THE BIONIC BULLRIDER VISITS CHARLOTTE FRONTIER DAYS!

This year we have a very special guest with us.  His name is Barry Brown and he is known as the Bionic Bullrider.  Barry who came back from nearly fatal injuries in the arena to eventually qualify for the National Finals Rodeo, has written a book about his life and rodeo career. The Bionic Bullrider details the incident in a 1968 rodeo in Superior, Wisconsin, in which a bull broke his sternum and five ribs, essentially splitting his chest in two, and the ground breaking surgery that drew coverage in several medical journals.  Brown was Comeback Cowboy of the Year in 1971 and qualified for the NFR in 1974.  For more information visit www.bionicbullrider.com.  Please come out and visit with him.  He is located on the Fairgrounds and will have a table set up to do book signings on Friday and Saturday.
