Right around the corner are the big days of June 4-5 when Conrad celebrates the Conrad Lions Club 71st annual Whoop-Up Trail Days Celebration.
Getting an early start on a weekend of activity will be the Singing Sons of Beaches. Sponsored by the Pondera Arts Council (PAC), the trio of entertainers will perform at the Orpheum Theatre/Wiegand Auditorium on June 2. They will have two shows, one at 6 p.m. and the other at 8 p.m. In between the shows, the Conrad Whoop-Up Queen will be announced.
Leading into the weekend will be the fifth annual Whoop-Up golf tournament at the Pondera Golf Club.
Players in the four-person scramble will tee it up at 10:30 a.m. on Friday. There are lots of prizes, food and music by Harry and Lloyd to follow the tournament. There is still time to get a team together, call the PGC at 278-3402 for more information.
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.
