Champion of the 'Air Guitar'

Posted in

During Saturday night's final performance of the Sheridan WYO Rodeo, members of the audience had a chance to take part in an "air guitar" contest, where a plastic blow-up guitar was used instead of going full bore "air". Btw, the young gal in the light brown shirt won hands down.
