(A) We took a year off last year and we’re excited to bring it back to the community, Friday and Saturday, July 16th and 17th. We’re ready to bring back some of the rankest horses and some of the rankest bulls that Baker City is accustomed to getting. We are excited. It’s a new year and we are all ready to get out and do something. It’s going to be a great night tonight and tomorrow, so come out and enjoy a family fun event.
(Q) What are the payouts for this weekend’s event?
(A) There’s $25,000 in the pot for Friday night for the bronc riders and $25,000 pay out for the bull riding, and that brings you the top guys from the Northwest and all over. We have a list of contestants that are going to come, and they are excited to be back in Baker City and show Baker City that they are top notch, and they are going to put on some great rides.
We are going to have NFR bucking horses and NFR bulls. Top notch guys get top notch stock.
