Mid-Plains Community College Rodeo Team athletes explain roping chutes to Kids Klub members Friday at the Wild West Arena in North Platte.

The team hosted North Platte Public Schools’ afterschool program for an afternoon of educational programming.

Among other things, the elementary students learned about the various rodeo events, heard about the gear and tack used, tried their hands at roping, saw how bulls and horses are loaded into chutes and participated in a demonstration regarding the use of barriers in timed events.
