(Riverton, Wyo.) – The Fremont County Fair & Rodeo Royalty Clinic is coming up next week and sponsors say anyone who has dreamed of meeting Miss Rodeo Wyoming, or perhaps wearing a rodeo royalty crown some day, should attend.
The current Miss Rodeo Wyoming, Holly Kennedy, will be at the fairgrounds in Riverton on Tuesday, July 30th, from 4 to 5:30 at the Little Wind Center (formerly known as the 4H lunchroom). “All young ladies and gents between the ages of 11 and 23 are cordially invited to attend the Royalty Clinic, said Jeanne Carper, the chair of the Fremont County Fair Royalty Committee. “Please plan to attend and learn some fun facts about Rodeo Royalty and what it takes to be a rodeo Queen, Junior Queen, Princess or an Ambassador for the Fremont County Fair.” Miss Rodeo Wyoming isn’t the only royalty that will attend, Carper said. The 2013 Fremont County Fair Queen-Alexis Ballard, Lady in Waiting- Devon Burrell, Junior Queen – Cara Carper and Princess – Danyka Ingalls will all be there for an afternoon of learning and fun.
Carper said pizza and pop would be served at the clinic. Those who attend the clinic will also have a chance to join the current Fremont County Fair Royalty at the annual contest to decide who will wear the crowns for the 2014 fair.
This year’s Fair Royalty Contest is August 24th at the CWC Equine Facility off of North 8th West. The contest includes horsemanship, personality, a short speech, a written test on the Fair and Rodeo, appearance, modeling and impromptu questions, Carper said.
