The game show is scheduled for three Wednesdays: June 22, June 29 and July 6.

Rodeo committee member and organizer Julie Sandstrom said the committee had done game show series in the past, but not since 2019 because of the pandemic.

"We always have a good turnout," Sandstrom said.

Around 48 riders participated in the June 22 event, raising about $1,000, Sandstrom said.

Each week includes barrels and two other events, with each event split into five age groups.

The events for June 29 will be barrels, big M, and keyhole.
