Professional cowboy steps out coordinating spectacular bull riding event at Burlingame

Labors of love accompanied by passion have incorporated in tedious dedicated coordination of a special bull riding event this weekend.

The Devin Hutchinson Invitational Sunflower State Chute Out has entries coming in from afar.

“It sure looks to go beyond our grandest expectation with the caliber of contestants, livestock and spectator interest,” said PBR professional bull rider Devin Hutchinson, of Emporia, Kan.

“We’re pleased with the community and saddle club cooperation for the bull riding Saturday evening, Oct. 26th,” Hutchinson said.

Competition with 30 contestants matching skills on bulls from contractors from throughout the Midwest begins at 7 p.m. Saturday. Top riders in the long go-round qualify to come back for a second bull in the short go-round.

“Certainly the caliber of bucking bulls will be a challenge for these riders,” Hutchinson said. “Our event was especially developed for beginning cowboys to match their skills. Yet, we also have several seasoned bull riders lined up for the large prize money offered.”

Freestyle bullfighting is to be featured along with convict poker.

“In convict poker, four people will be playing cards at a table in the arena when a mad bull is released,” the promoter said. “Whoever stays the longest will win a set of tickets to the PBR World Finals.”

For more information or to make entry, call 620-481-1422.

Gates open to the arena grounds at 5:45 p.m. Children five and under are to be admitted free, while those 12 and under will have a reduced admission cost.
