Rodeo competitors were greeted by sell-out crowds at this year's Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair.

Back-to-back sellout days at the rodeo

People flocked to the Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair this weekend.

Despite some foul weather on Friday, the Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair managed to see sellout crowds for the next two days.

“The inclement weather on Friday night was unfortunate, however nice weather throughout the rest of the event drew enthusiastic crowds,” said Shannon Claypool, President of the Cloverdale Rodeo Exhibition Association. “We were especially thrilled with the back to back sell outs for the rodeo.”

At the country fair, the event featured the second annual Cowboy Cook-Off BBQ competition that brought the best BBQ masters from north to south to compete for $10,000 in prize money, and the World Freestyle Round-Up skateboarding competition that brought the world’s top skateboarders from 10 different countries together to compete in Surrey.

It was a day for the local amateurs in that contest, as Delta’s Ryan Brynelson took first place in the Amateur Freestyle, while Andy Anderson from White Rock took third.

Over in the rodeo ring, Chase Erickson (Helena Montana)  took first place in bareback riding, Dawson Jandreau (Kennebec, South Dakota) grabbed first spot for saddle bronc riding and Rylee McKenzie (St. Paul, Alberta) took top spot for ladies barrel racing.

Trey Benton of Rock Island, Texas nailed the bull riding for first place.

All blue ribbon winners in the rodeo took home more than $20,000.
