Biannual Dairyland Donkey Basketball game re-cap!


A large crowd gathered Wednesday night at the Wilburton middle School Gym where hooves and hoops took over for the Biannual Dairyland Donkey Basketball game.

There were four teams that were made up of members from within the community. The teams played elimination games followed by a championship game. The rodeo stars were born by showing no fear in trying to compete while attempting to ride the ride the donkeys and play basketball at the same time. Community State Bank and the Robbers Cave Riding Stables were the teams in the championship finalists. Robbers Cave Riding Stables were the 2018 Champs.

Laughs were had, bruises were formed and memories were made. The event was a successful fundraiser for the Wilburton Main Street.
