Big Bend Ranch Rodeo 2018
Big Bend Ranch Rodeo 2018 Champions
Thompson Ranch of Munday, TX
Alpine, Tx-----The 2018 Big Bend Ranch Rodeo is now in the record books. The August 10th-11th event was full of excitement, sportsmanship and suspense. The best cowboys from Texas and New Mexico are always amazing as they show off their skills. We continued the “2 go” format and the cowboys provided lots of excitement and entertainment for the record crowds each evening.
CONGRATULATIONS to the Thompson Ranch from Munday, TX who were the 2018 BBRR Champions. This is a back-to-back win for the 2017 Champions. Besides cash and prizes, the team wins an automatic bid to the Working Ranch Cowboys Association World Championships held in November in Amarillo, TX. The Thompson team scored points in almost all five events on both Friday evening and Saturday evening.
The Thompson Ranch, owned by Larry Thompson and managed by Tyler Thompson, is a cow/calf operation and brands a DOUBLE T.
Thompson Ranch team members are Captain Tyler Thompson, Kolton Burnett, Chace Thompson, and Chad Williams.
