The Cinnabar Mountain Playdays youth ended their season of rodeo Aug. 5 at the Grant County Fairgrounds in John Day.

There were 33 participants in the afternoon event competing in events such as barrel races, figure 8, goat tying and dummy roping. The rodeo ended the year with 41 members.

“This club is run by volunteers, and we are always looking for additional help with arena, planning the series, advertising and new ideas,” said board member Janet Plocharsky.

She said if anyone is interested in helping out the youth and their horses, they can contact a member of the board.

“We love to hear from the community,” she said.

Year-end results will be announced at the awards banquet, set for Oct. 18 at the Mt. Vernon Community Hall, the time to be announced.

All members, volunteers, donors, friends and family are invited to attend.
