Rodeo celebrates milestone

For 10 years the Randolph County Sheriffs Rodeo has offered the community a fun-filled event over the Fourth of July Weekend and its also served as a fundraiser for much needed equipment for the department. 

“We have been able to purchase a lot of things for the department that we would not have been able to afford if it hadn’t been for the Rodeo,” Randolph County Sheriff David Cofield said. “It takes a lot of work to make this event happen and we couldn’t do it without the numerous volunteers and sponsors that make it possible.”

This year’s rodeo will be July 5 and 6. 

“We are still ironing out some of the details,” Randolph County Chief Deputy Billy Lane said. “But I know we are going to have a concert after the rodeo both nights. We just aren’t sure who is playing just yet.”
The Randolph County Sheriff’s Rodeo is a production of 4L & Diamond S Rodeo. 

Founded in 1985 by champion calf roper and steer wrestler Charlie Lowry, the company has grown from five small productions its first year to producing 25 events a year. 4L Rodeo host PRCA, IPRA, NIRA and high school rodeos and rough stock schools. 
In 2009 Lowry widened his vision for 4L Rodeo Company by becoming partners with David Simpson, Diamond S Bucking Bulls, Weatherford, Texas forming the 4L and Diamond S Rodeo Company.  The new company has provided stock for numerous rodeos such as Cheyenne, Omaha, Odessa, San Antonio and Fort Worth.  4L & Diamond S Rodeo have provided bulls for the PRCA Xtreme Bulls as well as the Wrangler National Final Rodeo in Las Vegas.

Tickets for the 10th Annual Randolph County Sheriff’s Rodeo are $10 and may be purchased in advance at the Randolph County Courthouse.
