West Monroe's Ike Hamilton Expo Center is getting ready for one of the largest events in its nine-year history.

The "Ike" will host the 2010 U.S. Team Penning Association's World Championship and Show from Oct. 28-Nov. 2.

It's expected to draw riders from all over the United States and from as far away as Italy and Venezuela, competing in moving cattle while on horseback.

The shows will be free to the public.

Nearly 400 riders are expected, and most participate in several teams - 1,600 teams are expected to participate.

The facility has been told to expect the Ike's 500 stalls to be completely filled.
