There is real local rodeo event action and family fun open to participants and free to spectators taking place every Wednesday evening at the Surface Creek Saddle Club at the corner of Main and Cedar Mesa Road.

The SCSC Gymkhana 2017 Saddle Series is happening very Wednesday evening through Aug. 2 at the arena east of Cedaredge.

This week's performances will mark the half way point in the ten-gymkhana 2017 series. Last week's events got off to a special start with a grand entry featuring Delta County Fair royalty: Teneal Braslin and and Whitney Whoolley presented the colors as the national anthem was performed.

The more than 50 participants in this year's series are competing for some nice saddles in the 8-13, 14-18, and adult categories. The ages seven and under kids will win buckles for first place. There are also prizes for second through fifth place in each age group. Events include the barrel race, pole bending, flags, and a special fun race.

The concession stand is in full operation during the events so families don't have to be sorry about skipping dinner or packing a cooler to make the signup deadline. Sign-ups are 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Last week there was a barbecue pork sandwich dinner entree available for hungry rodeo fans.

The horse-and-rider gymkhana events are for all ages, from youngsters who need help getting into the saddle on up to adults. The grand entry is scheduled for 6:45 each evening. Last week's gymkhana was staged with help by 4-H'ers of the Best of the West 4-H Club.

Anyone wanting additional information about the series can call Kacy at 970-985-8443, or Stacey at 970-901-2351.
