On May I9 and 20 we held the 10th annual "Cowboys In The Sky" Sid Roseland Memorial Calf Roping and Steer Wrestling event at the Marshall County Fairgrounds. We had great weather and the best jackpot we have ever had. Cowboys and cowgirls came from Nebraska, Illinois, Missouri, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Oklahoma and all over Iowa.
