across the road. The cattle showed some great road sense looking right, then left and right again before crossing the road. The sight of this many cattle on the road caught the attention of some travellers who pulled up to take some happy snaps of the cattle.

Injune Police would like to remind everyone attending this event that police will be out and about on the road targeting the Fatal Five. Police have been advised that there will be a courtesy bus running to transport locals home and there is camping available at the event. This means there is no excuse to be caught drink driving.

Injune Police encourage everyone to have a great weekend and enjoy themselves. They also wish all the competitors the best of luck whilst competing at this year’s event.
