Rodeo + watermelons = down-home fun
The Bad Company Rodeo production begins with a rider posting the colors astride a bull.
STOCKDALE -- Excitement and music was in the air as cowboys competed in events such as bullriding, calf roping, ranch saddle bronc riding, and more, at the 67th annual Stockdale Watermelon Jubilee Rodeo.
“Expect the unexpected” best sums up the atmosphere when man versus beast or the antics of the rodeo clowns livened up the arena for two nights in Stockdale. The rodeos June 17-18 began the 2011 tour of the Bad Company Rodeo.
This year’s Jubilee was dedicated in honor of the late Bennie Wolff, whose family was recognized prior to the first night’s performance.
John Wayne Schultz, a contestant on Season 10 of “American Idol,” not only competed in the team roping event, but sang the national anthem Saturday night.
Preshow performances included the Comal County Sheriff’s Posse Wranglers Drill Team and the crowning of Halie Boyd as Miss Rodeo Stockdale.
Children had the opportunity to win prizes in the ever-popular mutton bustin’ contest and the calf scramble.
The Stockdale Watermelon Jubilee is held the third weekend in June.
