Knights of the Realm

Hark: All residents of the kingdom of Clallam are summoned to attend a tournament of the Knights of the Realm at 6 o’clock or at 8 o’clock on Friday, the 20th day of August. Knights of the Realm is an international jousting troupe based in the Northwest through Wild West Events, Inc., in Creswell, Ore. Its action-packed medieval show is family oriented, with pre-show entertainment including archery, darts, axe throwing and various games of skill. A master-at-arms and a jester keep the crowd cheering and laughing with their tricks. From their 60-foot castle during the Procession of Royalty, four “European” knights ride out and are introduced atop their trusty steeds. In friendly competition, they attempt to throw their lances through rings as they gallop by and toss their javelins at a target. However, only one will become the true champion! Witness jousting and swordplay that are fights to the death!

the athletics of Rodeo The rider is judged on his control during the ride and on his spurring technique. The score also is based on the rider’s “exposure” to the strength of the horse. In addition, the horse’s performance accounts for half the total score.

BREAKAWAY ROPING BAREBACK RIDING A bareback rider begins his ride with his feet placed above the break of the horse’s shoulder. If the cowboy’s feet are not in the correct position when the horse hits the ground on its first jump out of the chute, the cowboy has failed to “mark out” the horse properly and is disqualified. Throughout the 8-second ride, the cowboy must grasp the rigging (a handhold made of leather and rawhide) with only one hand. Optimum spurring action begins with the rider in control, his heels at the horse’s neck. He then pulls his feet, toes turned outward, to the horse’s withers until the cowboy’s feet are nearly touching the bareback rigging. A rider is disqualified if he touches his equipment, himself or the animal with his free hand.

Breakaway roping is a modification and adaption of men’s tie-down calf roping. The contestants begin behind a rope barrier. The barrier is released automatically by a measured length of twine around the calf’s neck. When the calf reaches the end of the twine, the barrier is tripped. If the roper rides through the barrier before it is tripped, a 10-second penalty is added to the total time. The loop must be thrown and go over the head of the calf. When the slack in the rope is pulled tight, the tension will break a string that is holding the other end of the rope to the saddle horn. When the rope “breaks away” from the saddle, the judge will drop the flag to stop the timing watches.

TEAM ROPING The header is the first cowboy out of the box. He chases down the steer and ropes him around

the head and once around the neck or around both horns. The header must turn the steer to the left, giving his partner (the heeler) a chance to rope both of the steer’s hind feet. If the header breaks the barrier, a 10-second penalty is added to the total time; catching only one hind leg results in a 5-second penalty. If the heeler tosses his loop before the header has changed the direction of the steer, it’s called a “crossfire” and it results in a disqualification. The run is complete, and the clock is stopped, when the steer is secured, the team ropers’ horses are facing each other on opposite sides of the steer, and the slack has been taken out of both ropes.

BARREL RACING In barrel racing, the contestant enters the arena at full speed on a sprinting American Quarter Horse. As they start the pattern, the horse and rider trigger an electronic eye that starts the clock. Then the racer rides a cloverleaf pattern around three barrels positioned in the arena and sprints back out of the arena, tripping the eye and stopping the clock. The contestant can touch or even move the

barrels, but receives a 5-second penalty for each barrel that is overturned. With the margin of victory measured in hundredths of seconds, knocking over one barrel spells disaster for a barrel racing competitor.

BULL RIDING Upper body control and strong legs are essential to riding bulls. The rider tries to remain forward, Continued page 16

high score. Other factors considered in the scoring are the cowboy’s control throughout the ride, the length of his spurring stroke and how hard the horse bucks. Model spurring action begins with the rider’s feet far forward on the bronc’s point of shoulder, sweeping to the back of the saddle, or “cantle,” as the horse bucks. The rider then snaps his feet back to the horse’s neck a split second before the animal’s front feet hit the ground. Disqualification results if, prior to the buzzer which sounds after 8 seconds, the rider touches the animal, himself or his equipment with his fee hand, if either foot slips out of a stirrup, if he drops the bronc rein or if he fails to have his feet in the proper “mark out” position at the beginning of the ride. Continued from 15

or “over his hand,” at all times. Leaning back could cause him to be whipped forward when the bull bucks. Judges watch for good body position and other factors, including use of the free arm and spurring action. Although not required, spurring will add points to a rider’s score. As in all the riding events, half of the score in bull riding is determined by the contestant’s performance and the other half is based on the animal’s efforts. A bull rider will be disqualified for touching the animal, himself or his equipment with his free hand.

The steer wrestler on horseback starts behind a barrier and begins his chase after the steer has been given a head start. If the bulldogger leaves too soon and breaks the barrier, he receives a 10-second penalty. The steer wrestler is assisted by a hazer, another cowboy on horseback, tasked with keeping the steer running in a straight line. When the bulldogger’s horse pulls even with the steer, he eases down the right side of the horse and reaches for the steer’s horns. After grasping the horns, he digs his heels into the dirt. As the steer slows, the cowboy turns the animal, lifts up on its right horn and pushes down with his left hand. After the catch, the steer wrestler must either bring the steer to a stop or change the direction of the animal’s body before the throw or is disqualified. The clock stops when the steer is on its side with all four legs pointing the same direction.

SADDLE BRONC RIDING Each rider must begin his ride with his feet over the bronc’s shoulders to give the horse the advantage. A rider who synchronizes his spurring action with the animal’s bucking efforts will receive a

Borte restores twocylinder tractors Story and photos by Patricia Morrison Coate

Josh Borte enjoys displaying his collection of restored John Deere twocylinder tractors, spanning from 1939-1959.

Pop-a-pa-pa. Pop-a-pa-pa. Even though you can’t say they purr, the sound of Josh Borte’s twocylinder Johnny Poppers put smiles on the young and old — and the broadest grin is his own. The 30-year-old Port Angeles native began his love affair with John Deere tractors as a fifth-grader visiting his grandfather’s Indiana farm. “I had a chance to drive some large John Deere tractors. Oh! As a little kid driving something as tractor large as a house, it was pretty cool! Later I had a whose dad said, ‘Drive this tractor,’ a 1958 friend w two-cylinder 820, ‘and you’ll want to start collecting two-cyl That was it! I was hooked on antique twothem.’ T

Borte poses with his 1959 Model 630.

cylinder tractors. It was definitely their sound and that myy family on both sides farmed with John Deeres, so they’re part of my heritage.” Continued page 18


18 • Wednesday, August 11, 2010

Clallam County Fair 2010 Continued from 15 Deere & Company, headquartered in Moline, Ill., was founded in 1837 by blacksmith John Deere who invented the fi rst commercially successful steel plow. The firm uses “John Deere” as its brand name. Known for its signature green/yellow color combination and “Nothing runs like a Deere” motto, the company is the world’s leading manufacturer of farm equipment.

All JD, all the time Borte salts his conversation with JD facts and figures: “The company made two-cylinder tractors from 1924-1960 in the U.S. but until 1972 in Argentina.” Or “The pop is the sound of the exhaust. They don’t fire at 360 degrees like four-cylinder engines. What you hear is the ignition of the first one, then the second, like a double-barrel shotgun.” A born mechanic, Borte is articulate and enthusiastic chatting about his 10-tractor collection, nearly all of them restored to showroom condition. However, he said, “Some I like leaving in the rough to show the wounds and damage they earned.” His first was a 1944 Model D he bought seven years ago “in several hundred pieces on the floor” from a fellow collector. “Lots of people just see junk. I saw a tractor and I just had to have it.” He’s a member of the Cascade Two Cylinder Club and the only one on its roster of 210 from the Olympic Peninsula. Club members attend about

Sequim Gazette fi ve general meetings a year and attend numerous functions as a club such as plow days, swap meets, parades, tractor pulls and shows. What Borte terms the “hen’s tooth, the pinnacle” o f h i s col l e c t i o n i s a factory yellow 1958 Model 420I Series 3 industrial tractor that was used as a workhorse for decades on a Carlsborg farm. “There were only about nine built with the identical options, so needless to say, I may have the only one in existence.” At least once a week, Borte likes to bring out one of his models — the 1939 Model B, 1939 H, 1944 D, 1944 LA, 1945 BR, 1950 M, 1953 60, 1957 320, 1957 420I or 1959 630 — and drive to breakfast or a convenience store, often receiving thumbs-up as he rides high above the street. Because a tractor is an agricultural vehicle, all it’s required to have to be legal is a “Slow Moving Vehicle” triangle on the back. Borte chuckles when he recounts the time he’d just purchased a tractor, driving it onto the ferry so he wouldn’t have to pay

Sequim Gazette the long vehicle fee of a pickup truck and trailer. He gets tips on tractors from friends and fellow collectors, sometimes finding the rusted relics with weeds up to the steering wheel or covered by decades of dust in outbuildings. “The fi rst thing I do is a proper evaluation because I can step into a machine where I can spend too much on it,” Borte said. So far, he’s paid between $300 and $3,000 for his tractors and estimates after hundreds of hours of restoration, their values range from $6,000 to $20,000. “I’m always looking to give one a home,” he said, making it clear that none of his are for sale. He can be reached at mrhorsepower56@hotmail.com.

Birthing a beast His mechanical aptitude and gusto for returning a dilapidated tractor into showroom model shape leads Borte to work at a dizzying pace. “For most people, a complete restoration is upwards of a couple of years but I work at a breakneck speed. It’s two or three months after work, late nights and every weekend. It’s a fire that gets going in me. With my mind focused, I see the goal and must complete it.” Much more than a matter of metal and mechanics, the tractors imbue in him a feeling of resurrection. “I feel like it’s a living creature, not a machine. That’s probably why I like restoring — I’m bringing a dead beast back to life and I smile at that moment. It’s about creating that life,” Borte said. “These machines symbolize not only my heritage but that of our nation and our local community. People tend to forget about the past as farmland gets plowed under and developed. Like farmland, these machines get cut apart. People supported their families with a tractor — it wasn’t a toy, it was the most expensive thing they owned. That memory lives on in each one I save.” Restoration is a melding of mechanical and artistic challenges. Dismantling and rebuilding frozen blocks, tracking down replacements for broken or missing parts, figuring out engine idiosyncrasies, doing

body work and prepping for paint — Borte has done this nine times, is working on his 10th, and shows no signs of slowing down. He has several sites where he stores his tractors but does most of his restoration work in his home garage. “K & K Tractor of Shelbyville, Ind. — I’ve never met them but they’ve gotten to know me so well just by the sound of my voice. Maybe it’s a sign I spend too much money on this hobby,” Borte laughed. Calling himself an “oddity” as a “young old man” because of his passion for two-cylinder JDs, nevertheless, Borte’s made many friends and memories. He’s been the antique equipment superintendent at the Clallam County Fair for the past four years, plans on 20 more, and is proud he took the show from 12 tractors to more than 40 machines. The tractors are seldom without admirers. “Every year for the past three years, one guy stops by and asks if he can start the fly wheel on my 1939 Model H one more time in his life. With the first turn, it barked to life and I could see tears come to the old man’s eyes. It was a magical moment,” he said, his voice wavering a bit. “Every year I expect to see him. It still brings a sense of pride and happiness to me.”

Kiss the Pig contest supports 4-H One lucky local veterinarian again will have the unique opportunity to kiss a pig at the Clallam County Fair, courtesy of the 4-H Leaders’ Council. Last year’s “winner” and current spokesman Dr. Sandra Smith will be cheering on the new winner and giving advice in the challenging event of actually kissing the pig. This is the 10th year for the contest. All participating veterinarians will have piggy bank in their office to accept donations in their name. Several businesses in Port Angeles and Sequim will have display boards to allow you to vote for your favorite veterinarian. The vet with the most money donated in his or her name gets to kiss the pig in the swine/sheep arena at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 22. Unlike the pig depicted on the posters, this pig won’t be something a person would welcome. The money raised by the Kiss the Pig contest will go to provide year-end awards, scholarships to graduating seniors ($1,250 awarded last year) and help with costs of out-of-area 4-H teen events. Every 4-H graduating senior who applies for a scholarship and completes the year receives a scholarship. 4-H involves more than 800 county youths through programs such as traditional clubs and after school programs. Previous winners chronologically since 2001 are Dr. Bob Mowray, Dr. Sandra Smith, Dr. Cheryl Adaska, Dr. Dennis Wilcox, Dr. Sandra Smith, Dr. Marna Hall, Dr. Sandra Smith, Dr. Brian Marts and again! — Dr. Sandra Smith.

“A yacht is one of the most effective ways to move money from the top .001 percent of income earners and put it directly into the hands of the working class: Carpenters, Welders, Machinists, Crew, Purveyors, Florists, Dockhands, etc.”

Congratulations to the Westport team for another incredible accomplishment!

Proud to be a part of the local community.
