Hoskins Memorial Roping By Tammy Hoskins Special To Ropers Sports News KING CITY, CALIF. – The 17th Annual Doyle W. Hoskins Memorial Team Roping and 15th Annual Barrel Race were held July 10th & 11th at the Sa- linas Valley Fairgrounds. After putting on the Doyle W. Hoskins Memorial for 17 years you would think it would be easy and simple, but we are usually completely ex- hausted by the end. Don’t get me wrong, we are happy to do it in memory of a great man. We love being able to celebrate Doyle’s life this way. He was so passionate about roping, riding, family, friends, and life. The roping on Saturday ran amazingly thanks to our effi- cient office crew! Toni Mach- ado, Cory Couch, and Jenni- fer Cardoza you are amazing. Thank you to Larry Branco and Buck Cardoza for flag- ging all day, you guys did a fantastic job. The roping takes a lot of manpower to keep it going, a special thanks to Dustin Thompson aka Wee- man, Jessica Jolley, CJ DeFor- Winners from the 17th Annual Doyle Hoskins Memorial Roping are left to right: Adrian Macias, Bronc Boehnlein, Blair Brown, Hank Brown, Stoney Boy Joseph, Darrick Hoskins presenting, Josh Mendonsa, Dan Engler and Katelyn Browder. – Deb Mann Photo est, Bronc Boehnlein, Frankie Eubanks, Sabby Pemberton, Jamie Gomes, Macias family, Berryessa family, Vince Nino, Clayton Clark, and Rose Es- cobar.
