Cow Chip Tossing, Barrel Racing, and Steer Lassoing - Sunday, March 1, 2015

Not to mention Pony Express Riding, Chuckwagon Races, and Horseshoes. All those events were NOT at the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo, they were all part of our Travelers World RV Park "Olympics" with a rodeo theme.

What an afternoon we had. The park closed the office at noon so all of us could participate in the shenanigans.

If only Mother Nature had cooperated. You will see in the photos that we are all snuggled into our winter clothes. Besides the cold, the rain made an appearance for part of the afternoon. Luckily our rodeo came complete with "campfires."

I'll let the pictures tell most of the story...

It took a big ladder to get a group photo!

After all the competitions, we had a cowboy supper of hot dogs with all the fixin's, chili, potato chips, and cookies. When the meal was over, medals were awarded to the top three teams. (Our team came in fourth out of six teams.) We were then treated to accordion music.

It was quite an eventful afternoon. I slept good on Sunday night.

Travel Bug out.
