It may not have been a record turn out. According to Asphalt Cowboy Jerry Scheller..still recovering…says his initial unofficial guess is that 9,800 or more turned out for the Asphalt Cowboys downtown Redding pancake breakfast. As always the flap-jacks were a flippin and the mouths a flying open as many of us including your neighbors were enjoying the fun of gathering for the annual Rodeo week tradition. The pancakes were perfect and who needed entertainment for the rodeo atmosphere was present and the cowboys kept the crowd alive while herding everyone through the serving lines.

Congratulations to the Asphalt Cowboys and the Redding Rodeo staff as well as the City of Redding and all those who worked to make the event the success it was. Thanks to everyone who attended showing your awesome support in keeping this long standing tradition alive. See ya at the rodeo!
