Rodeo In Bible Grove This Weekend
Once again in less than a month the little town of Bible Grove will be inhabited by more people than its original occupants. This coming weekend, September 12 and 13 will be the third annual Bible Grove Rodeo, sponsored by the Bar-B Saddle Club and the D Bar D Rodeo Company from Elsberry.
For the past three years the Bar-B Saddle Club has had a rodeo. They have been a great success because of the hard work and efforts of this small community and the donations of the local sponsors who have contributed generously. It has been a day and night work schedule for many of the club members.
The first rodeo was just for fun. Last year they hired the rodeo contractor and this year the rodeo will be MRCA/URA sanctioned. Bob and Linda Daniels of Elsberry, will be putting on the rodeo. They have had rodeos in LaBelle, Macon, and have done the bull buckout in Kirksville for the past few years.
There will be kidsí games both nights starting at 6:00 p.m.
A Buckle Presentation will be held Friday night and the horse give-away during intermission on Saturday night. There will also be a 50/50 drawing and other raffle prizes.
The kitchen will be open serving food and drinks. A dance with the Harvest Band featuring Lonnie and Jessica Erwin will be held Friday and Saturday nights.
