The annual Mother’s Day event at the Petal family ranch was another great success.

The Petal family would like to give a big cowboy handshake to everyone who helped out on Saturday, May 10, for branding for Uncle Clarence Petal and also our 14th anniversary Mother Day’s Timed Event on 1Sunday, May 11.

It all started out with a fun day of roping but with fundraising through bingos, raffle tickets, Loonie auction and various in-kind donations from local businesses around the Cariboo Chilcotin, rodeo friends and all the local members from Stone, Anaham and Redstone reserve that supported our monthly bingos fundraising which makes our yearly event bigger and bigger.

Many ropers like coming to our yearly event due to no barriers on all timed events and just coming out and having fun with their friends and family.

It is a fun full-filled day with many activities throughout the weekend –– the Lehal tournament in memory of our late Grandfather Henry Petal who was a true Lehal player, silent Loonie auction, and a $2,500 bingo.

We also gear towards having many kid’s riding events, where they can use their own horses or compete on a borrowed horse. The smile that we see on their faces is unbelievable as they are so happy.

We also had the honour of having many top competitors from the BCRA and other roping associations to rope with everyone and make friends.

A big thank you to all who helped inside and outside the arena and especially our cooks who cooked our meals and the free beef barbecue on Saturday and Sunday breakfast for everyone. Everyone loved Agnes’s bannock as everyone wanted to know her secret recipe.

The whole weekend was a very successful one and hope to see you all next year in 2015.

The family would like to say thank you to all the cowgirls, cowboys and volunteer helpers who have participated and hope to see you all at the next timed events in May of 2015.

We welcome you all to come out to our branding the day before and witness the real cowboy traditional style or just camp out and enjoy the weekend.

See next week’s Tribune for a list of the results from the Petal’s Timed Event Jackpot Roping.
