The rodeo grounds in the Stanley Ag Park in Winkler is in need of an upgrade.

During this years Harvest Festival, rodeo chair Karen Krueger says the area received nearly 4 inches of rain and the rodeo arena was a muddy mess.

Krueger is looking for help with the upgrade project.

She is asking the City of Winkler, the Stanley Ag Society, and the Harvest Festival to work together to improve the grounds.

Krueger says all that would need to be done is adding sand to the ground to create better footings, and adding some new panels.

She says the partnership between the city, the Harvest Festival, and Stanley Ag is important to the success of this initiative.
