    Here's what we said about CCR in this week's GP:

    WE'RE HERE, WE'RE STEER, GET USED TO IT (MOOOO!)
    It's not your everyday, boilerplate rodeo that features goat dressing, steer decorating, and cowpokes in drag. But this Austin outing of the Texas Gay Rodeo Association is fully sanctioned by the International Gay Rodeo Association, so you know it's all official-like, with a code of fellowship and good sportsmanship, standardized rules, and resources for the production of rodeo events. Come tap into that part of your culture that Yankees and Californicators assume you know, simply by virtue of the fact that you are gay and live in Texas. Thu.-Sun., Sept. 20-23. Travis County Expo Center, 9100 Decker Lake Rd., 214/326-2107.

    It's even listed in Hot Boots!

    RULES
  • You must be 21 years of age or older to win.
  • One entry per person per contest.

  • Winning of prize package DOES NOT include meals, transportation, accommodations, gas, or any other amenity not mentioned in this blog entry.
