Californio Ranch Ropers:
Howdy! Hope all is well in your neck of the woods.
Our spring roping was well attended at Reed Valley Ranch. Thanks again to Don and Janet for hosting us. Lots of good roping and learning was done. Thanks as usual to our veteran ropers: Elvin, Jim M., Ray, Jim W. and others for sharing their expertise with use.
A few incidents in the pens reminds us that there is always more to learn. It also reminds us to stay alert and never take what we do for granted.
I received word from Richard Caldwell that Fiesta Vaquero is a go for 2013. It will be held again in Alturas on August 3rd and 4th. Applications are being taken now. (See the website or Facebook for details.) If you have not attended, I urge you to check it out. It’s a fine event and there is room for all levels of expertise. The drive is well worth the time and effort. If anyone is interested in partnering up, let me know.
Our summer roping at Reed Valley Ranch has been confirmed. Mark your calendars for September 14th and 15th.
Hope to see you down the trail,
