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 Associationâ€™s 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 CHSRAâ€™s 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 yearâ€™s donation will bring the total funds raised from the last 16 races to over $105,000.
