Go west young man (and woman), go west! The traditional command was obeyed with gusto on Saturday night at the annual Kumbia Brain Drain.

The theme for this year’s trivia night – which is a major fundraiser for the Kumbia State School P&C – was “The Wild West”, and yes, the night was pretty wild.

There were gunslingers, cowboys, saloon girls and even a sheriff or two.

Oddly enough, there were also a few sheep, cattle and horses!

The night attracted patrons from across the South Burnett, Darling Downs and Brisbane, and even a few from NSW.

The number of tables sold was down slightly, which organisers put down to tickets going on sale later than normal.

They promised that the this would be rectified for 2018 and the theme would also be announced sooner.

No one would have noticed on the night that the numbers were down, as the hall was still packed with color and atmosphere, and the sounds of cowboys and cowgirls having a fun time.
