RSU to Host Clem McSpadden Memorial College Rodeo April 17-19

Rogers State University is set to host the Clem McSpadden Memorial Rodeo April 17-19 at the Claremore Expo Center.

The National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association (NIRA) sanctioned event will feature more than 600 contestants representing 25 schools from Oklahoma and Kansas. Several events are planned to honor the late Clem McSpadden, a native of Rogers County and former state and federal lawmaker, lobbyist and famous rodeo announcer.

Crowds are expected to exceed 2,000 for each session beginning Friday at 7 p.m. Performances will continue Saturday at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. with Sunday’s short-go scheduled for 1 p.m. The first annual Willie and Minnie Mendell Memorial Bull Riding will follow Sunday at 7 p.m. Male and female contestants will compete for both team and individual points in events such as bareback and saddle bronc riding, calf roping, steer wrestling, barrel racing and bull riding.

The rodeo is named in honor of one of Rogers County’s favorite sons, Clem McSpadden. The great-nephew of Will Rogers became an integral part of Oklahoma history prior to his death in 2008. McSpadden was a constant figure at the state Capitol and his voice was known around the world as the voice of rodeo.

In conjunction with the weekend’s activities, Saturday, April 18 will be declared Clem McSpadden Day in the city of Claremore. Donna McSpadden, Clem’s wife, will be on hand to present the rodeo awards.

An endowed scholarship, in McSpadden’s name, is also being established with the Rogers State University Foundation. The scholarship will benefit an RSU student who is committed to academic success and exhibits leadership traits inside and outside the rodeo arena, a tribute to McSpadden’s life achievements.

In addition to the rodeo, the event will also feature a tradeshow featuring a variety of goods and services. The Claremore Expo Center will sponsor a dance both Friday and Saturday hosted by Paul Bogart. Susie Dobbs, host of Beyond Rodeo on RFD-TV, will be present to interview two Clem McSpadden Lifetime Achievement Award recipients.

The RSU rodeo team will challenge all rodeo participants to join them in the battle against breast cancer through the “Tough Enough to Wear Pink” promotion Friday evening. The Rogers County Pocahontas Club members will perform “The Lord’s Prayer.” All contestants and spectators are asked to wear pink at Friday’s rodeo and the first 1,500 spectators will receive a free pink wristband courtesy of Will Rogers Downs Cherokee Casino. Those who receive a wristband will also be given a free $5 play card from Cherokee Casino.

Admission is $8 per performance for adults and $6 per child, 12-and-under. Children under the age of 3 will be admitted free. Contributions can be sent to: The Clem McSpadden Endowed Scholarship, Rogers State University Foundation, 1701 W. Will Rogers Blvd., Claremore, OK 74017.
