FORT MADISON – Here’s some action photos from Wednesday night’s CINCH Shootout at the Tri-State Rodeo. The Shootout pits the nation’s top eight cowboys and cowgirls in the events of Bull Riding, Saddle Bronc Riding, Bareback Riding, Calf Roping, Steer Wrestling, Team Roping, and Women’s Barrel Racing. These competitors go head-to-head in the unique tournament format. In the first round, the livestock and timed event order are selected at random, but then top four in each event qualify to participate in the next round, with the winner taking home $10,000 in each event.
