A large crowd is expected to converge at the Rising Sun Turf Club, Arima Park Arena West Coast Berbice where the Rising Sun Rodeo Committee stages its Rodeo.
The Vaqueros and other participants from overseas and other parts of Guyana, including far flung interior areas have all arrived for what is expected to be a breathtaking and action packed day of action. Over the past week the organisers used the opportunity to formalize preparations and made sure every system is in place. The venue was also tested with a few trial runs using mostly local cowboys and according to coordinator and President of The Rising Sun Rodeo Committee, Fazal Habibulla, all systems are in place.
According to Habibulla, he and his West Berbice Posse, which makes up the bulk of the local brigade from the area, were also in action at the Rising Sun Turf during the week and are well prepared to defend their turf.
Over 12 different activities in the various categories are slated to be staged and millions of dollars in prizes including cash, trophies and other memorabilia are up for grabs.
Among the activities listed to be held are steer roping, bare back broncos which will also see the females getting into action. There are also male and female barrel race, wild cow milking, calf roping, wild bull riding, Saddle bronco and the popular Tug O War event and the Rodeo King competition. The day’s action is set to kick off at 11:00hrs.
A number of business entities have come on board to help sponsor the event including Banks DIH Limited, Mohammed Shariff Cattle Ranch, General Construction Limited and Racing Stables, Trophy Stall Bourda Market, Jumbo Jet Businesses, Ainlim, Hand In Hand, Inshan Bacchus Trucking Service and Business enterprise, Kamal Seeberran, Kalim Goolab, Mahendra Dookie, Sunil Saran, Tojo Seocharran, Jai Seegoobin, Neville Budhan, Colin Elcock Delmur Business entity, Chester Fry of Bush Lot, Hablaw Meat Centre and Rising Sun cattle Ranch among others.
