Justin Thigpen, from Waycross, will be one of the cowboys competing in the Baxley Lions Club’s Second Annual PCA Rodeo this week. As of October 1, he is ranked Number Ten All Around, Number Eight in Calf Roping and Number Eight in Steer Wrestling. He needs to remain in the top 15 in these events in order to compete in the PCA Finals Rodeo in January. Justin has previously been ranked Number One Over All nationally and will be riding hard to improve his scores in the final weeks of this year’s season. Come cheer him on.
The Rodeo will be held on Friday and Saturday, October 12 and 13 at the Lions Club Fairgrounds in Baxley. The gates open at 6:00 p.m. and the Grand Rodeo Parade will begin at 7:30. Admission is $10.00. Age five and under are free. Come early, eat your supper here, buy souvenirs from the vendors and enjoy a wonderful family outing. The Lions Club motto is: We Serve.
