Fear not, rodeo fans. The Colville Pro-West Rodeo is scheduled for its usual Father's Day weekend in June. Because of trepidation over the recent Equine Herpes Virus (EHV-1) outbreak in Washington State, the Colville Panorama Rodeo Board met June 2 to decide whether or not to proceed with the annual event.
According to Panorama President Dave Baskins, the rodeo will go ahead as planned.
