Our FFA students continue with their success. This time in the calf scramble at the Ft. Worth Rodeo. Below is an account of the accomplishments written by our FFA sponsors Zach Tappan and Theresa Tindel:
This past Saturday at the Ft. Worth Rodeo Brady Tindel, Ethan Grimes, and Logan Grimes each competed in the Calf Scramble performance of the Rodeo. With an entertaining scramble and countless tails caught, hoofs hit, and halters thrown. Brady Tindel and Ethan Grimes were victorious in catching , haltering, and dragging their calves into the large Ft. Worth arena. By doing so these two were awarded a $500 cash value certificate to be used in the purchase of a registered show heifer for the 2010-2011 show season. Logan Grimes didn’t catch a calf but was awarded a free pair of Justin boots for his efforts.
These three will be competing again at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo giving them a chance for $1500 more to be used towards the purchase of their show heifer for the 2010-2011 show season.
