Rodeo Central
2001 Upcoming IGRA Rodeos - One's we'll definitely be at are highlighted, others as we feel like it.  I've added the schedule for the WRCA (working ranch cowboys association) Rodeos.  This group, to me, epitomizes what cowboys, rodeos, and the western way of life are all about.  I'd rather go to one of the ranch rodeos than some of the over-commercialized rodeos.

             Visit the IGRA country store.

We are always happy to meet up with friends at the rodeos we go to.  Even glad to
share a room to make it more affordable to come experience a gay rodeo.  If you are
interested, give a shout.
