Rodeo riders include Ewing on route
August 1, 2019
There was a flurry of activity at Ewing's rodeo arena, July 24.
While cowboys had horses and a mule in tow, B.J. Robinson and Jerry Stewart, of Ponca, used the area as a campground instead of practicing team roping skills.
The two are chairman of Ponca's Days of '56 rodeo and were en route to Burwell for Nebraska's Big Rodeo.
Robinson and Stewart covered approximately 35 miles per day. They left Ponca July 22.
Plans were to arrive in Burwell Friday evening, in time to promote Ponca's 51st rodeo.
While this was their first adventure, two committee members made the same trip in 1967.
