Rodeo time just around the corner

In addition, the rodeo will have a new starting time.

In the past, the rodeo has started at 8 p.m., but this year's event gets underway at 7:30 p.m.; gates open at 5:30 p.m. each day.

The association has added 380 seats to the arena above the bull chutes, providing prime seats for fans who want to pay a few dollars extra. Seats overlooking the bull chutes cost $20.

Returning attractions

Rodeo clown Rudy Burns and announcer Jim Poole will return for another run in Baker. Last year's featured act, the All American Cowgirl Chicks, will join them.

"We've never had anybody that I can recall that made such an impact on the crowd as the Cowgirl Chicks," Todd said. "They touched their audience. They were involved with the audience.

"They worked the area prior to the rodeo for us. They went out and did a meet-and-greet for us at Ace Hardware. We are working with Ace Hardware to do another meet-and-greet."
