Sunrise

Over the Sandhills

View of the carnival

At the Central States Fair in Rapid City, South Dakota

The Republican booth at the Fair had nice informed representatives.

Other knowledgeable people were manning a booth comparing Creation and Evolution.

However, in the Democratic booth the lights were on but nobody was home. I don't think they wanted to face any music
that they didn't know the tune to. :wink:

Another view of the midway

Rodeo action

Tying a calf

Done

This one got away.

Good solid run

Big calf was hard to throw

A famous roper had bad luck and didn't make the catch.

Still on top

But not for long

Blurry bucking

Nearly airborne

My two traveling companions

Rode this contraption to get airborne, too.

is that fred whitfield who missed his calf?

Yes, Fred got a big hearty Black Hills welcome but had bad luck and missed his calf. It seemed like all night at the rodeo, the bigger the build-up by the announcer the worse luck the contestant would have.

I love the Central States Fair!!! Last year the whole south side of rapid had an electrical outage.... Shut everything down but the beer garden..... It was a hoot listening to the band. I listened in my trailier to the song Put your right foot here put your left foot here.... I've never made it over there, but someday I will...
