Stampede from 5 Slack competition in timed events will be at 9 a.m. Friday. Admission is free. Slack is offered when there are more contestants signed up for a timed event than can be run during the regular rodeo performances. The extra competitive time also allows contestants to make a showing at more than one rodeo per weekend. Friday is “Tough Enough to Wear Pink” night, with $1 from each rodeo ticket going to the campaign to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research. Stampede officials urge rodeo participants and fans to wear pink. Sunday is Patriot Day in support of U.S. troops, with red, white and blue clothing encouraged by Stampede officials. Veterans get in free with military ID. Each rodeo performance begins with the Parade of Flags, a drill involving horses and riders carrying flags sponsored by area businesses, clubs and

agencies. Arena runs by royalty follow, with Stampede Queen Tiffany Mannikko, Okanogan, reigning over the event. The first competitive event on Thursday, Friday and Saturday will be ranch bronc riding, with competitors using stock saddles. The event is sanctioned by the Western States Ranch Rodeo Association. Assisting the cowboys will be bullfighters Erick Schwindt and Rowdy Barry, and clown and barrelman J.J. Harrison, who grew up in Okanogan. The specialty act for Friday, Saturday and Sunday is Slim Garner from Wickenburg, Ariz. The announcer will be Steve Kenyon. Stock contractors are Big Bend, Ritzville, and Flying 5, Pomeroy. Suicide Race fans wearing booster buttons, available on the grounds and in local businesses, will be admitted to special viewing areas on the hill and on the dike in the park. A rodeo ticket stub from the performance preceding each race also grants admission to the dike area.

Al Camp/The Chronicle

Suicide Racers head across the Okanogan River in 2013. Viewing also is available from many areas of the arena for rodeo ticket holders. Concessions will operate all weekend on the grounds.

Low river expected for race By Al Camp The Chronicle OMAK – There should not be a problem with high Okanogan River water levels for the 79th World-Famous Suicide Race, run after each performance of the Omak Stampede rodeo on Aug. 7-10. That’s both by the nature of this year’s schedule and from water predictions. The schedule, which called for practices that include veterinary, swim and hill checks, started July 25, a week later than normal. The late start follows the last couple years when practices started a week early, only to be stymied by a river too high for the horses to swim safely. That caused an additional week of practice to get horses and jockeys qualified. Mark Milner, who organizes the Warrior Stampede obstacle race a week after the rodeo, said

Al Camp/The Chronicle

Racers plummet down Suicide Hill during the Sunday race in 2013 river levels are expected to be lower than normal this year.

This comes on the heels of hotter-than-normal days in July

Race from 7 that melted snow in the mountains faster than usual. By August, the stream should be much lower. This year’s races will include a total purse of more than $20,000. The favorite to claim the money would be five-time champion Taz, who easily guided jockey Loren Marchand to the coveted belt and saddle last year. The journey proved so easy that the 12-year-old horse sewed up the crown with an insurmountable lead after the first three races. That allowed Marchand to guide the famed horse, owned by Jim Phillips of Coulee Dam, to a safe traversing of the course that includes a steep embankment and swim across the river on Sunday afternoon. The horse came in last, but secure with the championship. “We had it sewed up,” Loren Marchand said after the race. “We’re saving him. He’s got some more years in him.” You could call it “One for the Thumb” for Taz, now 13, for taking five overall titles. He’s won 17 times out of 20 races and been second twice. “It’s amazing,” Marchand said of duo’s fifth win. “I never would have thought I would win this many times.” “We knew he’d probably be good, but he just turned out awesome,” Phillips said last year, praising the training of George Marchand. “I would like to thank my uncle George (Marchand) for all the time he puts in the horse training,” Loren Marchand said.

Roger Harnack/The Chronicle

Riders create a spray of water as they hit the Okanogan River during the Sunday race in 2013. “And I would like to thank Jim (Phillips) for letting me ride him. Taz is one in a million.” Last year’s races, which included the disqualification of Commando and SKARTAR, were the first competed by the current slate of Owners and Jockeys Association leaders. The officers were installed in February 2013, after the resignation of the past officers in 2012. An appeal of Sunday’s start led to a review of starting line video. The association ruled SKARTAR (jockey Ryan Cate and owned by Leroy Cate) started too soon and was disqualified. No one disputed the ruling announced by association

president Aaron Carden following Sunday’s race. As association officers, especially Carden, stressed last spring, if an appeal led to the discovery of other violations, those horses would be disqualified, too. That led to Commando, owned by Lucille Pakootas, also being disqualified. The horse got no advantage for being sideways (as viewed on jockey Abe Grunlose’s helmet video camera) at the start, but a rear hoof allegedly was seen in the review of the starting line video as being over the starting line, a violation of rules. Grunlose and Commando came from the back of the pack

to first place in a photo finish with Progress, ridden by Rocky Timentwa. Progress was elevated to first following Commando’s disqualification. An appeals process wrapped up this month in Okanogan County Superior Court with no action being taken for either side. Last year’s races started with 19 qualified horses Thursday. By Sunday, 13 horses competed. Of the field, 12 finished in the money. This year’s practice continues 6-9 p.m. Aug. 1. and 6-10 p.m. Aug. 2. Entries open Aug. 1 and close at 10 p.m. the following

Show features Western art By Chelsee Johnson and Brock Hires The Chronicle OMAK – Artwork from local and out-of-town artists will be featured during the Omak Western and Native Art Show Aug. 7-10 at the Courtyard Downtown, 28 N. Main St. The show will be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, and on Sunday it will be open from 9 am to 2 p.m. “Even though this art show is small, it has some superior artists from the Northwest,” show director and artist Tina Reeve Tharp of Brewster said. “This is as good as or better than any other shows.” This year’s show features 16 artists with talents ranging from wood sculpting to oil painting and printmaking. A reception will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, followed by a live auction at 3 p.m. with auctioneer and artist George L. Traicheff taking the bids. Five awards will be given: Best of show, best Western art, best Native American art, best local heritage, the poster award and people’s choice. The poster award winner’s artwork will be featured on next year’s show poster. Last year Georgia Orr Tongel’s “Mourning Dove” won. It is a 4- by 5-foot oil painting depicting Mourning Dove surrounded by Moses Mountain on the left and Omak Mountain on the right.

Tongel, 73, said she’s always wanted to paint Mourning Dove, but until recently never had the courage. “I finally said I’ve got to do it before I go completely blind and can’t hold a brush anymore,” she said. Mourning Dove, Christine Quintasket (1888-1936), wrote three books and was the first Native American woman to publish a novel. In 1935, she also became the first woman elected to the Colville Business Council. “She was a first in many ways, to be published and to be elected into a men’s world,” Tongel said. Tongel said she was surprised when she found out “Mourning Dove” was chosen to be featured on the poster, since she said it’s not the kind of art usually seen on a poster. She has participated in the Omak Western and Native Art Show since 1997, and has won multiple awards for her pieces. “I started in elementary school and won poster contests. I’ve only ever been an artist,” she said. Tongel graduated from Okanogan High School, and studied at several different colleges and universities all over the western U.S. before spending a year studying art in Florence, Italy. After earning her degree in art, Tongel worked in New York City, where she met her

Art from 15 husband Jayme van Tongel, also an artist. He died in 2010. Together, after years of traveling, they moved back to Okanogan County, where they both continued to work as commercial artists. Like Tongel, Adell Burgess, 76, of Okanogan, said art has been a part of her life for as long as she can remember. “I like watercolors, but most of the time I use oil,” Burgess said. “I like the Western theme, people and love animals.” Burgess’ artwork will be at the show and said she encourages other to try their hand at art. “If you’re interest, keep working on it,” she said. “It’s something I can’t get away from. It’s fun and it’s not all that expensive.” Other participating artists include Ron Adamson, Betty Billups, Barbara Connor-Reed, David Craig, Le Ella Day, Cheryl Grunlose, Eugene G. Henry Jr., Esther Hinger, Don’t Nutt, Everett Russell, Robert Walton and Traicheff.

Mannikko revels in queen job By Chelsee Johnson The Chronicle OMAK – Years ago, Tiffany Mannikko’s guardian, Tammy Taylor, put Mannikko in the Winthrop 49er Days parade as a future rodeo queen. Now, at age 18, Mannikko is Miss Omak Stampede. She was the Okanogan County Junior Rodeo princess at age 10, and has been riding horses all her life. Her current horse is named Pepsi. She barrel races with 11year-old Pepsi in Boots and Saddles Barrel Racing Club events and in the Wallis Arena buckle series. “I’ve experienced a lot,” Mannikko said, outlining some of the highlights of her Stampede travels so far. She’s met Miss Rodeo Australia, attended the National Finals Rodeo, and rained on at the Newport Rodeo. “You definitely have to cowgirl up in the mud,” she said, laughing at the experience. Mannikko said her favorite event so far was the Keremeos Rodeo in British Columbia. “I got to carry the American flag,” she said. Mannikko said she initially pursued being Miss Omak Stampede because somebody told her it would be a good opportunity, and she agrees that it has been just that. “It’s made me an outgoing person and it’s taught me how to speak in front of people,” she said. “It’s taught me how to be organized.”

Brock Hires/The Chronicle

Tiffany Mannikko waves to the crowd during the Tonasket Founders Day parade. Stampede royalty adviser Millie Gann said Mannikko has become very poised and confident. “She’s been a very gracious representative to the Stampede and the Omak community,” Gann said. “She

meets the public very, very well.” Mannikko graduated from high school this year, and plans to enroll at Wenatchee Valley College next fall. “I have big plans for the future,” she said. “I want to

eventually join the military and become a lawyer,” she said. “I know that I can do something extravagant.” Mannikko said she appreciates royalty sponsors who make it possible for her to travel.

Stampede bids farewell to four Empty saddle tributes planned for deceased volunteers By Dee Camp The Chronicle OMAK — Four men whose longtime volunteer efforts helped the Omak Stampede and World-Famous Suicide Race will be remembered during this year’s rodeo. Jack Beeman, Wayne Boyd, Larry Condon and Bob Moyer all have died since last year’s Stampede. They will be memorialized with empty saddle tributes during this year’s show. During such tributes, a horse with an empty saddle is led around the arena while a memorial tribute to the individual is read. Beeman, of Loomis, died Dec. 26, 2013, at age 79. He was

a longtime rancher and cowboy, father of three Stampede queens and Omak Stampede Associate Board member. Beeman “Dad carried the American flag for 10 or 11 years” during Stampede opening ceremonies, said his daughter, Stampede Office Boyd Manager Sarah Grooms. Longtime friend Ed Thiele remembered Beeman as a kind man and a former rodeo

He received a silver buckle

Mountain View Cemetery. He was born on North Pine Creek and lived on he same ranch at Loomis since he was 6. Beeman lived the last 21 years of his life with a transplanted heart, which he received Jan. 1, 1993. Boyd, 62, died Feb. 19, 2014, after a battle with cancer. He was an expert roper, horse shoer and equestrian, and was involved with the Suicide Race Owners and Jockeys Association. He loved to chase, catch and finish wild horses, and also owned and rode race horses. His family said he was an accomplished pool player who traveled extensively to tournaments around the state and a deeply religious man who always gave of himself to others.

Farewell from 20 died June 4 in a vehicle crash in Nespelem. He was 81. Condon, a member of the Colville Confederated Tribes, was a bullrider and Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association gold card member. He competed throughout the Northwest and Canada, and competed in Madison Square Garden in the 1960s. Condon was the first Indian cowboy to qualify for the Rodeo Cowboys of America finals, that being in 1962 in Los Angeles, Calif. He later won the 1967 bullriding title at the Calgary Stampede with a score that stood for years. His name appears on one of the horseshoes along the Walk of Fame on the dike near the Omak Stampede Arena. “He was a top cowboy,” said his youngest sister, Margie Hutchinson of Omak. “You know Larry could not walk five feet without someone stopping him, that’s how popular he was. He was a really

well respected person, he was a very, very good friend to people. People really, really liked him.” An entry at Indian Rodeo News on Facebook told of Condon’s passing: “Always and forever and legendary champion Indian bull rider. RIP Larry. We’ll all miss you and know your foundation you built for our young Native bull riders will grow and live on to make you proud.” Moyer, 79, died June 26 in Omak, where he lived. He was living in Selah when, in 1984, he attended the Omak Stampede, fell in love with the city and never left. He competed in rodeo as a young man, and volunteered with Stampede for many years. He was in charge of grounds security for several years. He loved attending the National Finals Rodeo and other regional rodeos. Moyer was a past grand master of the Omak Elks Lodge and a member for several years. In 2011, he was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig’s disease).

Kiddie parade joins grand lineup By Chelsee Johnson The Chronicle OMAK – The Omak Stampede grand parade will be a little longer this year with the addition of a children’s division. The kiddie parade, previously a separate event, will be rolled into this year’s main parade, which starts at 10 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 10. The kiddie parade used to be run by the Omak Civic League, but that group bowed out. Children’s entries now will be intermixed with the rest of the entries in the grand parade. Among the event’s entries will be the Seattle All School Band, mounted royalty from all over Washington and Canada, several new floats and several

Stampede pays tribute to two nations “ By Brock Hires The Chronicle

OMAK – There’s no shortage of talent to honor America and Canada at Omak Stampede rodeo performances. Each year, Stampede has open auditions for people interested in singing anthems during the four rodeo performances. On Thursday, Aug. 7, Rachel McClure and father, Dave McClure, both of Nespelem, will perform the American and Canadian anthems. The next night, Nicole Leese of Omak will perform the “The Star-Spangled Banner,” and Stephen Cockfield of Malott will pay tribute to neighbors to the north with “O Canada.” Former Washington State Nashville Country Star finalist Alexandria Burgett, 20, of Brewster, will perform the American anthem on Saturday. “I sang it last year, but I sang on Sunday,” Burgett said. “It

It’s on my bucket list to sing at a major event. Nicole Leese

” Burgett was a lot a fun.” Burgett has been performing throughout North -Central Washington for several years and said she’s honored to perform the anthem again this year. “There were a lot of talented

The Spider is a blur of color at night at the Davis Shows Carnival.

Davis Shows returns with rides, games The Chronicle OMAK – The Davis Shows carnival will return to Stampede this year with a variety of rides, games and food. Davis Shows, a traveling amusement company, provides family friendly fun at locations all across the Pacific Northwest. Company owner Pat Davis said moving the carnival can be quite the process. “It’s like moving a small city, a lot of people, a lot of planning,” he said. “There’s a lot that goes into it.” Davis said “a lot of trucks and a lot of people” are the only reasons the carnival is able to move. Davis Shows has a base crew that travels with the

carnival and local people are hired upon arrival to help set up and run the carnival. The small city moves on Sunday, travels to Omak on Monday and sets up the attractions on Tuesday. Come Wednesday evening, the carnival is open to the public. Davis Shows is a fourthgeneration family business that has been providing the Stampede with a carnival for at least 20 years. Stampede Office Manager Sarah Grooms said the Davis family loves the venue and there’s really no downside to having the carnival. “It’s an element of the event that you just can’t lose,” she said.
