Vaquero Days 2010 Report & Event Reminder

For those of you who were unable to make the recent Descanso Vaquero Days here is a report:

Garry McClintock and his people put on a wonderful event. Garry’s Saturday night campfire and feast was terrific. Hats off too to Pat and Deb Puckett and Enrique Loprena. Of particular interest was the large number of excellent Mexican ropers who competed.  And it was great to meet Luis, Grabriel, and the others from the remote Baja  village featured in Garry’s and Cody’s documentary,  Corazon Vaquero: A Journey into California’s Final Frontier. If you have not seen their video, it’s a must see. It was good to see our friend, Bruce Sandifer on the mend from his wreck in Alturas. He judged the event.

All of our club’s advanced open ropers were unable to attend Saturday and Sunday for a variety of reasons. However, a number of our novice ropers competed in the novice division and they all performed well. I am grateful that Gil Camarillo lined up Vic to rope with us as our open roper. We were the last up of 10 teams to compete and the only team to complete both cows. Bruce placed us first in the division.
