Welcome Back Adam Bugner — CWWR Volunteer Extraordinaire

On behalf of all the Carbondale Wild West Rodeo Association Board, Volunteers, Contestants and Fans we would like to welcome back Adam Bugner. Adam was injured during the second rodeo of the season when he stepped between a bull and a gentleman behind the bucking chutes.Adam suffered some injuries to his rib cage and took some time off to recuperate. Adam returned as a volunteer at the August 13, 2015 rodeo. Adam, thanks again for your dedication to the Carbondale Wild West Rodeo.
