  SIERRAVILLE, CALIF. – We made it through our 15th annual Steve Maddalena Memorial Roping August 6-7 with a total of 669 teams on the weekend. We were up against a World Series roping in Winnemucca, and numerous other competing events that seem to give folks more and more options, so we opened up for an add-on open draw pot at the end of the day on Saturday to get folks to the fantastic tri-tip dinner by the Loyalton FFA. Everyone in attendance had a great time, and we had a lot of newcomers who said they’ll be back next year.
  Cody Stewart and Logan Anseth were this year’s winners of the Steve Maddalena Memorial buckles with a time of 27.49 on 4 with their handicap for $474 per man and buckles.
Shelby Dunning and Dan Williams Sr. were the winners of the #8 Pick 1/Draw 2 Elliott Dow Memorial on Sunday with a time of 20.63 on 3 with their handicap for $748 per man and buckles donated by Megan Huber.
  This year’s High Money Header was awarded to Cody Stewart, with total winnings of $1,209. Jake Young, Jr. was awarded High Money Heeler, with total winnings of $1,399 for the weekend. The #10 and add-on Open Draw did not count towards the high money awards, and Cody chose not to pay for a free run in the #8 Hdcp. Draw, which only paid him half the money and none of those winnings counted towards the awards. That cost him the overall high money and choice of prizes, and Jake chose the 22-250 rifle, leaving Cody with the 6.5 Creedmoor for his prize.
