A great big thank you from myself, Heather and the board of directors of the KPRA. What a wonderful 2021 finals we had at Dodge City last weekend. Our weather was absolutely gorgeous which added to the excitement. Our stock could not of been any better, most all of the cattle from tiedown calves to break away and steer wrestling cattle were very even and could’ve placed on almost any of them. The team roping cattle were fresh every performance in both team ropings which made for a totally different roping. Rough stock was very good also. If anyone has not looked at the bull riding results you need to. We had a Bull Rider that won over $12,000 at the KPRA finals, not quite the NFR but not far from it😁We hired a new chute boss this year by the name of Cody Whitney, he was highly recommended and did an outstanding job. Jerry Casey was our Man in the Can again. Our Announcer was Monty Steve, he did an outstanding job start to finish from our openings until the last bull. Our performances could not of run off any smother! Jill Hudson was our secretary once again and did an outstanding job. Heather was very timely and prompt taking care of all of her secretarial duties. As a lot of you know we had a concert Saturday night after our performance, we was hoping for the best and oh boy did we get it. A great big thanks to Albert from Central Station that partnered with us on the concert. We had a one-man band after the performance for about an hour and got everyone warmed up. Shenandoah started playing at 11 o’clock and played until 1230. And you know Cowboys and rodeo fans they’re not done at 12:30. The one-man band come back and played until 2 o’clock and finally the party was over. I should say the party was over in the Arena. The 2022 finals have already been started with some new and exciting things to come. We created a few more committee awards this year to show our appreciation to the committees that worked so hard for us!!
I wish each and every contestant could compete at the finals but if you don’t make it in the top 12 come and enjoy the weekend with us next year!! ~ Happy Trails, Leon
