Mutton busters get ready for Lions Club 71st Whoop-Up

05_mutton7333Parents and Grandparents, it’s time to load those cameras and prepare for the sheep and steer riding events at the 71st Annual Whoop-Up Trail Days Rodeo sponsored by the Conrad Lions Club.

Buckaroos can sign up for these popular events at Gustafson Law Offices, 400 South Main, Suite 101. The phone  number is 278-7521.

There are no entry fees for the sheep riders, but they must be 50 pounds or under and complete an Entry Blank with attached Release signed by both parents before riders will be permitted to hop on their sheep for either the Saturday afternoon performance, June 4 or the Sunday afternoon performance, starting at 1 p.m.

There will be up to 20 entries for each day’s performance and they will be assigned on a first come basis. T-shirts designed by local artist Bob Moritz will be presented to each Mutton Buster after their big ride or crash, whatever the case may be.

Each day’s rodeo performances will also feature Steer Riders who must be between the ages of 8-13 and they will jackpot their $10 entry fees to be awarded after Sunday’s performance.

They are also required to complete an entry blank with attached release signed by both parents. So head ’em up and move ’em out...it’s time to rodeo!
