The Special Rodeo is a rodeo within a rodeo.
Scheduled for Thursday, June 16 at 6 p.m., in the middle of the California High School Rodeo Associationâs state finals week at the Tri-County Fairgrounds, the Special Rodeo focuses on giving cowboys and cowgirls with special needs a chance to compete in modified rodeo events.
The CHSRAâs Special Rodeo allows high school rodeo athletes to work one on one with children in a rodeo where all contestants become champions.
More than 290 runners registered for the 18th annual Bishop High Sierra Ultra-marathons, held on May 21, beginning and finishing at the Millpond Recreational Park.
Runners travelled from all over the United States, Canada, United Kingdom and Australia to participate in the 20-mile Fun Run, 50K, 50-mile and 100K events.
Proceeds from the race benefit the Northern Inyo Hospital Foundation, which will be very involved in projects at the new Hospital building. This yearâs donation will bring the total funds raised from the last 16 races to over $105,000.
