If you happen to be wandering around in Eastern New Mexico this weekend you still have time to take in the Running Water Draw Cowboy Symposium (June 20-22) out behind Ned Houk Park a few miles north of Clovis. (Directions below)*

There's a trail ride taking place right at this moment, and there will be authentic chuck wagon cooking at noon. There will be continuous Western music and cowboy poetry all day, as well as a horseshoe pitching contrest and a kid's rodeo. There will be lots of vendors selling art, tools, tack, handmade items, etc. and you can watch demonstrations of trained longhorn steers, millinery and fineries, working cow dogs, equine chiropractics and hoof care.

Tonight, Saturday, there is a concert at 7 PM by the Sweethearts in Carhartts, followed by a dance with the Kene Terry Band.

On Sunday morning (tomorrow) there will be a chuck wagon breakfast at 8 AM and cowboy church at 9 AM.

*Directions:
Go north on Prince St. from Lowe's Home Improvement 5 miles to CR-17, turn right and go 3 miles. OR from Love's Truck stop on Hwy 60/70/84 go north on Sugar Beet Rd. (CR-G) for 8 miles; the last 3 miles are dirt road).

Gen. admission is $5.00, chuck wagon meal on Sat. is $15.00, the wagon meal and concert is $30.00, horseshoe pitching contest is $5.00, kid's rodeo is free. On Sunday, the breakfast is $6.00 and cowboy church is free, of course.

I am not connected with this symposium in any way--just a fan of chuck wagon cooking! All of this info is from a flyer I picked up at the last chuck wagon event that I attended.

I would so love to go, but am laid up with a bad knee. After a few repairs I hope that I can hit the chuck wagon trail once again. I'm hoping to go the the big one (http://www.cowboysymposium.org/chuckwagon.asp - broken link)in Ruidoso in October. I'll try to post more info about that one as we get closer to that date.
