Tyler Cattle Barons’ Gala | Tyler, TX | 6/11

The first Tyler Cattle Barons’ Gala was held in 1988. While much was known about this disease, much more was not.

To date, over $16.5 million dollars has been raised locally to support both local and national cancer support services including cancer research. Without the help and local support of past contributors, this would not have been accomplished. For that, we thank you and appreciate your support now and in the future. As we embark on this journey, we are anxious to meet new supporters who will help us and the ACS combat cancer.

On behalf of the 2022 Cattle Barons’ Committee, we hope you will join us on June 11th, 2022 at the wonderful facilities of Texas Rose Horse Park for the Gala we have planned for you. Enjoy an evening of wonderful food, mainstream entertainment, our gaming tables, live and silent auctions, and so much more. All who attend will enjoy their evening!

Cancer does not discriminate, and never will. Someday, we hope that cancer will be eradicated and, together with your support, we can all do our part. We also celebrate survivors, who possibly wouldn’t be here today were it not for the actions of the American Cancer Society. While cancer is still ever present today, positive steps forward have been made and more will come, and for that, we thank you.

National Junior High Finals Rodeo | Perry, GA | 6/19 – 6/25

Like most amazing inventions and developments, the National High School Rodeo Association began as a simple, logical idea which over the course of a few short years, took shape into something quite incredible.

The effort that would eventually become the NHSRA was the brainchild of Claude Mullins, a Texas educator who was a big fan of the sport, and an even bigger fan of the youth he worked with almost every day. Mullins grew up around horses and cattle and sports of all different kinds during the 1920’s. In the 1930’s, small rodeos began to spring up in the area and he became an instant fan.

Today, Claude Mullins’ dream has evolved into an organization that probably could not have been foreseen when he first saw those young boys innocently practicing their roping skills so many years ago. Mullins passed away in 1990. Yet his legacy of support for youth, and his love of rodeo, continues to have a dramatic difference in the lives of over 10,500 students in the United States, Canada, and Australia. And what was once a national finals that featured 121 entries has now grown into a National High School Finals Rodeo that features over 1,500 students on a regular basis and has become known as the “World’s Largest Rodeo.”

The creation of the Junior High Division in 2004 helped bring the excitement, mentorship, and thrills of rodeo to a new generation of junior high school students. And with each passing year, the Association continues to build upon its legacy of promoting the sport, while also supporting and preparing the future leaders of our society.

Will Rogers Range Riders | Amarillo, TX | 6/30 – 7/2

On July 4, 1938, the city of Amarillo commemorated the opening of the Will rogers Memorial Highway US 66. So later that year, when a group of businessmen in the city decided to form a riding club, a place where they could gather and enjoy a common interest – horses – it was decided to call the club the Will Rogers Range Riders.

Will Rogers Range Riders celebrates its 76th anniversary this year. Although none of the original members are still active, many of the current members have been in the club for more than 20 years, and the traditions that were set forth in 1938 are still upheld.
