 Championship Bull Riding Brings live Bull to Conroe National Night Out to endorse anti-bullying

 

CONROE, Texas – (October 2, 2017) – The live pet bucking bull, who represents the Championship Bull Riding’s Bill is No Bully program, will be in Conroe, Tuesday, October 3, meeting and greeting and taking selfies with everyone in attendance and his message is simple - “bullying” is not acceptable behavior for Conroe, Texas.

Bill will be in attendance with Shelby Walling, the 2017  Montgomery County Fair Rodeo Queen, at the Conroe National Night Out to support the community and kick off the annual Conroe Bull Mania to be held on Saturday night at 8 pm at the Lonestar Expo Center.

The “Bill is No Bully appearance and book are great tools to communicate with kids while at the same time increasing awareness about bullying in schools,” said CBR Bull Mania producer Benny Cude.

Residents and community members are invited to attend National Night Out at the Conroe Target on Tuesday, October 3 from 5-8 pm.

Conroe Police officers and firefighters will be on hand with demonstrations and their will be festivities for children such as a climbing wall, trackless train, and opportunities to participate in various activity booths including photos with Bill! Food and music will be on site and admission is free.

Bill is No Bully is a story about a bull that doesn’t fit in. The other bulls in the pasture, famous bucking bulls, encourage Bill to be mean. When Bill takes a different path he is met with resistance. The book, written and illustrated by Cindy Hedeman, is part of an anti-bullying presentation that makes use of a live bull to interact with the students. Students from Conroe were involved last year during Bull Mania attending readings and participating in a coloring contest. This year Bill is taking selfies with anyone brave enough to sit on him. Hot Dogs and drinks will also be served so come out and meet Bill and your neighbors.

Come on out and meet the real “Bill” as he is getting ready for the annual Conroe Texas Bull Mania sponsored by Demontrond Auto Group, Cavender’s, K Star, and the City of Conroe.

The Championship Bull Riding Conroe Texas Bull Mania event takes place at the Lonestar Arena at 8 pm on October 7 and features the top 24 riders on tour including six-time World Champion, Sage Steele Kimzey from Strong City, Oklahoma and two former CBR World Champions, Cole Echols, Dodge, Texas and Josh Barentine, Johnson’s Bayou, Louisiana.
