Brawley – As a precursor to the upcoming professional rodeo in November, the Brawley Cattle Call Queen and Teen Queen Horse Competition will be held at the Brawley Cattle Call arena, Friday, October 13, 2013 at 6:00 p. m.
The competition is free to the public. The contestants will show the out–of-town, professional judges they can ride fast and well, execute sliding stops, spins, and carry a waving flag. They will also answer questions on the sport of rodeo and that demonstrate their equine depth of knowledge.
On Saturday, October 14, the queen competition moves indoors to the Barbara Worth Country Club where the girls will model the latest in Western evening gowns and answer impromptu questions.
One of the crowd’s favorites is the speech. Each girl will deliver a timed prepared dramatic speech they have worked weeks perfecting.
As entertainment between events, Brawley Work Wear, the valley’s premier western shop, will have local cowgirls modeling the newest styles in western, casual dress.
Doors open at 5:00 p.m. with cocktails at the no-host bar, prime rib dinner starts at 6:00, and the coronation will take place at 7.
A silent auction with goods donated from valley merchants will add to the festivities as will the dancing later in the evening.
