As we continue to improve this
rodeo we welcome your suggestions. You may want
to note some of the changes we have made for
this year in response to your suggestions.
1) There will be a family dance
and taco party on Saturday night,
2) Contestants will run in the
order drawn. If we have to wait on a contestant,
because they are up in the other arena we will
3) FORD TRUCK We want to thank
Fremont Motor Sheridan, Inc. for continuing to
provide a one year lease on a 3/4 ton, 4 wheel
drive, Crew Cab Ford truck. This truck is
again loaded with options such as a six speed
auto-select shift transmission and a 6.2 Liter
V-8 gas motor. This will be a 2012 Model. The contract
will be in the name of the winner’s parent or
guardian. Licenses, sales tax and insurance will
be the responsibility of the winner.
4) Prime Rate Motor - Jackson
Trailer Sales is again providing a trailer with
a third drop down feed door, an extra bus window
behind the horses and 6000 lb. torsion axles.
Sheet metal on the sides, roof and back door are
5) There will be a Jackpot Team
Roping at 6:00 pm and a Barrel and Flag Race
Jackpot 5:00 pm
on Friday, August 24th
. Everyone, including
contestants and families are welcome to
participate. If you have a new partner this is a
chance to meet and practice with them.
6) We plan to use calves for the
7) There will be a COWBOY CHURCH
SERVICE on Sunday at 6:30 a.m. in the Concession
Stand behind the Arena. It will be presented by
CARTER BENEDICT, muscian and cowboy preacher. He
is listed on the National Charts, so this should
be very good.
8) We want to thank our local
area contestants for hauling last year, however,
we are still running short on stalling at the
fairgrounds. We are AGAIN asking our local area
contestants to please haul each day if possible.
We will be assigning stalls on a first come,
first serve basis. If we run out of stalls we
will be assigning open pens and we will try to
assist you with stalling in the area. We are
also checking into portable stalling. Please get
your entries in early.
9) We make no distinction
between boys & girls. All events are open to
either. In our team events the team can be
Boy-Girl, Boy-Boy or Girl-Girl.
10) If you don’t have a partner,
we will try to match you up with one. On the
entry blank where you would put your partner’s
name write, "need one". In order to match up team
ropers we need to know if you head or heel. If
you have a preference, but are willing to do
either, we need to know. Intermediate team
ropers, if you can heel we need to know. We are
always short on heelers. For ribbon ropers
needing partners, we need to know if you are the
roper or runner and if you are willing to do
11) It takes over 70 volunteers
to put on this show. Some of the best and most
knowledgeable help is our contestant’s parents
and family. If you are willing to help this
year, please put a note with the entry forms
letting us know where you would prefer to help.
We may not need to use everyone, but it would
sure be nice to know who is available when
someone gets ill or does not show up.
