Looking for anyone that was a constant for the Horseshoe Arena Rodeo held in Corpus Christi, Nueces County, Texas in 1954-1955-1956.

Would like to locate photos of the events held there to show to my grandchildren.

Constants names that I remember are

Barrel Racer:

Doris Gunter
Shirley Snelling
Mary Jo Norman
Virginia Bates
Barbara Fellows

Calf Roping

David Quick
Richard Scott
Charles O'Neal
Cam Gunter
Burley Fellows
John Bounds

Bare Back Riding:

Raymond Johnson
Pee Wee James
Donald Bloomer
Dan Daniels
Fuzzy Page
Hoye Jones (deceased - was from Bell Co., TX

Bronc Riding

J.D. Quick
D. Calderwood
"Red" Corley

Bull Riders:

Pee Wee James
Donald Bloomer
"Fuzzy" Page
"Buster" Walker
Dan Daniels

I was the high point winner for the 4 week bull riding event held in 1954 at Horseshoe Arena and was awarded the silver buckle.

Any information or photos is appreciated. I will gladly pay for copies and share my newspaper write ups.

I am especially looking for the photo taken in 1954 of the winners of the barrel race, bare back riding, calf roping and bull riding event that was made of the winners on horses in the arena as the awards were being presented.

Thanks for your help,

"Buster" Walker
