The fight for the coveted “Ring of Fire” rodeo belt buckle continues Friday night, May 2nd  at the Texas Longhorn Club, exit 4 off I-10 in Vinton, Louisiana. The points series continues as part of a full night of dancing, fun and games in the club that not only boasts the areas only indoor rodeo, but the largest dance floor to boot!   The actual Ring of Fire belt buckle is a custom made piece valued at over $500 emblazoned with gold and silver on a black background and can be seen when displayed prior to Friday night’s events. The current series, which began on March 7th will culminate on May 16th with the added feature of the David Self Ford $1,000 “Bounty Bull”. Longhorn Rodeo Director Coleman Peveto said: “the popular Bounty Bull feature happens when a sponsor puts up a “bounty” on a bull that’s never been rode before. If the cowboy can stay on for 8 seconds, he wins that extra $1,000 in addition to any other prize money he’s got coming.” Peveto offered his thanks to Ford dealer David Self of Orange for his interest and support of the series. “We want to invite David himself to the finals to present the $1,000 prize, if the cowboy can hang on that is” Peveto quickly added.  Doors open at 8PM Friday night and admission to the rodeo is $7 for men 21+, while ladies 21+ get in free for Ladies Night.
