TWIN FALLS, Idaho — It’s time again, for the College of Southern Idaho’s Rodeo team to take off their chaps and boots and strap on their boxing gloves for their annual Cowboy and Cowgirl Boxing Smoker fundraiser.
"The boxing smoker is by far our largest fundraiser for the rodeo team, and we use that money for scholarships, travel expenses, practice expenses... We spend a lot of money so we need to be able to make a lot of money and the boxing smoker helps us do that," said Birnie
CSI Rodeo’s 44th Annual CSI Cowboy and Cowgirl Boxing Smoker is Saturday night on Jan. 29 at the at the CSI Eldon Evans Expo Center.
"It’s an electric event, you get the expo center full of people and the electricity in the air, it’s an exciting fun night," said Steve Birnie, head rodeo coach for CSI.
After canceling last year due to COVID-19, the team expects a huge turnout, according to Birnie.
"I’m excited, I’ve been waiting for it for two years now because we didn’t get to have it last year and all of us that are fighting have been training really hard. We are all pretty excited for it," said Brek Sanderson, Rodeo Team Captain for CSI.
