Pembina Rodeo

by

Michael Rustad

 

My sister Janine's husband, Jim Moris, is the organizer and the force behind the Pembina Rodeo. I use clips from a video of a rodeo from three years ago in my teaching of torts class. One year I developed my final examination with hypothetical disasters occurring at the Pembina Rodeo. Contrary to my examination hypothetical, the Pembina Rodeo is extremely well run and a popular event in the Great Northwest of the Upper Midwest. Jim's daughter Jill is interested in Rodeo and performs in riding events throughout N.D. and the vicinity. The Pembina Rodeo is one of those events that people look forward to all year round. I am hoping to get there next summer or very soon so I can see first-hand what I write about in my torts class! After my torts examination, I showed about 15 minutes of the video on the big screen. My brother-in-law is famous and so is rodeo. My students throught he made for a very handsome and authentic cowboy! Best, Mike
