Bull riding event cancelled; refunds to come
July 15, 2021
The Challenge of Champions Bull Riding Tour scheduled for this Friday at the fairgrounds in Skamokwa has been cancelled.
Lore Twiet, local coordinator for the event, said the promoter canceled last Wednesday because of a shortage of riders.
The Wahkiakum Fair Foundation will refund the pre-event tickets that were purchased.
"We will have a booth at the Bald Eagle Days on Saturday if you still need to return tickets," Twiet said.
She added that the Foundation would like to thank the sponsors who donated support for the event--Cathlamet Realty West, Interstate Bank Cathlamet Branch, Wahkiakum West, Torppa Constrution, Lee and Diane Tischer, the Wahkiakum Chamber of Commerce and KUKN Radio.
"We would also like to thank everyone who purchased tickets and those who were volunteering their time during the event," Twiet said.
