NMRA Crowns 2011 Champions

T

he New Mexico Rodeo Association wrapped up the 2011 season linking it to a history of great rodeos throughout the past. The NMRA State Championship is a cherished treasure for many cowboys and cowgirls throughout the Southwest and the association has always set a standard for quality in the rodeo world. This season once again matched those in the past with many great rodeos throughout the year as well as their Finals. The Bernalillo County Sheriffs Posse Arena in Albuquerque played host to this years Finals and the covered facility was a welcoming sight for competitors. Great ground condition accompanied by plenty of room and a large arena to host the event,

was joined by great stock by three of the NMRA producers made for a great event. In addition, lots of great prizes and a pile of cash was handed out to winners of the rodeo, as well as this years state champions. Winning the highest awards this season were those who took home the NMRA State Championships. These cowboys and cowgirls covered lots of miles attending rodeos all across the Southwest earning money and awards along the way. But the states granddaddy of them all is those collected at the NMRA Finals – NMRA State Champion!

Congratulations to this year’s Winners! Bareback - Larry Carter Saddle Bronc - Chance Barnes Ranch Bronc Riding - Cody LeSueur Bull Riding - Joseph McConnel Rookie Bull Riding - Wyatt Harper Open Barrel Race - Caren Lamb Incentive Barrel Race Year End Champion - Lisa Girdner Breakaway Roping - Jessica Silva Open Calf Roping - JoDan Mirabal Incentive Calf Roping - Brian Sullivan Steer Wrestling - Kyle Smith Open Team Roping Header - Brandon Gonzales Heeler - Brian Sullivan Incentive Team Roping Header - JoDan Mirabal Heeler - Cody Mirabal The rodeo played out over the weekend of October 14-15, 2011. With Arena Director, Jeremy Sours taking the lead of the event, the stock contractors Richard Hodgson of the Bucking H Rodeo, longtime NMRA producer, Buster Webb of the W/A Rodeo and Mark Sanchez of Crossroads Rodeo Co. the event kicked things off in grand style. Randy Lewis played host to the announcers stand while judges, L.J. Braught

and Gid Allen marked rides flagged events and made sure the rodeo was ran smooth and fair for this years top 15 contestants in every event. As the rodeo played out, several top names hit the spotlight including AllAround Cowboy Year End champion, JoDan Mirabal and All-Around Cowgirl Year End champion, Jessica Silva. JoDan made several stops along the winning trail throughout the rodeo and took home not only the All-Around title, but also gathered the Open Calf Roping Year-End title, as well as the Incentive Team Roping header year-end Titles. Silvia earned her share on the way to her All-Around women’s title. She collected checks in the Breakaway roping, in which she also claimed the year-end titles for and in the Incentive team roping. Others who topped their events at the rodeo included, Saddle Bronc rider Lon Danley who won both rounds and the Average, but was unable to unseat Chance Barns who claimed this years ?NMRA state championship. Adding the Ranch Bronc Riding to this year’s event list opened up another chance for cowboys to claim part of the NMRA history. Winning the year-end championships was Cody LeSuer who placed in both rounds. However, Caleb Gillard took the win on both rounds and the Average of the NMRA finals. In the Open Bull Riding Joseph McConnel opened up the first round with a win that eventually catapulted him to the top of the standings earning him the year-end title. Winning the second round, Lon Danley’s high marked ride of 88 points also earned him the Average title of this years NMRA Finals. In the Rookie Bull Riding, Wyatt Harper was the man to beat.

NOVEMBER 2011

Competitorial A

fter a seemingly lackluster summer, the last couple of months have been full of important news for team ropers across the country. First, the USTRC announced last month that they will be adding a million dollars to the payout at the National Finals of Team Roping, thereby allowing them to restructure their payout to reflect a full 2/3 payback at every event. Now, it has been announced that after four years of head-butting, the USTRC and World Series of Team Roping have come together and settled some of the confusion among ropers with regard to handicap classifications. As of the beginning of the 2012 season, World Series events will be utilizing the USTRC’s TRIAD classification system for determining team roper handicap classifications. Of course the question that everyone seems to be asking is, why now? I don’t think there is one definitive answer, but I do know that trying to leverage ropers to compete at USTRC events vs. World Series events based on the classification system implemented was NOT in the overall best interest of the sport. Though the two entities will continue to produce their own events, at least there is some continuity in knowing that a single classification system will be used. I’ve talked to a couple of ropers who were not too joyous about the announcement, indicating they expected to

NMRA Finals

see an increase in their classification. I honestly had to chuckle a little bit, as I interpret it as an admission that under the World Series Classification system they were “under” classified. Look, I’ve been around the whole “new classification” rouse for a while now. If you have a team roping organization that you want ropers to get excited about, adopting your own classification system and “manipulating” it to garner popularity among ropers is a great idea. Even if the original intent is not to bastardize the USTRC’s system, it always drifts in that direction, be it intentional or not. The problem is that it’s an enticement ploy that has a huge cost on the back end. Eventually all those bastardized classifications come back to haunt you, and then you either make wholesale classification increases, or you don’t… either choice results in backlash against the organization from which it never emerges with any success. I think, however, this is the exception. No question that World Series gained some favor in the eyes of those ropers who were benefactors of classification decreases, and a speculative conclusion can be drawn that those changes were about to catch up with them. If that was the case, turning classifications back over to the TRIAD system is a pretty smart move when you think about it. Not only does it clean up a classification snarl within the organization, World Series is

covered their bull sin the first round, Harper claimed his fame winning the second round, the average and this year’s NMRA State Championship title. The Open barrel race was exciting to watch form beginning to end. The action was ho and the competition between the two top racers was even hotter. Caren Lamb blasted a 17.249 second run to win the first round. In round number two, Kelly Waide took to the spotlight running a 16.850 second run to win that round, and move her into the rodeos Average championship. However, it was not enough to push her pat Lamb who ultimately won this years

NMRA State championship. As the Incentive racers hit the floor, it was several different names who had the fastest runs in the rounds. Jori Harwell took the first round win with an 18.013 second run. Round two went home with Lisa Girdner, but it was the consistency of Rachel Maestas who earned the Average4 championship. Girdner’s season ended well as she earned the NMRA State Championship. Keeping with the women of the sport, All-Around champions, Jessica Silva took home the Breakaway roping state title, but the Finals rodeo was all Joru

off the hook for some of those impending classification increases... “Hey, don’t blame us, TRIAD did it.”… Brilliant! Ultimately however, I think the real reason behind the move is that classifications are a @#$@#% to operate and maintain. It’s an expensive process, it’s difficult, and ropers (other than a select few) hate you. Unless you’re set up to do it like the USTRC’s TRIAD system, where it’s primarily data driven and objectively based, it will just flat out wear you out. The responsibility of establishing and maintaining a classification system is basically an enormous, thankless burden. It’s one of those necessary evils. The sport absolutely needs it to survive, but nobody really wants to do it. I’m sure if classifications somehow miraculously fell out of the sky, the USTRC would be delirious with relief. There have been a lot of guys with successful team roping associations lured into the roping classification game over the years. It’s tempting on a number of levels, and I think some even see it as having profit potential. That said, I’ll bet you can’t find me one of them who will tell you in retrospect it was a good idea. None of it really matters at this point. I’m just glad to see the universe in a little better balance as a result of one system being used. I’m all for ropers being able to make a choice where they spend their entry dollars and I’m just glad that their choice between entering USTRC vs. World series events isn’t based on which classification system works best in their

Flom. She won round one with a 2.68 second run and placed second in round two behind Alice Pack who lit one up in 2.78 seconds. Flom’s top two placements in the rodeo earned her the Average Championship. First place money went three ways in the Open Calf Roping. Johnny Salvo took home the first place check in round one, while Chance Barnes won round two. Both had smoking run in the e-second range. The Average however went to Christian Sanchez who place fourth in round one and second in round two. Jodan Maribal was named the NMRA Open Calf Roping State Champion.

favor. Let the free market determine the future course of the sport. Ultimately that’s best for everyone. The NMRA Finals were held this past weekend and despite putting their best foot forward, it provided a glaring reflection of the state of rodeo, not just in New Mexico, but throughout the Southwest and the entire country. Times are tough right now for the sport and tough times always seem to bring out the worst. Now is the time for members of these associations to pull together and resist against the temptations that too often result in infighting and often times the ultimate implosion of the organization itself. The NMRA is the longest standing rodeo association in the state, and as such has played an important role in maintaining the tradition and legacy of the sport in New Mexico and the Southwest. Pulling together now will insure that remains to be the case in the future. Closing things out his month, I’m headed out the door to the Cinch USTRC National Finals of Team Roping in Oklahoma City. It’s always the biggest and best team roping event of the year, and at last check it looks like entries are going to be up significantly over last year. They estimate that $4 million in cash and prizes will be awarded over the eight-day event, and no self-respecting team roper should miss it… I can’t think of a better place to be the last week of October.

Sullivan from start to finish. He knocked a home run winning the first and second rounds, the Average and the year-end championship. The big men of rodeo were present and in fine fashion for the Steer Wrestling event. Although year-end champion Kyle smith did not earn a check at the rodeo, his great season earned him the state championship. Round one went home with Cooper Kirkpatrick who threw his steer in 5.7 seconds. Lance Tolbert won round two with a 7.1 second run and the Average championship was collected by Kyle Maez after winning second in both rounds. Nothing but team roping left to talk about, The Open Team Roping was filled with some of the best ropers in the state. Brandon Gonzales and Seth Hall took control early in the event winning round one with a 5.2 second run. Round two went to Cooper Wimberly and Shawn Willis who posted a 4.87 second run, but it was the team or Gonzales and Hall who claimed the Average title with a two head total of 11.1 seconds. The good showing at the finals helped Gonzales earn the Open Team Roping Heading State Championship, while Brian Sullivan had earned enough money throughout the year to keep his name at the top of the Open team roping heeling standings and allowed him to carry home the state championship. In the Incentive Team Roping, the team of JoDan Marabal and Cody Marabal were the team to catch in the standings and no one did. They claimed the NMRA State header and heeler championships. However the excitement at the rodeo was great in the Incentive Team Roping. Manny Romerao and Christian Sanchex roped their first steer in 7.6 seconds to win the round while Beau Lamb and Marcus Elkins took home the second round win with a 6.7 second run. Lamb came back to win the Average, but it was with heeler Tim Lamb that he did it with. Beau and Tim placed in both rounds to win the average title. This years event shaped up to be good compared to today’s economical hardships that has no doubt played a roll on rodeo families across the southwest. Thanks to the hard work of many, as well as the great list of sponsors, the NMRA season chalked up another success mark on the board of New

Cowboys for Cancer

T

he 29th annual Cowboys for Cancer Research event was once again a huge hit among team ropers in the Southwest. As one of the longest running team roping events in the country, the annual roping event held at the Sproul Arena in Las Cruces, New Mexico on Saturday and Sunday, October 8 and 9 was once again a true success. Not only was the team roping action hot, the roping once again played a huge role in many lives of those battling cancer. The event began with a sold-out dinner and dance on October 7th at the Las Cruces Convention Center and from then on, the weekend was all team roping and not one ropers will forget about. Lots of money won, great cattle and good time were abundant. Cowboys for Cancer Research Team Roping October 8 -9, 2011 Sproul Arena, Las Cruces, New Mexico Mega Ten Average 1.

USTRC / WSTR Meeting in the Middle Statement from The USTRC USTRC has worked more than 20 years to ensure the continued growth and fairness of the sport of team roping, while at the same time acting to provide the most financially lucrative competition model for all levels of team ropers in the sport. As you know, USTRC has long carried the burden of classifying ropers in the sport on a National level. Classification is certainly the least enjoyable part of the responsibilities of USTRC, but at the same time, it is arguably the most important. It is the reason the sport of team roping has blossomed into the most participated and dynamic of all equine sports. It is the reason that on any giving weekend ropers from coast to coast can come together to compete with and against each other on a level playing field. It is the reason that millions of dollars are paid out each year to ropers from all walks of life. It is also the reason USTRC has dedicated so many resources toward the development of a more fair, performance based National system, which is available for all ropers and producers to use. While it is true there are other state and regional based classification systems in effect today; it is also true that most, if not all, of them rely on the TRIAD system as their baseline for determining classifications. Clearly, the value of one classification

system would be the best way to serve the roper and would require that the full scope of a roper’s competition be evaluated in order to assign the correct classification. To that end USTRC has come to an agreement with the World Series of Team Roping that will in many ways accomplish that goal. This agreement will become effective January 2, 2012. To be clear, USTRC and WSTR haven’t merged, but there are things we can do together for the betterment of the sport and ropers alike. For starters, we can operate under the guidelines of one classification system. Beginning now USTRC and WSTR are working together to convert WSTR classifications to the TRIAD system using past and present performance data from both associations. Next, World Series events will honor USTRC memberships, which means ropers who compete in both associations will only have to purchase one membership. Note: WSTR memberships will still be available to ropers who choose not to join USTRC, but as mentioned, will be powered by the TRIAD system. Finally starting January 2, 2012 or the first WSTR qualifier of the new season, USTRC members will be allowed to count up to $3,000 of their winnings for a single placing at WSTR events toward qualifying for USTRC Regional and National Finals. For example, a USTRC member that earns $5,000 for placing 1st in the average of a

The New USTRC 2012 and What is Coming Courtesy of Ben Clements / SuperLooper Magazine

T

here has been a lot of talk about the USTRC and what is coming for 2012. Some of the rumors are true and some are just that, rumors. So here is what you as a team roper can count on for 2012 from The New USTRC. The theme for the 2012 season is tied in with the United States of America and the Declaration of Independence. The USTRC is also in a state where it can revolutionize the sport of team roping and doing some things that have never been done before. Just like the United States of America making its independence from Great Britain and then venturing out on its own, the USTRC is going where no one else has gone before. Undoubtedly the most revolutionary thing that will happen in 2012 is that the USTRC will guarantee at least $1 Million added to the Cinch National Finals of Team Roping (NFTR). In years past there has been that much money and more, but it came from the Shoot-Out Fund. In other words, it came from the ropers and producers contributions at sanctioned events throughout the year. In 2012 that money will no longer come from you, it is guaranteed by USTRC. By the USTRC not taking the Shoot-Out fee and with a full two thirds of the pot being paid back to the roper, that also means that an estimated $1 Million dollars will be paid back at USTRC sanctioned events throughout the year. Without a doubt, this is revolutionary because it is something that has never been done before. Get ready, because you will not want to miss out on the opportunity to add some much needed cash to your pockets. “The 2012 season marks a historic juncture in USTRC history as we continue our quest to provide greater value to our members,” said USTRC President Kirk Bray. “Now, ropers who cannot attend the Cinch NFTR won’t see their money siphoned off to an event he or she cannot attend. The NFTR will remain intact with the enormous cash purses and nominal entry fees that have made the NFTR the preeminent team roping year after year.” With the correlation to the United States of America and the Declaration of Independence, one thing you will notice is the new look of the USTRC sanctioned event ads. The fonts, the colors and the graphics all tie into that theme. The USTRC is proud to be American and proud to offer the same opportunities for its members. The heart and soul of the USTRC is the membership. The organization is for the ropers, by ropers and of the ropers. You as a member are an integral part of what is happening and where the USTRC is headed.

WSTR #11 division will be allowed to count $3,000 of those earnings toward USTRC Regional and National Finals. For WSTR earnings of less than $3,000, the roper will be allowed to count the entire dollar amount toward USTRC Regional and National Finals qualification. Furthermore, WSTR members will be allowed to count their WSTR earnings, up to $3,000 per placing, toward USTRC Regional and National Finals qualification upon purchasing their USTRC membership. These earnings will be instated retroactively with events starting January 2, 2012. USTRC views this arrangement as a positive for the sport of team roping, ropers and producers. We look forward to working with WSTR in hopes of finding more ways to benefit all. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 254.968.002

Statement from WSTR Classifications For 2012 Season This morning September 30th, we are announcing that WSTR will be using TRIAD classifications in 2012, just as we did from 2006 to 2009. It was a mutual decision that will be described in detail below, but as part of the deal we continue to offer WSTR memberships but will also accept current USTRC memberships cards to collect winnings at our ropings. The roping advertisements will read as follows, WSTR Membership or USTRC memberships required: You may purchase your 2012 WSTR card for $60 onsite, online, or by calling 505-898-1755. WSTR Memberships are free to ropers 70 and older. This announcement in every ad will have no impact on ropers who dont play the USTRC game. The remainder will still need a WSTR membership to collect winnings. However because we are accepting TRIAD classifications, if you are already a 2012 USTRC member, you will not be required to purchase a WSTR membership to attend WSTR qualifiers. We will continue to offer the benefits of a WSTR membership and you may want to join both, but we are providing this as a money saving service to you. This arrangement will begin at the New Year ropings. If you show up to any WSTR qualifier without a membership to either organization, you will be required to purchase a WSTR membership before you can rope. We are scrambling to match the USTRC membership year by offering 2012 World Series memberships from this point forward. We werent prepared to start renewal this early and it is causing a few complications, and we ask your patience while we get all the procedures worked out! It was no surprise that the WSTR business model we started with in 2006 did not involve an association membership and especially not classifications! Most of you are familiar that my exhaustion over the problems with classifications was the primary reason we sold USTRC. The WSTR business goal we started with (06 thru 09) worked well in the first four years of operation, however, by the end of 2009

we had ropers refusing to rope with WSTR because we were requiring USTRC membership. Forget all the other minor issues and problems between the two groups, the big problem for us was the exclusive USTRC membership requirement. We just couldnt live with it. The dilemma we faced at that point.. should we do the one thing in this business we dislike the most (classifications), or.should we try to live without a significant percentage (40%)of our customers. So in 2009 we went to USTRC and tried to work out a possible solution to our dilemma. Their business policy of 20 years was still working and they did not want to abandon it just for us. We had no choice but to create a membership organization with classifications as we never even considered trying to operate without 40% of you. We gritted our teeth, developed an IT department, event software, set up a classification office, found a communication tool (Spin To Win), and despite our personal dislike about getting back in the association/classification business, here we are today. We were unsuccessful again in 2010 in reaching a compromise with USTRC. However, this summer USTRC and WSTR were able to compromise on all the major impediments to operating under one handicap system. For you folks who really get into the rumor stuff and general BS, dont get carried away with this announcement. This is simply about classifications and the two organizations havent jumped into any partnership deals. If there are things that can be mutually beneficial to both groups and the roping customers, then obviously they will happen. As an example, your winnings at WSTR qualifiers will get you to the big show in Vegas and will also count toward the USTRC program. We have no opposition to this at all, as it benefits a significant portion of our ropers and solidifies roper data for classifications. The WSTR memberships will be powered by TRIAD. Arkie Kiehne will still be involved with classifications, but his role will change. He will have no role in USTRC handicaps but will act as a liaison between WSTR and USTRC in doublechecking classifications and appeals for those ropers who have a WSTR membership only. Every effort will be made to make sure that the two organizations agree and have codified classifications. Classifications between the two organizations started to drift apart in 2010 and it wasnt a good situation for the roping industry. In rare instances where USTRC and WSTR absolutely cannot agree on a classification, an official EXCEPTIONS list will be posted online at WSTRoping.com and with every qualification secretary. This year World Series of Team Roping had over 11,000 ropers participate in our qualifiers. This agreement is a big deal for the 6,000 ropers who participate in both associations. It will simplify the process for those ropers. Considering these tough economic times, it makes no sense for the two largest associations in the industry to duplicate the same services when the outcome of classifications is the same in 90% of the cases. This lets us get back to focusing our attention on producing the best paying, richest and most elite ropings in World! Thanks for roping with us. Sincerely, Denny Gentry

Giving Thanks

Story and Photos Compliments of Jim Olson

It started close to 400 years ago in New England. The modern Thanksgiving holiday tradition traces its origins to a 1621 harvest celebration at Plymouth. There is also evidence of an earlier celebration by Spanish explorers in Florida during 1565. As far back in recorded history as you can go, around the world, there have been celebrations of thanks at harvest time.

once-a-year holiday tradition. Daily thanks are more important than some may realize. It has the power to set the tone of an entire day, project, week, year, or lifetime. It is hard to be grouchy, negative or in a bad mood when you are focusing on being thankful! I start every day by giving thanks for my many blessings in life…even if at times they seem hard to count. But no matter what kind of spirit I wake up in, it doesn’t take long to change my outlook once I’ve thought about the positives in life.

The Plymouth feast and Thanksgiving are what we now celebrate, however. They were prompted not only by a good harvest, but also in appreciation of the Wampanoag Indians who helped the Pilgrims by providing seeds; also teaching the settlers the fine art of hunting in the area. Some say if the Indians could have foreseen the future onslaught of European settlers coming, they may not have been so hospitable! But seriously, it would not have mattered; this continent was destined to be discovered by the rest of the world. Sooner or later, somebody would have “found it,” that’s for sure. Progress and change were coming no matter what. I always say there is a silver lining to every situation. Thinking along those lines, looking at it from a positive point of view, folks should be glad the Pilgrims who came here first (after the Indians that is) were the Christian-based Europeans. Imagine if Red China or another country such as that had gotten here ahead of Columbus. There would be no “Native American” culture alive and thriving here…or any other type of free “American” culture for that matter. “Some people grumble that roses have thorns; I am grateful that thorns have roses.” Alphonse Karr There are always positives in every situation, something to be thankful for; you just have to look for it. I am thankful that America is here today. Being thankful is so much more than a

can, or that you can’t, either

“Whether you think that you way you are right.” Henry Ford

“What ever a man sows, that he will also reap.” Gal. 6:7 Remember what we plant within ourselves in the way of thoughts, feelings and attitudes are the seeds of our outer life experiences. All things have their beginnings within us…in thought. For some that is hard to believe, others never really think about it, but upon further analysis, it can be no other way. “The ancestor of every great action is a thought.” Ralph Waldo Emerson If you approach life in a surly or negative mood that is exactly what life will give you back. Snapping at the person behind the counter or on the other end of the phone does not get you better customer service. As a matter of fact, it gets you worse service and you will not get favors, special treatment or opportunities that a positive person in a good mood will get. Give attitude – get attitude, in one-way or another that is always the case. When you get right down to it, it is your thoughts, which control your attitude. How you think about things determine your being in a good or bad mood. Besides not getting customer service and productive interactions with your

fellow man, thoughts are also the basis of most everything material as well. Buildings, machinery, techno-devices, money and such do not just spring into reality on their own, by spontaneous combustion. They originate as the product of someone’s thoughts and dreams first. Folks who invent and plan those products and successful ventures never do so out of negativity or with a “that won’t work” type of attitude. “Whether you think that you can, or that you can’t, either way you are right.” Henry Ford Many go as far to say that things on the invisible plane such as “luck,” “fate,” and “chance,” whether good or bad are created through your own thoughts. Think productive, happy, positive thoughts and things seem to go your way. Be negative, grouchy and surly and things never seem to work out for you. The latter type of folk generally point a finger at the positive type and say things like, “He was just born lucky, everything he touches turns to gold while everything I touch turns to bull manure.” The so-called “Midas touch.” They honestly believe that then wonder why life turns out bad for them. There is a direct correlation between what you think and feel and how things turn out for you. Think about it: Everything starts with a thought (even this great big universe started out as a Divine thought somewhere). How you think then sets the tone for how you feel. Negative, grouchy thoughts turn into bad moods just as happy, positive thoughts turn into good moods. How you feel, determines the mode of action you take in life. If you feel good, you interact with folks likewise. You come up with positive solutions to obstacles in business or work; the opposite is also true if you are surly or negative. Last, but not least, your actions become chain-reactions, which set up the results you get from life. Nobody likes to be around a grouch. They will find ways to excuse themselves from a situation as soon as possible. People do not like to see you coming if they know the exchange may be an unpleasant one. Also, when an opportunity comes along, whom do you think gets first chance at it? Not the guy who is negative, that’s for sure. So your actions have a direct correlation

on the results you get out of life; that has not been disputed for ages: “Work harder,” “Try more,” “Dig deeper,” “Go the extra mile,” are all sayings which have been around forever it seems. What folks don’t always realize, however, is the attitude they approach life with makes a big difference in how well those work ethics pan out for them. I guarantee the guy with a happy and positive attitude, and the same work ethic, will beat out the grumpy one…sooner or later. “When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around.” Willie Nelson So what does all of this have to do with giving thanks, you may ask? Simple. By being thankful for what you have, by focusing on your blessings in life instead of the shortcomings, it naturally puts you

By being thankful for what you have, by focusing on your blessings in life instead of the shortcomings, it naturally puts you in a better mood. It is hard to remain in a bad mood when you focus on being grateful.

in a better mood. It is hard to remain in a bad mood when you focus on being grateful. Thinking about what you don’t have in life instead of being thankful for what you do have is counter-productive anyway. “A man is just about as happy as he makes his mind up to be.” Abraham Lincoln That is a profound statement. How do you make your mind up to be happy, one may ask? Start with being thankful and you are half way there. “And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord, giving thanks to God the Father.” Col. 3:17


ll-Around Great people of achievement, and the Bible, tell us over and over again to be thankful. Why do they do this? Because they know by being thankful, you put your thoughts into a more positive mode. Doing this changes your attitude. As you change your attitude, you change how you approach life. When you approach life feeling good and positive, your actions (efforts) change, then you get better results. “I thank God for my handicaps. For through them, I have found myself, my work and my God.” Helen Keller Try not to focus on things outside of your control; it does no good anyhow. Start with being the best you can be, work on self first, then your whole world changes. It is simple. The great people of the past and God have always taught us this - good starts from within. Of course, this eventually manifests into better realities without. The easiest way to begin is by being thankful for what you now have. I recommend you do it daily at a minimum. It will have a profound and positive effect on your life. This Thanksgiving, there is nothing wrong with sitting around, stuffing yourself on a nice home-cooked meal. But please remember that giving thanks (not just oncea-year or once-a-week - but daily) is a very important step in creating the reality you will live with tomorrow and every tomorrow thereafter. A

NOVEMBER 2011

Dear Ropers, Do you feel like a million dollars? That is exactly what the USTRC is about to bestow on all of its competing members in 2012. Not to feel like a million dollars, but to present all of you collectively with an actual million dollars in cash! This is a game changer, as it far exceeds anything that has ever been done at the USTRC since the invention of the Shoot-Out. The consequences are going to be truly revolutionary. Why? Because instead of you, the roper, contributing added money to the National Finals Shoot-Out Fund, that money will now be provided solely by the USTRC, and it’s guaranteed to be a minimum of One Million Dollars! From here on out, not one dime of your entry fees will go toward added money at the National Finals of Team Roping (NFTR). For those of you who are unclear on how huge payouts at the NFTR have been previously generated, here is a quick reminder. A critical aspect of USTRC’s success was to create a National Finals event unsurpassed in the amount of money awarded to its National Champions. That goal has been accomplished, signified by the fact that for the last 11 years, over one million dollars of added money has magnified the incredible purses at the USTRC National Finals of Team Roping. Until now, a large portion of that money has come from the roper, in the form of a five percent contribution coming

out of your entry fees at every USTRC sanctioned roping. Your contributions helped to build the National Finals of Team Roping into the sport’s premier event – the largest and richest team roping in the world. In appreciation for all you’ve done, the USTRC is stepping up to contribute all of the added money, and we guarantee to add one million dollars to the NFTR purse. This commitment demonstrates how much faith the USTRC has in this sport and its members. But what exactly does this pledge mean to you? It means cash purses at every sanctioned event will dramatically increase. Based on roper contributions in 2011, over $750,000 more cash will be paid out at sanctioned events per season, without you having to lift a financial finger. That’s the new deal, the revolution USTRC is initiating right now. But the roper is not the only beneficiary. The business of producing team ropings is not an easy road to travel. USTRC producers have a substantial commitment in time, effort and money for every roping they put on, with no guarantee to earn a profit. And ropers, they do HAVE to earn a profit, or they will not be in this business very long. So the USTRC further pledges support of the unsung heroes of our business – the producers. You may not be aware that USTRC producers have also significantly contributed to the National Finals Shoot-Out Fund. In 2011, producers

added over a quarter of a million dollars out of their pocket to the Shoot-Out Fund. In the 2012 season, producers are no longer required to contribute to the Fund. This helps our producers stay in the game so they can continue providing ropers the best productions found anywhere in the sport of team roping. So, the revolution is upon us. The 2012 season marks a historic juncture in USTRC history as we continue our quest to provide greater value to our members. Now, ropers who cannot attend the Cinch NFTR won’t see their money siphoned off to an event he or she cannot attend. But the NFTR remains intact with the enormous cash purses and nominal entry fees that have made the NFTR the preeminent team roping year after year. Now cash purses at sanctioned events will grow by more than an estimated $750,000. You no longer need a math degree and a Cray computer to figure how much of your entry fees go into the roper’s pot. That number is two-thirds. Period. End of story! Sincerely,

Kirk Bray

USTRC Claims one more Stop Duke City Classic Albuquerque, New Mexico November 25-27, 2011 The Horseman’s Arena in Albuquerque is a great place to spend a weekend roping and the USTRC is taking advantage of it. The Duke City Classic will take place November 25 thru the 27 and it will be a culmination of all Kenny Zamora has to offer ropers. The roping is a brand new USTRC Sanctioned event and one that will fit into the USTRC schedule nicely. The facility is roperfriendly, the roping will be well run and the weekend in Albuquerque will spark off the imagination. The roping will, of course, feature the

USTRC’s new payout structure and so a full two thirds of the roping pot will be paid back to the ropers. There is no longer a Shoot-Out fee being taken out at the Sanctioned events and the USTRC is guaranteeing that $1 Million will be added to the 2012 Cinch USTRC National Finals of Team Roping. That means that opportunity is everywhere and ropers can really win big. The true Southwest awaits every roper in Albuquerque. Ropers and their families can immerse themselves in a rich culture and heritage rooted in centuries of history. Visitors can soak up blue skies and sunshine as they participate in the Duke City Classic.

Ropers can breathe the high desert air with the pale hint of sage and pinion. In a heartbeat ropers will come to understand exactly why Albuquerque is an awesome destination for USTRC ropers. Whether you are interested in the diversity of cultures, the history, the shopping, the entertainment or just the roping, Albuquerque offers a taste of delight for even the most difficult palettes. Good food, ample lodging and excellent entertainment and fun add to the positive vibes of all the weekend will be. It doesn’t matter what your flavor is, you can experience it in Albuquerque. You will certainly want to take the opportunity to get your fill of green chili and some authentic New Mexican cuisine. The enjoyable weather, the facility and the talents paralleled with the crew that Kenny Zamora brings on board makes the Duke City Classic a roping of choice going into the cool November calendar. Do not miss all Albuquerque has to offer, but more so, do not miss the Duke City Classic. Mark your calendar because it is a weekend you do not want to forget. The payout will be awesome and there will be some great prizes up for grabs.

National All Amatuers Thoughts from Ty Wow, can it really be October? It’s my favorite time of year not only because the holidays are right around the corner, but because it means a handful of great team roping finals are coming up. For all of you ropers going to the USTRC Finals in Oklahoma City and the WSTR Finals in Las Vegas this year, good luck! Keep your ear to the ground – there have been some rumors on the street that all of the Classification systems might start working together and get all ropers classified under one extremely accurate system. If you’ll remember, I was pretty skeptical of having a new organization (the WSTR) classifying ropers independently from the USTRC a couple of years back. At the time, I felt the USTRC had the most complete data on ropers. But the other side of the coin was that the older organization was still classifying some ropers based on data and perceptions that were maybe decades old, which in turn basically caused them to quit going. Today, however, with the continued popularity of the sport and all the new roping organizations out there, it’s easier than ever to review information on ropers, so competition should be as fair as it’s ever been. The WSTR finals pays $200,000 to win, and now the USTRC has announced that it’s going to add a million dollars to its finals. I would say the sport looks good going into 2012!

Louie & The Duke Classic This great event held Nov. 3-6 and put together by members of the Casa Grande community raises money to battle cancer through a team roping, golf tournament and charity auction. We’re lucky to get to participate by putting on the team roping portion of the Classics and sanctioning it as an NAA event. We’ve come up with a new format where we’re awarding trophy horse trailers to the high point roper each day. In addition, we’re awarding 10 Gist buckles in the #7 roping on Sunday. So we hope to see you there! It’s a great way to have fun while helping fight a disease that has wreaked havoc on so many people we know.

The Big Turkey This Thanksgiving event was the birthplace of the No Wolves Allowed roping, and we’re bringing it back Nov. 25-26 bigger than ever! Expect 6 trophy saddles and 8 Gist buckles to be awarded (all guaranteed), along with a 2/3 cash and prize payback. Friday’s #10 roping will give everyone a chance to get away from the couch and the relatives to come rope for first place, which is guaranteed to pay $5,000 no matter how many people put away the turkey and pie.

ou could say that four-time world champion heeler Allen Bach is fanatical about practice. He has $2.3 million and 30 NFR back numbers to prove it. It was fitting then, that he was one of the first pro ropers to introduce a machine into the marketplace, and for years continued evolving the product. Ever since then, he’s continued exploring ideas about steer simulation and timing, while using dummies extensively in his instructional program. Two years ago, Allen set out on a quest to create the most realistic machine ever built – one that travels and feels more like a real steer. It took countless changes and tiny adjustments, but Bach is confident that the result, dubbed “Smarty,” is the next best thing to a live Corriente. “My main goal was that I wanted this machine to become the best tool on the market to help you practice correctly,” said Bach. “I wanted it to help improve your roping, but I also designed it to be fun to rope – because if it’s fun, you’ll use it.” Traditionally, higher-numbered ropers have been skeptical about using a simulator, but Bach’s peers – and not just heelers – are raving about the practice they get with Smarty. “It’s more realistic than any other dummy I’ve used,” says defending NFR average champion header Luke Brown. “I just like the whole concept and what Allen’s done with it.” Headers like the fact that Smarty’s head and horns are the scale and size of a true Corriente. Plus, headers can make a full run on Smarty and when they face, the rope will pop off the turn-loose horns from the front. Here’s the most important new benefit – Smarty offers a sharper, faster corner to allow practice of any level of roping. Plus, it’s lighter-weight than other dummies and rides on wider skis, so your ATV won’t take the wearand-tear it would with heavier machines. Smarty’s legs narrow at the hock and spread at the feet and are made of solid materials, not plastic. Instead of producing a tinny feel when your rope hits them, they look and sound authentic. When a heeler dallies, the legs come together and pull back just like on a live steer. Where other machines give your horse a hard jerk when you dally, Smarty’s expanding hitch and legs mimic the jerk you get in a live run. By just pulling a few pins, you can actually break down and load Smarty in your truck or trailer by yourself and take it with you. Not only that, but the body is removable – a 10-year-old kid can grab the handle on top and lift Smarty off the sled. In less than two minutes, you can be heading it on the ground or heeling it like a saw horse – or just throw it in the back of the pickup and take it to the roping. While comparable machines cost roughly $3,000 and dummies can run another $300, Smarty is two-in-one and is priced at $2,000. For more information, call 888-908-9047 or visit www.smartroping.com.

ll-Around states and tribes can develop systems for tracing animals that work best for them and for producers in their jurisdiction. This approach offers great flexibility at the state and local level and addresses gaps in our disease response efforts.” Under the proposed rule, unless specifically exempted, livestock moved interstate would have to be officially identified and accompanied by an interstate certificate of veterinary inspection or other documentation, such as owner-shipper statements or brand certificates. The proposed rule encourages the use of low-cost technology and specifies approved forms of official identification for each species, such as metal eartags for cattle. However, recognizing the importance and prevalence of other identifications in certain regions, shipping and receiving states or tribes are permitted to agree upon alternative forms of identification such as brands or tattoos. “Our proposal strives to meet the diverse needs of the animal agriculture industry and our State and tribal partners, while also helping us all reach our goal of increased animal disease traceability,” said chief veterinary officer for the United States, Dr. John Clifford. “We believe reaching our goals on traceability will help save the industry and American taxpayer’s money in the long term.” Animal disease traceability, or knowing where diseased and at-risk animals are, where they’ve been, and when, is very A

important to make sure there can be a rapid response when animal disease events take place. An efficient and accurate animal disease traceability system helps reduce the number of animals involved in an investigation, reduces the time needed to respond, and decreases the cost to producers and the government.

battle is brewing between those in western communities who haul horses and the Department of Transportation (DOT). According to recent reports, the DOT may be cracking down on those who pull large horse trailers. Here is a quick look at how the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations affect horse trailers under current law. In 1986, Congress passed the Federal Commercial Motor Vehicle Safety Act (FCMVSA/86). This law requires each State to meet the same minimum standards for commercial driver licensing. The states may have more stringent regulations of their own, but they may not lessen the standards. Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) has two definitions according to The United States Department of Transportation (USDOT), Federal Highway Administration FHWA. The difference comes into play when discussing requirements for Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR)

• Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) - a motor vehicle or combination of motor vehicles used in commerce to transport passengers or property if the motor vehicle: CRX’D • has a gross combination weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 lbs. or more inclusive of a towed unit with a gross vehicle weight rating of more than 10,000 lbs. • has a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 26,001 lbs. or more or •is designed to transport 16 or more passengers, including the driver: or •is of any size and is used in the transportation of materials found to be hazardous for the purposes of the Hazardous Materials Transportation Act and which require the motor vehicle to be placarded under the Hazardous Materials Regulations.

For The Purposes Of Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR)

!

Commercial Motor Vehicle means any self-propelled or towed vehicle used on public highways in interstate commerce to transport passengers or property when: • the vehicle has a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) or gross combination weight rating (GCVWR) or 10,001 or more pounds; •or the vehicle is designed to transport more than 15 passengers, including the driver; or the vehicle is used in the transportation of hazardous materials in a quantity requiring placarding under regulations issued by the Secretary under the Hazardous Materials Transportation Act. Interstate Commerce Any trade, traffic, or transportation in any State which is between a place in a State and a place outside of such State (including a place outside of the United States) or is between two places in a State through another State or a place outside of the United States. Intrastate Commerce 1. Any trade, traffic, or transportation in

any State which is not described in the term “interstate commerce” 2. Wholly within one state. “Commerce” can be more loosely defined as actually “involved in a commercial venture” or the “intent” to make a profit. This does not mean actually making a profit! Running a commercial stable, hauling horses for show (with intent to profit), race, sale, training, or for compensation are some examples of commercial enterprises. Prize money and showing to increase the value of the horse can be interpreted as profit. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) in general deal with the marking of the vehicle (identification signs on the vehicle), inspection sticker, medical card, log book, emergencies procedures, and parts and accessories necessary for safe operation. US DOT, FHWA publishes the Federal Motor Carrier Regulations Pocketbook.

How do these regulations and terms apply to horse trailers? • If you are driving a vehicle or combinations of vehicles under 10,001 lbs. GVWR or GCVWR, you don’t have to be concerned with the FMCSR’s or a commercial driver’s license (CDL). You must, however, follow the safety equipment requirements and driver’s license requirements of your own state. • If you are driving a vehicle or combination of vehicles interstate 10,001 to 26,000 pounds GVWR, you must decide if you are commercial and subject to FMCSR. You do not need a commercial driver’s license (CDL), although your home state may have an additional classification of driver’s license. (The initial decision is up to the owner whether or not he/she is pursuing a hobby or is involved in interstate commerce and he/she bears the burden of proof. If you only travel within your state, you may follow the state definitions of commercial, but if you plan to travel into other states and your vehicle or combination is 10,001 lbs. or more, the official recommendation from Federal Authorities is that you follow FMCSR’s) • If you are driving a vehicle or combination of vehicles intrastate 10,001 to 26,000 lbs GVWR, you must follow your home state requirements if they differ from the Federal requirements. • If you are driving a vehicle or combinations of vehicles 26,001 lbs. GVWR or more interstate you must have a commercial driver’s license (CDL) and you must follow FMCSR. • If you are driving a vehicle or combination of vehicles 26,001 lbs. GVWR or more intrastate, you must follow your state guidelines for commercial licensing (CDL), and FMCSR requirements. Farm exemptions can be obtained in some instances, but the vehicle must stay within 150 miles of home. Many states require trucks and trailers to have license plates that are labeled “commercial” but this does not always mean you are considered “commercial” in all states.

World Series of Team Roping News and Information 2011 WSTR Finale Short Round Changes 3HD Consolation Becomes 4HD Hello Everyone, during the next month you will begin to see more and more information on the Finales. 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 or clarification.

checks in the average with 21 through 30 paying $6000 per team. We will be adding twelve more positions for a total of fortytwo 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.

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.

WSTR Finale Stall Information South Point Horse Stalls The Cost Of Stalls Indoor stalls are $200. This includes 4 bags of shavings and access to a tack stall. The South Point requires all horse stalls to be pre-bedded with 4 bags of shavings. Stalls are assigned for the entire week (available for 8 days), with the shavings priced at $10/ea; with the cost averaged over the week, which is reasonable. Clearly the hotel has placed a little mark in the shavings, but we understand that the cost of disposing large amounts of shavings outside of Clark County is equal to the purchase price of the shavings. No outside shavings are allowed. Feed and shavings are available for purchase in the stall barn. Outdoor stalls are $175. These stalls are 10x10, covered, four-sided on dirt. This price includes 4 bags of shavings and availability for the entire 8 days. More Stall information including important updates on Tack Stalls can be found online at ww.wstroping.com.

NFR-Qualified Bownds Heads Resistol Rookie Of The Year Class

ll-Around

Courtesy of PRCA/ProRodeo handler Bownds’ middle name is Cash. It’s a surname from his mother’s side of the family. He has dollar signs on his chaps and boots to play off the name and also to pay tribute to bull riding great Wacey Cathey, who also rode with dollars signs on his chaps. “It has become sort of my trademark,” Bownds said. In a sport that measures progress and accomplishment by money won – cash – it all seems a more-than-fitting trademark for Bownds, one of the most gifted and exciting young bull riding talents to reach the PRCA in a few years. Bownds spotted Cody Teel and the rest of the field 4½ months at the start of the season before buying his card on Feb. 14, Valentine’s Day, and still had a sweetheart of a season in becoming the Resistol Bull Riding Rookie of the Year and the only first-year guy to qualify for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in 2011. He is joined in the Rookie of the Year rolls by bareback rider J.R. Vezain, steer wrestler Ty Erickson, team ropers Joshua Torres and Dakota Kirchenschlager, saddle bronc rider Sterling Crawley, tie-down roper Jud Nowotny and steer roper Rob Denny. “The key to being successful (as a bull rider) is staying confident,” Bownds said. “I mean, you have to go out there 110 percent sure of yourself, believing no bull can throw you off.”

And certainly Bownds has shown no signs of backing down. Since he bought his card, he’s competed in an average of 3.2 rodeos a week for 30 weeks. That comes to 96 rodeos, the ninth-highest total among PRCA bull riders, and he used those opportunities to bank $72,972 and finish the regular season 10th in the world standings. “I rodeoed my butt off,” Bownds said. “I really haven’t been home (to Lubbock, Texas) since Rodeo Austin (in late March).” He won the short round at Cheyenne (Wyo.) Frontier Days on his 20th birthday (July 31), entered the Top 15 for the first time by winning the Lea County Fair & PRCA Rodeo in Lovington, N.M. (Aug. 13) and tied the arena record with a 95point ride at the Ellensburg (Wash.) Rodeo (Sept. 5) to become the first rookie bull rider since Douglas Duncan in 2008 to qualify for the Wrangler NFR. Bownds sprained the AC joint in his right shoulder while making an 84-point ride in the first round of the Justin Boots Championships in Omaha, Sept. 22 – putting him out of the $724,688 rodeo – or otherwise he might have been somewhere closer to the top six in the final regularseason standings. “That (the injury) cost me a lot of money, but I should be fine for the Wrangler NFR,” Bownds said. “I have a rehab program I’m about to start, and I’ve got plenty of time to get ready.” He’s fine with the idea that he will go to

Las Vegas as an underdog, over-looked. At 5-0, 125 pounds, he’s used to that. “People look at me and see this little bitty kid,” Bownds said. “I know I look a lot younger than I am. I get mistaken for being 16 or 17 all the time. It’s OK that people doubt me. I just keep working hard and eventually they see I can ride.”

CBR Kitchen Wins Horizon Finals, White Wraps up Championship Title Texas cowboy Ronnie Kitchens left the CBR Horizon Series Finals in Winnie, Texas with a few thousand dollars in his pocket and the keys to a brand new Dodge truck. After placing sixth in both long rounds, Kitchens took third in the short go to pass Josh Barentine and claim the event win. His earnings at the finals also moved Kitchens up to fifth place in the standings for the year. Josh Barentine won the first two gorounds of the finals and rode his bull for 78 points in the short round. The score was good enough for sixth place in the round but left the door open for Kitchens to pass him by just over a point. Barentine left the finals with over $9,000 and the Reserve Champion buckle. The final event of the 2011 Horizon Series meant the close of this year’s race for the year-end title. Cody White of Johnson City, Tex. went into the finals sitting first in the standings. He held onto his lead and was named the 2011 CBR Horizon Champion. Chase Outlaw also maintained his position into the standings and is the 2011 CBR Horizon Reserve Champion. Horizon Series Finals Results 1. Ronnie Kitchens, 256 points 2.

B Y R YA N D AV I S

I

t is funny how one month there is not much to talk about and the next seems overwhelming. Lots of news and dirt hit this month and I am going to jump right into it. Rumors at the beginning of the month were that team ropers will have plenty of new roping machines to choose from in the very near future. Well, I did a little digging and did not get much response, but must have stirred up a little bit of anticipation as several press releases hit the main stream with information about a couple of these new roping machines. Although the rumors I heard had mentioned several machines coming out, two have officially surfaced and it looks as though ropers will have some choices to make when it comes to choosing a new practice tool. Other information is, of course, the big news of the USTRC and World Series playing nicely in the sand together, working with a single classification system. This is great news for the sport in general and I think ropers will enjoy it. It should close the door for those who like to flip flop from one association to the other, playing them against each other while slipping in with a lower classification and all but stealing money from other ropers. It will no doubt also eliminate some of the stress on both associations, allowing them to work on things to further expand the sport. Speaking of expansion, the USTRC has made a big splash with their new payout structure for 2012. Even as the USTRC Finals are playing out, the anticipation of larger event payouts,

41

while still offering big money at the Finals, is a great deal. I know the ropers I have talked with are looking forward to the new payout structure. Hitting a little closer to home, the NMRA Finals just happened and I have to say there are lots of opinions out there on the season-ender. I stopped by the Finals and it was a far cry from that of a decade or so ago, but was a pretty good rodeo as compared to a few I have attended lately. However, there are some who don’t share the same opinion. From rough stock riders to the timed event contestants there are those who are complaining about one thing or another. Whether it is the Finals itself or the overall association, I have heard it all over the past week. I hve learned, however, over the years that those who have something to complain about are always a lot louder than those who don’t. I have talked about this before and I have to say that those in the association need to keep their noses to the grindstone, their heads looking forward and work on what they think will be positive for the association. There are many ways to improve something and just because their views may not be the same as others, they need to work on what they think is correct. Like I said there is a lot to talk about this month, but I am out of room, so I will pick up on it all again next month. Until then – Happy Thanksgiving! Dirt – Keep it under your feet! Ryan Davis

PRCA Shorts Courtesy of PRCA – ProRodeo Roughstock Permit Holders of the Year Spotlighted In Vegas The top five permit holders from each roughstock event – based on total money at the end of the 2011 regular season – will be invited to compete Dec. 2-3 at the Benny Binion’s World Famous Bucking Horse and Bull Sale in Las Vegas. Participants in the PRCA Roughstock Permit Holders of the Year Challenge will be competing for a committee purse of $3,500 in each event, a Montana Silversmiths buckle, a gift certificate to Barstow Rodeo and a special gift from the Resistol Hat Company. The second-, third- and fourth-place finishers in each event will receive a pair of Justin boots and nobody leaves empty handed. The fifth-place contestant will receive a $100 credit toward his PRCA membership. All entry fees will be paid for by the organizers of the sale, and all 15 permit holders accepted into the competition at the South Point Hotel & Casino will receive apparel from Wrangler and a South Point vest. If any of the top five contestants is unable to take part, the PRCA will go down the list of permit-holder earnings until the field is complete. The winner of each event will be determined on total points from the gorounds. Each invited contestant is assured of two head. The first tie-breaker will be the single

highest-marked score from any round, and if there is still a tie, the next tiebreaker will be the regular season permit standings.

Creasy earns lots of green at Turquoise Circuit Finals Rodeo Recently graduated from Texas Tech University and a new dad, Luke Creasy is quick to acknowledge he has received “all kinds of blessings this year … more than I could have hoped for.” To this growing list he may now add bareback riding champion of the Ram Turquoise Circuit Finals Rodeo, which he won in his first try September 29 through October 1 with 246 points on three head for paychecks totaling $4,571. Creasy, a native of Brownfield, Alberta, won the second round with an 85-point ride on Salt River Rodeo’s Blue Sky and finished second in the other two rounds on his way to edging four-time Wrangler NFR qualifier Tom McFarland by two points. Wyatt Hancock, who suffered a separated right shoulder during the rodeo, finished as the year-end bareback riding champion for the third consecutive season. “I didn’t know what to expect there,” Creasy said, “but Salt River (Rodeo Company) did a good job of providing an even pen. I was fortunate to draw horses that wanted to buck or were having a good day. Blue Sky was real cool. He went up in the air right by the chutes and was

fun to ride the whole way, giving me a chance to be a little flashier and earn more points.” While in college, Creasy had competed in the Texas and Montana circuits but had never gotten his rodeo count high enough to qualify for the circuit finals. Now that he, wife Kylee and son, Cash, are settling into a new place in Eunice, N.M., it made sense to switch affiliations and compete in the Turquoise circuit, where residents qualify for the finals with just eight rodeos. “I know a lot of guys think it is a soft circuit that doesn’t have a lot of rodeos, but what it boils down to is there is a lot of talent here across the board. Just look at the saddle bronc riding field at the circuit finals, where they had Cody Taton and (2007 World Champion and 2011 regular-season world standings leader) Taos Muncy.” Taton, the 2008 Wrangler NFR average champion, won the RTCFR with 230 points on three head and Muncy, who finished third in the average, was the year-end champion for the third time in five seasons. The other champions at the Southern New Mexico State Fairgrounds were Dean McIntyre (16.6 seconds on three head), team ropers Brock Hanson and Lane Siggins (17.9 seconds on three head), tiedown roper Seth Hall (28.3 seconds on three head), steer roper Rob Denny (49.1 seconds on three head), bull rider Guytin Tsosie (164 points on two head) and barrel racer Sherry Cervi (48.33 seconds on three runs). All of the circuit finals and year-end champions qualify for the $500,000 Ram National Circuit Finals Rodeo in Oklahoma City next spring.

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.

Finals Entries Friday November 4 from Noon to 9 p.m. at 623-249-9506 You Must Call and Enter on November 4 or you will not be in the finals! (Be prepared to give your banquet reservations at time of entry!) There may be positions open in a couple of events - or someone in the top 15 may not attend. So, even if you are not in the top 15, call and enter to possibly fill an empty slot!

Contestants for finals determined as follows: (1) Must be member in good standing (no outstanding turnouts or fines); and (2) Must have attended 4 or more GCPRA Lead Sanction rodeos (Lake Havasu, Membership Drive Rodeo’s (2), Needles, Cottonwood, Globe, Sonoita, St Johns, Duncan, Holbrook, Willcox, Benson) Only contestants who fully qualify for the Finals (meet criteria as listed above and enter the Finals) are eligible for Year End Champion Awards. HOWEVER, every contestant competes for Finals buckles and cash awards. After positions are filled with contestants under the above conditions, any unfilled positions will be filled as follows: 1st with Money winners (after top 15) with four AZ rodeos (in order of position in standings—i.e., #16 will fill position before #17); 2nd with GCPRA members in good

GCPRA CES Phone Number: Rough Stock & Timed Events: (623) 455-8339 Team Roping: (623) 455-8385 Turnouts: (623) 455-8339 standings with 4 or more AZ rodeos in event; 3rd with Money winners with 3 AZ rodeos in event (in order of position in standings); 4th with GCPRA members in good standings with 3 AZ rodeos in event; 5th with Money winners with two AZ rodeos in event (in order of position in standings); 6th with GCPRA members in good standings with 2 AZ rodeos in event After the 15 places are filled we will create an alternate list. Alternates will be those who are next in line after the 15th placing. If an entered contestant medicals or vets out, the State Secretary will try to fill the opening with the next in line before the start of the performances. Alternates not receiving a call from the State Secretary may show up to the first performance only to see if an entered contestant has medicaled/vetted out of the finals. The rodeo secretary will have a list of the alternates showing who will receive the next spot. Alternates must check with the secretary two hours prior to the start of the first performance. Team Ropers - You may only enter once in each team roping category. The top 15 may only rope with other qualified team ropers in the top 15. Current USTRC or WSTR cards must be shown at payment of fees. Barrel Racers - If a barrel racer qualifies for both the incentive and open barrels, you must run a different horse in each barrel racing event. The incentive barrel race will not be placed until the open barrel racing is completed. The incentive time will be determined by taking the winning open time and adding .7 seconds (1.4 to total average time). So if you are not in the top 15 in barrels, still call in to be placed on the alternate list. If you have any questions or concerns at all, call Andi Tedder at 623-249-9506 prior to November 4. There will not be any changes made to previous standings after entries or at the finals.

he September Rodeo is in the books! The 2011 Bosque Farms Jr. Rodeo season kicked off to a great start on September 17-18. Kids from all across the state converged on the Bosque Farms rodeo arena and with the help of the local committee and many parent volunteers, the rodeo played out smooth and fast throughout both days. From lead-liners, rough stock riders, those competing in the 14-18 age group and all those in between the rodeo had lots of action and fun! The series will continue with all of these young talented rodeo stars competing one weekend a month in October and November!

Thanks to NM Tractor Sales for the use of the tractor during the September Rodeo!

Don’t Risk a Case of West Nile Virus April Knudson, DVM, is an Equine Specialist with Merial Veterinary Services. She has a special interest in sport horse lameness and internal medicine. She holds a doctor of veterinary medicine from the University of California-Davis. Below, she answers a question about the risk of West Nile Virus. Question: I haven’t heard much about West Nile Virus lately. Should I still be vaccinating for it? Answer: West Nile is a potentially deadly virus that causes encephalitis or inflammation of the brain. Transmitted by mosquitoes, the disease threatens horses, birds and humans. Since first being reported in the United States in 1999, more than 24,000 horses have been diagnosed with West Nile virus.1 Although the risk of getting the disease is lower now than it used to be, most likely due to the increase in vaccinated horses and naturally acquired immunity, West Nile virus continues to be a threat to horses.1 Because there is no known treatment for the disease and one out of three horses that gets sick from West Nile virus dies or must be euthanized,1 the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) continues to recommend vaccination.1 All horses should be revaccinated annually.1 RECOMBITEK® Equine WNV vaccine from Merial offers protection2 against West Nile and is available through your veterinarian. In addition to vaccinating, you can help reduce your horse’s chance of contracting WNV by limiting his exposure to mosquitoes. Because mosquitoes can breed in any standing water that lasts more than four days, consider adding these steps to your barn cleanup chores: • Turn over wheelbarrows, water buckets and wading pools when not in use. • Thoroughly clean livestock-watering troughs and buckets regularly. • Remove any potential mosquito breeding areas, such as trash can lids, pots, discarded tires, etc. • Drill holes in the bottom of containers left outside. • Do not allow water to stagnate in birdbaths. • Clean clogged roof gutters on an annual basis.

While the best way to help prevent equine diseases like West Nile virus is to vaccinate, horse owners can also take advantage of Merial’s new free “Outbreak Alert” program, which will tell them about the presence of confirmed equine disease in their area. Those who sign up at www.outbreak-alert.com will receive text and/or e-mail notification of disease threats within a 250-mile radius of any ZIP code provided. The site also includes maps showing the presence of disease throughout the country and general information about equine diseases.

About RECOMBITEK RECOMBITEK Equine WNV vaccines are made with a technology that allows the vaccine to stimulate a fast, strong immune response in your horse.3 RECOMBITEK rWNV-EWT is the only combination vaccine that uses advanced technology to help provide convenient protection against West Nile virus, while also helping to protect against Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE), Western Equine Encephalitis (WEE) and tetanus.

A Word form WPRA President The 2011 point year has ended and we are beginning the 2012 year. I hope many of you are planning on attending the World Finals in Lincoln, Neb. Our total entries are up and we are looking forward to a great event. We will be having our last general membership meeting of the year at the World Finals. If you are in Lincoln for the finals, plan to attend. These meetings are a great way for us to get your input which will help the directors when they make decisions that affect the entire membership. We have discussed the 30 hour replacement rule at the membership meetings. Many of our members have had the opportunity to move into these rodeos when there were turnouts. With this rule, it is important to remember to enter these rodeos whether you qualify or not because you just might get in. We had a good membership meeting at Pendleton and I want to thank all the members that took the time to attend. We had good input from the members that came. It was great to see some friends that I had not seen in a number of years and we


ll-Around

appreciated the great hospitality from the Pendleton Round-Up Committee. What a legendary rodeo! I had never been and thoroughly enjoyed it. There is so much history and tradition there. It is truly one of the last of its kind and they do love the barrel race there. You can read the minutes from the meeting online. Just a reminder to everyone, that you have only two releases for the year. Use them wisely and keep up with how many you have used. Turnouts are a problem in all the events including ours. Committees are counting on you to be there when you enter and when there are turnouts, it hurts their rodeo. It is a very good idea to always check to see if there are any special ground rules for the rodeo posted in the rodeo office or online. Also if you are entered, be sure to read the ground rules for the All American Finals, RNCF, and the Wrangler NFR. We have three new sets of timers that have been donated to the WPRA. They are two timers in one unit. We are very excited about trying these timers at the World Finals and the All American Finals. Our thanks to the donor. Congratulations to our members who have qualified for their Circuit Finals, the All American Finals, and the Wrangler NFR. Hope to see you in Lincoln at the World Finals. Good luck in the A coming year and travel safe wherever you may be going. Jimmie Munroe
