Don’t Miss it This Thursday Aug. 19 — CWWR Finals & End of Season

Come join us for the last rodeo of the season. You don’t want to weaken now and you sure don’t want to miss out. We will be announcing the Buckle Winners and All Around. It’s been a heck of a fun season and we’ve sure been blessed to be back at it. We can’t express in words how much it meant to see the stands fill up, hear the whoops of the fans, and watch the action packed events. The enthusiasm of the crowds has been contagious. Thank you for showing how much the rodeo means to you.

Our fans, contestants, volunteers, and board have made it a wonderful return. We’ve set record breaking attendance several times. Fans, contestants, sponsors, volunteers, stock contractors, all have gotten soaked to the bone and stayed put finishing out rodeo performances through rain, lit up skies, smoke and a lake of an arena. You are all our heroes for making it possible to bring back our Small Town Rodeo, Big Time Fun!!
