BRONCO branding in bright pink outfits isn’t something you see every day – but it was all for a good cause when the Wild Ones stepped up the fashion stakes at the Camooweal Drovers Camp Festival.
The Wild Ones team of Allan ‘‘Tungi’’ Saltmere, Ian ‘‘Dale’’ Saltmere, Clargie Saltmere, Trevor and Tallis Ah Fat donned pink when they took part in the bronco branding to raise awareness of breast cancer.
Allan said there were a few funny looks, but fellow competitors and the crowd were right behind their cause.
“Real men wear pink,” he laughed.
“Some of the other competitors give us a bit of stick but deep down they are right behind it.”
Allan said the aim was to wear pink and promote breast cancer awareness in the bush.
“We’ve got to bring breast cancer awareness to the bush more,” he said.
“It’s not getting noticed as much in the bush as it is in the city.”
With a big crowd on hand for the festival, it was an ideal time to promote the cause and raise money and awareness.
Tallis and Trevor Ah Fat, Allan “Tungi” Saltmere, Ian “Dale” Saltmere and Clargie Saltmere proudly wore pink at the weekend’s Camooweal Drovers Camp Festival bronco branding to support breast cancer research. Visitors from across Australia were lured to the festival, joining hundreds of North West locals for three days of entertainment to remember the droving tradition.
