Now in its 41st year, the UGA Block and Bridle Club’s GSSR is one of the largest student-run rodeos to be officially sanctioned by the International Professional Rodeo Association. Cowboys and cowgirls compete in categories such as barrel racing, bronc riding, steer wrestling, calf roping and the most popular event, bull riding. Vendors will be on hand with BBQ, funnel cakes, boiled peanuts and rodeo apparel, and children can look forward to face painting, a petting zoo and pony rides. Each night will raise awareness for different organizations: Athens-Clarke County 4-H and North Georgia Region FFA on Thursday, cancer services at Athens Regional Medical Center on Friday, and the Farmer Veteran Coalition on Saturday.
