The Old Gang Returns to the Stonyford Rodeo
by Roy Stewart
The upcoming 2019 Stonyford Rodeo is shaping up to be a good one. The gang of performers who entertained at last year's 75th Anniversary rodeo are returning for the 76th outing on May 3, 4, and 5. Barrelman and Clown J. J. Harrison returns in his old role and also as our Specialty Act. Don Jesser and wife Anita return as our announcer and sound engineer. This will be Don's quarter-century anniversary announcing at our rodeo. The Bridwell Pro Rodeo Company (formerly Growney Bros), out of Red Bluff, returns as stock contractor. Rodeo fans know they can depend on the Bridwell Company to supply top-notch rodeo stock that will challenge the also top-notch professional cowboys to be at the top of their game and provide exciting rodeo action.
