2011 Buckle Awards

2011 we got in contact with Gist Silversmiths about crafting some buckles for our arena.  We contacted them first since they have been doing rodeo buckles for years and we knew they did a great job.  We gave away a total of 12 buckles this year.  We want to thank Les Schwab Tires of Grants Pass for Sponsoring a buckle in June.  The winner for the June buckle was Norm Withiam.  Also, want to thank Vern Meyer of Farmers Feed featuring LMF Feed for Sponsorship of the August Sorting Buckle and it went to Mike Spees.  We gave one Ranch Sorting buckle away each month from June thru September.  There was also two Ranch Sorting/Versatility weekends, one in June and September which was a Hi Point Buckle to the Sorter and a buckle to the All Around Versatility winner for the weekend.  We gave a buckle each month to the High Point Team Roper.  Points were given toward the buckle at each practice when we were able to have a Round Robin or a Draw pot.
