Something a little different...

From left to right: Jackie Gibson, Miss Rodeo Oregon; Ally Bowden, Jefferson County Rodeo Princess; Robyn Belvoir, Jefferson County Rodeo Queen.

I did something Saturday night that I have never done before. I went to the coronation of the Columbia county rodeo court. I have a niece from Central Oregon who is a rodeo princess for Jefferson county. The Jefferson county court came over for the coronation out at the Columbia county fairgrounds, and we attended with them. So many beautiful girls dressed up in all their bling and cowboy hats. There was dinner, a silent auction, a live auction, and even dancing. We met girls from many rodeo courts, but I think the highlight was meeting the incoming Miss Rodeo Oregon, Jackie Gibson. Jackie is from Canby, Oregon. She will be having her coronation on January 31, 2009. I took the following information from the website

With the slump in the economy these young ladies are having a real struggle trying to raise the funds needed to participate as they should. If your interested in attending it would truly be helpful and a fun time could be had by all!
