Sans: Local kids head to Challenge of Champions Rodeo

Wendy Sans

I hope you all had a nice and sweet Valentine’s Day and I certainly hope you didn’t forget your Valentine!
We sure had a nice shot of unexpected rain last weekend and into Monday. We had close to a half an inch at our place, as did Vern and Jo Ann Scattinil. It was a chilly storm but a much needed one.
Birthday wishes go out to Jean Schmidt who celebrated her birthday last weekend. She celebrated her birthday with a nice dinner at her home with family and friends.
The multidistrict high school rodeo that was held last weekend at the Salinas Valley Fairgrounds was a big success. Many local kids participated. It was the last rodeo qualifier for those in contention of competing at the Challenge of Champions Rodeo in March in Plymouth. Only the top three kids from each district and in each event are invited to compete at Challenge. Congratulations to all those who qualified to compete there this year. Blair Brown, Lacey Bourdet, Cheyenne Rey, Megan Ford and Taylor Hurley are some of the girls who qualified and Tommy Ford, Cash Robinson and Brody Sans are some of the boys who qualified.
Congratulations also go out to Cheyenne Rey and Taylor Hurley for tying for the Girls All-around Title at the King City multi, Tommy Ford who won the Bareback Riding title and to Brody Sans for winning the Bull Riding.
Next stop for the kids will be the Clovis multidistrict rodeo the first part of March, followed by the Challenge of Champions at the end of March. Congratulations and good luck to all!
Don’t forget to mark your calendars for the many up and coming events that will be taking place in a few weeks. The San Benito County Cattlewomen’s Association will be hosting their annual Pedro Party on Feb. 24 at the Tres Pinos Church Hall. It only costs $10 per person to play and there will be fabulous prizes, raffles and refreshments. The door prize will be a homemade afghan specially made by Margaret Prewett.
On March 31, the San Benito County Cattlemen will be hosting its 29th Annual Reverse Draw Dinner Dance at Bolado Park. The evening begins at 6 p.m. with dinner, followed by dancing and the reverse draw. Tickets are available at McAbee Feed, Ranchers Feed and from any Cattleman.
The Monterey County Cattlemen will be hosting its Spring Meeting and Ranch Rodeo on March 30 and 31. The rodeo should be done fairly early on Saturday so everyone should have plenty of time to participate in the rodeo, then head on over or back to Hollister for the Reverse Draw Dinner.
Have a great week and be sure to give me a call or e-mail me at [email protected] with any news you’d like to share.
