Outside Circle by Jan Swan Wood: Youth rodeos, ranch rodeos, ranch broncs, high school challenge, Indian relays, clinics
Well, the frost sure went off the punkins this past week. It’s not the first time it’s been hot and it won’t be the last time either. Everyone sure complains about it though. Admittedly, I’m not fond of extreme heat as there just isn’t enough stripping down one can do to get cool, plus you can get arrested if you go too far. In winter you can add more layers without that problem. It averages out.
There’s going to be a Ranch Rodeo at Sundance, Wyo., on July 26, calcutta at 6p.m., ranch rodeo to follow at 6:30. Entries are open now and will close July 21. It’s $300/team to enter. Call Zach Steele to get entered at 307-210-1077. Admission is only $5 for adults, kids 5 and under are free, so a great, affordable family event.
Sundance, Wyo. is also the location for the Youth Rough Stock Rodeo on July 28, 5:30 p.m. There will be mutton bustin’, wild pony riding, and mini bulls. Pre-entry is required and you can do that at http://www.crookcountyfair.com/contest-entry-forms.

The 112th Annual Faith Stock Show and Rodeo will be Aug. 9-12. There are so many events going on that I’m afraid I’ll miss something, so find them on their Facebook page to get a listing. I guarantee, if you can’t have fun at Faith, you can’t have fun anywhere.
The 3rd Annual Tom Horn Days is Aug. 12-14 at the Selle Ranch, Bosler, Wyo. On the 12th is the ranch rodeo at 5 p.m.; on the 13th is the pasture team roping and pasture ranch broncs at 10 a.m.; on the 14th is cowboy church, breakfast, stray gathering and muley roping.
