The Mid-Plains Community College Rodeo Team is raffling a handmade saddle to raise money for travel and other expenses incurred by members of the club.
"We travel extensively and when you figure the costs of transporting five to six horses, 9-10 kids, meals, fuel and other costs it can get pretty expensive," said Mike Janecek, MPCC Rodeo Team faculty advisor.
The saddle, generously sponsored by Cowboy Connection in North Platte, has an estimated value of nearly $1,000. Tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20. They can be purchased at the college's Welcome Centers or from rodeo team members, coach Dustin Elliott, or Janecek.
The winner will be announced at the MPCC Rodeo Team's mid-Winter social in February. For more information, contact Janecek at (308) 535-3645 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
