COTTONWOOD, CA – “Just waiting for some sunshine for this grass to grow,” has been the talk of the town in Northern California in recent months. Shasta County has gotten more than 40 inches of rain this season. With some luck, this could be the best grass year in California history. Less than three weeks before the 7th Annual Broc Cresta Memorial Roping, it seemed that number seven was not going to be so lucky. Snow covered the Four Star Ranch and eventually flooded the arena past the second row of sucker rod of the arena fence.
