Readers wrtie: Rodeo doings

The second weekend of August will once again find McIver Arena filled with rodeo excitement. The 34th annual Truckee Championship Rodeo and Western Week are set for Aug. 7-10. Kids Day and Cowboy Poetry kick off the excitement on the Aug. 7, Team Penning on the 8th and the Rodeo on the 9th and 10th. Junior Horsemen will once again be serving up their barbecue and dance after the rodeo on Saturday. Live music will be performed by Johnny U and Cowboy Company. Information on events can be found at truckeerodeo.org or tdhorsemen.org on the information page. Tickets can be purchased at The American Mail Center, Truckee Chamber of Commerce, Tahoe Donner Equestrian Center and D bar M in Reno.

In an effort to give back to the community the Horsemen would like to hear from youth groups and non-profits interested in running the food booths both Saturday and Sunday. There are three booths available for one or both days. Groups would sell hamburgers and hotdogs supplied and cooked by the rodeo. There would be no cost to the respective group and they would receive a percentage of their sales. If your group is interested please contact the Horsemen at tdhorsemen@sbcglobal.net or call the rodeo phone at 530-432-2409.

We hope the community will come out and support the Horsemen and enjoy the 34th annual Truckee Championship Rodeo.
