Over 180 contestants are expected for this year's Senior Pro Rodeo at the Ravalli County Fairgrounds.

Slack sessions (which are free to view) are going on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, but the evening shows are at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday nights.

The events include the usual ropin' and ridin' with entrants over the age of 40. Rodeo fans will recognize many of the names from past performances in Hamilton and on the national scene.

The event is sanctioned by the National Senior Pro Rodeo Association, who also have the Hall of Fame displays at the Ravalli County Museum.
