The Fort Hays (Kan.) State University Rodeo is this weekend, and I’m surrounded by my old haunts at my alma mater.
I’m looking forward to the Central Plains Region action, but I’m also looking forward to seeing some old friends, no matter their school allegiance — it kind of comes with the territory of having a wife who was part of the rodeo program at Panhandle State University for so many years and by mine having written about all those Oklahoma schools when I was working in Oklahoma City.
The only negative to the weekend was the weather. Snow and wind made for a miserable Friday, so miserable, in fact, that Friday’s competition was postponed. It means a lot of making up in a day and a half at Doug Phillip Arena.
But it’s still going to be a lot of fun.
