Nick Joyce of Juntura endured a wild ride from “Hawkeye” and scored a 79 which helped him place 2nd in the Saddle Bronc competition at the 75th annual Long Beach Rodeo over the weekend. Cool temperatures and mild breezes along the Washington coast drew a torrent of rodeo fans from Eastern Oregon and Washington who wanted to escape the record breaking heat. Joyce would finish 2nd overall in the saddle bronc competition. (For the Enterprise/ROBERT HILSON)
