ADA—MidSouth Youth Rodeo Cowboys Association is bringing the youth rodeo to the Pontotoc County Agri-plex Nov. 20 and 21.

Brenda Gilstrap, county marketing and tourism director, said it’s a great event for kids.

Nancy Barr, MRCA representative, said the rodeo will include four age groups: 6 and under, 7 to 9, 10 to 13 and 14 to 19.

“The rodeo will kick off at 9 a.m. and the entries for the rodeo will close at 8 a.m. Saturday morning,” Barr said.  “It will offer Free T-shirts for the contestants sponsored by Ada’s First Baptist Church, wrist band from Lazer Zone Family Fun Center and numerous gift certificates.”

She said youth who enter the rodeo do not have to be a member of MRCA but points for year end will not count for non-members.

Six all-around buckles will be up for grabs.

“There will also be a 4D Barrel Race on Nov. 19 sponsored by Cross Cut Cowboy Church to benefit the MRCA,” Barr said.
