Major calf roping event helps open new Curry County Special Events Center

The first major event at the new Curry County Special Events Center is in the books this morning.

The 5th Annual Joe's Boot Shop Calf Roping Open in Clovis brought top competitors to Eastern New Mexico over the weekend.

They competed over three days for top prize in one of the largest calf roping events in the world.

More prize money and the new events center helped the competition grow, and people responded, filling the stands for the event.

Organizers a Joe's Boot Shop say with demand growing, they may add another day of competition next year.
