GCPRA Finals 2014

Well the end of the 2014 rodeo season for us is here. We all roll out to the GCPRA Finals this weekend looking to win some money. The GCPRA Finals in the past have been a blast, they have slowly built up to really awesome time and great finals. Its probably put on a as good as any rodeo I have been to. The line up for the contestants this year in the bareback riding is really the who’s who of bareback riders in Arizona and New Mexico. We have past turquoise circuit champs, this years champ, senior world champs, high school champions, Indian rodeo champions, we have guys here competing from the Northwest, MT, CA and CO. A full 15 guys entered in the bareback riding. All the riders got to pick the stock they want there. I have been part of this organization for a long time now and too see were these finals have gone and especially see all the guys that want to compete in it is awesome. I know our group is really looking forward to it, good added money, stock should be outstanding and the after rodeo events are always a blast. The finals are at the Avi Casino event center were they have been the last few years, we have stock coming from /M Rodeo Company, Salt River – V Heart Rodeo, Milo Dewitt and Honeycutt Rodeo. As a contestant nothing gets the blood running hot then to be indoors in nice facility, hearing gates slam, stock snorting, running in the chutes with there winter hair, a big crowd to ride in front of and know as a contestant we have probably the best pick up men around out in the arena. With Carter Williams, Tel Honeycut and Tanner Resor, all voted in by the contestants. Makes you run your hand in a little deeper knowing you have hands out there that will bust there butt to make sure you get put down safe and sound after each ride. For rough stock guys in Arizona and New Mexico it don’t get much better to be honest. At the end of it they give out go around buckles, jackets to all contestants, year end saddle and average buckle. Denise and St Lukes Lukes will be there to make sure take care of use and to keep us going. I know every bareback rider will be there for one reason and one reason only to spur down whatever they climb aboard and let the judges figure it out. I will post after the finals how everyone did or follow along on the Facebook page and Instagram. To the Arizona Widbunch heading that way, I hope we all draw deep and place deep in the money. See all of you there tonight, safe travels out to everyone heading that way from contestants, to stock contractors, Diamond K photography, announcers and all that are involved. Keep it between the mayonnaise and mustard. The count down has begun until the first chute gate is cracked. Loose rowl mafia.
