This October, the chute opens on the Shawn Dubie Memorial Rodeo at Laramie County Community College.
The rodeo begins with slack at 1 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 10, and performance at 7 p.m. Slack continues at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 11, and performance starts at 7 p.m. The finals performance is at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 12. All rodeo action takes place at the LCCC indoor arena.
Rodeo competitors from 13 colleges and universities are heading for Cheyenne to take part in the last rodeo of the fall semester for the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association’s Central Rocky Mountain Region.
Admission for the rodeo performances is $10 for adults, $5 for students, seniors and the military, and free for LCCC students and children younger than 5 years old. Three-day passes are available for $20 for adults and $12 for students and seniors. Admission to slack is free.
Proceeds from the rodeo will be put toward a scholarship fund established in the memory of Shawn Dubie. Shawn was a saddle bronc rider from Alpena, Michigan, by way of Rock Springs, Wyoming, who rode for LCCC on a rodeo scholarship.
Recipients of the Shawn Dubie Memorial Scholarship must attend LCCC, actively participate on the LCCC Rodeo Team and maintain a 2.0 grade point average. This academic year, the scholarship was split and awarded to two student-athletes, Levi Brott and Chance Englebert.
