Gillette cowboy Kyle Callaway showed the nine other competitors how to steer wrestle Thursday night and they had better not have blinked or they would have missed his clinic for it only took him only 3.99 seconds. His quick time brought a loud cheer from the near capacity audience. Scroll down to see more including Tanner Aus's score of 83 in Bareback.

Corey Navarre, of Weatherford Oklahoma, "bails off" after 8-seconds riding the Train as in "Thomas the Train" for the highest evening score of 83. Scroll down to see more of Corey's ride and check back here to see more photos from Wednesday's performance of the 81st Sheridan WYO Rodeo.

With the mud a flying from the recent downpour some of the Sankey Rodeo Company rodeo stock was paraded around the arena in the sinking sunlight prior to the start of the First PRCA Rodeo Performance of the 81st Sheridan WYO Rodeo on Wednesday evening making for a great photo opportunity.

Brock Bomar from Sheridan will be one of five athletes and the only runner from Wyoming who will be attending the North American Final in Hershey, PA in August. Brock is shown here with the first place ribbons he won at the Wyoming State Meet in the 50 and 200 meter dash. At the Hershey National meet Brock will be competing in the 9-10 age group of the 200 meter dash on August 6th.

It was a fun day, there was food, free pop, chances to try out many different firearms and look thru some quality optics. The weather cooperated and it was sunny and warm for most of the day. They had an exhibition shotgun shooter from Benelli come in and he put on a great show for the crowd!

Thanks,
