"The 2017 Patriot Calf Roping exceeded all expectations. With the growth of our existing events from last year and the additions of the new WPRA Open Ladies Breakaway, 10 & Under Breakaway, All-Girl Tie-Down and Open American Qualifier, our numbers more than doubled from the 2016 Event and our payout reached over $86,000! The continued support of this astounding event provides much excitement for the 2018 Event. We are making changes to improve the experience and have listened, intently, to all feedback.
Each calendar year, The Patriot Event is the "kickoff" for the Rising Stars/Future Stars Calf Roping Season. Memorial Day Weekend at the Lazy E Arena will follow with the OE Future Stars Calf Roping. Then, Thanksgiving weekend we bring the OE Rising Stars Calf Roping to the Lazy E Arena. We invite everyone to come out to all three of these amazing event, and see what all the hype is about!
It has been such an honor to be a part of The Patriot Event Finale these past two years and we are thrilled at the response the calf roping community has shown. There is so much to look forward to in the years ahead and we cannot wait to see you all down the road!"
