We went to the Cinch Shootout Rodeo today, at the Cheyenne Frontier Days.
We started out the Rodeo with the Leap Frogs.
From their website:
The United States Navy Parachute Team “The Leap Frogs” is the official parachute demonstration team of the United States Navy. Part of the United States Naval Special Warfare Command. The team is made up of active-duty Navy SEALs, Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewmen (SWCC) and support personnel. The team is sanctioned by the Department of Defense and recognized by the Federal Aviation Administration.
