Greetings Rodeo Fans!

In February, our inter-district rodeo or Red Bluff Shoot Out as it is called, packed a powerful punch! Over 160 High School Rodeo members from Districts 1, 2 and 3 came together for a weekend of intense competition. District 1 dominated in most events except for the rough stock. Our own Adam Kammerer won the Bull Riding. Clayton Brum topped the Saddle Bronc Riding and Clayton Biglow won the Bareback Riding. District 1’s Colton Campbell won the All-Around Cowboy and District 2’s Gianna Cianfichi won the All-Around Cowgirl. Way to go Districts 1 and 2!

Last weekend our own District 3 held their March rodeo in Lincoln. Alexis Lincoln won the Sr. Girls breakaway average with a great time of 6.72 on two head! On Friday night, we had a fundraiser Breakaway Roping Jackpot. I think the calves had power packs on because they seemed to jet propel themselves to the end of the arena! We had a great time and raised some funds for our district.  

This month’s April rodeo will be the last rodeo for our Jr. High Division. They will receive their awards at the end of the Sunday rodeo. Dates for that are April 5-6. Thank you to all the sponsors who support District 3. We couldn’t do it without you! God bless and never give up.
