There were highs and lows. The competitors were really trying and were fun to watch. The intermission show by One Armed Bandit was awesome. I've never seen buffaloes herded onto the top of a stock trailer before. John is quite a showman, possibly the highlight of the night. Lows; The sound system was somewhere between 747 taking off and 155 howitzers being fired, i.e., deafening, and it would be okay if the emcee would just shut up now and then and let the action speak for itself. All in all it was a fun show, worth the 3.5 hour drive from Columbia (lotsa wrecks along the way), but next time I'll bring ear plugs.
