espite the freezing temperatures and Interstate closures that plagued Arizona New Year’s Weekend, team ropers from 24 different states and Canada managed to make their way to the Westworld Equestrian Center in Scottsdale for this years Lasso Del Sol event. At stake was more than $150,000 in cash and prizes as the USTRC staff gave a warm welcome to those willing to endure the frigid air and winter conditions. One young team roper who enjoyed some success was 15-year-old Cole

Sherwood from Gilbert, Arizona. The youngster began by winning the overall fast time of the #12 Division with professional trick roper Rider Kiesner. They were 5.96 seconds to accomplish the feat. Sherwood then placed first in the Incentive Average and fifth in the main Average with his cousin Megan. They finished the roping with a time of 38.71 seconds on four steers. The Sherwood duo won $1,908, trophy Gist buckles and $4,000 in USTRC Flex Earnings. In the #11 Division Sherwood teamed up

with his sister, Cheyenne and cousin, Megan to finish second and seventh in the Average. Cheyenne and Cole were 34.84 seconds and won $3,353, trophy Gist buckles and $6,000 in USTRC Flex Earnings. Megan and Cole finished seventh. Forty-six-year-old Salvador Flores from Buckeye, Arizona won the most money at the Lasso Del Sol. He and his partners took home $10,390 in cash, four trophy Martin saddles and $12,000 in USTRC Flex Earnings. He only competed with his kids and his neighbor. continued on page 2

FEBRUARY 2011

Competitorial T

he turning of the calendar always provides reason to be excited about what lays ahead, but this year that especially seems to be the case. I don’t remember when the overall mood among contestants and producers alike felt as energized as it does now. The past few years, undoubtedly driven by a sour economy, seemed to keep anyone or anything from being too exciting… but it looks and feels like that may be changing. Over the past few days I’ve had the opportunity to visit with the newly elected presidents of both the New Mexico Rodeo association (NMRA) and the Grand Canyon Professional Rodeo Association (GCPRA), John Adams and Paul Harmon, respectively. Having done so, it’s hard not to come away with the feeling that good things are on the horizon with regard to rodeo in the Southwest. An unapologetic cynic by reputation, it’s not unusual for me to enter into the initial conversation with a new president of one of these organizations with more than a moderate level of skepticism. “Blah, blah, blah…” it begins, “I’m gonna get things lined out and back on track… blah, blah, blah….” …hey, I told you I was a cynic. However, it wasn’t long into the conversation that I recognized not only

were the things being said the “right things,” but come hell or high water, they were going to get it done. One of the things that struck me first… and it struck me because it’s usually not the case... is that both of them started off by saying nothing but good things about their predecessors. That alone was refreshing to hear as these have been some difficult years for the sport, and it would be pretty easy to come in and start pointing fingers. (My personal two cents on the subject is that anyone who shoulders themselves with the load of this position has to be respected for taking it on, whether you agree or disagree with some of their decisions.) They followed up that sentiment by going out of their way to rain down praise on their respective board members/event directors… Not a bad way to start. This leads me to the second thing that both Adams and Harmon had in common… and in my view the most important ingredient necessary to be successful in the position… NIETHER OF THEM WANTED TO DO IT! I’ve often said that wanting to be the “President” of anything should be the number one reason to be disqualified from the position. It seems both these guys pass that litmus test as neither of them had established sights on occupying the title…

USTRC Lasso del Sol continued “This was a really good roping and one that we enjoy,” said Flores. “I rope with my kids and rope because they like to rope. I started roping in Mexico, but when my kids became involved in 4-H, junior rodeo and team roping, I began roping even more. It is something we can do as a family and I really like that.” Flores began by teaming up with his son Salvador Flores, Jr. in the #11 Division. They pair won the Average with a time of 34.81 seconds on four steers. They win allowed them to pocket $5,030, trophy Martin saddles and $6,000 in USTRC Flex Earnings. “It was so good to win with my son,” said Flores. “We won the #10 last year and that was our first saddles. It was great

to win again.” In the #9 Division Flores really sped things up. He won first and second in the overall fast time with Samuel Marquez and his other son, Armando Flores. The father/son team also finished first place in the main Average with a time of 38.21 seconds on four steers. The Flores team won $4,428, trophy Martin saddles and $6,000 in USTRC Flex Earnings. “It was really special to win with my other son,” said Flores “We were excited about the saddles and it just made our day.” No doubt the Lasso Del Sol will be an event to remember for the Sherwood and Flores families. It was a great event and one that you will certainly want to participate in next year.

and that’s pretty rare. The third thing I couldn’t help but notice is the level of excitement and positive energy they shared for their coming term. Yeah, I know it’s the normal routine to be excited about being the new president, but that’s not what they were excited and energized about. Both these guys are genuinely excited about tackling the tough times ahead, making tough decisions, and finding a way to make the sport better for their membership, their rodeo committees, and their stock contractors. It’s obviously too early to tell if their enthusiasm and commitment will be squelched over time by the unforgiving load and the unappreciated effort that the position demands, but it struck me that these guys were up to the task. One thing for certain is that both guys are coming in with some distinct goals for their respective organizations and again they shared some common ground with regard to what they see as the major challenges ahead. Resurrecting the rough stock end of the arena was one of the specific goals both men mentioned and though they may have differed somewhat as to the specific strategy they would employ to accomplish that goal, they were unknowingly in agreement that the key to long term success lay with developing and nurturing youth competitors. Understandably it doesn’t take a brain surgeon to place that goal at the top of the list, nor is it difficult to find the solution by way of attracting younger contestants. The

difference is that they each have plans to actually do something about it. Bold plans! …all I can say is that it’s about time. Of course they each will face the challenges of the times, and didn’t try to ignore the 2-ton elephant in the room. (I’m just guessing what an elephant weighs since I’ve neither had one nor weighed one.) Economics, as it relates to rodeo, is the real challenge. Rodeo has for some time existed largely in spite of itself. Corporate and small business donations…shrouded in the cloak of “Sponsorships”…have long supported a fledgling rodeo industry. The affects of the economy has had a significant impact on the sport in recent years with the evaporation of these donations. Both Adams and Harmon seem to have a real grasp of the circumstances and at the very least, that’s a start in the right direction. I have to say that I’m looking forward with great anticipation to what’s in store for rodeo in the coming couple of years with these guys at the helm. One thing is certain, now more than ever, strong leadership is crucial. With that in mind and after visiting with each of them, it’s hard not to be encouraged about what lays ahead.

World Series Finale Wrap-Up

P

ress releases on the World Series Finale have pretty well hit all of the publications, and you can find those stories about the winners and a listing of all the winners on our website. We also maintain the results from each Finale in a Champions section within our website. The aftermath of the big ropings has been great, phone traffic in the office has been pretty heavy and we have been scratching our head a little on where do we go from here. I’m sure that will reveal itself to all of us, but for the time being, lets focus in on what just happened. It is hard to look back over a couple of decades of big finals ropings and pick out ones that were better than others. As a producer, it is easy to remember the ones that had problems, but over the years the memories of the really good ones seem to fade quickly and that seems to happen for team ropers also. We are never surprised when we hear someone say, “This is the nicest roping I have ever been to.” We got a lot of those type comments this year, and I believe most are sincere, but then again, event memory is pretty short term. Yes, we think WSTR Finale V was a great one, but not necessarily because of the compliments, but more from the lack of serious complaints. We did receive a few complaints and you will find a few below, but in relation to what we consider normal, there were not that many. It seems that when the cattle are good then the tone of the roping is good. The cattle this year were excellent and Ty Yost has sent us a great set the last two years. This arrangement of using Vegas as the coming out party for his winter cattle seems to be working for all of us. These cattle had been on a corn ration. Even so, about half of them were not real stout and really gave it up during the roping. As the cattle softened up, Keith Wilkerson and Troy Shelley sorted them off before they got too slow, and shipped a load out every other night. This process allowed ropers to rope a lot of the real crème-puffs. This was a good situation because managing consistent turns in a short 230-foot set up is difficult. This arena length is one of the primary reasons we headed toward the WS barrier. It is difficult with this length of arena to maintain my target of having very few 6-second runs, without bouncing people off the back wall. There were hundreds of ropers who won checks in Vegas and we developed a general impression of the competition. As we share our impression with you, focus your attention on the classifications, keeping in mind the amount of work that Arkie’s classification office started with and finished with last year. As you look at these evaluations division by division, pay close attention to the time averages between winners and cut times. I think it will be clear that there really was a classification plan, and it worked. We are pretty serious with our goal that these ropings should be the Richest and Easiest. Here are the main observations that we made concerning each division:

The #13 Finale • The catch percentage was 80%; • 55 teams roped four steers (30 aggregate checks); • More teams caught four steers from rotation 1 & 2 than 3 & 4; • The money cut off was 38 seconds (9.5 per) on four steers;

• Consolation spread was 21.42 to 25.47 (8.5 per); • Reynoso and Wahlert moved from 16th to 3rd, $9,000 to $90,000 with one good run; • Squeaky Terrell and Darin Kirkes moved from 58th to 21st on a good run; • Tyler Bell and Lynden Williams moved from 54th to 30th on a good run.

Conclusion: Even though a lot of teams made it to the short round, the times were not that tight. The cut off time was a little faster than the small qualifiers, but at 38, the cut-off was the same as the big qualifiers. The winners roped well but did not run off with the roping. There were fewer teams making the short round coming out of the third and fourth rotation. We attribute this to ropers watching the leader board on the televisions and thinking they had to be faster than they really needed to be. That situation repeated itself in every single division. Looks like too much information can be harmful.

The #11 Finale • Forty-five teams roped four steers vying for 30 aggregate checks; • The cut off for an aggregate check was 44.16; • More teams roped four from the 1st two rotations than the last two; • Every team past 16th in the aggregate won with a penalty; • There were only seven, six second runs in the entire roping; • Consolation spread was 22.90 to the cut off at 28.09; • Doug Harrigal and Kenny Richardson moved from 55th to 29th • Matt Gingras and David Bearpaw moved from 18th to 4th on 7.63, $8000 to $64,000 improvement.

Conclusion: A little less than half of the four steer teams won with a leg or barrier. This roping was not tight with plenty of room for teams to move up. Classifications were a non-issue and only one team in the money was on our watch list.

The #10 Finale • Thirty-six teams caught four steers; • More teams roped four from the first two rotations than the last two; • Only one team caught four steers under 40 seconds, the money cut was 50.73 (12.68 per); • Consolation range was 24.11 to 31.79; • Only two six second runs in the entire roping; • Only 6, seven second runs in the entire roping; • Shannon McDaniel and Becky Cannizzaro won 5th and $50,000 with two legs. • Both 6th and 7th won with a leg; • Every team beyond 20th placed with two penalties; • Preston Tharp and Bill Porter moved from 51st to 26th on a good run; • Guy Elkins and Kyle Ribble moved from 46th to 20th on a good run; • Natie Johnson and Eddie Scogin moved from 36th to 9th and $22,000.

Conclusion: This is what a #10 roping is supposed to look like. Classifications were a non-issue, but that catch rule caused problems.

Finale V Complaint Department The few complaints that we did receive involved the outside stalls and challenge roping. This was our first attempt at ordering temporary stalls for ropers. After selling all the stalls in the inside, another 260 ropers ordered outdoor stalls. We found a company in California that would bring us exactly the number requested. We sold out of the indoor stalls by 7/1 this year and we didn’t secure the outdoor stalls deal until October. Those on the wait list were contacted one by one and some opted for the outdoor stalls, and many had already made other arrangements. Even though the outdoor stalls were bedded with 4 bags of shavings, we still received complaints about the ground being too rocky leading horses to and from. On the plus side, ropers were pleased to be close to the hotel and happy about the parking lot being close to the stalls. Funny thing was that some of the ropers from up north, who had horses haired up, gave up inside stalls to move outside. In the next few months we will analyze the entire temporary stall, parking issue to see if there is a way to improve it in a better location. The only other source of complaints was the Challenge. There was just no way we could get everyone the runs and time placement they wanted. Many stood in line and didn’t get in. If there is a challenge at all next year, it will be much more tightly supervised.

Membership Options for 2011 Have we got a deal for you! Now don’t be scared this wont be painful at all. Of the four or five major roping associations in the country, we intend to have the most reasonable membership fee every year. Our goal is only to cover the cost of operating a service to our members. In 2010, our first membership year, we priced our memberships at $40 per year. The justification for this being that we calculated $10 to the Classifications contract, $20 for communications (magazine, Etc), and $10 was rebated to the contractors handling and collecting memberships. After we looked at all 2010 costs we lost about $11 per membership. In other words for every $40 membership we sold, we spent $51, resulting in the raise of our membership renewal to $50 this year. Since the real cost to us comes from handling first time members and setting their handicaps, first time memberships will be $60. Here is the real deal, we will give you folks an option to continue paying the $40, but it must be a multi-year deal. We are offering a three year membership for $120 dollars. It’s our thinking that this will minimize hassle for both of us, while passing the savings right back to you. Here are your membership options: Renewal Membership $50 First time Membership $60 Three year option $120 Weekend Permits $20 (Permits must be purchased at least one week in advance of WS qualification events and cannot be purchased the day of an event. Permits are not accepted at Special Fees ropings.) Double Numbers are Free, but...if you ask for them when you apply for the membership they are free. But if you ask for them after you have received you initial card and the classification phone calls made again, print an additional card and do the work—-then $10.

National All Amateurs Arizona Bowl V Wrap Up Total Teams 749 Total Payoff $74,870

A

total of 749 Teams roped at the 2011 Arizona Bowl V held January 14, 15 in Litchfield Park. The teams enjoyed the low entry fees and high payouts – $10,000 for first each day was guaranteed. Friday’s beautiful weather greeted the ropers for the #10 Over 40 roping. With 269 teams, the roping was tight as a 19.79 was the cutoff to make the top 30 short round after two head. Troubles set in the short round with lots of teams having problems including 8 misses in the top 10. Legs placed deep in the average with a 34.10 on three head holding on for 10th in the average. The big win went to Mark Stafford and Keith Jacobs as they nailed their short round steer for a three head average of 22.69 to win $10,000. Saturday was more of the same – low fees, high payouts with 301 teams in the #9 Roping. Traveling partners, Kerry Black and Burke Moore, made a smooth run from the second high call which held on for the win as the number one high back missed. Their tough 21.01 on three head made them a tidy $10,000 for the afternoon. Arizona Bowl V; #10 Warm Up Rotation 1 1. Salvador Flores / Trevor Hatch, 6.9, $250; 2.

NAA Hosts Nearly 1,000 Teams and Awards $61K in Cash and Prizes Over the Weekend

I

ncluding the #10 warm-up roping, the Super 9 on Saturday in Casa Grande, Ariz., on Jan. 8 drew 600 teams and paid out nearly $30,000 in cash and prizes! The awards included trophy saddles not only for the #9 average winners but also for the #7 Incentive champs and the #8 Incentive champs. The roping was only advertised to pay five places, but Yost Events added back more than $9,000 in cash and prizes all the

way down to 17th place in the average. The loot included six saddles, 16 jackets and 26 breast collars to ropers placing in that event. The next day in Wickenburg, the allgirl roping drew 24 teams and paid $740, while 300 teams played in the Century and #9 ropings. What a weekend for Dave Hess, who attended both National All Amateur events over the weekend. He earned $1,100 plus prizes in Casa Grande and then took top honors in the #9 in Wickenburg to earn a saddle and another $950 — all for fees of no more than $50 a run.

2011 NAA Memberships The NAA Memberships are required to rope in any National All Amateur’s event. Your 2011 USTRC gets you a free National All Amateurs card. If you don’t have a 2011 USTRC card, you can purchase an NAA classification for $40 at the event. If you have an Elite number, you can rope in all of our ropings, but the same rules apply. That means two Elites can’t rope together if their combined handicap exceeds the roping number.

Good Run As Told to J.D. Malone

T

he writing team of Philip Murrah “Ask the Flagger” and Bob Phillips “The Cross Roper,” have had a good run. For seven and a half years the friends have jointly written the number-one question and answer column “Ask the Flagger.” A special Thank You is given to Mr. Bob Feist, owner and Stephanie Anderson, general manager of the Ropers Sports News, who first agreed to carry the column (September 2003). We would like to continue with Thanks to the additional eight team roping publications and two team roping web sites, MONTH FEB 11 that over the years also carried the columns. They included; The All Around, The Northwest Ropers News, Rodeo News, The Roping Pen, Arizona Jackpot, The Wrangler, The Dally Times and recently The Cowboy

BUILT BY CR - VSA

Times. The Web Sites are TeamRoper.com and Midwestropersnews. Both Bob and Philip would also like to thank, Mr. Lory Merritt of WRANGLER shirt and jeans for sponsoring the column and supplying the individuals with a certificate for a new pair of jeans. When Philip Murrah was asked if he would like to continue submitting the “Ask the Flagger” column he replied: “Bob and I started it together and we will finish it together.” Bob and Philip have from way back. Bob IN HOUSE PROOF been friends CRX’D was fascinated by the acuteness and accuracy that Philip used in performing his duties as a flagger. At the Conyer, Georgia USTRC roping in 2003 Bob approached

Philip with the idea of maybe starting a flagging school. Bob felt at that time (and still does) that there should be a standard uniformity to flagging team roping events, regardless of the organization. Philip agreed with the need, but felt that maybe a question and answer column might serve the continuous questions by team ropers that he was constantly confronted with. Bob, in a phone conversation with an ol’ Army buddy/team roper Roy Rodriguez from Michigan, confronted him with the idea he and Philip were rolling around. The next statement out of Roy’s mouth was, “I have a question” and thus, “Ask the Flagger” was created. Bob was already writing a Christian column to ropers called “The Cross Roper,” and he simply added the new column to his submissions and an era was born… Philip, employed by the USTRC, enjoys his duties with the organization and is passionate about the integrity of the sport, which is why he is regarded as the industries top professional flagger. Although the column comes to an end Philip will continue his busy schedule flagging USTRC ropings and numerous other events he officials each year. In a phone conversation about ending the column Philip remarked, “Everything comes to an end. My intention in creating the column was to educate the ropers of the numerous differences which arise in rules of different organizations. For this reason many times the column included the remark; ‘know the rule of the event you are competing in.’” “By the number of ropers that approached me over the years explaining they had read the column, it was apparent that “Ask the Flagger” was well received in the team roping world. I would like to thank God for the life style I was granted to live. My wife Tammy for the many times she gave encouragement with reaching a precise answer that I was not quite sure of how to word, and Bob Phillips for submitting the column to the various publications after dotting the I’s and crossing the T’s. It’s been a Good Run with the column and I hope everyone enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.” Bob Phillips, after surviving an industrial accident, which presented him an opportunity to start writing about team roping as a way to stay active, will retire to the life of associate Pastor of the “High Desert Cross” cowboy church. Bob helped create the church last year. His duties include Bible studies, trail ride revivals, cowboy breakfasts, and hopefully a lot more fishing than he has been able to do in years! What started as a hobby for Bob turned into a kind of ministry for team ropers across America with his “Cross Ropers” column. He touched many hearts and opened ropers’ eyes with his biblical ways of common sense and patriotism. Unknowingly Bob has already been doing the most rewarding fishing known to man. Bob’s catch has not gone into a frying pan; instead he has caught and released readers’ hearts toward God. He is one of the greatest fishers of men to ever grace the pages of roping and rodeo magazines across the nation. His passion for the Lord and for the sport of team roping will be greatly missed by readers everywhere.

USTRC News and Updates A Word From Kirk Bray I recently read that when the the RitzCarlton Hotels won the Malcolm Baldrige (who by the way, was a team roper) National Quality Award, the owner of that outstanding organization, Mr. William Johnson, stated that now they would need to work even harder to earn the respect that came with the award. “Quality,” he said, “is a race with no finish line.” According to some fine research by Natalie Gabal, if 99.9% were considered good enough, then this year alone . . . 2,000,000 documents would be lost by the IRS; 12 babies would be given to the wrong parents each day; 291 pacemaker operations would be performed incorrectly; 20,000 incorrect drug prescriptions would be written – to cite just a few examples. Excellence has also been what USTRC strives for. Rest assured 2011 will bring you the same great quality in production and customer service you have come to expect and deserve. Happy New Year!

Flex Earnings Anyone? The verdict is in. Ropers are saying that the USTRC Flex Earnings program is the way to go and has helped them utilize their earnings better than ever before.

Still, how do Flex Earnings work and why are they an important part of making it to a Regional or National Finals event? Think of the “earnings” as “points” that qualify you to a Regional or National Finals. Besides being able to accumulate Flex Earnings (points) by placing at USTRC sanctioned events, your USTRC membership alone entitles you to receive Flex Earnings as well. Upon participation at a USTRC sanctioned or affiliate roping Gold Spur members automatically receive $1,000 in Flex Earnings while Gold Plus members receive $3,000 in Flex Earnings. All Flex Earnings are considered “generic,” which means you will have the flexibility to spend your Flex Earnings (points) as you choose (Regional Finals or National Finals), with whom you choose and in any division you choose.

Additionally, each contestant has the ability to earn at least $500 in bonus money by appearing at autograph sessions and making public appearances on behalf of RODEOHOUSTON. Total cash commitment for RODEOHOUSTON BP Super Series contestants exceeds $1.7 million. “Having the US Open Championships recognized as a qualifier to one of the most prestigious rodeos in the sport today is a huge compliment to the structure and integrity of USTRC,” said President Kirk Bray. “This makes the Cinch USTRC National Finals of Team Roping Open Championship that much more valuable to our top ropers.” USTRC Open Champions The BP Super Series will feature To Be Invited to invited championship contestants in RodeoHouston Invitational bareback riding, bull riding, saddle bronc riding, steer wrestling, tie-down roping, USTRC Open ropers will have another team roping and women’s barrel racing. reason to make their way to the Cinch As in previous years, the 19-performance USTRC National Finals of Team Roping RODEOHOUSTON BP Super Series will each year as an invitation to feature five series of three rounds each RODEOHOUSTON’s International with eight contestants per event – except Invitational will be at stake.

2011 Rough Stock Event Was Captivating

he turn of the New Year always brings a smile to the faces of bronc and bull riders in the Southwest. Why? Well because they are probably heading towards one of the biggest and best rough stock events of the year – The Bares, Broncs & Bulls Spectacular. This years event marked fifteen years and contestants from all across the country converged on McGee Park in Farmington, New Mexico for a chance to brave one of Casper Baca’s tough broncs or awesome bucking bulls for a chance to start 2011 off with a large chunk of change in their pocket. With $500 added per event, as well as sterling silver buckles to event winners and silver Red Bluff watch bands to Reserve champions, it is no wonder cowboys showed up in groves to compete. This kind of money and prizes make this an awesome event, but the timing of the annual event adds a lot to it as well. Not only is it the first big event of the New Year, but it is really the first event that competitors can enter since the end of the previous season that in many cases have been over for over a month or two. This often allows a refreshed presence from the competitors that include not only injuries, but even a kind of renewed and clear mindset for a lot of them. This makes the Bares, Broncs, & Bulls a great spectator event where talented cowboys give it their all.

According to Baca, this event seems to draw better than many of the others he produces throughout the year. “We had about 20 bronc riders, 15 bareback riders and 70 to 75 novice and open bull riders,” Said Baca. “That is more than many other rodeos get and it has always been a great event.” This years like all others in the past was filled with solid rides and big scores in every event from cowboys who traveled to Farmington from all across the Southwest, as well as a few local favorites who rose to the occasion to make great rides, thrilling the crowds. Top bareback rider Tyler Staker traveled over from Taylor, Arizona to thrill the crowd with a 78 point ride on a great bucking horse, Gambler. Staker’s ride earned him the top spot where he collected a $475 check and one of 2011 first trophy buckles. One of New Mexico’s best bronc riders once again topped the scoreboard in the saddle bronc riding event. Robert Aragon of Salono, NM, rode the bronc Bad Day to 73 championship points to win the event and collect $613 in prize money. Many of the up-and-comers in the world of bull riding threw their hat into the arena in the novice bull riding at this year’s Bares, Broncs, & Bulls Spctacular. In the end, Wesley Pablo of nearby Kirkland, New

Mexico topped the novice bull Kit Kat and posted a 75 point ride to win $318 in cash. The thrill of the Open bull riding had everyone on the edge of their seats and finished with huge score posted by a hothanded local cowboy. Joseph McConnel from Bloomfoeld, New Mexico posted 90 point the great bucking bull Brody and collected the first place Open bull riding payout of $1,426 in cash. All of this years competitors made for a thrilling January 7-8 weekend in Farmington, New Mexico and kicked off 2011 n great style. Thenext event on many bronc and bull riders agenda is definitely the Baca Series which begin on February 12 and will run for 5 strait weekends in Belen, New Mexico. This will be the 35th annual event and will once again be one of this year’s great event. Cowboys will be able to compete on Saturday or Sunday afternoons for great cash payouts, as well as a chance to be named 2011 Baca Series champion. This years event will host not only the three main rough stock events, bareback riding, saddle bronc riding and Open bull riding, but will also host several kids events. These include sheep riding, calf riding, steer riding, novice bull riding and a 12 and under barrel race. The Baca Series is always great and has been a signature event to win throughout

The Battle Is On! The Timed Event Championship Of The World Returns To The Lazy E Arena – It’s Champion Vs. Champion

T

he stage is set for one of the best battles ever to take place in a rodeo arena. The Timed Event Championship of the World (TEC) will return to the Fabulous Lazy E Arena on March 4th, 5th, and 6th, 2011 in Guthrie, Oklahoma. The “Ironman Event of Pro Rodeo” will showcase a “Champion vs. Champion” format that includes a cast of Pro Rodeo all stars including 6-time TEC and 14-time PRCA World Champion Trevor Brazile and last year’s Champion – All-Around cowboy Josh Peek of Pueblo, Colorado. The TEC annually features twenty of the world’s best cowboys in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) competing in pro rodeo’s most unique event that is often referred to as “The Ironman” — it is a true test of versatility and stamina. Each contestant is required to compete in all five timed events: tie-down roping, steer roping, heading, heeling and steer wrestling – over five rounds in three days. Each round of competition features excitement with the leaders changing after every run, with only seconds separating them. The champion isn’t determined until the last rope is thrown, the flag is dropped and the clock has stopped. The TEC was developed by the Lazy E in 1985 to determine the best all-around timed event cowboy in the world — the man who could stand out in more than his specialty event, the man who could be consistent in all five timed events. The

majority of today’s professional rodeo cowboys no longer compete in multiple events, but specialize in one, possibly two. This event attracts the biggest names in the rodeo industry that correlates into 45 World Championship titles, in addition to thousands of fans representing 48 states from across the country! Some of the Champions scheduled to compete for the $150,000.00 purse against the current “King of Rodeo” Trevor Brazile and the defending Champion - Josh Peek, include K.C. Jones, Kyle Lockett, Jimmie Cooper, Paul Tierney, Daniel Green, Russell Cardoza, Steve Duhon, Scott Snedecor and Ryan Jarrett. Families will enjoy all of the activities planned for the performances. VIP ticket prices are $37…Box Seats $30…Reserved Bleachers $25…and General Admission $20. Children 10 and under FREE in general admission thanks to KWTV News 9. Group and multiple performance discounts are also available…call (800) 595RIDE for complete details. A portion of the proceeds from the 2011 Timed Event Championship will be donated to the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City. The Lazy E is proud to support this institution for Western preservation! Tickets are available at all ticketmaster outlets, www.lazye.com, calling Ticketmaster (800) 745-3000 or by calling the Lazy E Arena directly at (800) 595-RIDE.

In 2009, Peek was leading the Timed Event Championship with one run left. He took a 60-second time in the steer roping, the equivalent of a no-time at the TEC, and dropped to a fourth place finish. Last year, he was again leading the average with one run remaining. This time, the 30year-old tied his steer down in 18.4 seconds to clinch the title of 2010 Timed Event Champion of the World with 315.2 on 25 runs. He was the 11th man to win the title in the 26 years of the TEC. Peek went to the lead in the third round on the 14th run of the weekend. However, on the 19th run a fast running draw led to a 27.5 in the steer wrestling. He would end the fourth go in second place. In the fifth round, Peek dropped to third. The team roping - heeling shuffled the deck as K.C. Jones of Burlington, Wyo., a four-time TEC Champion, dropped to third. Trevor Brazile of Decatur, Texas, a six-time TEC Champion, moved to the lead in the average and Peek went to second after 23 head. In the steer wrestling, Brazile had a tough steer, suffering a 60-second time. So, Peek tossed his draw in 4.1 seconds for 296.8 on 24 and the lead, with one run remaining. Jones was second. In the steer roping, Jones was 18-seconds for 343.0 on 25. Peek needed to be 46.1 for the win and was 18.4. In addition to winning $50,000 for the average, Peek, a two-time PRCA Reserve All- Around World Champion, placed twice in the fast rounds and exited


ll-Around the years. Many great champions have won the Baca Series title and many others have attended and made their mark in the rodeo arena at this event. For Baca, he hopes this years event is just as successful as the many before it has been and hopes that many more can claim their championship status at ‘The Baca Series’ for many years to come. 2011 Bares Broncs & Bulls Spectacular Farmington, New Mexico, January 7-8, 2011 Bareback Riding 1.

PRCA Shorts Trevor Brazile Watch - 2011 It’s waaaay too soon to be talking about another Triple Crown season for Trevor Brazile. And yet … After leaving the SandHills Stock Show & Rodeo in Odessa, Texas, with $7,693 and the all-round title, Brazile finds himself in the top 10 in the PRCA World Standings in all three roping events. Brazile won two rounds of the steer roping – including a rodeo-best run of 9.6 seconds – and the average to take over the lead in that event. He’s also first in the tiedown roping standings and eighth among team roping headers. In the all-around, he’s one of only two contestants to have met the qualification standards, and his $21,267 is more than double that of second-place Paul David Tierney, the son of ProRodeo Hall of Fame inductee Paul Tierney. Brazile is expected to qualify for Denver’s 12-man finals in tie-down roping after turning in preliminary times of 8.5 and 9.8 seconds last weekend. If that’s not enough, he and his partner, Patrick Smith, are expected to make the cut after posting runs of 5.8 and 5.6 at the Denver Coliseum.

Coopers Claim Team Roping Title at Mesquite Championship Rodeo Jake and Jim Ross Cooper, the first identical twins to qualify for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in team roping when they managed it in 2007, are serving notice they may be ready for a return trip to Las Vegas. Only this time they won’t be doing it together.

Jake will be heading for Justin Wade Davis this year, and Jim Ross will pair with Brandon Beers. The fact that the 26-year-old brothers entered the Dec. 28-29 Mesquite Championship Rodeo and won the thing – in what is likely to be their only appearance together in 2011 – well, that was just an odd twist of fate. “I keep the (schedule) books,” Jake Cooper said, “and I almost forgot about Mesquite. I wasn’t paying attention. There was a lot going on during the holidays, and I didn’t get the entry posted until the morning before the books closed. “Neither of our new partners was available, so we just decided to rope together.” Luckily, it was a case where familiarity bred success. The Coopers’ time of 4.5 seconds was one-tenth of a second faster than Luke Brown and Martin Lucero managed in their first appearance since winning the Wrangler NFR average title Dec. 2-11. The win paid each Cooper a rodeo-best $2,130. It was the first win in a PRCA rodeo for the Coopers since the Livermore (Calif.) Rodeo last June, shortly before the brothers parted ways. Jake Cooper won the Grand National Stock Show & Rodeo in San Francisco and earned checks in Kansas City and Billings, Mont., with Matt Garza to take the lead in the 2011 PRCA World Standings for headers. The partnership with Garza ended in late fall because Jake had already made a commitment to rope with Davis and Garza was set to heel for David Key.

Cowboys Help Raise Money for Burn Survivors The win in team roping allowed Jim Ross Cooper – who was also entered in the tie-down roping – to win the Mesquite all-around title. “We (the brothers) had a little bit of success together,” Jake Cooper said, “but we decided we spend so much time together that we’d try some time apart for a couple of years and see how that works.”

PRCA Milestones Aplenty to Watch for in the Weeks Ahead Before Trevor Brazile becomes ProRodeo’s first $4 million cowboy sometime this summer – he’s $90,418 away – there are lots of other milestones to watch for much nearer on the horizon. • Eight-time World Champion Fred Whitfield is just $16,428 away from becoming the sport’s third $3 million cowboy, joining Brazile and Billy Etbauer. • Seven-time World Champion Team Roping Header Jake Barnes needs just $40,080 to become the 17th PRCA contestant to surpass $2 million in career earnings and join his long time partner Clay O’Brien Cooper. • There are a handful of guys who are days or weeks away from reaching the $1 million plateau, following J.W. Harris who made it there at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. Bareback rider Royce Ford is the closest, standing just $4,094 away from reaching seven figures, followed by bull rider Wesley Silcox ($4,149), team roper Cory Petska ($6,709) and steer wrestler/tiedown roper Ryan Jarrett ($13,901).

PRCA cowboys and those in the Western world raised $11,681.50 for burn survivors Whitney Alderson, 18, and Rayche’ll Ochoa, 15, in an online auction Dec. 16-18 to help the girls’ families with medical expenses. The cowgirls were burned in a trailer explosion at a rodeo in September in Arizona. The auction was part of Alderson/Ochoa Benefit Team Roping Dec. 18 at the Tucson (Ariz.) Rodeo Grounds. The 2010 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo jacket of 14-time World Champion Trevor Brazile was the biggest money maker at $2,050, followed by a guided mule deer hunt that went for $1,000. Merchandise was also donated by 2008 World Champion Tie-Down Roper, Stran Smith and two-time World Champion Heeler Walt Woodard. Wrangler NFR team roper Travis Tryan and eight-time World Champion Heeler Rich Skelton auctioned off a two-hour roping lesson to raise money. Country singers George Strait and Clay Walker also had items in the auction. A full summary of the auction results is posted on the Auction Systems: Auctioneers & Appraisers website: www.auctionandappraise.com/home.html

PRCA Team Roper Pairings A quick look at the entries at the SandHills Stock Show & Rodeo in Odessa, Texas, shows only a couple of significant changes in team roping pairings from last season. Colby Lovell is paired with Cory Petska, after a very successful season heading for Kory Koontz, and two-time World Champion Header Matt Sherwood is roping with Travis Woodard.

Ermey, Allan Join PBR TV Broadcasts Mail Call host, Multi-platinum Artist Added to Opening The Professional Bull Riders, along with executive producer and creative lead David Neal, announced that 2011 Built Ford Tough Series television broadcasts will include the distinctive voices of talented character actor R. Lee Ermey and multi-platinum country artist Gary Allan. The BFTS is televised in HD every week on VERSUS with select events being shown on NBC and CBS. Coverage in 2011 begins with the season opener from worldfamous Madison Square Garden in New York. VERSUS will air its coverage on Saturday, Jan. 8, at 8 p.m. ET and NBC will air its broadcast on Sunday, Jan. 9, at 2:30 p.m. ET. Beginning in 2011, all Built Ford Tough Series telecasts will be produced for the PBR by David Neal Productions, a Los Angeles-based production company led by the 30-time Emmy® Award winner and Peabody Award winner. Neal worked with NBC Sports over a 30-year career and was responsible for some of the network’s most memorable broadcasts. He was executive producer for NBC Sports for the past five years, responsible for all NBC Sports productions, following five years as executive vice president for NBC Olympics. Ermey, who is best known for his military roles, will open each broadcast with a review of previous events and a preview of the upcoming action. Allan has adapted his hit single, “Get Off on the Pain,” to reflect the action of the PBR.

“Having R. Lee Ermey’s unmistakable voice at the beginning of our PBR telecasts is a match made in heaven,” said Neal. “And Gary Allan’s re-imagined recording of his hit ‘Get Off on the Pain’ will instantly become our signature sound for the PBR on television.” A veteran of 60-plus feature films, Ermey is best known for his Golden Globe nominated role as Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in “Full Metal Jacket.” He has reached a new audience in recent years, voicing the character of Sarge in the “Toy Story” series. He served as the host of “Mail Call” for eight seasons, and more recently, “Lock N’ Load with R. Lee Ermey,” both on The History Channel. And,

he is currently appearing in the popular commercials for Geico Insurance. Raised on a farm in Emporia, Kansas, Ermey’s favorite footwear is a pair of cowboy boots, and he has experience breaking horses and raising cattle. “I have always loved the PBR and I am a huge fan,” said Ermey. “When they approached me about coming on board, it was a match made in heaven. It’s a no brainer. “This sport is all about confidence. If you’ve got it, you can win,” he added. “Man versus beast. These boys are the best of the best.” Ermey was in the Marine Corps for 11 years, including two as a Drill Instructor. He did a 14-month tour of Vietnam, and two tours in Japan. He was medically retired with the rank of Staff Sergeant in 1972. On May 17, 2002, he received an honorary promotion from the Commandant of the Marine Corps to Gunnery Sergeant, becoming the first retiree in the history of the Marine Corps to be promoted. Inspired by Gary Allan’s customized,

PBR-themed rewrite and re-recording of his hit “Get Off on the Pain,” the opening video for the PBR’s 2011 television season was shot on high-speed film at the 2010 PBR World Finals in Las Vegas. Multiple awardwinning cinematographer Scott Duncan teamed with PBR creative producer Cory Kelley to showcase the world’s toughest sport in dramatic fashion. “Cory and Scott have captured the riders and bulls on film in a fabulous, cinematic style that portrays the power, danger and athleticism of the PBR” said Neal. “Combined with Gary Allan’s terrific new recording, this is the ideal way to launch our new presentation of the PBR on national television.” Allan performed in front of 46,500 fans, the largest North American crowd in PBR history, at the Dickies® Iron Cowboy Invitational presented by WinStar World Casino on Feb. 20, 2010. Allan has sold more than 6 million albums, and performed before sellout crowds across the country. He released back-to-back platinum albums which resulted in a string of No. 1 and Top 10 hits. Named “Country’s Mainstream Maverick” by Rolling Stone magazine, Allan has blazed a trail on his own terms, making him a perfect fit for the PBR. The 2011 BFTS season begins at worldfamous Madison Square Garden on Jan. 7-9. It concludes Oct. 26-30 in Las Vegas with the PBR World Finals, where the 2011 PBR World Champion will be crowned and awarded the $1 million bonus.

learer skies, warmer weather and the ill-comfort of being indoors has me ready for spring. I know it is only February, but I have a lot on my plate and I am itching to get started on the many things I want to get done this coming year. I am sure there are a lot of you out there who feel the same and are ready to welcome spring and summer and the great outdoor events that come with them. With that said, I don’t have much dirt to throw this month. Instead, I want to share a few things out of a couple of different emails I received over the past few months. Have a good laugh on me this month and I will dig up some dirt for March.

Pull your pants up. You look like an idiot. They are cattle. That’s why they smell like cattle. They smell like money to us. Get over it. Don’t like it? I-10 & I-40 go east and west, I-17 & I-15 go north and south. Pick one and go. Every person in the “Wild West” waves. It’s called being friendly. Try to understand the concept. Yeah. We eat trout, salmon, deer and elk. You really want sushi and caviar? It’s available at the corner bait shop.

Other great one-liners If I agreed with you, we’d both be wrong. Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience. Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars in the sky, but check when you say the paint is wet? Why do Americans choose from just two people to run for president and 50 for Miss America? Evening news is where they begin with ‘Good evening,’ and then proceed to tell you why it isn’t. A diplomat is someone who can tell you to go to hell in such a way that you will look forward to the trip. You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive more than once. The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas! I always take life with a grain of salt... plus a slice of lemon... and a shot of tequila. Some cause happiness wherever they go. Others whenever they go.

We open doors for women. That’s applied to all women, regardless of age.

Some people are like Slinky’s... not really good for anything, but you can’t help smiling when you see one tumble down the stairs.

No, there’s no ‘vegetarian special’ on the menu. Order steak, or you can order the Chef’s Salad and pick off the two pounds of ham and turkey.

ARIZONA JUNIOR RODEO ASSOCIATION Schedule of Events February 12 – 13 Globe, AZ EC – February 2, 2011 March 18 – 19 TBA EC – March 2, 2011 April 16 – 17 Wilcox, AZ EC – March 31 May 21 – 22 Prescott, AZ EC – May 5 June 18 – 19 AJRA Finals – TBA

Hello to all AJRA Members, Past and Future I’m sure that you have all been wondering just what in the heck are those guys doing? Simply put, we have had a lot of work put on us because of the way that the past year and a half has gone. As you all know we have had a lot of turnover in our President and Secretary positions. I would like to begin by commending Brian Keaveney for stepping in and salvaging what was left of last year and holding things together as best he could. It seems as though previous leadership could only think about how we could spend our kids’ money and give SADDLES. No one happened to think about where we were going to rodeo this year; some were even giving up on the AJRA. We all don’t want to loose sight of the fact that this association is all about the kids. Not just our kids but future kids as well. If we want to see our great way of life continue in Arizona then we need to think like the founders of our association; referring to the rule book charter page…. 1) The AJRA is organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes and to maintain standards and guidelines set by the AJRA among its members. 2) To promote the Christian principals upon which the AJRA was founded and to encourage members to exhibit characteristics consistent with these ideals. That’s just the first two items, if you haven’t read it you can find them at our website under “forms”. I’m sure I stepped on a few toes by publishing this, but that’s the way I feel about it. Now for some information: Destry Haught will again be our stock contractor this year. I think that he did a good job last year and will improve this year.Our schedule is still a work in progress. Florence will be our first rodeo October 22 and 23. We looked at going to Sonoita late in September and even contacted them but we felt time was too short to make it happen. The next rodeo scheduled is in Casa Grande with the local posse there sponsoring us on November 13 and 14. We will break for the holidays and come back hopefully in Wickenburg on the 22 and 23 of January, this one is tentative and still in the works. February is a wild card we have a couple of places to talk to but for now that’s it. March should be a real good one if it all comes together at the Pro Arena in Tucson.

They are real interested in us for the 19 and 20 of March. April is Wilcox on the 16 and 17 and Prescott is May 21 and 22. The finals will be back in Payson on the 17 and 18. The format for the finals is going to be the traditional top 10 only. This was discussed by the board at the last meeting. Julie Keaveny will be posting the minutes of those last two meetings soon so look at the website for any further decisions or rule changes. Also our first fundraiser of the year will be a saddle raffle donated by Corky Irons of Dynamite Horsemans Supply. Tickets will be given out at Florence and more info to follow. I am real excited about our coming season and together I think we can do great things. God Bless and Adios, Travis Bates

Letter to the members of the New Mexico Rodeo Association from John Adams, NMRA President. Dear NMRA Members: Hello NMRA members from the frozen tundra of northern New Mexico. Ye,s those Channel 7 news reports of the below zero temperatures have not been exaggerated, but the bright side is that it gives me more time to sit by the fire and work on the business of the NMRA. I hope Santa brought everyone what they wanted for Christmas. I feel sure we will see a host of new shiny headstalls and maybe a few squeaky saddles at the Ty Wayborn. I look forward to seeing all of you there. The first 2011 NMRA board meeting was held Saturday, January 8 at the Hard Rock in Albuquerque. I cannot stress to you enough what truly great choices you members made with your picks for directors. It was a privilege and a pleasure to spend the day with a room full of tremendously talented individuals. I would like to welcome Jessie Briscoe (LBR), Scott McLeod (SW), Travis Briscoe (BR) and Stony Newfang (judging coordinator) to the board as your new directors for 2011. We had a very productive meeting and despite my slightly overloaded agenda, the directors pushed hard and we made it through with meaningful results. I believe I can speak for all of the board members when

NMRA-Approved Field Secretaries - 2010

I say that we came together as a unified group in a surprisingly positive light. We all left that day excited and looking forward to implementing the many great programs and ideas that came out during the days work. I consider my self fortunate to have the opportunity to work with this classy group of people. We have several committees working on important projects for both the upcoming winter convention as well as the entire rodeo season. I will do my best to keep you updated on our projects via the NMRA web page, so look at it often as changes to the web page are coming. I want to extend a personal invitation to all NMRA members, stock contractors, officials and rodeo committees to the 2011 NMRA winter convention which will be held at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Albuquerque on February 11. This is your convention and I sincerely hope to see you there. Consult the NMRA web page for a list of events. I am looking forward to a new and improved NMRA rodeo season, but we need your help. We need you to tell us what you would like to see from the rodeo season but we also need you to join the NMRA and enter the rodeos. My door is always open, so please don’t hesitate to let me know how you feel. Good luck and we will see you at the Hard Rock in February.

By Sunday evening, the Central Entry Secretary declared Donovan Yazzie as the All Around Champion, winning an equine chiropractic certificate from Dr. Bill Hampton of Pagosa Springs, CO. Yazzie placed third in steer wrestling while also entering the tie down roping event.

“Without all you fine people, we would not have a mighty fine rodeo association that is second to none. You are the spokes and wheels of our 1957 wagon that began a historic journey. Let us continue to pull together in harmony.” – AIRCA President Harrison Charley The AIRCA 2011 Membership Drive Rodeo event champions include: Young cowboy Byron Murphy – Steer Wrestling; Two time world champion Gerald Daye – Tie Down Roping; PRCA cowboy Craig Begay – Bull Riding; Professional school teacher Leander Thomas – Saddle Bronc; White Cone, AZ cowboy Earl Tsosie – Bareback; AIRCA 2008 Membership Drive Rodeo Champion Melissa Trujillo – Ladies Barrel Racing; Twin Lakes, NM cowgirl Twila Jones – Ladies Breakaway Roping; Bill Dahozy and Myles John – Open Team Roping; Ty Dayzie and Eyron Cowboy - #10 Team Roping; 2010 World Champion Leonard Williams Sr. – Senior Breakaway Roping; Deven Sells – Junior Barrel Racing; and 2010 junior bull riding champion Cody Johnson – Junior Bull Riding. On the path forward for AIRCA in 2011, the rodeo sponsors meeting and contract personnel recertification will take place on a date to be determined in February 2011 followed by more rodeos in the outdoors beginning April 2011 (weather permitting). AIRCA is calling upon all rodeo committees to join. AIRCA President Harrison Charley expressed optimism for 2011, “Let’s continue AIRCA rodeo at its best in 2011. Thank you to all the integral components that make AIRCA whole such as rodeo fans, rodeo committees, business sponsors, contract personnel, and of course our cowboys and cowgirls. Without all you fine people, we would not have a mighty fine association that is second to none. You are the spokes and wheels of our 1957 wagon that began a historic journey for our Indian contestants – a journey with many wonderful milestones. Let’s continue to pull together in harmony.” Together, let’s continue riding on our history making journey as more and more contestants spawn off AIRCA to the PRCA, the likes of current successful contestants Derrick Begay, Spud Jones, Aaron Tsinnigine, Erich Rogers, Brooks Dahozy, Craig Begay, Guytin Tsosie, Donovan Yazzie and Debbie Robbins, to name a few.” With that, rodeo season 2010 became a chapter for the history books and 2011 is now a challenge for those who “cowboy up.” All Around Champion - Donovan Yazzie Placed third in the Steer Wrestling, and entered other events - $338 in cash and Equine Chiropractic gift certificate Steer Wrestling 1.

2010/2011 Series Wraps Up! The 2010/11 Bosque Farms Jr. Rodeo Winter Series came to a close in great style on the weekend of January 8-9. The threeweekend series had great luck with weather beginning in October with an event in November and the final two-day event in January. The annual BFJR Winter Series has become one of the major stepping stones for young rodeo talent over the years and the success of this year’s event tends to imply that there will be many more for many years to come. A new board of directors set in motion a great event format that proved successful in accommodating the large number of kids competing each weekend. This evolved into a great series that parents and kids alike enjoyed. The series completed on Sunday afternoon with awards going home with not only the top six boy and girl AllAround Champions in each of the four age groups, but everyone who attended and paid their award fee was given something to remember their hard work and determination in this year’s rodeo series. Top awards included Cowboy Classic saddles to All-Around champions, Hendren buckles and Dutton trophy bits to Reserve Champions and trophy Wade pads to third place All-Around Champions. Fourth place received Hendren trophy stirrups, while fifth took home custom breast collars and sixth place All-Around champions received Dutton trophy spurs. All other All-Around qualifiers were awarded with prizes that included buckles, bits, pads, rope bags and more. All timed event qualifiers also received custom headstalls. Rough stock competitors were awarded with great prizes as well. Buckles, bull riding helmets, protective vests, spurs and bull riding ropes of all sizes were awarded to the top winners in every event. With success of the 2010/11 season coming to a close, the future of the event is bright. Kids of all ages can count on this series coming to light again at the end of the year with perhaps even more events and changes to this series to help make it bigger and better than ever before. Look for the BFJRA news and info for all of these exciting ideas in the coming months.

C T A R R PO RE 6th Annual Christmas Ca$h Barrel Race Amarillo, Texas Produced by CBT Productions

T

he 6th Annual Christmas Ca$h barrel race in Amarillo, Texas saw another growth in contestant numbers, an increase in added money and a grey gelding and his sandy- blonde-headed rider from Colorado City, Texas take home nearly $5,700 for their three very consistent runs! Callie Chamberlain and Dat Flowin Bunny ran 15.2s every time they entered the alleyway of the Amarillo National Center arena the weekend of December 4-5, 2010. On Saturday, as runner #17 in the CBT Challenge Race, Chamberlain ran a 15.273 to win $2,500. Her time was a carryover into Saturday’s 4D race, sponsored by Tandem Oral, placing her second in the 1D and winning an additional $897. On Sunday, the pair returned to the arena to win Round #2, sponsored by Cowboy Times & Branson Tractors, with a 15.290, adding $1,139 to their wallet. Then in Sunday’s 82-runner bonus round, sponsored by Rancher’s Supply, their 15.255 placed them second in the round, pocketing another $852. When the books were completed, they had also won the 2-run average that determines the Christmas Ca$h Champions. This title earned them a Hy-O-Silver belt buckle and a $300 cash bonus! There were a few runs faster than Chamberlain’s and Dat Flowin Bunny’s, but none more consistent. Saturday’s Round #1 winner was Nichole Mock on Chex, running a 15.213 and taking home $1,136. And then in the bonus round, Kelly Garrison running Senor La Jolla, clocked a 15.184, the fastest clean run of the weekend. The bonus round win awarded Garrison $1,136 and placed her second in the 1D average, awarding her a $50 Formula 707 gift certificate. When Chamberlain’s average time was calculated, it set the pace for the other average winners to be determined. They were as follows: 2D average winner-Kirsten Pohnert on Wranglers Fire Fly; 2D reserve average winner-Katie Jolly on Teddy; 3D average winner-Brandy Wright on Lookin Back Smokin; 3D reserve average winnerToni Horkley on Hollywood Night Dude; 4D average winner-Wanda Eakin with Fifty Lena Freckles; 4D reserve average winner-Josey Groves with Express It To Me; 5D average winner-ShiAnn Nash with Fred; and 5D reserve average winner was Brecklyn Kennedy riding Grande. Each average winner received a Hy-O-Silver belt buckle and a $300 cash bonus. Reserve average winners received a $50 Formula 707 gift certificate.

Located in one of the most secluded and lush areas in Tucson, this ranch estate has been in the same family for more than 30 years and has just now become available. Professionally landscaped grounds surround the home with mature trees, rose gardens, extensive lighting, automatic irrigation and fruit orchards. Proximity to shopping conveniences but extreme seclusion makes this home a unique opportunity. There are endless horse trails to be explored but one doesn’t have to leave the house to watch the deer, javelina, hawks, owls, quail, fox and bobcats as this ranch provides water and refuge for these and many other native animals.

Animals Can Hurt You

I

f you see a couple of fellows walking down the road, both wearing cowboytype garb, how will you know which one is the for-real cowboy? Here’s a few hints. The real cowboy will be bow-legged and will limp a bit. As he gets closer, you notice one arm seems to stay bent all the time. His hands, though, are a pure-dee giveaway. He’s probably missing one or more digits, and some of the remaining fingers point a different direction than their neighbors. You won’t see him make a fist. Now he’s close enough you can see his head. One ear is missing a part or two. His nose points a bit sideways, causing him to sniff often. When he smiles, a few gaps in his teeth are revealed. And the teeth not yet among the missing are brown – the color of Copenhagen snuff. At the recently completed Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, Nevada, the Justin Sports Medicine team was busy. Along with the bullfighters, who take many hits meant for fallen cowboys, the sports medicine team saves lives almost every performance. The cowboys are grateful, and often express their appreciation and admiration. Our real cowboy walking down the road probably didn’t have anyone to help when he had his wrecks. Rube, one I know, has part of his breastbone permanently pulled away from his insides. He told me he was bringing a herd of horses from Arizona to New Mexico. It was just after sundown,

and they came upon a narrow, deep arroyo. The horse herd all jumped across. The horse he was riding couldn’t make up his mind. He slammed on the brakes, throwing his rider a bit forward, then changed his mind and jumped. “I was riding one of those old-fashioned silverhorn saddles,” he said. “That metal horn sank into my chest when he stopped and ripped out when he jumped.” He was alone, of course. Luckily, his well-trained horse stopped. The herd ran off. Rube lay still, trying to figure out a plan. After daylight the next morning he managed to get on his horse. Ignoring the awful pain, he got the horse herd back together and resumed their trek to New Mexico. Did he go to a doctor, or hospital? No. “There weren’t any within a three-day ride,” he said, and added with a grin, “Anyway, I healed up and haired over all right.” No matter what, a cowboy sees the sunshine beyond the mountain. At a recent rodeo a bronc stepped in the middle of his would-be rider’s back after bucking him off. Although he couldn’t walk without help, on the way out of the arena he gave the audience a thumbs-up. Later, when asked about his injury, the fallen rider said, “I’m lucky. My liver was lacerated, and that body part can repair itself.” Lucky?! I think my smile would have failed me along about then.
