North Lake’s Rodeo Association recently handed over a Golden Boy .22 rifle that they raffled off last fall, drawing the winning ticket on Nov. 16 at an awards banquet. The winner, Robert Hulbert, recently drove from Kizer to the Fort Rock Restaurant and Pub to claim his prize.
Rodeo Association Pres. Laura House, Secretary Stacey Judd, Pub owner Sheri Blackman and Kathy Kruse met him there with the rifle.
Funds from the drawing will go to help the non-profit Rodeo Association purchase rodeo awards and provide for upkeep and insurance of rodeo grounds in Christmas Valley.
Hulbert bought his winning ticket from the Fort Rock Restaurant and Pub, and said he often buys tickets and donates but this was the first time he’s won such a drawing.
