BRAWLEY — Setting a historic precedent the Cattle Call Queen competition has opened up participation to any residents of surrounding counties.

Competitors from Imperial as well as San Diego, Riverside and Yuma counties are now permitted to compete for the queen title. The decision was made after lone queen contestant, Ami Hovley told the Queen Committee and Chamber of Commerce in a letter she withdrew from the contest because she felt she did not have the confidence to compete this year. Hovley added she will continue training in hopes of competing in the 2017 competition.
