CHADRON – The Chadron State College Rodeo Team will host its annual Black Tie Calf Fry Saturday, Feb. 24, at 6 p.m. in the Student Center. Advance tickets are $15 each for adults and $20 at the door. In addition to dinner, the evening will include live music, a guest speaker, silent and live auctions of western decor, handmade leather items and art.
The event’s guest speaker will be Marvin Garrett, four-time world bareback champion, according to CSC Rodeo coach Dustin Luper.
Garrett, who was born in South Dakota, graduated from Hulett High School where he was a three-time state wrestling champion. He earned Rookie of the Year in 1984 and two years later qualified for the National Finals.
“I found a passion for bareback riding and just kept going,” he said.
Garrett, a member of the South Dakota and Wyoming Sports Halls of Fame and the ProRodeoHall of Fame, retired from the pro circuit in 2008 and is in his third year as the head rough stock coach for Gillette College. He is also the owner and operator of the Flying G ranch near Rosette, Wyoming, where he raises bucking horses, hosts camps and gives private lessons.
