Alumni Night At The CNFR
Every year, Friday night at the CNFR, is Alumni Night. You can imagine, with just almost 65 CNFR's in the bag, there are a lot of alumni. Of course, I, myself would be considered an alumni. I count myself lucky to be able to still be involved even though I am not rodeoing any longer...
