It sure got busy when the events started opening up! I’m sure proud of the committees that stepped up and did what it took to have their event. For those committees who didn’t feel that they could, I know you took all factors into consideration before making that very hard decision. I support both sides of it. It’s not an easy task to be on those committees.
Cancelled events include the Red Desert PRCA Rodeo, Rock Springs, Wyo.,; Burke Stampede Rodeo, Burke, S.D.; Culbertson (Mont.) NRCA Rodeo, Butte-Lawrence County Fair, Nisland, S.D.; Joe Wolters Clinic in Baker, Mont.

These are actually two seperate schools, so pay attention. The John Forbes Rodeo Schools are for all levels. The first one will be June 18-19 and will be for beginners. They will have both saddle bronc and bareback instruction, as Larry Sandvick is on board. For the kids/beginner clinic, the cost is free but wouldn’t mind some donations to feed the bucking stock. They will also provide the gear for the beginners if they don’t have any. They’re taking the younger kids for starting out on the spur board and bucking machine, just to give them a feel for each event. The focus is building confidence and having fun. They will get on some horses once the fundamentals are taught. The second school is for more experienced cowboys and they’ll start on the bucking horses at 10 a.m., June 20-21. This clinic will cost $400 and you’ll need to get ahold of them to let them know you’re coming. Call 307-631-6339 and leave a message, they’ll get back to you.
June 20, 9 a.m., there will be the KPH Arena Ranch Show. It’s double judged, so your one run will yield two seperate scores.

Call 307-680-5362 for info or go to http://www.kluzperformancehorses.com for details and directions. Don’t use GPS, you’ll end up lost.
