2012 Ropes & Goats ends second season

“Solio Deo Gloria” has been the theme of Ropes and Goats since its inception in 2011, which means “To God we give the glory.”

Five contestants’ names were drawn to recite the Bible verse of the day: Shantell Brewer, Mikenzy Miller, Jess Harper, Tayla Thorstenson and Kailyn Groves. The verse was Lamentations 3:25-26: “The LORD is good to those who depend on him, to those who search for him. So it is good to wait quietly for salvation from the LORD.”

The sixth and final Ropes & Goats of the 2012 season ended with a feeling of total community involvement. It would be impossible to name everyone who pitched in to help.

The resolve to give the young goat tyers and breakaway ropers experience was accomplished. Those who participated showed significant improvement.

Notice from the results that the Open Girls Breakaway ropers meant business: There were 13 times less than 3.75 seconds.
