POTEET -- One of Mexico’s idols of the bullring, Matador Enrique Delgado, will be at Poteet Lions Arena Saturday, May 7, at 6:30 p.m. as part of the anniversary celebration weekend for Cowboy Fellowship of Atascosa County. This is the eighth anniversary of Cowboy Fellowship.

The first service was held in the Atascosa County Show Barn. Since that time, the congregation has built a facility on F.M. 3350. Pastor Pete Pawelek shares God’s Word from the pulpit, and the Cowboy Fellowship Band provides the music each week. Many friendships have been formed and many lives have been eternally changed as a result of the ministries at Cowboy Fellowship.

This year’s anniversary event will showcase two styles of bullfighting -- traditional style, and rodeo freestyle bullfighting. Delgado, known by aficionados as “El Cicion de Monterrey” or “The Cyclone of Monterrey,” will perform a classic bullfight exhibition. Delgado has faced bulls in all of the major plazas in Mexico. During the performance, he will make a series of passes known as a “serpentine” as the bull charges while the matador makes a 360-degree turn and swirls his cape around his body.

Delgado refers to his style of bullfighting as “the ballet of strength.”

“The power and strength of the Toro, and the frailty of the matador standing still and controlling this power with a clock and a stick, this is the art of the spectacle,” Delgado said.

El Cicion has appeared in the Santa Maria Bullring in La Gloria, Texas, since 2004 for sold-out audiences.

By U.S. law, there cannot be blood or a kill at a bullfight. Delgado will remove a rose from the back of the bull at the end of each fight. He plans to fight three bulls of different sizes during the exhibition on May 7.

In addition, there will be an American freestyle bullfighting competition. Rodeo bullfighters will have 70 seconds to show their skills for a panel of judges. Prizes will be awarded to the best performance and to the crowd’s favorite bullfighter.

Admission to the bullfight will be $5 per person. Children 10 years and younger will be admitted free. Parking will be free and shuttles will be provided to the arena. No ice chests or food may be brought in. Concession stand will be available during the bullfight.

Area sponsors joining Cowboy Fellowship for this event are ABC Storage, Atascosa Family Crisis Center, Atascosa Livestock Exchange, Brohill Realty, Capital Farm Credit, Century 21 Realtors, Chili’s, Dornak Auto Parts, Lyssy & Eckel Feeds, Ramos Tires, Rock House Cafe, and Security State Bank.
