I hope everyone is enjoying this hot, dry summer and that the heat isn’t stopping you from get- ting out and enjoying our beauti- ful trails! We are looking for- ward to the Fund Ride August 4th to 6th and hope to see you there. We will have a report on the Fund Ride in the next issue. The board is still looking for pro-

Warkworth Rodeo By Ross Millar.

They say a picture is worth 1,000 words. These pic- tures show that Rodeo Manage- ment Group and the RAM Rodeo is enjoying a record year playing to packed crowds at the first 4 rodeos of the year. Warkworth hosted their 16th annual rodeo July 8-9 and it was no exception.

The rodeo was filled and the dance attendance was great. The Warkworth rodeo was put on by the Percy Agricultural Fairboard for their first time. Previously for the past 15 years the Travellers mens hockey team of Warkworth hosted the event. The passing of the torch went very smoothly. The small town of Warkworth filled the rodeo stands and hockey arena for the dance making it a com-

plete weekend.

The rodeo saw great action with Myles Hugh- ston and Rod Weese tying for 1st place in the saddle bronc. Bareback was captured by Robert Ball while Bull riding was won by Brandon Moore. Roping was extremely competitive as Jarrod Nooren had a stun-

ning 8.0 second Tie down rope. Team Roping saw hometown favourite Trevor Dunk team up with Jere- my McCullough while break a way winner was Patsy McMahon. Barrels was won by Natalie with Brooke Gray winning Jr. Barrels. Jr Bull riding saw Bryce Shaw have a tremendous ride to take honours.

jects for grants, if you know of work that needs to be done in your area please let us know. We are also looking for Regional Representatives, those interested in becoming a regional rep can contact Karen Plume or any member of the board. If you are thinking of volunteering but are worried about what it will entail,

why not call or email one of our existing regional reps and talk to them about what they do. Final- ly, please note that the ride in Mattawa has been cancelled at the end of August. Enjoy the summer and ride safe!
