2nd Annual Molokai Stampede
Stampede! Paniolo from Molokai and the neighboring islands spent last weekend mounted up at Kapualei Ranch, roping cattle for fun and prizes.
Though it was primarily a team roping competition, the Molokai Stampede also hosted ladies barrel racing. Zhantell Dudoit took first place overall.
The rodeo was originally scheduled for last weekend, but was postponed due to hurricane Flossie. The delay caused some cowboys from neighboring islands to have to pull out of the competition. This is only the Molokai Stampede’s second year, but the Kapualei Ranch hopes that it will continue to grow and eventually be recognized state-wide.
