Niobrara roping club finally begins rain-delayed season

LUSK - The Niobrara Roping club kicked off their 2019 season June 9. A wet spring had delayed the arena clean-up and events scheduling but the first roping attracted a good number of people. This year’s calendar includes both Sunday and Friday evening events. Arena improvements done with funds from the Niobrara Recreation District, including new lights were made in 2018 to help the Roping club hold more ropings with schedule flexibility.
