Rattlesnake Rodeo plans to take road trip to Andalusia

By By JEFFERY BIGGS, Special to The Standard
Inclement weather over the past few years and economic factors have prompted the Opp Jaycees to make a big decision
Dodd Jowers, president of the Opp Jaycees said the decision was a tough one, but one that was necessary.
With the move to Andalusia, the entire fairgrounds complex will be utilized, allowing for more space, and a more friendly, inviting atmosphere for both rodeo fans and vendors.
Jowers said keeping the vendors in mind was of great importance in the decision as well.
But with the departure of the rodeo, Jowers said people shouldn't think the Jaycees are abandoning Opp.
Jowers also said the move should be viewed as an opportunity for expanding the rodeo.
