Weer Air Force show at Sonoma County Fair Once a contender in both riding and timed events when attending Cal Poly at San Luis Obispo and after graduation, his riding career was cut short by a tractor accident in 1954. Well, rodeo folk are not the type to let a good man down, so some of his friends got together and put on a benefit rope and riding rodeo. Of course his friends were top riders of the time, men like Casey Tibbs, Ben Johnson, Billy Ward, Dean Oliver and Leonard Block, and the benefit brought Cotton $I0,000, enough to start a western clothing store in MarysviUe. That's where he and Santa Rosa western clothing store owner Lee Adair became acquainted. Cotton, so named because he was a towhead as a kid, was soon raising stock for rodeos and developing his Flying U Rodeo Co. with Rutherford, Brawley. Now the rodeo promoter has about 80 rodeos a year m the 11 western states and Hawaii with one scheduled for the Seattle King Dome in the near future and negotiations for an appearance in Peking, China. His wife and grown children, including a son named for Adair, all work the shows. A staff of 25 includes clowns, secretaries, grooms and truck drivers and he uses seven diesel trucks and two "D.E.P." volunteer planes. As Santa Rosa's rodeo, the only one in this area since the Grand National at the Cow Palace last fall, the payoff will be about $15,000. The local event, sponsored by Coors Beer and arranged by Adair, will see a female rope header with a male partner roping the steer's heels. Winners will receive a silver belt buckle. Among contenders are partners Fran Straight and Len Landis, Santa Rosa; Meidi Meyers and Ben Meyers, a father-danghter team, Sonoma; Heida Meyers and John O'Conners, Sonoma; and Laurie Henry, Sonoma, and Jim Rightsell, Santa Rosa. Tickets are available at the box office outside the High- way 12 gate, allowing patrons to pick them up without having to park and enter the fairgrounds. Adult prices are $2.50 to $3 plus fair ad- mission and children $1 in the bleachers. The two and one- half hour show starts at 8 p.m. both nights. Steven D.
