The Fair Day 3: Chicks 'N Chaps!

We have an amazing fundraising event in Montana called Chicks 'N Chaps. To benefit local breast cancer patients, 250 women get together for a ladies-only rodeo clinic. Everyone wears pink, and joins PRCA cowboys for a day of rodeo events and socializing.

It was amazing! My mother went with me and I was surprised at all the detail that went into the event. Our 8-Second Saloon bartenders served up beer and wine all day long, catering filled the tables with tasty foods and Cowgirl Cupcakes whipped up the best little cupcakes I've ever had. Mmm!

Everyone got a t-shirt and a goody bag full of amazing swag. After we'd stuffed our faces to the music of a live country band, we were introduced to our hunky cowboys and headed out into the rodeo arena. We learned about the livestock from the guy who runs the rodeo, learned how to rope and also how to ride a bull. We also learned a dance routine we'd perform as that night's rodeo pre-show! Yikes!

It was hot and sticky but a wonderful time with some great ladies. And we learned that even after six Coors beers you don't feel a thing! Just have to pee a lot... LOL.

After our messy pre show of flailing to the music we retired to the Chick Pit to watch the rodeo and eat nachos. It was a long day but it felt great to be helping such an important cause. We'll definitely be doing this one again!
