Saturday's slack barrels and tailgate

Saturday is filled with rodeo events in conjunction with the Virden Indoor Rodeo. Following Manitoba Calf Ropers in the morning, Rodeo Slack competition filled up a good part of the early day. Those cowboys and cowgirls were gunning for a place in the Sunday shootout.

Meanwhile a Tailgate party was underway right outside the curling rink. There's cow milking, a bouncy barn, and mechanical bull riding as well as Martin Finnie Band and several other live entertainers such as Prairie Roots (Nicole Wilson and Sheena Blanchard).

It was a great place to eat, with burgers and a bacon and beans dish to go with. Tasty!

In the outdoors barrel racing ring, 3-D barrels for all age groups on a cool breezy day, just right for running barrels.
