KCGM sponsors a range of organisations around the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder. In this section, we outline some of these programs and how they are going.
Sporting Gold for Local Riders
The Kalgoorlie District Pony Club (KDPC) held its biggest event of the year on July 14 and 15, the Norton Golden Nugget One Day Event.
The meet is the only one-day event in Western Australia to award gold nuggets as prizes and according to KDPC President Deanne Jones, attracts competitors from all over the state.
“About 90 competitors and 400 spectators attended over the weekend. The whole weekend is great fun and a great introduction to Kalgoorlie for our visitors.”
The weekend also includes a bonfire social night, home cooked meals and an auction to raise funds for the club. KCGM donated a framed picture of the historic Golden Mile, which was bought at auction by a very happy Murray McEwan.
The event raised over $2,800 which will be used to develop the skills of local riders through specialised coaching and training, and to purchase new showjumping and games equipment.
The KDPC has been part of the Kalgoorlie- Boulder community for over 30 years and currently has members from the ages of 4 to 25. If you would like to know more, contact Deanne on 0408 934 913 or firstname.lastname@example.org
