CSC 14 Black Tie Calf FryThe Chadron State College Rodeo Club is busy with preparations for its biggest fundraiser of the year, the annual Black Tie Calf Fry…coming up next Saturday, Feb 8.

Despite the name, CSC rodeo coach Dustin Luper doesn’t expect many black ties among the crowd, despite the event’s name. “We call it the Black Tie Calf Fry just because of the rhyme scheme. Dress is casual,” he says.

The annual dinner and auction historically draws a large crowd, and Luper says this year’s edition will feature live music by Cross Roads.

Speaker for the evening will be Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame member Paul Tierney. The 1980 All-Around World Champion and inducted into the Hall in 2008, Tierney raises and trains American Quarter horses on his ranch near Hot Springs, South Dakota, and conducts roping clinics in the region.

The evening also includes a live auction with items that include western art paintings, jewelry and home décor while the dinner has a menu of roast beef with au jus, red-skinned potatoes, buttered corn, “Rocky Mountain Oysters,” salad, dinner rolls, and dessert.

Tickets are $10 and may be purchased at the door.
