Local professional cowboy Clint Singleton had a rough night at the Memorial Day Weekend PRCA rodeo - rough enough that his fellow competitors voted him the Hard Luck Cowboy for 2012.

The special cash award, valued this year at $750 was first offered in 2011 in memory of former bull rider and Courier Business Manager Carl Holt.

Its aim is to recognize one cowboy who puts forth a great effort but, through no fault of his own, has little or no success.

The Memorial Day rodeo is hosted by the Cowboy Capital Rodeo Association.

Bandera County Courier owner and publisher Gail Joiner presented Singleton with the award.
