ELWOOD — The 46th Annual Elwood Rodeo took place Thursday and Friday, as a part of the 2019 Gosper County Fair. Events featured included, bareback riding, steer wrestling, breakaway roping, saddle broncs, calf roping, mixed team roping , barrel racing and bull riding.

Ashlyn Mohling of Granville was crowned as the 2019 Elwood Rodeo queen to kick off the evening. Amber Gonzalez of McCook passed on the crown to Mohling. Rodeo queens must attend at least three rodeos throughout the year, as well as Elwood’s Old Fashioned Christmas.

The stock for the rodeo was provided by Phillips Rodeo Company, the announcer was Gregg McCreer. There were 60 contestants, from Nebraska, Kansas, South Dakota and Texas, who participated.

“The members alone cannot host the rodeo and do rely on many people from the area to donate their time to take tickets, work in the concession stand and help with the stock. So, our hats off to all the people who help make Elwood’s Rodeo the success it has been for the past 46 years,” said the Elwood Rodeo Club.
