Gun­stock Ranch Hosts Women’s Rodeo Bar­rel Rac­ing, Rop­ing

MidWeek Islander (Windward Oahu) - - Windward Oahu Islander -

Rodeos will burst out of the pen in the next few weeks, with ac­tion in cor­rals from Laie to Waimanalo spon­sored by the Hawaii Women’s Rodeo As­so­ci­a­tion.

Gun­stock Ranch will host the Gun­stock Win­ter 4D (four di­vi­sions of bar­rel race and rop­ing) from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. this Satur­day at the ranch, lo­cated at 56-250 Kame­hameha Hwy. near Laie.

Reg­is­tra­tion for the com­pe­ti­tions starts at 9, fol­lowed by ex­hi­bi­tion runs, bar­rel rac­ing (all age cat­e­gories), girls break­away rop­ing, team rop­ing of three steers and in­di­vid­ual rop­ing.

Rodeo ad­mis­sion is free to the pub­lic. For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact Dreama Car­roll at nsranch- mom@gmail.com.

The HWRA also plans two fundrais­ing, gymkhana-like “fun days” in March for mem­bers and non­mem­bers — the first one at 10 a.m. March 2 at Di­a­mond J Ranch in Wa­ianae, and the sec­ond one at 10 a.m. March 30 at DK Ranch in Waimanalo. Both events fea­ture a va­ri­ety of fun races, such as rib­bon, ba­ton, match poles, key­hole, flag, egg-and-spoon, life­saver, sit-a-buck, rawhide, foxand-hound, boot and three­legged races.

Rib­bons will be awarded to the first six places, plus an all-around award for the high­est points.

The goal is to raise at least $10,000 this year in or­der to cover the All­Girls Rodeo costs and year-end awards.

For en­try fees and more in­for­ma­tion on HWRA, call 216-7555.
