2010 Dick Stirling Memorial ranch rodeo September 26

Young and old, saddle up and get ready to ride for the 13th Annual Dick Stirling Memorial Ranch Rodeo to be held on Sunday, Sept. 26, 2010 at the Highmore Round-Up Arena in Highmore, SD.

Event registration begins at 9 a.m. (CDT), a contestants meeting at 9:45 a.m., a Calcutta of all registered teams starting at 10 a.m., with the event starting at 10:30 a.m. The cost for team registration is $100. There is a 50 percent payback in prize money and Calcutta.

This exciting and entertaining event is held annually in memory of Dick Stirling, a life-long South Dakota rancher, who lost his battle to lung cancer in October 1997. Because of his love of ranching, his wife and eight children continue this ranching tradition in an effort to raise money for individuals and families fighting cancer in local communities.

“We are gearing up for a wonderful celebration of fun and family for the 13th Annual Memorial Ranch Rodeo. We have been so fortunate to receive the support of the ranchers and ranching communities in our state that assist in our efforts to help raise funds for families who may be struggling with paying for transportation or lodging for treatment of this disease. We hope to reach even more individuals with the funds raised at this year’s event,” said the children of Dick Stirling.

This will be an exciting, fun-filled day with family at the Dick Stirling Memorial Ranch Rodeo. The competition consists of a four-person team and must have a member either 16-years-old or younger, or a woman. The competition events include: the trailer relay race, calf branding, range doctoring, and team sorting or double mugging.

One of the many highlights of the day will be the kids events. Little ones will have a chance to feed the grain, gather eggs, wild cow milking and dummy roping. There will be an all ages boot scramble and sack races to entertain one and all.

The Stirling family invites everyone to come and enjoy the fun, excitement, and laughter to help raise funds for families waging the battle against cancer.
