Vanessa Ternes 2011 Miss Rodeo South Dakota coronation is Jan. 8 in Belle Fourche

Alaina Mousel, Editor

Belle Fourche, SD will host the 2011 Miss Rodeo South Dakota coronation for Vanessa Ternes on Jan. 8, 2011 at the Belle Fourche Community Hall. Ternes, who calls Belle home, has waited six months for this night since being crowned Miss Rodeo South Dakota Lady-in-Waiting 2011, July 2, during the Black Hills Roundup.

According to Ternes, the coronation celebration begins at 5 p.m. with a social hour and silent auction. Dinner begins at 6 p.m., followed by the coronation at 7 p.m. A live auction begins at 8 p.m., with a dance to follow.

“We’re inviting the whole town of Belle Fourche and the surrounding communities,” Ternes said, noting that RSVPs should be made by Dec. 30, 2010 via e-mail to: missrodeosd2011@gmail.com. Dinner is $15/plate in advance, or $20 at the door. “Of course, pre-registration is preferred,” Ternes said. Each Miss Rodeo South Dakota title holder is responsible for planning and carrying out her coronation ceremony.

Sponsors for the event include the South Dakota Cattlewomen, South Dakota Cattlemen’s Association, Integrity Meats and Beef Bucks.

Silent and live auctions during the Jan. 8 event help offset costs incurred during the year-long reign of Miss Rodeo South Dakota. “The silent auction is really fun and includes items I think are neat such as artwork and Western Wear – it’s kind of like a post-Christmas shopping event,” Ternes said.

Funds raised from the event cover travel, as well as helping Ternes prepare for Miss Rodeo America. “This will also be a good chance for me to connect with good friends,” Ternes said. “I need as much support as I can get, and to make many friendships.”
