What’s better than a live demonstration to whet your appetite for the real thing? Meeker Classic trial director Maym Cunningham and her sister, retired trial director Ellen Nieslanik were invited to perform a sheep herding demonstration at the Snowmass Night Rodeos. They performed similar demonstrations at the Mesa County Fair, Garfield County Fair, Silt Hey Days and the Rio Blanco County Fair.

Discounted tickets for Rio Blanco County residents are on sale in advance at Wendll’s Wondrous Things and the Meeker Chamber of Commerce.
