Bull riding event will feature instant replays


The Cleatis Lacy Memorial Bull Riding event this Friday, June 16, will feature an added attraction this year.

Through special arrangements, bull riding fans will be able to see instant replays of all the action on a huge screen.

Fans at the Ridge Rider event, which begins at 7 p.m., will be able to watch all the action — twice — as a large screen will allow them to catch something they might have missed in real time.

The Ridge Riders have made special arrangements with a Montana firm, Lyons Productions, to haul the giant screen on a 27-foot trailer to the site. Instant replays will be the order of the evening, and during breaks in the action, some of the highlights of action so far will be shown.

Marty Lyon, of Lyon Productions, said earlier that he is sending a camera crew of three to Grand Coulee for the event. The giant screen is on a trailer that can be adjusted according to the site requirements.

The Ridge Riders have added $2,500 to the bull riding purse and $1,500 to the second feature, a wild horse race.

The Ridge Riders said fans have the Coulee Dam Federal Credit Union to thank for the instant replay addition. Lyon had said that he hopes that by coming to Grand Coulee for the Lacy Memorial, he would be able to come to other events in the area.

Tickets will be available at the arena in Delano at a cost of $12 for adults or $10 for students. Children 10 and under can attend for free.
