The Uvalde Youth Rodeo Club will kick off its 2019 summer season schedule with a practice night on June 4 at the Uvalde County Arena at the Fairplex.
For the first time in the long history of UYRC competition, club practice nights and points nights this season will be held on Tuesdays instead of Mondays.
“So many youngsters compete in weekend rodeo events, we decided to change our competition night to Tuesdays,” said UYRC secretary Thelma Thompson. “This allows for a day of rest for the kids and for their horses. And it allows for an extra travel day.
“We are all creatures of habit. Hopefully, everyone will get used to having our competition night on Tuesdays,” said Thompson.
Other practice nights for the 2019 season include June 11 and July 9.
