Junior rodeo coming to McMinnville

For the first time in Oregon rodeo history, the Junior Roughstock World Finals Tour will stop in McMinnville. The Yamhill County Fair sponsored the event in partnership with the Pro-West Rodeo Association, bringing a National Tour event to the Beaver State July 31 and August 1-2.

Local competitors are encouraged to register for the 24 slots available in the junior contest. The event features both bareback and saddlebronc competitions. Eight kids will ride on each rodeo day.

National rodeo athletes will also compete at the McMinnville rodeo, as the 24 contestants vie for four Regional qualifying spots. The top-two finishers in each division advance to Regionals.

Sponsors are needed for the rodeo; roughly $5,000 in fundraising is still required. If interested, contact Kim Cooper at 503-515-4385.
