Tom Kiplinger Memorial Rodeo
I am getting ready to post some updated information on one of our new rodeos this year. The three McCook, NE Timed Events Rodeos will be held May 18-19. It is a memorial event in honor of Tom Kiplinger, who was a former NSPRA executive board member and a rodeo philanthropist. I googled Mr. Kiplinger this morning. If you are like me and do not know he was, you should do the same. Tom Kiplinger passed away last year at the age of 88, but he left a legacy that will live on in McCook, NE for years to come. Not only did he donate the funds to build the arena in McCook (which is named in honor of his mother), but he also set up a foundation to maintain it through the years.
Glen Hollenbeck and his committee are working hard to make the Kiplinger Memorial Rodeo a spectacular event! Entries are May 8th, so don’t forget to call in!
