The Nacogdoches Pro Rodeo and Steer Show is coming up this Thursday through Saturday at the Expo Center.  The rodeo starts at 8 nightly, however, we would encourage you to get there by 7 to see the championship mutton bustin' competition.  

Each night, 15 youngsters from 3-7 years in age will try their best to stay on the back of a sheep.  The deadline for registration was Friday, March 17th at Boot Barn in Nacogdoches.  It's great to report that over 100 kids got entered for the chance to complete, however, that does mean that not everyone will get the chance to ride.

We will use Monday and Tuesday to contact parents and guardians of those chosen to verify that their kid(s) will be able to ride.  In the event that a child is unable to ride on the selected night, an alternate will be chosen.

Here are the results of the random drawing:
