Annual Quail Dobbs Memorial Rodeo slated for Saturday

Staff Writer

The 84th annual Big Spring Cowboy Reunion and Rodeo will kick off the last day of competition with a parade in downtown Big Spring.
“We would love to have everyone come and and be a part of a long standing parade which is being held in honor of one of our county's finest, Quail Dobbs,” said Derek Wash, a member of the rodeo committee.
The late Dobbs was a well-known and award winning rodeo clown who was very active in promoting the Big Spring Rodeo, especially after he retired from the circuit. Dobbs lived in Coahoma and served as a Howard County Justice of the Peace for a number of years.
The parade begins at 10 a.m. Saturday in downtown Big Spring.
Rodeo competition resumes at 8 p.m. tonight at the Guardian Oilfield Services Rodeo Bowl at the corner of FM 700 and Business 20 West.
