Here are the list of riders that will be competing: 2015 Tournoi Champ: Eric Guillory, Alex Haller, Ryan Haller, Chuck Manuel, Paul Fontenot, Marcus Guillory, Keith Saucier, Cody Manuel, Shane Trahan, John Ross Guillory, lisa Crane, Shane Lee, Austin Trahan, Bryce Johnson, Logan Floyd, Cheyenne Crane and Kristen Avery. This is the first time three females will be riding in the Tournoi.
Returning as the Tournoi Queen for a second year is Bethany Thibodeaux. She is repeating because there was no pageant due to the flooding in August.
The admission charge is $5 at the gate at the Industrial Park. There will be a concession stand and the sheriff’s posse will be cooking some BBQ sandwiches. The emcee will be KVPI’s Charlie Manuel.
KVPI will be broadcasting live at the Tournoi with Stephanie and Carly on KVPI FM 92.5.
