Crowds enjoy county rodeo
HOUSTON – The crowd turned out this weekend to see quilts, canned goods, a buckaroo rodeo and cowboys competing for cold hard cash.
Chickasaw County Ag Days wrapped up three days of fun with a ranch rodeo at the Chickasaw County Agri-Center.
“I was very please with the crowds and the event in general,” said Angie Abrams, Chickasaw County 4-H director and Ag Days coordinator. “We didn’t have any major glitches and I think everyone had a great time.”
Abrams said there has been a push for some time to develop a Chickasaw County Fair and this past weekend’s event may have been the first step.
“I think this showed there is interest in doing something like this on a bigger scale,” said Abrams. “We will meet in a week or two and get with everyone and we what happens.”
Abrams said the Buckaroo Rodeo for kids drew a good crowd on Friday night. She said felt the Celebrity Sorting on Friday night was well attended.
The Chickasaw Journal’s Lisa Voyles took First Place in Celebrity Sorting Saturday night with a time of 13.939-seconds. Linda Griffin took second place and James Pettit earned a third place ribbon.
“Some of our celebrities knew what they were doing and some didn’t,” said Abrams. “I want to point out our women did a lot better than the guys, but everyone had a lot of fun.”
Abrams said she was impressed with the exhibits that went on display on Thursday.
“The quilts and needlework just blew me away,” said Abrams. “We also had everything from unique candle holders to canned meat in a jar.
“It was all the stuff you would see at a county fair,” she said. “Chickasaw County has a lot of good cooks and some very talented craftsmen.”
Abrams also thanked the volunteers who worked the event and the Chickasaw County Agri-Center Committee.
“A lot of people worked hard to make this weekend happen,” said Abrams. “This is a great event for our community and all of Chickasaw County.”
