Cheyenne, Wyo. - After several months delay, the Shawn Dubie Memorial Rodeo is kicking off this weekend.
Last October, two horses on LCCC's campus were euthanized due to an unknown illness affecting the horses so the school postponed the rodeo.
Now, following months of planning, college riders and ropers from all of the region will compete slack events taking place Friday and Saturday morning before the main events.
LCCC's head rodeo coach Beau Clark says his riders handled the changes well “and they're excited for it this week."
The Shawn Dubie Memorial Rodeo begins at 7 p.m. on Friday, Mar. 2, with Military Appreciation Day in the LCCC Arena.
On Saturday, Mar. 3, the performance begins at 7 p.m. with Cheyenne Frontier Days Volunteer Appreciation Day. Slack will begin at 9 a.m.
The champions' challenge begins at 11 a.m. on Sunday, Mar. 4.
General Admission tickets are $10, and for Military, Seniors & Youth (11-17) they run $5.
