Along with wild rides, non-stop rodeo action and performances by world champion athletes; Saturday night's performance of the 40th annual Cowboy Capital of the World ProRodeo at Lone Star Arena also included a tribute to the late Danny Brown, who has been a sponsor and supporter of the ECLA since its inception. Past ECLA Presidents Rusty Chandler and Darrell Stone prepare to lead a horse with Danny's saddle, chaps, hat and boots around the arena as the packed crowd stood to their feet to pay tribute to a true cowboy.

(See Wednesday's edition of the Empire-Tribune Cowboy Capital Report for complete rodeo results.)
