Kalsangi Clubhouse was filled with cowboys and cowgirls in various shapes, sizes and colors as they celebrated the Family Day of Kalsangi Residents Association (KRA) with its very own OctobeRodeo. KRA is a community in Kalsangi that composed of big bosses from Dolefil. And they were grouped according to their streets.
I and my friend Gwyn were tasked to host the show. We decided to wear costumes too and transformed ourselves into fictitious cowboy hippies. Gwyn called herself "the cowboy's no other woman" while I'm "the brother of Woody from another mother". Yeeha!

Lots of exciting things were stored that night. There were games, prizes, tons of foods, drinks and entertainment with a live band named Rhythm and Matrix.

After the feast of foods for dinner, we did the first game for the cowboys called Beer Drinking Relay composed of 3 members per team. There were seven teams competed and drank those beers like babies, bottoms up! Afterwards, it's cowgirls turn for the Cola Drinking Contest. We took one participant per team and the cowgirl who first drank the cola up to the last drop won the game. The last game was called Shoot the Hoop. We asked one participant from each team and they were given 3 hoops to shoot it on the pole. The contestant who shot most number of hoops won the game.

OctobeRodeo also awarded top 5 best dressed little cowboys and cowgirls. We were even amazed of those cute kids with nice full cowboy outfits. Their parents must have prepared a lot for the competition.

Then disco time with live band came and we did a community dance headed by a hired dance instructor to the tune of Moves Like Jagger by Maroon 5. It was whole blast of a party and everybody danced like there's no tomorrow.

What made that night memorable to me is I got the chance to be a Concert King for a Night because I, together with my partner Gwyn, joined the band like pro and they allowed us to sing along with them. It was such an experience!

Hmmm... I wonder if they also have Rodeos on November?
