California High School Rodeo Returns To Cattle Call Arena

By Chris Furguson
The California High School Rodeo Association, District 8, held their second Rodeo event at the Brawley Cattle Call Arena on April 2-3, 2011.
The CHSRA District 8 consists of high school athletes from many communities, including the Imperial Valley, Riverside, Orange, San Diego, and portions of Los Angeles and San Bernardino Counties.  District 8′s athletes also include Erin Wilson of Brawley, Savannah Mamer of Holtville, and Reilly McFadden of El Centro.
Brawley’s facility also played host to a CHSRA event in January.
“We would like to thank the City of Brawley, The Cattle Call Rodeo Committee, John Hannon Farms, Gold Cross Ambulance, and The Wilson and Mamer families for their support,” said Tracey Scott, spokesperson for the CHSRA District 8.
Rodeo events showcased during the two day affair included Bareback and Saddle Bronc Riding, Pole Bending, Tie Down Roping, Breakaway Roping, Steer Wrestling, Team Roping, Goat Tying, Barrel Racing and Bull Riding.
Results for the Rodeo Events will be available online at their website, www.chsradist8.com.
The sport of Rodeo has been a big part of Brawley’s culture and heritage since the first one in the 1950s.  The first Cattle Call Rodeos were held at the city’s Warne Field.
A few years later, a group of locals chose to construct the Cattle Call arena at its current location, in the southwest portion of the city.
Now, the Cattle Call Rodeo, and its week’s worth of events, brings in tens of thousands of people to the city during the first week of November.
The Cattle Call Arena has also been the focal point for several recent events, including a charity walk and a professional bike race.  The Arena will also see several other events in the coming weeks, such as a bike safety demonstration, a concert for Cesar Chavez, and a boxing charity event.
