BENSON -- Dave Berens had never ridden a bull before but that didn't discourage the Benson native, shown in the photo, from taking a spin on Check Mate during the second-annual Bull-A-Rama Bull Riding and Barrel Racing Bash on Saturday at the Shamrock Hest Riding Arena in Benson.

Berens was among almost two dozen bull riders competing in the event, which paid $2,500 to the winning rider.

Area barrel racers also competed during the event for the first time this year.

See Monday's Tribune for more on the event.
