Rodeo Bucks Through an Eventful Weekend Across America

 Petry prepares for new job while having big weekend

          Rodeo Leigh Buckin Legs Hi 4 inch 72Darrell Petry had quite a week, both inside and outside the rodeo arena.

            The 44-year-old Texan was just elected the steer wrestling representative for the PRCA’s Contestant Executive Council (his two-year term starts Tuesday) and he had one of his best competition weekends in a long time.

            “It’s exciting, and it’s a new adventure in which I get to see the inner workings of the PRCA and to try to make some changes where we need it and leave certain things the same,” Petry said of being elected as the steer wrestling rep. “To have my fellow cowboys vote me into that position because they think I’ll do a good job was the greatest honor for me.”

Petry also got busy in the arena, as he won the Nacogdoches (Texas) Pro Rodeo & Steer Show with a time of 3.6 seconds, and then finished second at the YMBL Championship Rodeo in Beaumont, Texas, with a 3.9-second run. Petry, a resident of Beaumont, was happy to perform well there.

“It felt good, and I told one of my friends that it had been a long time since I had placed in two rodeos in the same weekend,” he said. “It was nice to start feeling like my old self again.”

Petry earned a total of $2,829, almost as much as he had earned all season prior to this weekend ($3,242). His win in Nacogdoches was his second of the 2014 season, as he won in Mercedes, Texas, on March 15. Before those victories, Petry’s last win came at the Ogden (Utah) Pioneer Days Rodeo in July of 2011.

He says the reason for the long break in between wins was the birth of his daughter, London, in February 2012.

“I wanted to be around her and didn’t want to miss those ‘firsts’ because that’s something I could never get back,” Petry said of watching his daughter grow up. “I got to see her start walking and talking, and I made my mind up that I wasn’t going to rodeo much because I wanted to be with her.”

After finishing 91st in the 2012 world standings and 79th last season, Petry moved to 46th after this weekend, and is hoping to make a run at his first Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.

“I still have the itch to get there, and I feel like the horse I have right now can sure get me there,” Petry said of his nine-year-old horse, HD. “He’s more of a young man’s horse, but I feel like a young man. My plan is to go to a lot of rodeos this summer to compete and to also talk to a lot of people as the steer wrestling rep. I want to do as good of a job as I can in both areas.”

 

   The majority of PRCA action this weekend took place at four Texas rodeos, where cowboys crisscrossed the Lone Star State in an attempt to improve their spot in the standings as the spring run kicked off.

  • Saddle bronc rider Cody Wright found quite a bit of success in Texas. The two-time world champion won the ABC ProRodeo in Lubbock on the strength of an 85-point ride on Beutler & Son Rodeo Company’s Painted Desert, and then finished second in Beaumont and fifth in Nacogdoches. Wright made a total of $3,337 at the three rodeos to extend his lead in the Windham Weaponry High Performance PRCA World Standings to more than $15,000 over his nearest pursuer. Another saddle bronc rider who had a notable weekend was Heith DeMoss, who beat Wright for the title in Beaumont and tied with Sterling Crawley for the win in Nacogdoches. The $3,137 DeMoss earned moved him up to 14th from the 18th spot where he started the week. Crawley tied for the win in Nacogdoches with DeMoss and was eighth in Beaumont for a total of $1,259.
  • Canadian Luke Creasy – who currently resides in Lubbock, Texas – won the bareback riding there with an 83-point ride on Beutler & Son Rodeo Company’s Super Man, tied for second in Beaumont and finished third in Nacogdoches for a total of $2,995. Creasy entered the weekend 14th in the world standings and moved to 10th as he looks to rebound from a 2013 season which saw him miss several months due to injury. Another bareback rider making waves is 22-year-old Bill Tutor. The Huntsville, Texas, cowboy held his place in the standings with a win in Beaumont and a sixth place result in Nacogdoches for total earnings of $1,974; he entered the week eighth in the world.
  • Bull riding rookie Sage Kimzey shared the win in Nacogdoches with Taylor Toves and tied for eighth in Beaumont to increase his world standings lead by $1,313. Kimzey rode Lancaster & Pickett Pro Rodeo’s No. J00 for 86 points, while Toves covered Lancaster & Pickett Pro Rodeo’s Dirty Martini for the same score.
  • Trell Etbauer – who hadn’t earned a check at a PRCA rodeo this season until this weekend – finally got his Linderman Award defense under way, placing seventh in the tie-down roping in Lubbock ($421) and earning steer wrestling checks in both Lubbock (fourth place, $586) and at the Young County Rodeo in Graham, Texas (tie for the win, $806).
  • Something old, something new, something green: A couple of former world champion team ropers found success with new partners over the March 28-30 weekend, with seven-timer Jake Barnes winning the Cave Creek (Ariz.) Fiesta Days Rodeo with Junior Nogueira of Brazil in 5.3 seconds, and two-time gold buckle winner Patrick Smith pairing with Kaleb Driggers to share the title at the Young County Rodeo in Graham, Texas, with D.J. Smith and Kyle Crick.
  • The other cowboys who collected checks at more than one of the four Texas rodeos, without a win, were tie-down roper Tyson Durfey (Nacogdoches and Graham), saddle bronc rider Ty Kirkland (Nacogdoches and Beaumont) and tie-down roper Catfish Brown (Beaumont and Graham).

 

2. Rick Chatman, May 1, 1956-March 27, 2014    

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Rick Chatman, the 1984 World Champion Bullfighter and PRCA Clown of the Year, died of an apparent heart attack on March 27, two weeks before his induction into the Texas Rodeo Cowboy Hall of Fame. He was 57.

A saddle bronc rider in high school, Chatman started his career in professional rodeo by working on saddles for M.L. Leddy during the week and fighting bulls at the Northside Coliseum in Fort Worth on the weekends, learning the skills that would make him one of the sport’s best.

In his nearly 30 years as a PRCA card holder (1979-2008), Chatman worked most of the sport’s biggest rodeos, including Denver, Fort Worth, San Antonio, Houston and Cheyenne, Wyo., often wearing a black and yellow shirt that earned him the nickname “Bumble Bee.”

He served three times as a bullfighter at the National Finals Rodeo in Oklahoma City (1980-81, 1984) and was twice an NFR alternate (1982, 1988).

In 1984, Chatman won seven of nine matches on the Wrangler Bullfighting Tour and won the world championship in the final round of four at the NFR when he got past Harry Vold’s Crooked Nose, the only fighting bull ever inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame.

Chatman’s achievement of winning the World Bullfighting title, the PRCA Clown of the Year Award and working the NFR, all in the same year, has never been matched.

“I’ve always liked to do something everybody else won’t do,” Chatman said in an interview with the ProRodeo Sports News. “I like the gamble. Besides that, the bullfighter always took home a check.”

            In a television interview (www.youtube.com/watch?v=jVHkjN0o5Xg), Chatman described bullfighting as “better than fun ever thought about being. If there’s a definition for fun, it’s what I do.”

A memorial service is scheduled for 6 p.m. April 6 in the Johnson County Sheriff’s Posse Arena in Cleburne, Texas, and everyone is welcome. For further information call 817.991.0156 or 817.991.3080.

He is survived by his two sons, Cassidy, of Burleson, Texas, and Chance, of Denton, Texas; his father, Buddy Chatman and stepmother, LaDonna, of Lindale, Texas; sister, Dionne (Jerry) Kitchens of Arlington, Texas; and ex-wife, Sheila Chatman, of Burleson, Texas.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund, 101 Pro Rodeo Drive, Colorado Springs, CO 80919.

 

3. Eldon Evans, April 26, 1930-March 26, 2014   

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Eldon Evans, a former top executive of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and an inductee in the ProRodeo Hall of Fame, died March 26 at St. Alphonsus Medical Center in Boise, Idaho, after a long struggle with heart disease. He was 83.

A certified public accountant by profession, he first served as a financial advisor to the PRCA in 1981 and went on to play a pivotal role during the reorganization of the association in 1987, when the PRCA was preparing to hire its first commissioner.

Evans served on the steering committee that year with Shawn Davis, Bob Thain and Harry Vold, was an interim co-commissioner with Thain and ended 1987 by being recognized as PRCA Rodeo Man of the Year.

He also served on the PRCA Board of Directors from 1988-96.

Evans, a veteran of the Korean War, was a founding father of the College of Southern Idaho in Twin Falls and served on the board of trustees for 12 years. A multi-purpose arena on campus is named the Eldon Evans Expo Center.

In 1965, he was named Man of the Year by the Twin Falls Chamber of Commerce.

Evans always said his father threatened him with his life if he ever became a rodeo cowboy. And while he never competed in the arena, Evans did become a true friend of the sport.

He gave countless hours to the PRCA for more than 20 years. His wise counsel helped guide the association through turbulent years. His peers knew he always kept the best interests of the rodeo business at the top of his priorities.

Evans was inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame as a Rodeo Notable in 1997, the year after he retired from the PRCA board of directors.

The memorial service is scheduled for 1 p.m. April 5 at the LDS Chapel, 723 Hankins Road, Twin Falls, with the funeral at Sunset Memorial Park.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests a contribution to the Delores Evans Memorial Scholarship through the CSI Foundation, P.O. Box 1238, Twin Falls, ID 83303.
