RODEO: Hawkins turns in fastest ride

The Forestburg Rodeo, dubbed “The Biggest Little Rodeo in Texas,” took place on Friday and Saturday in conjunction with the 34th annual Forestburg Watermelon Festival.
The United Professional Rodeo Association and Texas Cowboys Rodeo Association served as the governing bodies, and more than $4,600 in prize money was given.
The Forestburg Riding Club put on performances both nights.
Big L Rodeo of Rubottom, Okla., provided the stock for all of the events.
Big L still has two rodeos remaining in Oklahoma before the regular season comes to a close.
There were additional events in junior barrels, calf scramble and double mugging; however, those events weren’t reported to The Bowie News.
Here are the final reported results from the two-day event.
