Rangers Rodeo a weekend to remember

For an instant Saturday night at the LO Ranch Arena, it was hard not to get a little emotional when a young cowboy from the Lawton area put on a show that shook the vast rodeo complex.

It was made even more special to be down in the crowd thanks to dear friends Delbert and Margaret Warren who gave up two of their box seats so a worn out sports writer could document the 81st Lawton Rangers Rodeo.

Back in 1987 this writer was concerned that the Rangers, their membership dwindling, were going to start doing amateur rodeos instead of hosting Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association-sanctioned events each summer.
