SPENCER - The toughest sport on dirt will make a stop at the Clay County Regional Events Center when the Mauer/DemCo Touring Pro PBR visits Spencer on Friday, November 20 and Saturday, November 21. This year's show will feature a talented barrel man originally from Cherokee.
Dessel, the son of Kevin and Hallie Dessel of Cherokee, estimates he has traveled 20,000+ miles over the past three years while performing in Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, South Dakota, North Dakota, and Minnesota.
Dessel is a 2007 graduate of Buena Vista University in Storm Lake and currently resides in Soper, Oklahoma and teaches physics and math.
The main responsibilities of a barrel man are to provide comic relief for the fans attending bull riding and rodeo events. If a bull isn't cooperating or a cowboy is having a rough time, the barrel man will come out and keep the show entertaining. A barrel man also must fill the time between rides while the judges are tallying scores.
Maurer/DemCo Touring Pro PBR will be held at the Clay County Regional Events Center on Friday, November 20 and Saturday, November 21. The touring pros of PBR will begin bucking bulls at 7:30 pm each night, with doors opening at 6:30pm.
