Past Admirals of the Rodeo
Like many other great ideas throughout history, the Golden Meadow-Fourchon International Tarpon Rodeo was conceived in a conversation over an afternoon drink in a bar. It was 1948, and the group of men in Crip’s Bar in Golden Meadow was discussing the possibility of a tarpon tournament. Perhaps they didn't have any idea of what they were creating, but in the space of over a quarter of a century, the Golden Meadow-Fourchon International Tarpon Rodeo, in the words of a Baton Rouge outdoor writer, "is becoming one of the prestigious rodeos in the South."
