Cancellations, postponements, clinics, deadlines
Another beautiful weather week. It’s been a little breezy a few days, but that’s just April being itself. I can’t believe May is here. What happened to this year already? It’s seemed like the longest and the shortest, depending on how you look at it.
I have some more cancellations and postponements, so here goes. Cancelled: Rocky Mountain Leather Trade Show in Sheridan, Wyo.; Corn Palace Stampede Rode, Mitchell, S.D.; Oglala Lakota Nation Fair, Powwow, and Rodeo, Pine Ridge, S.D.; Glendive (MT) Fair and Rodeo and Breakaway Roping, June 11; Calgary Stampede. The 99th Greeley Stampede PRCA Rodeo has been cancelled but they are hoping to reschedule for a later date. The GiddyUp Open Horse show in Rapid City, S.D. has been postponed to May 16, call 605-478-1598 for information.
Cheyenne Frontier Days is still a go as of now. All the rodeo performances and concerts are still scheduled. I hope they can get it done. I can’t even imagine being on one of those committees and making the decisions they have to make.
Congratulations Dana Ingalls on the soon-to-be on-line BreakawayReport.com. It will go live on May 13. With breakaway being a very fast growing event this will be a great way to stay on top of what’s going on in it.
