This is a fun time for everyone. It is a golden opportunity to show off your Roping skills and also for cookers to showcase their fine culinary abilities.

Even if you don't do either of these, come on out as a spectator and have a lot of fun. June 26th, 27th, and 28th are dates to set aside and come to Lee Ranch for the big Roping and Cookoff.

Roping and cook-off competition will run throughout the event.

Saturday night the 27th, enjoy a big dance with Case Hardin.

Be sure to buy raffle tickets for a chance to win some great firearms and possibly a signed guitar from Aaron Watson.

Proceeds will benefit the West Texas Boys Ranch.

I had the opportunity to interview Wade Kirkwood, Program Director for the Boys Ranch and we talked about the above mentioned as well as other aspects of various activities like the categories in the cook-off competition. He also told us how to get registration information, gave us a comprehensive rundown of guns you can win in the raffle and a lot more. For an in depth overview, listen to the interview here.
