The rodeo road often provides folks with much more than an opportunity to make money.
Recently our traveling team was called back to New Town, N.D., to cover a rodeo that is much more than action and dirt.
The Adrian Foote Memorial Rodeo is in its ninth year as a Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association rodeo, and much like other rodeos, there is a certain amount of pageantry and tradition that come along with hosting a western event.
