The Sunday performance is the 'championship round' and only the top ten in each event compete. Slack performances are held Fri and Sat mornings. The slack performances do not require a ticket, are less 'formal' and are composed of around 300 contestants that are not competing in one of the three main performances. Saturday night is the infamous 'Wild Ride.' Five competitors ride saddle broncs dressed up in any costume that they wish to conjure up. Only requirements are that they must have clothes on and no fireworks. Otherwise anything is free game. There have had brides dresses, harley riders, thong clad 'cowboys,' and female impersonators. Contact Coach Bronc Rumford or Assistant Coach Ross Russell if you have any questions. 785-628-4689
