|LSUE arrived at Jim and Betty
David's home near Church Point after the courir had already made their charge onto the
property and after most of the chicken chasing was concluded. However, there was
still plenty of activity, as the photographs on this page show.
According to the Church Point News, the awards presented to riders by the
Mardi Gras Association this year went to David Rayou, most original costume; Eric
Wimberly, most chickens; Richard Daigle, prettiest; Scotty Venable, best all-around; Cory
Joey Richard is the long-time capitaine. Co-capitaines were
Larry Daigle, Tony Douget, Mike McGee (capitaine of the Mamou Mardi Gras), Gary Brignac,
Blake Deshotel, Gus Gravot, Larry Richard, Ronald Roy, and Dr. Ty Hargroder, the bearded
gentleman seen standing on his horse in the photo at left.
