District 3, the “Thundering Three,” California High School Rodeo Association, has sent out a message for volunteers to show up at the Lincoln Rodeo Arena this weekend. It will be a work-weekend in preparation for the second half of the 2011-2012 rodeo season. Both varsity and junior varsity competitors will resume their quest for rodeo excellence and a shot at thousands of dollars in college scholarship money. Competing in 13 different events divided into three divisions – girls, boys, and mixed – the riding, roping, and wrangling will begin Jan. 14 and run through Jan. 15. CHSRA was founded in 1970, and is open to any high school student in a California high school. Although it is not a recognized high school sport, participants are required to carry at least a 2.0 grade-point-average and cannot be failing in any subject. Rodeos are held each month in nine separate districts. Points are awarded and accumulate throughout the year. Each district’s top competitors advance, and can go on to state, and from there can qualify for nationals. There will also be an international invitational rodeo held this summer in Fallon, Nev. The events are as follows: Girls – pole bending, barrel racing, breakaway roping, goat tying, cutting. Boys – bareback, saddle bronc, bull riding, steer wrestling, tie down roping, cutting. Team roping (header, healer). Visit for more information. CHSRA District 3 Lincoln Sponsors Latest: Golden State Collision Centers Inc., McDonald’s, Boomer Dirt Work, and Superior Livestock Supply
