Brady, TX- Its once again rodeo time in Brady, TX as the McCulloch County 4-H Clubs have teamed up to bring the Lester Meier Open Rodeo back to town. August 21, and 22, 2009 will bring two exciting evenings of bareback riding, bull riding, team, breakaway and tie down roping, barrel racing, steer wrestling, specialty acts and other surprises to the G. Rollie White Arena just west of Brady on Ranch Road 2028 (W 17th Street).
County Extension Agent, Vance Christie said, "Our 4-H members and Adult Leaders have been working very diligently to arrange to bring a quality family entertainment event to the Brady Area. I look for a great turnout and something for everyone during the event, and with separate activities each night, you won't want to miss any of the action."
In addition to the traditional rodeo events, nontraditional cowboy activities for all ages will be included. As always the mutton busting will provide tough competition for the youngest contestants, calf scrambles will be held for the middle age group wanting a chance to compete during the show, and brand new this year, older contestants can enter a team in the steer saddling.
Full concessions and various vendors will be set up with crafts, jewelry and other items for spectators. Box and general admission tickets are available at Brady Home Health. You can stop by 1700 S. Bridge Stree or call 325-597-3994 to reserve your box seats at $15, or purchase adult general admission for $8 with youth admission set at $4.
All the activities will kick off at 8:00 pm nightly, and you may contact the McCulloch County AgriLife Extension Office at 325-597-1295 for more information.
