T

he Southwest Regional Finals made the move this year from Albuquerque, New Mexico across the state to Clovis, New Mexico. It was a positive move and ropers enjoyed a refreshing new venue as the Curry County Special Events Center rolled out the red carpet for the USTRC and its members. The event began with the Open Division and it welcomed a field of world class team ropers to do battle in the arena. Josh Morris from Lazbuddie, Texas and Brandon Gonzales from Bosque, New Mexico came from the third call back position and roped their final steer in 6.70 seconds bringing their total on five steers to 36.63 seconds. That was good enough to land them first place. They received $5,000, trophy leather rope bags and 20 points for the US Open tour. “We really drew some good steers today and

had things go our way,” said Morris. “It was a really good roping.” “Yes it was,” echoed Gonzales “There were some really tough ropers entered and today things went our way.” Second place went to Quincy Kueckelhan and Kaleb Driggers. They came from seventh call back and finished the roping with a time of 37.19 seconds on five. Third place went to Speed Williams and Patrick Smith. Clay Lewis from Clovis, New Mexico and Jed Middleton from Wolfforth, Texas won the Incentive Average. The #15 was next and the young guns team of Lane Ivy and Logan Medlin took the top honors. They were 32.38 seconds on four steers and took home trophy leather rope bags, $2,778, and $8,000 in USTRC Flex Earnings. Second was the father/son team of Rand and Ethan Cory from Hico, Texas. Beverly Robbins from Alabama teamed up with Lane Siggins from New Mexico to finish third place. It was time for the big money of the #15 Shoot-Out. Bode Baize teamed up with Calvin Taylor. They qualified to the short round in the sixth call back position. They finished the roping with a time of 39.21 seconds on five steers. The team earned $5,082, trophy Martin saddles and $6,000 in USTRC Flex Earnings. “We really didn’t do anything fancy, we just caught them all,” said Taylor. “It was a good roping and I am super excited about the win.” Second place was Shane Sena and Roy Montoya both from New Mexico. They received $3,048 and $6,000 in USTRC Flex Earnings. Third place was Reno Eddy and Kaleb Driggers. The second day of the Southwest Regional Finals began in fine form. The first roping of the day was the #13 Preliminary. The team of Aaron Macy from Post, Texas and Randy Sanchez from Jarales, New Mexico finished first place from the tenth call back position. Second place went to the father/son team of Ryder and Colton Lee with a time of 35.41 seconds on four steers. Tanner Batenhorst and Brent Ivy finished in third place. The real excitement came in the #13 ShootOut where the team of Javier Chavez Minguer and Brandon Baca teamed up to win first place in the Average. They took home $10,000 trophy Martin saddles and $6,000 in USTRC Flex Earnings. Second place was Katey Anthony and Lane Siggins and third place was Monroe Timberlake and Monty Wood. The #12 Gold Plus came right down to the

wire. Tyler Riggan from Snyder, Texas teamed up with Taylor Pettigrew from Tatum, New Mexico. They were the high team back and finished the roping with a clean run and a four steer total of 29.24 seconds. That landed them first place in the Average. They received trophy leather rope bags, Resistol hats, Tony Lama boots, Cinch jeans, $9,752, plus $6,000 in USTRC Flex Earnings. Second place went to Tina Godfrey and Cody Wilson and third place was Lance Crist and Joe Hughes. The team of Stacy Kropik and Cavin Jacobs won the Incentive Average and Walt Arnold and Kress Jones were the Century Bonus Champions. Katey Anthony and Ryan Sanders won the Incentive Average of the #12 Preliminary and qualified to the short round in the number one call back position. The third high team back of Kenny Martinez from Portales, New Mexico and Justin Price from Laveta, Colorado roped their final steer in 7.10 seconds and went into the lead of the roping with a time of 33.29 seconds on four steers. When it was all said and done they were the champions of the roping. Martinez and Price took home $4,776, trophy Martin saddles and $8,000 in USTRC Flex Earnings. Second was Walt and Reno Eddy from Gallup New Mexico. Third place went to Larry Hendricks and Billy Ivy. Kurt Kiehne from Hereford, Texas teamed up with Brad Good from Clovis, New Mexico and the two calf ropers qualified to the short round of the #12 Shoot-Out in the number one position. They were 8.03 on their final steer and secured first place in the Average with a time of 32.09 seconds on four steers. The win gave the team trophy Martin saddles, $10,000, and $6,000 in USTRC Flex Earnings. Second place went to Trevor Hedeman from Morgan Mill, Texas and Brent Ivy from Amarillo, Texas. The third place finishers were Walt Eddy and Wesley Thorp. The hometown team of Michael Bell and Ryan Figg teamed up to win the Average of the #11 Preliminary. They finished the roping with a time of 32.27 seconds on four steers. The win paid them $4,660, trophy Martin saddles and $8,000 in USTRC Flex Earnings. Second place went to Nicky Delgado and Chance Gomez and third place was Bill Rasberry and Blake Williamson. The team of Vincente Guerrero and Cavin Jacobs won the Incentive Average. It was all about the girls in the #11 Shoot-

SEPTEMBER 2011

Competitorial I

’m kind of proud to say I may be the first one to drop this tag line, though certainly not the last. I was invited earlier this week to sit in on a special announcement by the USTRC, as they unveiled a new wrinkle in their game that is undoubtedly the biggest thing to hit the sport in the last twenty years… or maybe ever! I have to say it’s been a pretty well-kept secret, as I don’t know of anyone who saw this coming. It was announced at a small gathering of USTRC/ Equibrand insiders in Stephenville, Texas, most of whom I think were as surprised at the announcement as I was. After a couple days of digesting the news and thinking it through, all I can say is, it’s a pretty brilliant and bold move on the part of the USTRC to make this kind of commitment to the sport. Such a decision makes it apparent that the USTRC “gets it.” They understand that they always have and always will be THE DRIVING FORCE of the sport, and as goes the USTRC, so goes an entire industry which the sport is responsible for creating. The brilliant part of the decision is it removes the burr that has been poking at the USTRC for a long time now. As ropers already know, the USTRC already adds a million or more to the payout at the NFTR. However this is not “added money” in the purest sense… or at least by my definition. The money that is currently “added” at the NFTR is actually money that is collected from the payout at all USTRC events during the course of a year. So…while it is technically “added money” at the NFTR, it is more accurate to describe it as “collected money added back.” Obviously using the accurate semantics is

USTRC/Equibrand to Add One Million in Cash to the National Finals of Team Roping

distracting and cumbersome, so the simple “added money” nomenclature has been adopted to suffice. Under the new program, the USTRC/ Equibrand will be actually adding money…that is, REAL added money…to the tune of a million bucks, to the payback at the NFTR. So you might be calculating that since the USTRC already adds back about a million to the NFTR from funds collected from payouts throughout the year, and then adds another million, the NFTR will essentially have two million added… but that’s not the case. It is however, the brilliance of the move. You see, the money that has been collected from USTRC payouts, will no longer be collected. Instead, that 7% or so that has been forwarded to the NFTR Shoot-Out Fund and paid out at the NFTR as added money, will go directly back to the ropers at local events. So, not only will ropers continue to rope for at least a million in added money at the NFTR, the USTRC will be able to restructure their payout to deliver a full two-thirds payout to ropers… something that hasn’t been the case since the Shoot-Out fund at the National Finals was created nearly twenty years ago. Let’s face it, ropers have been chastising the USTRC for its payout structure since the establishment of the organization itself. The USTRC has been in a box because as a true national organization, they were obligated to produce a national finals type event. Such an event has to be an “over-the-top” type of extravaganza, the likes of which can’t be matched. The only way to make that possible was to have an event with an enormous payout,

USTRC Southwest Regional Out. Janesa Garcia from Clayton, New Mexico teamed up with Brandon Baca teamed up to win the Average. They were 34.37 seconds on four steers and took home $10,000, trophy Martin saddles and $6,000 in USTRC Flex Earnings. Second place went to Nicole Sweazea from Mountainair, New Mexico and Reno Eddy from Gallup, New Mexico. Third place was Jeff Davis and Ty Toledo, while fourth went to the team of Manny Carrizal and Robert Orozco. A couple of college kids were the team to beat in the #10 Preliminary. Hadley Howe from Crossroads, New Mexico and Stewy Kinley from Portales, New Mexico were 34.84 seconds on four to win first place in the Average. They took home $5,142, trophy Martin saddles and $8,000 in USTRC Flex Earnings. Second went to the

Incentive champion team of Bradley Walden and Dakota Williams. Third place was the Oklahoma team of Jim Rogers and Colt Beene. Texas and New Mexico teamed up to take the top honors in the #10 Shoot-Out. Rebecca Neuhaus from Huntsville and Rex Allen Hawkins from Santa Teresa finished the roping with a time of 41.68 seconds on four steers. They won $10,000, trophy Martin saddles and $6,000 in USTRC Flex Earnings for their first place finish. Second place was Jerry Trujillo and Grady Pierce and third place went to Bill McDowell and Joe Gonzales. Grattney Wooten from Moriarty, New Mexico and Dan Brinkley from Estancia, New Mexico won the Average of the #9 Preliminary. They were 37.73 seconds on four steers and took home $4,422, trophy Martin saddles and $8,000 in

and the only way to accomplish that, was to have the payout subsidized. Naturally the way to subsidize the payout at the NFTR was to collect a percentage of the payout at regular season events from both the roper’s pot and the producer’s pot (most ropers don’t know that a portion of the producer’s pot also currently goes to the NFTR added money pot). That’s all fine and good in theory, but it left the door open for ropers to question the USTRC payout… and that’s the burr that has been poking at the USTRC… since the beginning. In my opinion, ropers have had a legitimate complaint, especially over the past few years. The truth is, many ropers do not make the annual trek to the NFTR, and if you are one of those, your valid argument is that the USTRC should not be holding money out of the payback at the local roping so they can fund a roping that you’re not even going to attend. It has caused a lot of consternation among ropers, and has been used for years by wanna-be competitors of the USTRC as a stick with which to beat the USTRC over the head and keep the pot of consternation stirred. The problem has been exacerbated by a stumbling economy and skyrocketing fuel prices that have made traveling to the NFTR out of reach for more and more ropers. It put the USTRC in a real box. On one hand the USTRC is obligated to maintain the standard set by the NFTR and its enormous payout, while on the other hand it had to come to terms with a legitimate point being expressed by ropers. It’s a tough problem to solve… unless, of course you deem the cause important enough to invest a million dollars towards solving it.

USTRC Flex Earnings. Second place was Buster Dickey and Travis Beck with a time of 42.25 seconds on four steers. Third place was Lydia Ulibarri and Mike Kelling. The Incentive winners were Chad Smith from Cheyenne, Oklahoma and James Masters from Wheeler, Texas. Ulibarri from Las Vegas, New Mexico and Kelling from Hartley, Texas used their momentum from the Preliminary to carry them forth into the #9 Shoot-Out. They finished the roping with a time of 37.70 seconds and took first place in the Average. They won $10,000, trophy Martin saddles and $6,000 in USTRC Flex Earnings. Second place was Don Pool and Grady Pierce and third went to Jeremy Ferbrache and Rylan Ferbrache both from Woodward, Oklahoma. The final roping of the weekend was the #8 Pick/Draw.

For all the excitement this move will likely generate among ropers, I think there is a bigger, deeper, story underlining all of this. It’s a story that will likely be dismissed or completely unaknowleged. It’s the story about the understanding by Equibrand (who is the parent company of USTRC), to recognize its place in the sport of team roping and be committed to its continuing success. For it to muster all its resources in order to make a commitment of this magnitude tells me they “get it.” Yes, I know they are in this business to make a profit (and as a proud capitalist, I have no problem with that), but a commitment of this magnitude, coughing up a million dollars to shore up the efforts of the USTRC, tells me they are in this business for the right reasons. In thinking about this, I was reminded of an editorial written by Denny Gentry in SuperLooper Magazine years ago when he was announcing the sale of the USTRC to Equibrand. In all his wisdom, he pointed out that one of the reasons he decided to sell was because the USTRC was too big and too important a part of an entire industry to be operated by one man. He further explained that he was very careful in choosing who would take over the reins, as he had to feel confident that the new owners had both the commitment and resources to move the sport forward regardless of the circumstances. ...It seems to me he made a wise choice.

his year’s Wild Thing Bull Riding in Gallup, New Mexico ‘Rocked The House.’ In fact, Saturday night’s performance filled Red Rock State Park to capacity – and you thought bull riding in the Southwest was dead! This year’s annual event called for the biggest crowd ever and they were awarded with not only a fantastic bull riding with great performances by both man and beast, but a fantastic fireworks display and entertainment for the whole family. Although Friday, July 8 offered up a few showers to the dry New Mexico desert during the performance, the night was full of action inside the arena. However, the next evening, July 9, the excitement shook the famed red rocks around the arena as the spectators roared with each nod of every cowboys head as they left the bucking chutes on some of the rankest bulls known to the sport.

Washburn and Martin Baca brought the best of their bucking bulls and it showed as the high marked rides who managed to stay aboard for the full eight seconds. Only seven contestants covered their bulls including the winner of this year’s event, Cody Morgan. He walked away with $6,400 in cold, hard cash in his pockets as the event paid out more than $24,000 to all of the winners. According to Wild Thing producer, Larry Peterson, this event continues to get bigger and better with each year thanks to the awesome Wild Thing event sponsors and the fantastic fans that show up each year to pack the stands and enjoy the show. Always something new, this year, thanks to Toshiba and Castle Furniture, two free Flat Screen TV’s were given away. One was awarded at Friday’s performance and one at Saturday’s performance. Two lucky spectators went home with these new TV’s. In addition, the event was packed with plenty of other sponsors who came to enjoy

This event was surely a crowd pleaser and everyone got into the idea of being part of movie history. A crew was on hand filming for a new movie that will be part of this year’s Sundance Movie Festival. Spectators and bull riders alike showed their best style as the cameras rolled and the action shook Western New Mexico. No doubt this year’s edition will go into the books as one of the best!

The Gripp! Story Courtesy of Stephanie Wolf Photos Courtesy of Lone Wolf Photography

“N

ever doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead wrote those words many moons ago, but they are still true now- if not more so. Seventeen years ago several people channeled their determination and began producing an annual roping in honor of their friend and mentor, Spicer Gripp. The proceeds from the roping are donated in the form of scholarship money to West Texas A&M University in nearby Canyon, Texas. Seventy-two scholarships have been provided to young men and women since 1994. This year the Spicer Gripp Foundation contributed another $25,000 to the university. The Spicer Gripp Memorial Youth Foundation steps up to the plate and “continues to provide when the state legislature does not.” Spicer Gripp’s legacy lives on through the efforts of his dedicated friends and the young people who receive the funds to further their education. Three of those friends were recognized at the Sponsor’s Reception and Dinner Thursday evening prior to the start of the roping. These people go above and beyond the typical donation of time and effort during the organization and promotion of the Spicer Gripp Memorial Roping. None of them do so seeking an award. The “Top Hand” award went to Delbert Davis. A man of few words, Delbert merely said, “We done all this for my buddy.” The Hereford Chamber of Commerce presented Bob Schulte with the “Bull Chip” award. Finally, the first annual Give your Soule award was presented to Vicki Wilson. Choked with emotion, Vicki humbly stated, “Spicer was the love of my life.” Not a lot of people, but they are changing the world one scholarship at a time. Hopefully, those scholarship recipients will invest their own hearts and minds in their own communities with the same passion as those dedicated individuals involved in the Spicer Gripp Memorial Roping. Friday morning started bright and early with the Senior Steer Roping. Someone somewhere once told me that you won’t grow old if you never stop saddling your own horse. I am thinking these guys are still saddling their own horses. This year there were twenty-seven contestants privileged enough to have the life experience allowing them to compete in the Senior Steer Roping.

Four places were paid in each of the three rounds and again in the short go. The short go was the very last event held on Sunday afternoon. Something comes to mind about saving the best for last. When the dust settled, first in the average and a check for $1,165 went to Mike Thompson for his total time of 66.88 seconds. C.A. Lauer, who also competed in the Open Steer Roping, was second in the average. C.A. tied four steers in 72.52 seconds and put a check for $874 in his pocket. Scott Welch placed third in the average. A check in the amount of $582 was presented to Scott for tying his four steers in 74.16 seconds. Finally, with a total time of 74.25 seconds, Cecil Wilson earned fourth in the average and $291. The Ladies Open Team Roping event was added to the Memorial Roping line up in 2009. Since then it has tripled in size and attracts several of the top female ropers in the country. This year’s ladies roping paid out a record $22,750. Riding the same horse that Trevor Brazile rode at the 2010 National Finals Rodeo, Lari Dee Guy took first in the average with Annette Hinkle. The two split $4,778 for first in the average, $910 for fast time in the short go, and $456 for third in the second round. Annette had a phenomenal day. In addition to the cash collected while roping with Lari Dee, she split $2,388 for third in the average with Jackie Hobbs. Jackie and Annette also split $342 for third in the first round and $910 for first in the second round. Jackie Hobbs was another multi team winner. Besides Annette, Jackie paired up with Barrie Smith. Jackie and Barrie split $1,562 for fifth in the average, $342 for fourth in the first round, and $682 for second in the second round. Although the team of Crickett Lemon and Patti Scott did not snag any of the round money, their consistent times earned them second in the average and a check for $3,980 which they split. Amber Carter and Shay Dee Langston split $2,388 for third in the average as well as $228 for fourth in the short go. There is now a waiting list of contestants for the Open Calf Roping, Steer Roping, and Team Roping at the Spicer Gripp Memorial Roping. It is just that good. The roster of contestants this year was a who’s who of the roping world. The BJM Invitational Steer Roping had 60 contestants, half of which are among the PRCA’s top 50 in the standings including thirteen of the top fifteen. The show started at 7 a.m. Those smart enough to get there that early beat the heat and got a great show.

Jerome Schneeberger was the average winner of the open calf roping that earned him $11,000

Josh Morris and Jody Pinkert had a 6 head average time of 47.89 seconds to win them the average worth $30,150 in cash.

J.P. Wickitt was awarded the Average title in the open steer roping with a four head total of 54.23 seconds.

Reigning world champion, Trevor Brazile was second to last to rope in the first round. Until then the lead had changed hands a couple of times. As Trevor backed into the box it seemed as if he was saying “remember me – I am The World Champion.” Then he proceeded to show the crowd why he was The World Champion by tying his first steer in 10.10 seconds and collecting the first of many checks for the weekend worth $4,364. Each round of the Open Steer Roping paid $4,364 for first, $3,273 for second, $2,182 for third, and $1,091 for fourth. J.P. Wickett’s time of 12.15 seconds was enough to win second in the first round of the Open Steer Roping. JoJo Lemond was third in the first round with a time of 12.38, and J Paul Williams was fourth. His time was 12.50 seconds. Scott Snedecor and Cody Garnett split first and second in the second round of the open steer roping. They both tied a steer in 12.11 seconds. Rocky Patterson roped and tied his second round steer in 12.34 seconds earning him the third place check. Chance Kelton was a close fourth with a time of 12.49 seconds. Although Rocky placed a very respectable third in the second round, he just didn’t feel that it was the best he had to offer. So with one check in his pocket, Rocky came back in the third round and tied his steer in 10.10 seconds, equal to Trevor’s smoking first round run. The flag dropped at 11.11 seconds for JP Wickitt placing him second in the round. Chance Kelton moved up a notch in round three. His time of 12.88 was good enough for a solid third in the round. JD Yates completed the placings with a time of 13.66 seconds. The top twelve came back on Sunday for the short go where

ropers had the opportunity to not only earn average checks but one of four checks for fast time in the short round. Shandon Stalls waited until the very last round to step into the winner’s circle. Shandon earned $2,182 for his short round time of 11.61 seconds and another $4,363 for tying four steers in 57.53 seconds and placing third in the average. Cody Lee was another roper that waited until the short round to collect a check. His time of 12.97 seconds earned Cody Lee second in the short round and $1,637. Cody Garnett collected two more checks after the short go as well. The first $1,091 was for his time of 13.28 seconds and third in the round. The second was a check in the amount of $2,181 for fourth in the average and a cumulative time of 58.49 seconds. Chance Kelton did not place in the short go, but he was satisfied with his average check in the amount of $6,544 for second in the average. Chance tied four steers in 56.59 seconds. J.P. Wickitt didn’t safety up much in the short go. He was awarded $546 for his very decent time of 13.93 seconds, but his total time of 54.23 seconds on four head put the big smile on Wickett’s face and the $8,726 check in his pocket. Moss Grain & Cattle co sponsored the calf roping with Quality Distillers Grain. Forty-one calf ropers vied for a piece of the $45,750 payout this year, and spectators were given the finest show next to the National Finals. As in the steer roping, about half of the calf ropers were among the PRCA’s the top 50. Again four places were paid in each of the three rounds as well as the short go. Jerome Schneeberger was the big winner of the day. Jerome earned four

checks in the calf roping totaling over $11,000. Jerome tied his first calf in 10.20 seconds for second in the round only .03 seconds behind Adam Gray. That earned Jerome his first check for $2,495. Schneeberger was left out of the second round placings, but his time of 9.94 seconds earned him fourth in the third round and another $832. Jerome again came in second to Adam’s first in the short round with at time of 10.54 seconds, but Schneeberger overcame Gray in the average, winning first with a total time of 42.33 seconds. First in the average paid Schneeberger $6,656 and second in the short round paid him $1,248. Adam Gray won both the first round with a time of 10.17 seconds and the short round with a time of 10.39 seconds. His consistency also earned him second in the average. Adam’s total time on four calves was 43.8 seconds. He earned $3,327 for first in the first round, $1,663 for first in the short round and $4,990 for second in the average. That is almost $10,000 for less than one minute of work. Charley Russell was a dark horse in the calf roping. He tied all his calves but didn’t earn a check until the short round. His 10.83 second run in the short round was good enough for third in the round and third in the average. Charley’s total time on four calves was 45.44 seconds. Russell earned $832 for third in the round and $3,327 for third in the average. Stetson Vest was the final calf roper earning a check in the average. Stetson’s total time of 46.84 seconds earned him an average check in the amount of $1,664. Stetson also placed fourth in the first round and received a check for $832 for that time of 10.35 seconds. Prior to taking the stage Saturday night with his band, Jake Hooker participated in the Pro-Am Team Roping along with seventy-four other amateur headers and heelers. Although the winning Pros collect a small amount of money for their efforts, this roping is primarily held to raise scholarship money for West Texas A&M and the amateurs come out in force for that. Well that and the beautiful saddles, buckles, watches, rope bags, hats and numerous other trinkets provided by corporate sponsors. There are so many winners in this roping that I will only mention the top two. Wayne Shaw has been a long time supporter of the Spicer Gripp Memorial Roping and he finally earned the coveted saddle for winning first in the average heading for Caleb Twisselman. The top amateur heeler was Scott Venable. Scott’s incredible yellow horse put him in just the right spot to catch two feet for pro header Charley Crawford in

just about every round allowing him to win the other fabulous saddle. The house was packed again Sunday morning. First on the agenda was open team roping. The total payout in the open team roping was huge and fifty-five teams each wanted a piece of it. After six grueling rounds somewhat local boys Josh Morris and Jody Pinkert had a cumulative time of 47.89 seconds. Josh and Jody ended up first in the average, splitting $30,150. It was a hard day’s work especially with Trevor Brazile and Patrick Smith nipping at your heels. Trevor and Patrick’s total time on six head was 49.07 seconds and they split $25,130 for second in the average. Right behind them was the team of Kevin Stewart and Travis Woodard. Kevin and Travis roped well all day and ended up with a time of 49.52 seconds on six steers. They were each awarded a check in the amount of $10,050 for third in the average. Turtle Powell needed to pick up a little cash before hustling home to Stephenville, Texas. If you haven’t heard Turtle and his wife, Molly, had their first baby just a day or so after the Spicer Gripp. Turtle’s partner was Jhett Johnson. They finished fourth in the average with a total time of 51.66 seconds and each took home $7,535. $10,050 was split by Tyler Magnus and Shawn Brown for fifth in the average and their total time of 52.08 seconds. A lot of money was paid out in the average, but not all of it. Fast time over all went to Brandon Beers and Jim Ross Cooper for their 5.64 second run in the short round. Brandon and Jim Ross pocketed not only $750 each for fast time over all, but another $750 each for fast time in the short round. Two places were also paid in the first two rounds. Erich Rodgers and Kory Koontz stopped the clock in 6.29 seconds on their first steer and split $3,000. Blake Hughes and Steve Orth claimed the $1,500 paid for second in the first round with a time of 7.16 seconds. In the second round it was Clay Tryan and Travis Graves who were quick enough to grab the $3,000 in that round. Clay and Travis’ time was 5.93 seconds. Kaleb Driggers and Brad Culpepper each earned $750 for their work of 6.51 seconds in the second round. Add it all up and there was $112,500 paid out in the Open Team Roping this year at the Gripp. No one ever forgets a great horse. Many a man has been remembered by the caliber of horse he rode. The American Quarter Horse Association once again recognized the top horses ridden in the open steer roping, calf roping, and the best heading and heel horses of the open team roping.

Mike Thompson earned first in the average of the Senior Steer Roping with a four head total of 66.88 seconds

Shay Goad’s grey gelding was selected as the top steer roping horse. Jerome Schneeberger’s horse was chosen as the best of the best in this year’s Open Calf Roping. In the Open Team Roping, Patrick Smith once again rode the top heel horse and Kevin Stewart’s dark horse was selected as top head horse. All of these men were only as good as the horse they rode in on. Finally, the best thing about the Spicer Gripp Memorial Roping this year was the rain. It rained every evening! Not enough to

disrupt the roping itself or any of the activities surrounding it, but beneficial rains came down none the less. In my humble opinion it just goes to show that you must give in order to receive. Participants, volunteers, corporations, spectators, family and friends gave and then they received, but not just rain. The investment in the education of our young people will continue to pay dividends in the decades ahead. An education is something that can never be taken away.

Sharlot Hall

Story and Photos Compliments of Jim Olson

S

he was the first lady to hold public office in the Arizona Territory. She was way ahead of her time with regard to being an independent woman. She was the first real historian preserving the history of early frontier days from the Territory; something we now take for granted as always having been there. She was a poet, writer, rancher, friend to many of the day’s leading citizens and humanitarian as well. Her name was Sharlot Hall. Sharlot came to the Arizona Territory as a young girl in a covered wagon during 1882 when she was eleven. Arizona remained home until her death in 1943. In between those years is the storied life of an amazing lady. By default, Sharlot was a rancher. Her family raised horses and other livestock, grew vegetables, apples and pears, and her father even tried his hand at gold mining

in nearby creeks. Eventually the family settled near what is now Dewey, Arizona on a place they named Orchard Ranch. Sharlot spent close to forty years at Orchard Ranch, burying both parents there in the process. The hardships of pioneer ranch life were a common theme in her later writings. In 1906, there was a measure before congress to bring both the Arizona and New Mexico Territories into the union as one state, the state of New Mexico. Sharlot was one of many activists who opposed the measure. She toured the territory, gathering signatures for a petition against it. During this time, Sharlot was inspired to write her epic poem, “Arizona.” The poem was widely accepted as a fine work of art and a copy of it was distributed to every member of congress back in Washington, DC. It has been speculated that the bill was defeated, in part, because of Sharlot’s activities and her poem. In 1909, Sharlot became the first lady to hold a paid public office, that of official Arizona historian. It ruffled the feathers of many of the

day’s politicians, as it was unheard of for a lady to hold such a post. Women didn’t even have the right to vote in Arizona at the time and many of her male counterparts searched in vain for a loophole that would legally eject Sharlot from her post.

“Sharlot was particularly gifted to tell the woman’s side of pioneer life. Her warm sympathies, her gift of expression and having lived most of her life under pioneer conditions particularly qualified her.” Alice Hewins Luckily, then territorial governor, Richard Sloan, was an ally of Sharlot’s and did not give under political pressure from his constituents. It wasn’t until George Hunt became the first governor of the newly formed State of Arizona in February 1912 that Sharlot left her post. Hunt was apparently not a fan of women in office. Sharlot remained active in Arizona politics however, and in 1925, when Calvin Coolidge was elected president of the United States, Sharlot was commissioned to deliver Arizona’s three electoral votes to Washington on behalf of the state. Being an independent woman was a trademark of Sharlot. She didn’t receive a lot of schooling as a young lady, only about four years of formal education,

but she quickly learned that young ladies of the day were mostly groomed on how to be a good wife. Sharlot dreamed of being a writer instead. According to Margaret Maxwell, Sharlot’s biographer, she sold her first article as a sixteen-year-old while attending Prescott high school, for two dollars. Sharlot had over five hundred published works and ten books published throughout her life. Two of her most famous books are Cactus and Pine and Poems of a Ranch Woman. She was a prolific writer. As a teenage girl, Sharlot told her mother, while strolling the streets of Prescott, “One day I shall live in that fine mansion.” She was referring to the old Governor’s mansion on Gurley Street, home of the first territorial governor, built in 1864. Sharlot either had extra sensory perception or one heck of a positive, goal orientated attitude, because in 1927, she did move into that very mansion. She lived there the rest of her life and from that day on, she dedicated herself to preserving the history of the territory in the form of a museum; a museum, which to this day bears her name. Sharlot was completely enthralled with history. Sharlot had spent most of her life collecting artifacts, studying and preserving history. Even during her younger life, she knew there was a need, as the old pioneers and their ways were giving way to modern society. President Abraham Lincoln founded the territory in 1863, but by 1900, as early settlers died off, their possessions were being lost, along with their stories. To save what she could, She began collecting Native American and pioneer material. Today the Sharlot Hall Museum covers 3.5 acres in downtown Prescott, Arizona and is one of the West’s most complete collections of old West history. One thing impressive to me about Sharlot was her independence. Being raised in a time when women were largely thought of as incomplete without a husband, an era when basically the only “career women” were cooks, laundresses, and schoolteachers—and then only if they were single—Sharlot was a renegade. Sharlot never married, and once wrote this about the subject, “I am a woman a full ten years beyond thirty. I am not married. I don’t expect to be married. I don’t want to


ll-Around be married. I am happier than any married woman I have ever known. My ‘Emotional Life’ is fuller in every direction than that of any wife of my acquaintance. Unless an unmarried woman is a hopeless lump of stupidity, she has a hundred times wider opportunity for an emotional life, full to overflowing, than it is possible for an ordinary married woman to have.” Needless to say, many of Sharlot’s acquaintances were men. She lived in, thrived in and conducted business in a man’s world. She was acquainted with most of the leading citizens of her day, including many historical figures whose names sprinkle history books. In response to a male friend’s telegraph, enquiring about her welfare, being alone, Sharlot sent the following reply telegram: “But I do enjoy everything - just the sunshine on the sand is beautiful enough to keep one giving thanks for eyes to see with. And all day long I’m glad, so glad, so glad that God let me be an out-door woman and love the big things. I couldn’t be a tame house cat woman and spend big sunny, glorious days giving card parties and planning dresses — though I love pretty clothes and good dinners and friends - and would love a home where only the true, kind, worth-while things had place. I’m not unwomanly - don’t you dare to think so - but God meant woman to joy in his great, clean, beautiful world and I thank Him that He lets me see some of it not through a windowpane. Your telegram came yesterday - on from A Phoenix. Every one of my happiest thoughts, all the days through, ends in a prayer for you - and gratitude beyond words that I have you to call friend - dear,

Summer always seems to fly by and before we know it, our kids will be back to school. One of the reasons it seems to fly by is the number of ropings held during the summer that USTRC members flock to in preparation for the Regional and Cinch USTRC National Finals of Team Roping. In the month’s of June and July alone, USTRC processed more than 100 sanctioned and affiliate events from across the country attended by thousands of team ropers. While a few events reported less than normal team counts, due mainly to EHV-1 in early June, weather and schedule conflicts, most have boasted of an increase in teams and participants. Certainly, one of the reasons for the uptick in numbers has been the lure of the USTRC Regional Finals which will offer more than $2 million in cash and prizes through September, to be followed by the Cinch USTRC National Finals of Team Roping in October, offering more than $4.5 million in cash and prizes.

West Nile Virus a Threat to Equine Health— Vaccination is Key to Prevention

ith confirmed cases of West Nile virus (WNV) already recorded in mosquitoes, birds and humans in 28 states from coast to coast this year, and the first equine cases reported in Nevada and California, horse owners should be proactive in managing their horses’ health care. The most effective way to help protect against WNV and other life-threatening diseases is to vaccinate. Merial’s RECOMBITEK®rWNV-EWT vaccine is fast-acting, helping provide immunity against WNV in just 26 days after the initial dose with full protection provided 14 days after the primary two-dose series. The vaccine also helps protect against Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE), Western Equine Encephalitis (WEE) and tetanus and is safe for horses as young as four months of age. “Some horse owners have gotten complacent because they believe that West Nile virus is no longer a threat,” says April Knudson, DVM, equine specialist for Merial’s Large Animal Veterinary Services. “We know 125 equine cases were reported last year, and based on confirmed reports this year, there are already a significant number of WNV cases in mosquito and bird populations. “Horse owners who have not yet vaccinated for WNV should not wait until the disease is seen in horses. They need to vaccinate now and should ask their veterinarians about choosing a vaccine such as RECOMBITEK, which provides rapid onset of immunity, since the season has already started.” Although it’s best to vaccinate horses before disease threats emerge, it isn’t too late for horses that are behind on their vaccinations. “To help ensure the health of their horses, owners should consult with their veterinarians about how to safely and effectively get their horse back on a preventive care program,” says Dr. Knudson. Another prevention tool now available to horse owners is Merial’s “Outbreak Alert” program, used to notify horse owners about reports of equine disease throughout the country and build a greater awareness of disease and the importance of prevention. Along with confirmed reports of WNV, the program also monitors rabies, equine influenza, Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE), Western Equine Encephalitis (WEE), Potomac horse fever (PHF) and Equine herpesvirus (EHV). Horse owners and veterinarians can sign up to receive free alerts via the program’s website, www.outbreak-alert.com. Then, once a disease report is confirmed, those who live within a 250-mile radius will receive a text or e-mail message to alert them of the potential threat in their area. Owners who travel with their horses and want to stay abreast of disease threats in other parts of the country can enter multiple ZIP codes. To sign up, go to www.outbreak-alert.com and click on the “Register” button in the top right corner. “Owners want the best for their horses,” says Dr. Knudson. “Veterinarians are the best source for quality vaccines and vaccine information. Horse owners that have yet to vaccinate or are behind in their vaccination schedule should consult with their veterinarians as soon as possible to evaluate potential disease threats, assess the level of disease risk and discuss potential travel plans. Communicating about these issues will help a horse owner and veterinarian develop a vaccination program that addresses the specific needs of a horse.” To sign up for the free Outbreak Alert program or for more information about equine diseases, visit www.outbreak-alert.com.

As the Las Vegas lights seem to be getting near for many who have claimed a spot at this year’s event, or those who are anteing up the entry fee for a shot at the big money this event, there are a few loose ends Word Series organizers are tying up.

All the ropings are looking well, and of course it looks like the stall barn is already completely full. In the next few weeks, we will decide where and how many replacement stalls we will erect. For the time being the blogs concerning how we will address the winning rounds have generated a ton of phone calls. We hope the following information will clear up how the short rounds will be handled. If this confuses you, feel free to contact Denny for clarification.

LONG SADDLERY

Changes in the Finale Format As we announced last fall, we are presenting a few changes to our Finale format. These changes will create additional opportunities for contestants and we believe a payoff enhancement. These changes are designed to address problems at the bottom end of the payoff and will have very little influence on the payoff at the top of the four-steer average or for that matter consolation. The payoff examples are based on a One Million Dollar payoff, keeping in mind that we have been exceeding that number. First, lets go through the change that applies to the four steer average.

Four Steer Average Short Round

A

Over the past five years every team who roped three steers advanced to the short round. Over the last two years with our barrier set up and the cattle sort, the catch ratios have been off the meter. As an example, last year in the #13 we had 109 teams advance to the short round with only one fast time check in the short round. This year we will handle advancement a little different. The top 10 teams in each of the four rotations will advance to the short round. In addition to those forty teams, the fastest two teams who miss the cut will also advance. In the past we have paid 30 checks in the average with 21 through 30 paying $6000 per team. We will be adding twelve more positions for a total of forty-two paid positions. The last 12 will receive ground money checks of $4000 each. Every team who makes the short round will be guaranteed a check. The short round will determine which check each team receives. This change will increase the average payoffs by $51,000, and take that four steer average to roughly $820,000.

Three Steer Consolation Will Change To Four Steer Consolation The three-steer consolation will now change to the four-steer consolation. Here is how it will work. At the end of every rotation you and your partner will progress based on one of three scenarios. 1) You roped well enough to be one of the 42 teams who advance to the four steer short round, 2) You and your partner roped all three steers but missed the cut, 3) You have two steers down and will advance to the Consolation. The team that missed two or more steers is the only team that is NOT still in the roping at this point. Item #1 is pretty self explanatory, but item #2 and #3 will combine and rope in the consolation. How is that fair? How can that happen? In the consolation all the teams who roped three steers but missed the cut in the foursteer average will have the slowest time of their three steers eliminated and will start the consolation with their two best times. Joining these teams in the consolation short round will be all the teams who missed just one steer. These teams from both groups will start the consolation round with two times, they will ALL rope a third steer, potentially progressing to a fourth short round steer. All teams that catch three in the consolation will progress to the short round. This one extra steer in the consolation is guaranteed to shake things up a bunch. This truly will become a second roping within the roping. In the short round of the four-steer consolation we will pay 20 average positions. If our team count holds the same as last year, the consolation should pay an estimated $150,000.

Go-Rounds There will be one $6,000/tm fast time check paid in each rotation. Only teams who have missed two steers are eligible for this check. There will be one $6,000/tm fast time paid in the short round of the Consolation short round. The total round payoff is $30,000.

A New Rope from Fast Back: Redline

Gist Gives Back through NHSRA Rookie Program

F

ast Back Ropes is excited to announce an addition to their arsenal of premiere ropes. The new Redline will be available for purchase in stores October 1, 2011. Fast Back has enjoyed an overwhelming response to their last rope released in 2010, the Natural. The Natural was built with a slightly deader feel than other Fast Back ropes, and an accented tip feel. All feedback indicates that ropers love the Natural. There are some who crave a lighter, snappier version of this best seller, so master ropemaker, Al Benson, started development on a new rope based on these requests. After months of testing, the Redline was born.

The Redline is a nylon-poly blend that is red in color. The Redline is slightly smaller and lighter than the Natural with some of the same desirable characteristics that make the Natural so popular. “We anticipate the Redline will appeal to both headers and heelers,” explains Al Benson. “This rope is made with a unique poly fiber developed specifically for the Redline.” The Redline will be available in stores October 1, 2011.

ist Silversmiths awarded Championship buckles and $500 scholarships to the All Around Rookie Cowboy and Cowgirl at both the National Junior High Finals Rodeo in Gallup, New Mexico July 2nd and the National High School Rodeo Finals in Gillette, Wyoming on July 23rd. Congratulations to the 2011 recipients: Blaine Garley of New Mexico and Bridget Merrigan of Missouri who captured the prestigious Junior High titles while the High School honors went to LeighAnn Scribner of New Mexico and, coming all the way from Queensland,Australia, Clay Gordon. As a proud supporter of the Rookie program for junior high and high school rodeo, Gist sponsors over 186 buckles annually to recognize the top Rookie Cowboy and Cowgirl in each state, Canadian province and Australia. In addition, Gist presents $2000 in scholarships annually to the All Around Rookies at the National Finals. “We feel strongly that these rookie students should be encouraged through prizes and scholarship opportunity to compete in high school rodeo,” says Jennifer Folsom, V.P. of Marketing and Business Development. “Growing the program through the success and passion of the new Rookie students is the foundation for maintaining a strong, competitive environment in youth rodeo.” As part of their corporate partnership with NHSRA which supports the national award buckle program, Gist also presented an additional $8400 scholarship check to the National High School Rodeo Foundation. In cooperation with the Foundation matching funds program, this money was able to generate an additional sixteen $500 scholarships presented during the 2011 Finals. “Gist is very honored to support the educational and arena National High School Rodeo Association.” For IN HOUSE PROOFgoals of the CRX’D more information, visit www.gistsilversmiths.com

about raising lots of money for the American Heart Association. We cannot thank everyone enough for all of the donations, time, and hard work that was put into last year! Our contributions exceeded what we expected for our first year and are sure this year will be even better. Rope for the Heart is a not-for-profit organization started in memory of Herbie Honne, and all who have passed because of heart complications. It is a wonderful event for friends and family to come together and enjoy the weekend while raising money to fight the number one killer of our families. In the United States, 12 million people suffer from coronary heart disease. Heart attacks happen to 7 million people. 35% of people with high blood pressure are not aware of it. Surprisingly, every 29 seconds, a person suffers from some type of coronary occurrence. 50% of heart attack victims wait for two hours before requesting help. The result, a quarter of million people die annually before they reach a hospital. The website will be updated shortly (www.ropefortheheart.intuitwebsites.com.) We invite you to send names of family members or friends you have lost to conditions of the heart to wbreno4@juno.com . We will post their name on our In Memory page. WE NEED YOUR HELP! If anyone is interested in helping with the following please contact us at the above email. – Someone to manage the website by updating changes and adding names to the In Memory page. – Someone interested in organizing a raffle to help raise money. Last year we raffled a saddle. – Someone who can send out dinner and dance tickets as they are purchased & keep a running # for the caterer. – Individuals who would like to collect or donate silent auction items. – Anyone interested in being a sponsor to increase our donation to the American Heart Association. Thank you all for your time and help! We are really excited to see the growth this year. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact us anytime. — See you all soon, Mando Honne & Family, Wesley Reno & Family

Walking away with the All-Around awards were Garrett Smith from Rexburg, Idaho who claimed the All-Around Cowboy and McKenna Wagner who hails from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma who claimed the All-Around Cowgirl title. This year, the great state of Texas claimed the Team Standings championship while the Boys Team Standings went home with Utah and the Girls Team Standings was claimed by Texas. Future stars and young rodeo talent to watch in the near future included Clay Gordon who came from Gatton, Queensland, Austrailia to win the Rookie All-Around Cowboy title and LeighAnn Scribner from Edgewood, New Mexico who claimed the All-Around Rookie Cowgirl title.

Days following, contestants at the Durango rodeo were given black armbands to wear in his honor and had a chance to witness a great tribute to his memory. Thanks to photographer, Henry Nakia, who not only took a few shots of the ceremony, but also sent in a few of his favorite shots of Cox out of his library of rodeo photos. In tribute, a saddle bronc horse equipped with Kevin Cox’s saddle, chaps, hat and boots was bucked out each performance of this years Durango Fiesta Days Celebration.

eptember is here and I have been sort of looking forward to this month all year long. Why? Well it is the ten-year anniversary of the month our country was turned upside-down. The events that happened ten years ago on September 11 have no doubt been etched into every heart of every American. I am sure every one of us can remember where we were and what we were doing that morning when we found out our country was terrorized. I, as I am sure most of you, live a long way from where it all took place but as Americans we were all stung by the devastating impact of that day. Not only do I remember that entire day and the thoughts that ran through my mind, I remember the days following and the uniting of Americans. Thousands lined up to give blood, thousands gathered all across the country and headed to the devastated zones in New York and Washington to do what they could to help. For days, months and even years after, we found our passion for America as we lifted up those who lost their lives, those who paid the ultimate price saving others, those who became heroes. Today, our country is in a mess. Bad economy, high fuel prices, no trust in government leaders, and much more all add together for an overall feeling of an all-time lull in American history. Many don’t seem nearly as proud to be an

American as they did those ten years ago when we all gathered side by side to support of our country. We all have our own thoughts and feelings about what could help solve our country’s current problems, and in many areas it is more than one thing that will do the trick. But, who knows if we will ever get everything back on track the way it was. This month I encourage everyone to stand side by side once again. Look at our country through the eyes we looked through ten years ago. Be proud to be an American and look for the bright side of things. Look ahead and see what as individuals we can do to help our country. Heading back to my 4-H years, the pledge I learned still holds true today, “I pledge my Head to clearer thinking, my Heart to greater loyalty, my Hands to larger service and my Health to better living, for my club, my community, my country, and my world.” I think we can unite and stand together once again without something as terrible as the day of September 11, 2001 to make it happen. And, to all of those who lost their lives on that day, you are not forgotten and may you all rest in peace. Until next time – “Dirt – Keep it under your feet” Ryan Davis

Tryan, Graves Rope Lovington Championship by Ted Harbin Clay Tryan and Travis Graves have had a great season, and it got a little bit better on the night of August 13 during the final performance of the Lea County Fair and Rodeo. The team roping tandem finished in 10.4 seconds on two runs to win the aggregate title in Lovington. The $3,440 they each earned will go a long way in helping them in the race for the 2011 world championships – Tryan is No. 2 on the heading money list; Graves is third in heeling. More importantly, the money counts for the Wrangler Million Dollar Tour standings. Tryan and Graves stopped the clock in 4.8 seconds in the final night performance to finish fifth in the second go-round. That was worth $832. Combined with their afternoon run of 5.6, they made the best of a good deal in Lovington – the New Mexico rodeo was one of three Silver level stops this weekend on the Wrangler

Million Dollar Tour presented by Justin Boots, joining Hermiston, Ore., and Sikeston, Mo. Money earned in the Tour’s 24 rodeos helps contestants earn a spot in the Justin Boots Playoffs in Puyallup, Wash., and the Justin Boots Championships in Omaha, Neb. – both of those events take place next month. The other champions in this $207,343 rodeo in Jake McClure Arena were bareback riders Will Lowe and Brian Bain (88 points each), steer wrestler Dean Gorsuch (8.2 seconds on two head), saddle bronc rider Cody Angland (85 points), tiedown roper Sterling Smith (18.0 seconds on two head), steer roper Trevor Brazile (32.4 seconds on three head), bull rider Chandler Bownds (87 points) and barrel racer Sydni Blanchard (16.99 seconds).

History Seven-time World Champion Team Roping Header Jakes Barnes had a huge weekend in making it to his own milestone. Paired with two-time World Champion Heeler Walt Woodard, Barnes

earned checks totaling $19,754 to become the 17th man in ProRodeo history to surpass $2 million in career earnings. “As a little kid growing up and having a dream of even making the (Wrangler) National Finals (Rodeo), to make a career of it and hit that milestone is amazing to me,” Barnes said. “To be in that club is just a thrill. To have made $2 million roping – wow! It just goes to show you that when you have a passion for something and put your mind to something, anything’s possible. I feel like the luckiest guy in the world. To be my own boss, travel around the United States and get to meet the people I have is like a fairytale.” Barnes and Woodard won the threehead average at Cheyenne Frontier Days ($15,095) and also the title in Rock Springs, Wyoming ($1,274) while tying for second place in Deadwood ($3,385). Barnes entered the week needing just $4,007 to reach the $2 million mark and managed more than enough in Deadwood and Rock Springs alone. Cheyenne was just the icing on the cake, the gravy on the biscuit. The earnings there allowed Barnes and

Woodard – both 17th in the world standings a week ago – to climb all the way to eighth place. Barnes has earnings of $54,373 and Woodard $52,831. Barnes is fifth among contestants who have spent their career almost exclusively as team ropers, trailing Rich Skelton, Allen Bach, Clay O’Brien Cooper and Speed Williams – a bit more than $8,000 behind eight-time World Champion Header Williams in 16th place on the career list.

Johnson Is Back! It would be hard to tell which spouse was the happier in the Johnson rig that rolled through Colorado over the weekend. Sure, wife Sherrylynn Johnson won the barrel racing titles at the Eagle County Fair & Rodeo in Eagle and the San Luis Valley Ski-Hi Stampede in Monte Vista. That was a good thing. But husband Mike Johnson, a 23-time Wrangler NFR qualifier, won his first check since coming back from what was supposed to be season-ending surgery on both knees at Eagle, and then won the tie-down roping at Steamboat Springs. He was timed in 10.9 seconds both places.

The San Juan County Fair is always a good time and it sure was nice to have Memorial Coliseum to get out of the sun. The barrel racing was hot with Delaney Gonzales running the fastest time of the day in the youth race. Another youth, Meygan McMillian won the open showing just how tough our youth racers are! We had a total of 122 runners and want to thank everyone who volunteer including Josh, Mark, Leanne, Cookie, Christine and Robin. It sure makes the races go smoothly with great help! We hope everyone decks out in red, white and blue for our September Saddle race on Sept 10th and 11th. In Ocotober Christine Lewis is working on a race to benefit breast cancer research.

WPRA News and Notes World Finals Returns to Lincoln by Ann Bleiker Following a successful World Finals in 2010, the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association is eager for their return to the Lancaster Event Center in Lincoln, Neb., Oct. 13-16 for the 2011 WPRA World Finals presented by the Lincoln Convention and Visitors Bureau. The changes that were made for the 2010 edition proved very beneficial for the WPRA and its members and plans for this year look very similar as a result. The Lancaster Event Center’s central location and phenomenal facility, including great ground for barrel racing, helped the WPRA create an atmosphere that was more inclusive and contestant friendly. This year’s event will once again have $80,000 in added money with an additional $12,500 to be paid out in bonus money through the WPRA’s Pro Elite Stallion Incentive program. In addition, eight world champions will be crowned along with numerous 2011 WPRA World Finals champions. Back by popular demand will be the $10,000 added Permit Only event, giving permit and new members a chance to fill their permit at the end of the week. New for 2011 will be an added Saturday night performance that will feature the final round of the Junior Division barrel race, a bonus round for WPRA’s top ropers and will conclude with a WPRA World Finals Pro Futurity slot race that will feature 4 and 5year old horses competing in a one-run finals for a share of $37,500.00 based on a full field of all entries. “We were very pleased with our 2010 event and we are looking for an even bigger and better event this year,” said WPRA World Finals Event Coordinator Robin Hofmann. “We are excited about adding our Saturday night performance that we think will be a fun event for not only our members but for our fans in the Lincoln area. The City of Lincoln and the Lancaster Event Center have been great hosts and we hope to produce a great event for them showcasing the best in Women’s Professional Rodeo.”

World Titles up for grabs As in years past World Champions will be named and honored in the standard WPRA Roping events (Team Roping Heading and Heeling, Breakaway and TieDown) as well as the WPRA Junior barrel

race, the WPRA Futurity (for horses 5 years old and younger) and the WPRA Derby (for horses 7 years old and younger). A total of $10,000 in added money will be up for grabs in the team roping (split evenly between heading and heeling), while $5,000 will be added to the breakaway, derby and junior world title race. A total of $5,000 will be added to the tie down roping.

Card Holders and Gold Card members Although the WPRA World Champion Barrel Racer will not be crowned until December at the Wrangler NFR, the WPRA World Finals will name a World Finals champion barrel racer upon conclusion of the $20,000 Added Card Holders Race. While the Wrangler NFR is reserved for the top 15, this class is open to ALL current Card Holders and Gold Card members.

Permit Only members The WPRA World Finals is once again offering a $10,000 Added Permit Only barrel race. This “get you started” class is a perfect opportunity to win a large sum of money and fill your permit allowing you to buy a WPRA card as the 2012 Rodeo season gets into full swing.

Junior members $5,000 is being added to the Junior barrel race as an incentive for our younger members to make the trip. Making the WWF the premier Junior event of the season, as it should be. Upon the conclusion of this event the 2011 Junior World Champion will be crowned based on total money won during the year, including the World Finals information. The WPRA World Finals Card Holder and Permits Only events shall consist of two long rounds, and a short round (with the top 30 average times from the two long rounds). The fastest three run average determines the 2011 WPRA World Finals Champion. The Junior barrel race will consist of two long goes. These three classes will run on a 2D format with a ½ second split.

Pro Futurity and Derby The Pro Futurity event offers $13,500 added money, and $5,000 added in the Pro Derby. The Pro Futurity will be run on a 2D Format (full second split) and the Derby will be a straight payoff, with both classes consisting of two long goes and an average.

Pro Futurity slot race The Pro Futurity Slot Race will be limited to 25 head with a $1,500 entry fee and 100-percent payback. The slot race is open to horses four (4) and five (5) year olds (foals of 2006 or after) who have never competed for money, points or prizes in barrel racing prior to Dec. 1, 2010. It is limited to one (1) slot per owner and one (1) horse per rider. Rider must be a current 2011 WPRA member in good standings. All slot horses must also be entered in the WPRA Pro Futurity.

HDnet’s “World Report” To Air Story On The Groundbreaking Use Of Stem Cells In Thoroughbreds Revolutionary new treatments with stem cells are healing horse injuries faster - and in some cases, saving them from euthanasia - Aired Tuesday, June 28 at 9:00 p.m. ET HDNet “World Report,” the network’s Emmy Award-winning news program, presents an in-depth look at the revolution in stem cell research. The World Report examines recent advances that are now

being used to treat injuries in horses, with promising implications for human orthopedics. The piece is the third and final installment in a three-part series entitled, “The Stem Cell Revolution.” Horse owner and breeder Bill Casner, a towering figure in the horse world, talks about how stem cells returned a champion, Lord of the Game, to the racetrack. “This horse came back and ran out over a half million dollars and won multiple graded races,” Casner says, “and we said, ’Whoa, man!’ It really returned this horse to a very high level of performance and allowed him to be as good as he could be.” One near-miraculous advancement involves the repair of cartilage. Just like humans, horses frequently injure and rupture cartilage, and so far, such injuries are largely incurable. Traditional treatments only manage the symptoms, controlling swelling or limiting pain. But new stem cell developments may change all of that, for humans, eventually, as well as horses. Dr. Wayne McIlwraith at the Orthopaedic Research Center at Colorado State University believes stem cells - when harvested and manipulated correctly - can re-grow cartilage. The challenge is to control what kind of tissue gets built, and to be able successfully recreate the process in the body, not just in the lab. McIlwraith also says that this research may very well lead to huge advances in the treatment of human injuries, too. As Dr. Bill Rodkey of Vail, Colorado’s Steadman Philippon Research Institute tells World Report, “I think the possibilities are absolutely unlimited…” Visit the following link to view a clip from the program: http://www.hd.net/ programs/hdnet-world-report/

Rain…Or Not

S

ometimes I feel as if I’ve spent my whole life looking up at the sky, hoping to see rain clouds. That’s left over from being a child during the infamously drouthy 1950s I’m sure. These days I’m joined by the city folks who usually ignore such things. We’re all looking up hoping to see some fluffy white – or dark blue even better – clouds in the middle of all that blue sky. It’s not pleasant to look at the sky and see smoke and flames instead of rain clouds. People are even praying for rain, which reminds me of my cowboy dad’s opinion of that. He was “agin” it. He said, “We’re not running this outfit, God is, and He knows what He’s doing. If we had rain right now it might cause a worse calamity, like getting overrun with grasshoppers and other critters.” Still, I’m keeping my eyes pointed upward toward the sky much of the time. If water does actually fall I wanta go out and stand in it, taste it, smell it, tromp in the mud it makes. There’s an old joke that goes, “We get three inches of rain a year,” the old-timer said with a smile. The visitor from the East asks, “Why are you smiling?” to which the old-timer replies, “It came yesterday. Beautiful.” That’s optimism, which most of us Southwesterner’s share. We even brag about finding the bright side of whatever disaster we’re facing, sometimes while we’re in the middle of the mess. There are some notable exceptions, though.

We knew one old rancher, named Caleb, who made a career of being what he would no doubt call “crusty,” and what the rest of us would consider cranky as a rattlesnake who’d lost his fangs. He lived alone, which we all thought was because nobody would put up with him. He always came to the coffee shop, and the guys found him entertaining in his peculiar way. If somebody asked, “How’s your calves, Caleb?” he’d grumble, “They’re getting thinner by the day. I swear they’re losing weight ‘stead of gaining. Probably cuz their mamas can’t make enough milk offa that greasewood and prickly pear. If’n we don’t get rain soon those lizards are gonna be the only thing left on my place.” One day he thought about those lizards a bit more and said, “I may hafta learn how to rope those boogers and cook ‘em. That’ll be all there is to eat.” “You could butcher one of those skinny little calves,” somebody suggested, which elicited a snort from Caleb. “They’re so bony they wouldn’t be any good.” Finally, it did rain – one of those thunder-crashing, water gap smashing, arroyo ripping rains that crashed down all day and into the night. The coffee shop crew couldn’t wait to hear Caleb’s reaction. He surely couldn’t complain now. When he finally showed up several days later, he was asked, “So, how’s everything at your place now?” He growled, “Those lizards all turned into alligators and they’re eatin’ my calves.”

THE FIRST 5 STRAND CALF ROPE WITH A CORE What happens when five strands of low stretch poly fibers are woven around a solid braided core? You get a rope with speed and snap as quick as a viper’s strike, but with more consistency and less stretch than any calf rope on the market today. With the feel of your favorite polygrass and the strength and stability that only Coretech can give,you won’t break this rope. And like a viper, its the same every time…

Deadly accurate.
