A new, 70-foot by 125-foot warm up arena is going up on the Red Willow County Fairgrounds, made possible by a donation by Tom Kiplinger as well as his neighbors, Marty Sis and Rick Wilcox, which will enable the main Kiplinger Arena to attract larger events as well as hold more inside during the winter. The fairgrounds have already attracted the fifth annual Roper Apparel and Footwear Barrel Futurity, set Aug. 24-26 in McCook. The event, which will involve up to 250 horses, is "the biggest thing we've had," according to Deb Lafferty, Red Willow County Fair manager. The Kiplinger also hosts the State High School Rodeo this weekend.
