Curry County to host 2009 High School Rodeo

Curry County will host the 2009 New Mexico High School Rodeo Finals, according to a news release from the county.

More than 100 cowboys and cowgirls from across the state are expected to attend the June event, the release said.

The county learned last week it had been awarded the bid, Administrative Services Coordinator Connie Harrison told county commissioners on Tuesday.

County officials plan to host the event at the Special Events Center, which is currently under construction.

The county will team with the Clovis/Curry County Chamber of Commerce to put on the event, Harrison said.
