Chadron State rodeo this weekend

csc

Mid-September means it’s time for the annual Chadron State College rodeo. It will bring lots of cowboys and cowgirls to town this weekend. There were 498 entries last weekend at the Laramie County Community College in Cheyenne, where the 2021-22 season kicked off for contestants from the dozen schools that make up the Central Rocky Mountain Region.

The official performances will be at 7 p.m. Friday and 1 p.m. Saturday at the Dawes County Fairgrounds. There also will be large sessions of “slack” starting at 1 p.m. Friday and 8 a.m. Saturday to handle all of the entries.

The grand finale, or championship go-round, will be at 10 a.m. Sunday. That’s when the top 10 contestants in each of the nine events from the previous sessions will vie for top honors. Admission will be $6 per person for each rodeo performance. There’s no charge for CSC students, employees and Golden Eagles, or CSC retired personnel.

Cowboy church also will take place in the grandstand at the fairgrounds at 8 a.m. Sunday. It’s open to the public without charge.

Another special event will be a concert featuring country and western singer Chancey Williams, a Wyoming native and former pro rodeo saddle bronc rider, at 8:30 p.m. Saturday at the Fairgrounds. Tickets for it will be available at the concession stand during the rodeo. They are $25 each.

Also among those helping make the CSC rodeo click will be announcer Sugar Ray Quinn of Rapid City, and bull fighters Gus Kronberg and Rowdy Moon, a former CSC bareback rider.

Spud Creek Rodeo of Interior, S.D., will furnish the rough stock and the Allen and Beth Good family of Long Valley, S.D., will provide the livestock for the timed events.

Three Chadron State contestants were among the placewinners at the LCCC rodeo. Tayle Brink, a graduate student from Reva, S.D., was fourth in the first go-round of barrel racing and second in the finals to finish third overall among the 80 contestants. Shailey McAbee of Hyannis was sixth in both runs and sixth overall.

In addition, Brianna Williams of Buffalo, S.D., and Brink caught their calves in 3.9 and 4.6 seconds to finish third and fifth, respectively, in breakaway roping, which had 92 entries.
