Some big time excitement is coming to a little old fashioned town right here in Oklahoma. Guthrie, Oklahoma's first capital, is hosting the Wrangler Timed Event Championship Rodeo at the Lazy E Arena in two weeks. The wonderful dichotomy of a big time rough and tumble rodeo with the Victorian ambiance of Guthrie makes this a perfect Oklahoma weekend. Spend your afternoons walking the streets of this former capitol and see where Oklahoma got its' start. Take a trolley ride around the town or visit the myriad of little museums dedicated to daily life of early Oklahomans. Then spice up the nights with a trip to the rodeo. Twenty of the top Timed Event Cowboys suit up and take the arena in five different performances over the March 5th through March 7th weekend to battle to become number one.
