Bull riding show at the Motley Fair, wings at the June Fest
Approximately 1,200 bull riding fans came out for the first-ever bull riding bash held at the Motley Fairgrounds June 17, one of the featured events at last weekend’s Motley Fair. Meech Bucking Bulls in Nimrod and Great Frontier Bullriding produced the event, which was sanctioned by Midwest Bull Riders Association and National Federation of Professional Bull Riders. Brandon Wren from Oklahoma was the announcer for the event. The 25 competing riders hailed from several states, including Nebraska, Texas, Wisconsin, Iowa and Minnesota. There were five qualified rides and Coy Thorson, Fergus Falls, took home the buckle and first-place prize money. Meech Bucking Bulls and the Meech family appreciate all of the local sponsors who helped make this event possible.
