Chase Williams remains calm for Pendleton win

PENDLETON, Ore. – Chase Williams didn’t lose any sleep the night before he competed in the short round at the Pendleton Round-Up.

Not because he wasn’t nervous about entering the finals with the lead – no, it was a matter of all that travel catching up with him.

“I slept real good (Sept. 16) – I was tired because I’ve been all over the place,” he said with a laugh. “I was excited coming into the short round though. Any time you’re high call, you just have to put together a solid run and you’re going to get a good check. I was a little bit nervous, but Brent Lewis came over and told me I didn’t need any luck, and to just go be a cowboy. I was good to go after that.”

Good, indeed.

The 25-year-old tie-down roper from Stephenville, Texas, won the three-head average with a time of 28.3 seconds. He was second in the second round, and split second in the short go en route to the title.

Williams, who entered the weekend 30th in the WEATHER GUARD® PRCA World Standings, earned a total of $12,150.

He moved to 23rd in the Sept. 19 standings, but still has quite a bit of ground to make up in the final two weeks of the regular season to make it into the top 15 and qualify for his first Wrangler National Finals Rodeo presented by Polaris RANGER.

“I think there’s enough time to make a run at it,” Williams said. “I’m at least going to give ‘em hell and scare the guys in front of me a little bit. I’m entered in Amarillo (Texas), Stephenville (Texas), Apache (Okla.) and Pasadena (Texas), so I still have four shots left.”

Williams remained calm under pressure Sept. 17, even though he knew it was essentially a must-win.

“I knew that this was my last large bullet, and I had to win really big here to have any chance,” he said. “It’s not the best chance, but it’s better than a lot of guys have. Since July I’ve had a really good couple of months, and it’s helped out my confidence a lot and made me feel a lot better about next year.”

While some ropers have issues navigating the unique grass infield at the Pendleton Round-Up, that wasn’t the case for Williams. He and his mount were familiar with the setup.

“Last year I rode one of Troy Pruitt’s horses, Tank, and was able to make it to the short go, but the calf got up,” Williams said. “I rode the horse again this year, and he worked so good that it felt like we were on dirt. I just roped normal.”

Williams couldn’t stop smiling during his victory lap, which signified the biggest win of his four-year PRCA career.

“This is an amazing feeling; I’ve wanted to win a rodeo like this my whole life,” he said. “It was awesome, and hard to put into words.”

Other winners at the $515,665 rodeo were all-around cowboy Shane Erickson ($3,496 in tie-down roping and team roping), bareback rider Tim O’Connell (172 points on two head), steer wrestler Nick Guy (15.9 seconds on three head), team ropers Ryan Reed and Dalton Pearce (19.5 seconds on three head), saddle bronc rider Jesse Wright (170.5 points on two head), steer roper Ryan Rochlitz (42.4 seconds on three head), barrel racer Stevi Hillman (59.36 seconds on two runs) and bull rider Sage Kimzey (169.5 points on two head).

Wright is the fourth member of his family to win the Pendleton Round-Up saddle bronc riding title. His twin brother, Jake, won the rodeo in 2013, while older brother Cody took the title in 2010 and younger brother Spencer won it last year.

 

Brown captures big Albuquerque victory

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Bareback rider Jake Brown may have missed more than three months of rodeo action, but there was no rust to be found when he returned the weekend of Sept. 17-18.

The Cleveland, Texas, cowboy – who had been out since early June with a right (riding) thumb injury – won the New Mexico State Fair & Rodeo Sept. 18, just 24 hours after he was victorious at the Rose City Roundup in Tyler, Texas.

“It’s great to win in Tyler, and Albuquerque,” said Brown, 26. “I cracked back out this week and I just wanted to get my rhythm going again. I felt good, and was able to ride good and win a bunch of money.”

Brown had an 86.5-point ride on Cervi Championship Rodeo’s Rockstar by Vitalix to capture the victory at Tingley Coliseum in the Land of Enchantment.

He made his ride in Albuquerque Sept. 17, and when the rodeo concluded a day later, he earned $4,583. Brown added $1,929 for his winning 86-point ride on Stace Smith Pro Rodeos’ Cactus Black in Tyler, and he also earned $1,479 for placing second at the Four States Fair & Rodeo (Sept. 15-17) in Texarkana, Ark.

“I had never ridden that horse,” Brown said of Rockstar by Vitalix. “That horse has been around for a while, and it worked out really well. The horse was leaping and kicking and she felt really good. After the whistle, she kind of slammed me and almost stepped on me. It looked cool for the crowd, and fortunately I didn’t get hurt.”

The welcome-back performances helped Brown assure his second-straight trip to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo presented by Polaris RANGER. Brown moved up one spot to eighth in the Sept. 19 WEATHER GUARD® PRCA World Standings with $76,154.

“It’s awesome to solidify my spot at the NFR again,” said Brown, who finished a career-best eighth in the world standings a year ago. “Last year, I put a little pressure on myself and I didn’t have the best Finals, and this year I want to ride like it’s just another rodeo.”

Brown, who was leading the June 6 world standings, suffered ligament damage in his thumb at the Jasper (Texas) Lions Benefit Rodeo (May 11-14). He had surgery to repair it on June 16, and hadn’t seen rodeo action since the June 11 Wrangler Champions Challenge presented by Justin Boots in Kissimmee, Fla.

Was Brown worried he might fall out of the top 15 while being sidelined?

“For a little bit,” Brown said. “Then after a while, I felt safe and I just worked on coming back.”

Other winners at the $154,466 rodeo were all-around cowboy Seth Hall ($2,327 in tie-down roping and team roping), steer wrestlers Joshua Clark and J.D. Struxness (3.7 seconds each), team ropers Paul David Tierney/Cesar de la Cruz, Tee Luttrell/Clay Sieber and Chase Massengill/Daylan Frost (5.6 seconds each), saddle bronc rider Jake Wright (83 points on The Cervi Brothers’ On Fire), tie-down ropers Ryan Jarrett and Cody McCartney (7.7 seconds each), barrel racer Taylor Langdon (14.97 seconds) and bull riders Joe Frost (84 points on 4L & Diamond S Rodeo’s Bad Wine), and Cody Teel (84 points on Salt River Rodeo’s Silence Reigns 84 points).

  • Will McBride won the average title at the Mountain States Steer Roping Circuit Finals Sept. 18 in Douglas, Wyo. The 51-year-old native of Ogallala, Neb., was the only man to rope all five steers, and did so in 80.4 seconds. McBride also placed second in the second round, and earned a total of $3,920. It was his second MSSRCF average title, as he also won the event in 2005.
  • Contract personnel named for WNFR and NFSR

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The contract personnel for the Dec. 1-10 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo presented by Polaris RANGER and the Nov. 11-12 Clem McSpadden National Finals Steer Roping have been announced, and the lists feature some familiar names.

For the fourth straight year, the trio of announcers for the WNFR remains the same. Boyd Polhamus of Brenham, Texas, Randy Corley of Silverdale, Wash., and Wayne Brooks of Lampasas, Texas, will be on the microphone for the 10 nights in Las Vegas. It marks the 18th consecutive year Polhamus will announce the WNFR, and his 21st overall. It’s Corley’s 16th WNFR appearance, and the sixth of Brooks’ career.

Livestock superintendent John Barnes of Sutherland, Iowa, makes his 11th consecutive WNFR appearance, and is joined by chute bosses Tony Amaral of Marysville, Calif. (timed event) and Tom Neuens of Powell, Wyo. (roughstock). Ryan Brown of Ft. Laramie, Wyo., is the assistant livestock superintendent, while Benje Bendele of Dublin, Texas, is the music director.

Sunni Deb Backstrom of Congress, Ariz., is the WNFR secretary, which marks the 11th year in a row she has been selected, and the 14th overall. Amanda Corley Sanders of Pagosa Springs, Colo., is the assistant secretary.

Timer Jayme Pemberton of Terrell, Texas, is making her inaugural WNFR trip, and is joined by Jessi Franzen of Riverton, Wyo. (third straight year) and Amy Muller of Agar, S.D., who’s making her second trip in a row. Vickie Shireman of Elk City, Okla., is the office manager.

On the NFSR side, Charlie Throckmorton of Grandview, Texas, and Curt Robinson of Pendleton, Ore., will handle the announcing duties.

Throckmorton has announced the Clem McSpadden National Finals Steer Roping 16 times in a row, 17 times overall – second only to legendary rodeo announcer McSpadden himself (27 times and 17 in a row). Robinson makes his 12th appearance at the NFSR, and first since 1995.

Chute boss John Gwatney of Marquez, Texas, is back for his seventh consecutive trip, while usher Jeff Rector of Kansas City, Mo., and secretary Darla Kelley of Kansas City, Mo., each make their first appearance.

Timer Mary Brunner of Bergheim, Texas, makes her fifth trip, and first since 2008, and is joined by Bonnie Cusimano, who makes her first appearance at the NFSR. Jill Franzen Loden of Weatherford, Texas, is back as the music director for the second time.

 

WNFR bubble update

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – With just 12 days left in the 2016 regular season, every cowboy is jockeying for position to end up in the top 15 and qualify for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo presented by Polaris RANGER.

Here are some of men who made their move this past weekend:

  • After earning three checks in Pendleton, Guy Allen’s dream of returning to the Clem McSpadden National Finals Steer Roping for the first time since 2008, is a little bit closer to reality. Allen, who turned 56 earlier this month, moved up from 15th to 12th place in the WEATHER GUARD® PRCA World Standings and is looking to extend his record for most NFSR qualifications to 34. Brent Lewis won a round outright, and shared another round win to earn $8,669 in Pendleton and move within $1,819 of JoJo LeMond for the 15th and final qualifying spot in the NFSR.
  • And then there were six: Jesse Wright’s big win in Pendleton was worth $10,014 and bounced him from 18th to 11th in the saddle bronc riding world standings, while his nephew, Ryder Wright, advanced from 17th to 13th, forcing Tyrell Smith and two-time World Champion Taos Muncy out of the top 15. Muncy has been battling a strained left groin since initially injuring it at the Aug. 16-20 Caldwell (Idaho) Night Rodeo. There are now six members of the Wright clan of Milford, Utah, in position to reach the Wrangler NFR Dec. 1-10, with Ryder joining older brother, Rusty, and Jesse joining his brothers Jake and Cody, and brother-in-law, CoBurn Bradshaw. If this holds up, Cody, Rusty and Ryder will become the third set of father and two sons to qualify for the National Finals in the same year.
  • Billy Bugenig can take a big deep breath today. Fourteenth in the world standings entering the week and just $1,664 ahead of two-time World Champion Dean Gorsuch in 16th, Bugenig earned checks totaling $6,370 in Pendleton, Ore.; Albuquerque, N.M., and Abilene, Texas, to move up to 11th. Trevor Knowles kept his hold on the 15th spot in the standings with checks in Pendleton and St. George, Utah, but remains just $1,962 ahead of 16th-place Gorsuch.
  • Teddy Athan’s bid for a first Wrangler NFR berth in the bareback riding suffered a blow despite a win at the Sheriff’s PRCA Rodeo in San Bernardino, Calif., that paid him $1,774. Texan Richmond Champion pushed Athan down to 16th place in the world standings by earning three checks in Pendleton – including a sixth-place result in the average – and another in St. George, Utah, for finishing in a tie for fifth place. Bill Tutor, in the 17th spot, moved to within $400 of Athan with checks in Abilene, Texas; Tyler, Texas, and Texarkana, Ark.
  • There were two changes in the tie-down roping top 15, with Blane Cox and J.C. Malone supplanting WNFR veterans Adam Gray and Tyson Durfey (a total of 12 qualifications between them). Malone made the biggest jump, from 21st to 15th by tying for fifth in the average in Pendleton, finishing fourth in Albuquerque, N.M., and winning the rodeo in San Bernardino, Calif., with a 7.8-second run. Cox went from 16th to 13th by finishing fourth in the Pendleton average and winning another check in Abilene, Texas.
  • 2011 World Champion Bull Rider Shane Proctor had a win in Harrison, Ark., and Bayle Worden had one of his own in Tyler, Texas, effectively canceling each other out and remaining 15th and 16th in the world standings, respectively. Proctor widened his lead slightly, to $6,272.
  • The only change in the team roping standings came on the heading side, where Billy Bob Brown moved up from 16th to 14th on the strength of a tie for second place in St. George, Utah, and a seventh-place finish in Albuquerque, N.M. Dustin Egusquiza slid to 16th place, $829 behind Zac Small in 15th.
  • News & Notes from the rodeo trail

Commotion, one of the greatest bucking horses of all time, passed away on Sept. 7 at the Beutler & Son ranch near Elk City, Okla. He was 25. Commotion, a 1,300-pound bay stallion who stood at 16.1 hands, was voted the top bareback horse at his first Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in 1997. He went on to win the next three Bareback Riding Horse of the Year awards, 1998-2000, when he was part of the Beutler and Gaylord Rodeo Company string. He made 10 consecutive trips (1997-2006) to the WNFR before retiring in his prime at the 2006 WNFR at the age of 15. Two rounds were won on him at the WNFR … ProRodeoLive will be airing live coverage of the Sept. 23-25 Cowboy Capital of the World PRCA Rodeo in Stephenville, Texas. The Sept. 23-24 performances begin at 7 p.m. (CT), with the final perf airing at 2 p.m. Sept. 25, at www.prorodeolive.com

 

Doug Turner, a former PRCA tie-down roper, passed away Sept. 8 at Salinas (Calif.) Valley Memorial Hospital. He was 54. Turner joined the PRCA in 1987 and competed many years in the Sierra (now California) Circuit. He was born Sept. 25, 1961, in San Luis Obispo, where he lived for many years, before returning to Salinas. Online condolences may be made at www.struveandlaporte.com

 

Bareback rider R.C. Landingham will miss the remainder of the PRCA regular season, which concludes Sept. 30, with a left knee injury. “I was riding in the short round at Pendleton (Sept. 17) and I smashed my knee between my horse and the pick-up men,” Landingham said. “I think my meniscus has a tear in it. I took a 10-day (doctor release, through Sept. 28), just to see how it feels, but it’s not really getting any better, so I’m probably going to get it looked at it in the next day or two in Redding, (Calif.).” Landingham, who has qualified for the WNFR for the first time this season, is fifth in the Sept. 19 WEATHER GUARD® PRCA World Standings with $104,678.

 

The St. Paul (Ore.) Rodeo started its “Beyond the Boots” night and fundraising activities in 2011, and since then it has generated nearly $90,000 for the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund. The 2016 donation was $21,493. St. Paul Rodeo designates an entire performance to raise funds and awareness for the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund and the Justin Sportsmedicine Team. In addition to those funds, the rodeo held a live auction at its Hall of Fame Barbecue and a drawing at its trail ride. All of the tips from the famous Tack Room Saloon are also donated to JCCF.

 

Marty Barnes, owner of Barnes Rodeo, was recently inducted into the Iowa High School Rodeo Association Hall of Fame. Barnes was presented a plaque during the Moville High School Rodeo in recognition of his achievements within the sport of rodeo on all levels. Barnes competed in the IHSRA from 1976-79. He was also a member of the Iowa State University rodeo team from 1981-84 … Former PRCA saddle bronc rider Cody Angland is now the Saddle Bronc Riding Director for the Australian Professional Rodeo Association. Angland finished in the top 25 of the PRCA world standings in 2011-12.

 

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

“It’s a dream come true, and I’ve wanted one of these buckles for a long time. This is truly one of the best rodeos you can win, because of all the stuff they give you, and because they appreciate you. It’s one of the toughest places to win because of the elements, and I’m going to be proud wearing the buckle.”

-Shane Erickson, who won the all-around title at the Pendleton Round-Up,

explaining to radio host Butch Thurman what the victory meant.

ELITE RODEO ATHLETES MAKE CHANGES

 

RANDY BERNARD SERVING AS CONSULTANT

 

Press release from ERA
Sept. 17, 2016

 

In an effort to continue to deliver the best rodeo product in the world to its fans, Elite Rodeo Athletes (ERA) announces changes to its 2016 tour.

 

These changes were made with the help of well-known Western industry pioneer and veteran, Randy Bernard, who is now serving as the group’s ERA consultant. Bernard, who has been a friend of ERA since its inception said, “I am for anything that is for the betterment of rodeo.  I believe it is the one sport that still hasn’t seen its full potential and the ERA has the right idea of showcasing the best talent in the sport. We have decided to enact a few changes that will help us reach our goals and deliver a better product to our fans.”

 

The 2016 ERA World Championships will be held at the American Airlines Center in Dallas as planned, but there will now be three performances on November 11,12 and 13 only. “We have adjusted our Championship to make it more fan friendly, and also to allow us to do something exciting that fans have been asking for,” said ERA Athlete Bobby Mote. ERA has slated to make a more detailed announcement next week on RFD-TV.

 

Fans who have already purchased tickets to the Wednesday, November 9 and Thursday, November 10 performances, whether individually, or in a set, will be contacted and issued a refund automatically. All ticketing fees (except UPS and retail pickup fees) will be refunded. If you purchased tickets at a retail location, please return the tickets to the same location. Ticket holders with questions can call Ticketmaster directly at 800-653-8000. The November 11-13 performances are not affected. ERA ticket holders that have been inconvenienced by this change will receive exclusive opportunities during the finals as a thank you for their support.

 

More details about the Championship will be released in the coming weeks. To purchase tickets, book hotel rooms and learn more about Dallas, fans can go to ticketmaster.com or visit ERArodeo.com.

 

No changes have been made to the ERA Qualifying Series in Mesquite. The finals will take place October 1-2 at the legendary Mesquite Championship Arena. The top two athletes in each event will progress to the American Airlines Center to compete against ERA tour athletes in the 2016 ERA World Championship.

 

Planning for the 2017 ERA Tour is under way. Bernard says that one change fans will notice is that some ERA athletes will relinquish their stock in the ERA so that they can compete anywhere they want. “It is ERA’s first priority to take care of its cowboys, sponsors and fans.  We want the best rodeo athletes to showcase their talent everywhere.  When there is an ERA event we want fans to know that the best in the world are guaranteed to be at each performance. Whether the athletes own stock or not, it does not change their commitment to the ERA,” said Bernard.

 

ERA plans on releasing the 2017 tour schedule later this year. For more information about ERA, visit ERArodeo.com or follow ERA on its social media channels (Twitter: @ERARodeo, Facebook: ERA Rodeo, Instagram: @erarodeo).

O’Connell keeps rolling at Puyallup

PUYALLUP, Wash. – This has been a dream season for bareback rider Tim O’Connell.

The Marshall, Mo., resident didn’t come back to reality Sept. 11.

O’Connell won the Justin Boots Playoffs at the Washington State Fair and Rodeo with a score of 249 points to win the three-head average.

“I’ve been to this (the Justin Boots Playoffs in Puyallup) twice, and I had never made it to the final four,” said O’Connell, 24. “This is a very big win. It’s definitely right up there as one of the biggest wins of my year. The Playoffs have the top 24 guys in the world competing against each other, and that’s a big accomplishment to knock this off my bucket list.”

O’Connell, who has won 13 rodeos outright this season, increased his lead in the Sept. 12 WEATHER GUARD® PRCA World Standings to more than $25,000 over second-place Orin Larsen. The $5,922 he earned in Puyallup brought O’Connell’s season total to $161,756.

O’Connell clinched the average title with an 83-point ride on Growney Brothers Rodeo’s Sacred Nation in the finals. He edged Teddy Athan by one point in the average.

“I’ve never even heard of that horse before,” O’Connell said. “It can work out both ways if you don’t know a horse, and it worked out pretty good for me.”

Although O’Connell’s ride wasn’t tops in the finals – that honor went to Jessy Davis, who had an 86-point ride on Calgary Stampede’s Saturn Rocket – it was perfect for him at that moment.

“She came out and hit really hard and hit me in the back and made me stand up on my spurs, and then she started setting up and getting really flashy,” O’Connell said. “When she hit me like that it got me pretty far ahead of her, so I was able to show off and get things rolling right away and finish the ride just as strong as I started it.”

Before the regular season concludes Sept. 30, O’Connell will compete in five more rodeos, and he doesn’t plan on letting up at all.

“I want to finish strong,” O’Connell said. “Then I’m going to get back into my workout program with my trainers at home. I want to be ready to rock for 10 days at the NFR.”

O’Connell is headed to his third-consecutive Wrangler National Finals Rodeo presented by Polaris RANGER. He finished a career-best fourth in the world standings a year ago.

Other winners at the $272,829 rodeo were steer wrestler Dakota Eldridge (13.5 seconds on three head), team ropers Kaleb Driggers and Junior Nogueira (21.3 seconds on three head), saddle bronc rider Zeke Thurston (249 points on three head), tie-down roper Cory Solomon (28.5 seconds on three head), barrel racer Ivy Conrado (44.34 seconds on three runs) and bull rider Jeff Askey (238.5 points on three).

  • Solomon remained red-hot in his pursuit for his first gold buckle. The 26-year-old earned nearly $4,000 in Puyallup, and then picked up a victory at the second-biggest rodeo of the weekend – the Lewiston (Idaho) Roundup. His 8.1-second run there added another $4,376 to his bank account, and allowed Solomon to move to fifth in the world. In previous weeks, the Prairie View, Texas, native picked up huge wins in San Juan Capistrano, Calif., and at the Wrangler Champions Challenge presented by Justin Boots in Pueblo, Colo. This year will mark his fourth WNFR trip (2011-12, 2015).
  • Steer wrestler J.D. Struxness also continued his strong push toward the top of the world standings over the weekend with a pair of wins. The 21-year-old from Appleton, Minn., had already punched his ticket to his first WNFR, but wins in Lewiston and at the Tri-State Rodeo in Fort Madison, Iowa, helped him move to fifth in the world. Struxness, the 2015 PRCA/Resistol Rookie of the Year, posted a time of 3.4 seconds in Lewiston, good for $3,434, and a 3.5 in Fort Madison equaled another $2,902. Struxness nearly cut the deficit between himself and first-place Ty Erickson in half, and trails by less than $12,000.
  • There was only one change at the top of the world standings, as team roping heeler Junior Nogueira used a big weekend to overtake Paul Eaves. Nogueira and partner Kaleb Driggers not only won the Justin Boots Playoffs, they also tied for fourth in Lewiston. The total haul of $12,342 for both men over the weekend has given Nogueira a lead of more than $11,000 over Eaves, while Driggers remained first in the header standings with a lead of more than $9,000 over second-place Luke Brown.
  • Doc Etienne, May 19, 1924 – Sept. 10, 2016

Myron “Doc” Etienne, who was inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame in 2001 in the notables category, passed away Sept. 10. He was 92.

Etienne was also inducted into the California Rodeo Salinas Hall of Fame in 2010.

Born May 19, 1924, in Pasadena, Calif., he served more than 40 years on the California Rodeo Salinas board, and was a past president. That involvement led to his service on the Rodeo Advisory Committee since its inception.

He also was part of the PRCA Rodeo Information Foundation, and was a founding member and the first president of the Animal Welfare Council. He was a strong force in making the PRCA the leader in dealing proactively with animal welfare issues, and was extremely dedicated to the welfare of rodeo animals and the rodeo industry.

Shortly after high school, Etienne joined the Merchant Marines. After five years at sea, he enrolled in college and graduated with a law degree. He was recognized as one of the best trial lawyers in the Central Coast region in California.

 

News & Notes from the rodeo trail

The Wrangler Network will stream live coverage of the Pendleton (Ore.) Round-Up Sept. 16-17, with coverage beginning at 1:15 p.m. (PT) both days. Fans can log on to www.wranglernetwork.com to watch … ProRodeoLive.com will be airing all four performances from Pendleton Sept. 14-17, with coverage beginning at 1 p.m. (PT) each day.

 

PRCA Gold Card roper Myrl Goodwin, a tie-down roper in his youth who later took up steer roping, died Sept. 10 in Canyon, Texas. He was 79. Goodwin won the Pendleton (Ore.) Round-Up and Cheyenne (Wyo.) Frontier Days steer roping titles during his PRCA career. He finished second in the College National Finals Rodeo tie-down roping in 1959, and third in 1962. Since 2000, the National Finals Steer Roping’s Second Go-Round Award has been presented by Goodwin in honor of his son, Colby. Colby Goodwin incurred fatal injuries during the second round of his third NFSR in 1999, when his horse rolled over on him.

 

Buff Douthitt, a former tie-down roper in the Cowboys Turtle Association and a specialty act, passed away Sept. 4. He was 91. Douthitt had a PRCA roping specialty act beginning in 1951, and was active up until 1970. Douthitt set a record at the Boston Garden in calf roping that lasted for 20 years, and also had a three-year stint in the Marines. His wife of 60 years, Jane, was a PRCA secretary. Douthitt was inducted into the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City in 2001.

 

Norman Dorenkamp, part of the legendary Dorenkamp rodeo family, died Sept. 4 at his home in Holly, Colo., after a long battle with cancer. He was 73. Dorenkamp, the brother of Fred Dorenkamp – who owned Dorenkamp Rodeo Company from 1950-93 with his wife, Norma – was a PRCA member and competed as a steer wrestler from 1965 until the mid-1970s. Services were held Sept. 10 at the St. Frances of Rome Catholic Church in Holly, Colo.

 

Rob Golding, longtime leader of real estate company Live Oak-Gottesman, has been named CEO of Rodeo Austin, replacing Bucky Lamb. The Rodeo Austin board selected Golding from a pool of 140-plus candidates, said Eddie Ledesma, Rodeo Austin board president. “Rob’s long-standing reputation of leadership was exciting to the Rodeo Austin board,” Ledesma said. “Rob brings the vision we need to project Rodeo Austin to the next level in our community.”

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

“The guys that were already entered in the bull riding, guys that knew what they were doing, they offered me their ropes and spurs, since they knew they were going to get my money. I got on a bull in the second session, and I didn’t even make it to the end of the gate. He threw me off, pulled my shirt off and made me mad.”

-Lecile Harris, who’s been a PRCA clown for six decades, describing the first

time he entered a bull riding as an 18-year-old to the Dalton (Ga.) Daily

☛ ERA Premier Tour stops in Sheridan, Wyo. 9-9-16

Posted by on Sep 9, 2016 in RODEO & BULLRIDING NEWS | 0 comments

ERA PREMIER TOUR STOPS IN SHERIDAN, WYO

 

ONE-DAY RODEO FEATURED DOUBLE POINTS AND $200,000 PURSE

 

Press release from ERA
Sept. 9, 2016

Elite Rodeo Athletes Premier Tour (Stop #11) in Sheridan, Wyoming turned up the heat on Sept. 3 as the top rodeo athletes in the world competed for their share of $200,000 in a single performance. The Cowboy State Elite Rodeo not only featured double the prize money (usually won on an ERA tour stop), but awarded athletes double points, giving athletes a way to change their position in the standings at a critical point in the ERA season.

“The double everything (points and money) is awesome, I mean who doesn’t like $7,500. The double points for dang sure will help with the standings and come Dallas hopefully we are close,” said ERA Saddle Bronc Rider, Zeke Thurston. Thurston (Big Valley, Alberta) has been on a roll in the Saddle Bronc Riding stacking up wins including Calgary and the ERA Days of 47, and now he can add Sheridan to the list. A beautiful ride on Spider from Bailey Pro Rodeos, gave him a score of 88 points and the win. During a post ride interview, Thurston said, “I didn’t know much about her (Spider), but she’s pretty cool and got a little wild at the end really jumping and leaping in the air, which looks good and was a blast.”

ERA Saddle Bronc Rider, Isaac Diaz (Desdemona, TX) has made the whistle at each of the eleven tour stops this year, placing no lower than sixth place. This level of consistency has put him at the top of the ERA World Championship leaderboard, a place he has occupied for most of the year. However, Cort Scheer’s (Elsmere, NE) second place finish in Sheridan puts him only 62.5 points behind Diaz making this a close race to watch.

A rare three-way-tie happened in the Bull Riding; when Neil Holmes, Wesley Silcox and Beau Hill all scored 83.5 points on bulls from Sankey Pro Rodeo. The win ensured that Holmes (Houston, TX) hung onto his top spot on the ERA World Championship leaderboard, but Hill (Columbia Falls, MT) is only a mere 25 points behind him.

After being sidelined for nine months with injuries, World Champion, Wesley Silcox (Santaquin, UT), showed the crowd that he is back.  While discussing the win he said, “It felt pretty good to have the opportunity to ride at my first ERA after being out for so long. Getting the win and being healthy made it that much better.”

Another tie for first happened in the steer wrestling when Casey Martin (Sulpher, LA) and Jake Rinehart (Highmore, SD) threw their steers in 3.88 seconds. Despite losing everything in the recent flooding in Louisiana, Tyler Pearson (Independence, LA) came out with a fourth place finish and was able to pull ahead of Stockton Graves (Alva, OK) by 87.5 points in the ERA World Championship standings.

A 4.78-second win by Three-Time World Champion Team Ropers, Clay Tryan (Plentywood, MT) and Jade Corkill (Fallon, NV) was not enough to upset Derrick Begay and Seven-Time World Champion, Clay O’Brien Cooper’s ERA World Championship standings lead, which they have held for most of the ERA tour. However, the extra points in Sheridan pulled Tryan and Corkill within striking distance with only 50 points separating the teams.

A first-time ERA win happened for Kassidy Dennison (Tohatchi, NM) and her horse, Eagle, who took to the big outdoor arena (the only outdoor arena on the ERA tour) and stopped the clock at 17.39 seconds.   “Eagle’s favorite thing to do is run outside in outdoor pens and it was an awesome run today,” exclaimed Dennison minutes after being named the champion. Placing behind her with a second place finish was Lisa Lockhart (Oelrichs, SD) on her horse Louie and third place went to eleven-year old Chayni Chamberlain (Stephenville, TX) on Flo Jo. Lockhart continues to lead the World Standings race with Chamberlain right behind her.

 

World Champion Tie-Down Roper, Caleb Smidt, (Bellville, TX) clinched his second ERA tour win with an 8.22 second time. Placing second was World Champion, Shane Hanchey, (Sulpher, LA) who stopped the clock with an 8.36 and held onto his number-one spot in the ERA World Championship standings.

The final event of the night saw a leaderboard change in a tight race for the ERA Bareback Riding World Championship. An 86.5-point win by Steven Dent (Mullen, NE) on Blessed Assurance (J-J Rodeo) and a second place finish by Kaycee Feild (Spanish Fork, UT) gave them enough points to push past Four-Time World Champion, Bobby Mote, who now sits third in the world standings. Dent now leads the race.

The Cowboy State Elite Rodeo will be the final ERA tour stop before the 2016 ERA World Championship in Dallas that will take place in November.  The final three tour stops (St. Louis, Atlanta and New Orleans) have been canceled in an effort to maintain the excellence fans experience at ERA events and to ensure the long-term success of the ERA. Dates for the 2017 rodeo season will be announced soon and will include partnerships with well-known rodeos across the country.

No changes have been made to the ERA Qualifying Series in Mesquite. Those events will proceed as scheduled. The Semi Finals are currently underway and the ERA Qualifying Finals will take place Oct. 1-2. The top two athletes in each event will compete against the ERA Tour Athletes at the World Championship in Dallas.

Gray surges with timely Ellensburg win

ELLENSBURG, Wash. – Tie-down roper Adam Gray has a new perspective about being on the bubble when the rodeo schedule turns to September.

His fresh outlook led to a gigantic win at the Sept. 2-5 Ellensburg Rodeo.

Gray won the three-head average title with a time of 26.8 seconds, earning a victory lap and checks totaling $6,458. He entered the weekend 21st in the WEATHER GUARD® PRCA World Standings, and his haul moved him all the way up to 15th.

“In the past, being in this position in September had me biting my fingernails and stressed out way too much,” Gray said. “Now, I’m completely over that. I’m just trying to have fun, and that seems to be working better than biting my fingernails.”

The 32-year-old from Seymour, Texas, has been to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo presented by Polaris RANGER four times (2009, 2011-12, 2014), but missed the cut last season when he finished 17th in the world.

He was the high call back in the Sept. 5 short round, and knew he only had to beat 10.1 seconds to win the average title.

Announcer Justin McKee laid the pressure on thick when Gray was backing into the box, letting him and the crowd know it was a must-win situation.

“My heart was racing a bit,” Gray said. “Not that I didn’t know all that stuff already, but it was nice of Justin to put the pressure on me. I try to tune it out, but there’s always things you hear in the box. But once I nod, I don’t hear anything.”

Gray’s 9.2-second run in the short round was more than enough to clinch the average title. However, he knows this is just the first step in what must be a big September run.

“It was a must-win if I wanted to make the Finals; I knew that,” he said. “I was 28th when I came to the Northwest, and didn’t think I had a realistic chance to make it. I’ve been winning a bit lately, so now I have a chance. But none of it matters if I don’t keep it up. Winning has made it fun again, and hopefully it works out and I make the Finals.”

The 2012 WNFR average champion isn’t sweating this late-season run on the bubble, and isn’t concerned about finishing outside the top 15 like he did in 2015.

“Last year is in the past, and was a totally different set of circumstances,” Gray said. “I’m worried about roping at Lewiston (Ore.) and Puyallup (Wash.) this week, so that’s what I’m focused on. But it goes without saying that I’d rather be at the NFR than watching it on TV.”

Other winners at the $327,183 rodeo were all-around cowboy JoJo LeMond ($2,630 in team roping and steer roping), bareback rider Teddy Athan (164.5 points on two head), steer wrestler Baylor Roche (14.4 seconds on three head), team ropers Erich Rogers and Cory Petska (18.3 seconds on three head), saddle bronc rider Cody DeMoss (168.5 points on two head), barrel racer Nellie Miller (51.92 seconds on three runs), steer roper John Bland (27.0 seconds on two head) and bull rider Tyler Smith (163.5 points on two head).

  • Bareback rider Tim O’Connell, the guy at the top of the WEATHER GUARD® PRCA World Standings, continued his season of victory laps. The Zwingle, Iowa, cowboy won at Palestine, Ill., and Pine City, Minn., and now has at least a share of 16 PRCA rodeo titles this calendar year. Canada’s Orin Larsen, sitting second in the standings, also had a nice week with a win at the Pueblo (Colo.) Wrangler Champions Challenge and earnings of $3,892 at the IPE & Stampede in Armstrong, B.C.
  • Tie-down roper Matt Shiozawa, feeling a bit vulnerable at the No. 13 spot in the world standings, improved his position a great deal with four wins over the weekend. The eight-time WNFR qualifier picked up victories at the IPE & Stampede in Armstrong, B.C., the Nicola Valley Pro Rodeo in Merritt, B.C., the Evanston (Wyo.) Cowboy Days and the Walla Walla (Wash.) Frontier Days. While he only moved up two spots to 11th in the Sept. 6 world standings, Shiozawa now has a cushion of more than $10,000 between himself and 16th-place Tyson Durfey.
  • Another rodeo veteran who greatly improved his shot at a WNFR bid is saddle bronc rider Cody DeMoss. The 11-time WNFR qualifier won the Ellensburg Rodeo, and also collected victories in Plains and Dillon, Mont. The big weekend moved DeMoss from 18th to 13th in the world, giving him a great chance at his 12th trip to Las Vegas.
  • There are three changes at the top of the world standings – all on the timed-event side. The team roping has new leaders on both sides, as Kaleb Driggers now holds a $1,187 lead in the heading standings over second-place Clay Smith, and Paul Eaves, Smith’s partner, overtook Junior Nogueira – who ropes with Driggers – by a mere $102 in the heeling standings. A big weekend for tie-down roper Marcos Costa has him in the top spot, holding a $9,351 lead over previous leader Timber Moore.
  • Rorey Maier takes crown at Xtreme Bulls Finale

ELLENSBURG, Wash. – There was no wiping the smile off the face of Rorey Maier as he took his victory lap around the arena.

The ride in the back of the RAM truck Sept. 3 was the culmination of the biggest night in the 28-year-old bull rider’s career.

Maier, of Timber Lake, S.D., won the Xtreme Bulls Tour Finale with a two-head average score of 174.5 points. It was the first Division 1 Xtreme Bulls win of his career.

“I picked a good time to win my first one,” he said. “I’ve been second and third a lot this year, so to win here in Ellensburg is the real deal. This is the one everybody wants to win. I’ve tried to not put pressure on myself, and stay relaxed and focused on the process of riding bulls, and I knew it would work out eventually.”

He finished third in the long round with a score of 86 points on Corey & Lange Rodeo’s Comatose, and then won the short go with an 88.5-point trip on Four Star Rodeo’s The Bachelor – just edging out Jordan Spears, who had an 88 and finished a half-point behind Maier for the average title.

The $25,944 Maier earned vaulted him from 14th in the Xtreme Bulls season standings to the Xtreme Bulls year-end champion.

“It means a lot to me to be the year-end champion,” Maier said. “I realized about halfway through this season that I was doing pretty well in the Xtreme Bulls standings, and I made it a priority to win at these.”

More importantly, however, the huge haul should clinch Maier a spot in his first Wrangler National Finals Rodeo presented by Polaris RANGER this December. He entered the weekend 18th in the WEATHER GUARD® PRCA World Standings, and shot all the way up to eighth with $90,226.

“It’s the feeling I’ve wanted to have for a long time,” he said. “But I’m not counting my chickens, because it’s not over yet. I want to keep winning and moving up toward winning a world championship. That’s what I’ve always wanted, and now I have a real chance to be in that position.”

It was a monumental night for Maier, whose best previous finish of his nine-year PRCA career was 26th in 2013. He finished 85th in 2015.

Maier was one of four men to ride for eight seconds in the 12-man short round – a round which included four of the top five bull riders in the world.

“It’s awesome, because I got to see my brother (Ardie) have a great ride before I went,” Rorey said. “To win against the top guys is why we do this – to try to be the best. I knew I was capable of it, and tonight, it was great to prove it. It’s been a long time coming.”

Dallee Mason finished third in the average, behind Rorey Maier and Spears. Rorey’s older brother, Ardie, finished fourth.

Spears entered the weekend 13th in the world standings, but the $20,492 he earned moved him up to fourth, assuring him a spot at the WNFR. It will be his second appearance in Las Vegas, and first since 2014.

 

Jacobs Crawley captures Pueblo WCC event

PUEBLO, Colo. – Sometimes after a gold buckle season, the next year can be a struggle.

That hasn’t been the case for 2015 World Champion Saddle Bronc Rider Jacobs Crawley.

Crawley has been riding a tidal wave of momentum all year, and that continued at the Wrangler Champions Challenge presented by Justin Boots Aug. 31.

Crawley, of Team ProRodeo Hall of Fame, had an 87.5-point ride on Harry Vold Rodeo’s Happy Valley to claim the WCC title.

“I’ve been on that horse a couple of times and I’ve never cracked 80,” Crawley said. “It was nice to get a ride like this. It felt good. She got me on one jump just because she is strong, but luckily I was able to get back in position and finished with a really strong ride until the whistle.”

Crawley earned $3,944 for his performance in Pueblo, and remained first in the Sept. 6 WEATHER GUARD® PRCA World Standings, with $157,853.

“This year has been great,” Crawley said. “I’ve been able to stay healthy for the most part, and that’s important. I have a little brother (Sterling) who is trying to get back to the NFR this year, and he’s been the driving force as far as not letting up any because he’s still on the bubble. We’re staying out there hard at it, and we’re not going to quit until October 1.”

The PRCA regular season concludes Sept. 30. Sterling, who qualified for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo presented by Polaris RANGER in 2012-13, is 10th in the Sept. 6 world standings. Sterling won the Colorado State Fair & Rodeo Aug. 30 in Pueblo with an 84.5-point ride on Silver Creek Rodeo’s Broken Kettle.

This was Jacobs Crawley’s first WCC event win this season, and the third of his career. He has victories at Amarillo, Texas (Sept. 17, 2014), Kissimmee, Fla. (Oct. 3, 2015), and now Pueblo.

“These Wrangler Champions Challenge events are big,” Jacobs said. “You have the best horses from several stock contractors and you’re going against the best guys. It makes you step your riding level up. You’re only as good as your competition, and it definitely pushes a guy to be his best. I also enjoy the team concept of these events. We get to pull for different guys at the rodeo, and it’s kind of cool.”

Other winners at the $92,800 rodeo were bareback rider Orin Larsen of Team Coors (88.5 points on Hi Lo Rodeo’s Wilson Sanchez), steer wrestler Josh Peek of Team Experience Kissimmee (3.6 seconds), team ropers Kolton Schmidt/Dakota Kirchenschlager of Team Experience Kissimmee (5.6 seconds), tie-down roper Cory Solomon of ProRodeo Gear (8.7 seconds), barrel racer Stevi Hillman of Team Experience Kissimmee (17.14 seconds) and bull rider Sage Kimzey of B&W Trailer Hitches (86.5 points on JK Rodeo’s Reaper).

Larsen’s score was a new WCC bareback riding record, breaking the mark of 88 points shared by Steven Peebles and Tim O’Connell.

Kimzey also increased his WCC all-time record win total to eight. He has won three WCC events in a row – at Cody, Wyo. (Aug. 14), Kennewick, Wash. (Aug. 23, a title he shared with Roscoe Jarboe) and Pueblo.

News & Notes from the rodeo trail

ProRodeoLive.com will be simulcasting Steve Kenyon’s announcing from the Spokane (Wash.) Interstate Fair and Rodeo Sept. 9-10 beginning at 7 p.m. (PT) both nights. Kenyon and Butch Knowles will live broadcast the finals of the Justin Boots Playoffs in Puyallup, Wash., at 1 p.m. (PT) Sept. 11.

 

Janis Anderson, who was inducted into the Ellensburg (Wash.) Rodeo Hall of Fame Sept. 1, passed away Sept. 3 as a result of complications from a stroke. She was 80. Anderson is the grandmother to Wrangler National Finals Rodeo team ropers and brothers Riley and Brady Minor. She was riding in the Ellensburg Rodeo Parade with the Rodeo Grandmas Sept. 3, and shortly after the parade concluded, Anderson suffered a major stroke. Anderson, Judy Golladay, Peggy Minor Hunt, Lorraine Plass and Chloe Weidenbach made up the Rodeo Grandmas, which were inducted into the Ellensburg Hall of Fame as a group.

 

The Sept. 2 performance of the Ellensburg Rodeo honored three veterans as part of Patriot Night. The three men, Lt. Col. Jack Powers, Col. Wes Corman and Lt. Col. Ben Hicks, all served in World War II, Korea and Vietnam. Hicks and Corman waved at the crowd as they went around the rodeo arena in a wagon, accompanied by their families. Powers was not able to attend.

 

The Ellensburg Rodeo also dedicated the Sept. 4 performance to Cliff Gage. Gage – who had attended every Ellensburg Rodeo – passed away in May, two weeks shy of his 101st birthday. He sat in the same spot every year – seat 1 in row A of section DD, right above the roping chutes. Gage, an Ellensburg native, also competed as a roper, bareback and saddle bronc rider, and bull rider at various points in his life.

 

Rodeo clown Justin Rumford channeled his days as a linebacker to subdue a rowdy trespasser Aug. 25 at the Range Days Rodeo in Rapid City, S.D. The 275-pound Rumford covered about 30 yards in a short amount of time to tackle 35-year-old Edward Mashburn – who was running around in the arena during the saddle bronc riding. Mashburn was dangerously close to the pickup men, a bucking horse and a rider in front of the bucking chutes. “Right then, I knew it was time,” Rumford said. “I only have two speeds on me – slow and rock and roll, baby. I got him right in the back, just like Clay Matthews. It was a clean hit, and I don’t think I would’ve been fined if I was in the NFL.” Mashburn, who admitted to being “pretty sore for about a week” after Rumford laid him out, also faces a disorderly conduct charge for his actions.

 

A special presentation was made to the Wright family at the Golden Spike Rodeo, Aug. 27, in Tremonton, Utah, for all the positive attention they have brought to their home state of Utah and the rodeo. Brothers Alex, Cody, Spencer, Jesse and Jake were honored, as well as Cody’s sons Ryder and Rusty – who was unable to attend because of a severe left leg injury – and their brother-in-law CoBurn Bradshaw. “This was a great opportunity to honor them and how they represent our state, and also the industry and the saddle bronc riding event,” said Brent Rose, committee chairman of the Golden Spike Rodeo. Rose said the Wrights and Bradshaw each received custom-engraved pocket knives. At the rodeo, Jesse Wright won the saddle bronc riding event with an 89-point ride on Bar T Rodeo’s Heart of Gold. Cody was third, Bradshaw was fourth, Spencer tied for fifth and Alex tied for eighth.

The Fort Madison (Iowa) Rodeo held its 16th annual Tri-State Special Kids Rodeo Sept. 3. This year, the 249 participants had something new to play with – a full size, animatronic bull with a fur coat and a living, breathing personality. “He’s just for picture taking, because of the mechanics inside him,” said Sharon Orton, assistant chair of the Special Kids Rodeo. “His eyes blink, his mouth opens and closes, and he moves. The sides go inside and out like he’s breathing, and his tail wags.” A dedication sign sat next to the bull with two names on it – Kenny Hartman and Chris Orton. Hartman died in April at the age of 93, and was a Tri-State Rodeo aficionado. Chris was Sharon Orton’s son. He died in April 2015 at the age of 39, due to a blood clot that entered his lung. The Tri-State Rodeo runs Sept. 8-10.

PAT JACOBS LEAVES US AT AGE 79

 

THE CUTTER, AUTHOR AND MUSICIAN PASSED AWAY MONDAY, AUG. 29

 

By Glory Ann Kurtz
Sept. 2, 2016

At 10 a.m. tomorrow, Sept. 3, a funeral will be held at the St. Joseph Church in Ashland, Kan., for Pat Jacobs, Burleson, Texas, an inductee into the NCHA Members Hall of Fame, an author of several books and a talented musician. He passed away at age 79 on Monday, Aug. 29.

 

Pat, who grew up in Kansas and throughout his life had a wonderful sense of humor, was a 40-year NCHA judge. He explained how cutting was in the early years when he was hauling for the Word Championship, in the entertaining book “Outcasts, Outlaws & Second Chance Horses,” a 2010 Will Rogers Medallion Award Winner. The Will Rogers Medallion Award is presented each year to those books that represent an Outstanding Achievement in the Publishing of Western Literature.

 

Noted novelist Tom McGuane explained the contents of this book, saying “For anyone wanting to know what cutting looked like when it still had the hide on, when it was still an outdoor sport, before it was an “industry” and before its roots in the range livestock industry were obscured, reading Pat Jacobs’ book is obligatory.

 

The good horses of bygone days, the long roads, bad food, sketchy lodging and extraordinary individuals come to life. It was unheard of to throw away of The Chatter and families were nearly banrupted by long distance phone calls dedicated to cutting horses and the mysterious electricity they created. Horses were not tools; they were colleagues of fellow artists.

 

This was high romance in some of the damndest places, fueled by often impractical true believers. It had the same DNA as the Wild West with its indeggerence to risk, career planning and the bottom line. There has never been anything like it in the realm of contest horses and Pat Jacobs has done a wonderful job recreating a world that so many of us miss.”

Next came “The Chameleon Rancher.” Even though the book is fiction, it was based on ranchers and big cattlemen that Jacobs knew, as well as colorful characters that old timers told him about. “

 

The story takes place in 1941 when the country had just come out of the Great Depression and the ole’ Dust Bowl era. Since Jacobs lived it, including riding cutting horses in a race for the World Championship of the National Cutting Horse Association, he used actual characters, with made-up names, from his huge bank of memories for this book. He has woven colorful individuals into a backdrop of actual events with fictional, yet believable, cowboys and ranchers, plus a dash of love, sex, drama and human frailties.

 

Pat Jacobs had an illustrious musical career.

His final book was “This Cowboy Is Off Bass,” depicting his early years as a musician, when he was inducted into three different halls of fame and was named a Hero of Western Music by the Cowtown society of Western Music in North Central Texas, for producing a historical album: The Oklahoma Swing Project.

 

One astonishing fact in that book was that Pat’s music career not only survived but blossomed, even though he admitted he could not read music – he played by ear.

 

On the cover of Pat’s latest book, well-known cartoonist Lex Graham, had drawn a picture of Pat and his wife, Nellie, with a horse and the note, “A couple of REAL characters.” The best part is, “It looks just like them!” Also, the Forward was written by Lex, explaining his hysterical personal experiences with Pat.

This book is one that when you start reading it, you can’t quit. But it’s easy to read in a day. It’s full of Pat’s lifetime musical experiences, as well as the history of Western Swing music, mixed in with a jillion laughs along the way. As far as I’m concerned, it’s a “must read” and a “must have” for your library.

 

About five years ago, he had to remove himself from the judges’ list and quit cutting because of severe macular degeneration. His eyesight got so bad he couldn’t see to drive or read a newspaper. Nellie also had eye problems and Pat would say, “Between the two of us, we only had one good eye.” He was accepted into a stem-cell trial a couple of years ago and went  into a surgical clinic in Dallas to have  stem cell implanted in his right eye. Pat said at the time that it was the first case study in Texas and the 12th in the United States. Pat says that so far the previous trials have shown great success and that this could be a breakthrough for hundreds of thousands of people

 

Just a few weeks ago, Pat was having a problem with one of his vocal chords and could barely talk.

 

To order “This Cowboy is Off Bass,” send $15.00 plus $3.00 for postage, for a total of $18.00, to Pat Jacobs, 2825 Brookhollow Dr., Burleson, Texas 76028. Your notes and orders could help Nellie through the upcoming months.
