Sitll no run today... But I will report on my roping PR. I went to Salado to the Wildfire Team Roping Finals entering in two events, the #12 and the #11. I placed in all both the Preliminary Ropings and both Finales. In the #12 Preliminary roping I won 2nd for a total of $ 1,120. This by itself would have been a great win but to top that off the win made me eligable for a Finale entry. In the Finale I won 2nd again for another $2,010 prize. I decided to enter the #11 Preliminary and ended up winning 1st in that roping. With that win I recieved a trophy buckle (pictured below) and another $ 2,164. Again I was able to enter the Finale for this roping and again placed high in the roping, 2nd, for another incredable $ 2,430 win. Total winnings for the day was $ 7,720. That's the biggest prize money I have ever won in a single day! Entries in the Preliminary ropings were about 140 and 150 respectfully and in the Finale ropings 50 and 60. Now for the BIG decision, these wins make me eligible for entries in World Series Team Roping Finals held in Las Vegas in December. I have never competed in a National Finals before. The entry fees are $ 2,000 each plus all the expenses to get there and back. I haven't decided if I'm going to do it yet but I am leaning toward going for it! Prizes there will be 10 times the amounts here but the compitition should not be any tougher. Well...that's my Roping Report for the weekend, I don't expect to top this one for a while....!
Here is the trophy buckle I was given for the #11 Preliminary win...!
As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning.
