The Nacogdoches Pro Rodeo and Steer Show is coming March 27th-29th at the Nacogdoches Expo and Convention Center.  One of the big draws for the annual event is the KICKS 105 Mutton Bustin'.  

Each evening at 7 pm, 10 kids try riding sheep for points.  The longer you stay on, the higher your score. Of course, you can rack up bigger scores with style points.  Registrations are being taken now at the Boot Barn in the Northview Plaza in Lufkin.  Deadline to enter is noon on Monday, March 24th.  We will announce the 30 riders on Tuesday morning, March 25th at 7:30 during the Merrell in the Morning Show.
