Quilt show, Relay for Life, rodeo on tap this weekend

The gates will open up at the G. Rollie White Complex for the Bad to the Bone PRCA Pro Rodeo, Bradyites will pound the track at Bulldog Stadium for the sixth annual Relay for Life and quilters and crafters will head to the Heart of Texas Civic Center for the third annual Quilt & Craft Show. In short’there’s fun to be had by everyone in Brady this weekend. Brady/McCulloch County Chamber of Commerce EVP DeLaine Poe reported that ticket sales for this weekend’s rodeo activities are on the rise. “We’ve sold quite a few tickets so far,” said Mrs. Poe. “Usually we sell the most tickets on the day of the performance.’ Miss Rodeo Texas is scheduled to make an appearance during the rodeo festivities and Miss Heart of Texas as well as her court will be attending the performance on Saturday. Many of the top-ranked cowboys are scheduled to appear this weekend giving area residents a chance to see some of the best rodeo action around. The pavement at the track will be smoking Friday night as the Brady Relay for Life event gets underway at Bulldog Stadium. The relay is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. with the cancer survivors starting things off with the opening lap followed by the overnight relay. Games, entertainment and fund-raisers will be held the duration of the relay. Luminaries will be sold for $6 onsite until 9:30 p.m. on Friday with the lighting ceremony scheduled to begin at 10 p.m. For information about relay teams, fund raisers or luminaries, contact event coordinator Barbi Jones at 597-2104. The Quilt & Craft Show is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday at the Civic Center. The event is held each year to benefit the local Senior Citizen’s Center. According to event coordinators, all of the booths are spoken for and this year’s event is expected to be the largest one thus far. None of the quilts shown last year will be available this year. All new materials will await quilt and craft enthusiasts, and this year’s event will feature a number of collectible quilts, some even 100 years old.
