The day started with a team roping in the beautiful new Rafter C Indoor Arena. With over 400 teams signing up and vying for the cash and 20 buckles. The roping saw people who had not roped in years compete as everyone wanted to win a Carl Norris Memorial Buckle. Buckle winners included John Bell, Rob Goings, Bruce Corkilss, Stix Lee plus many, many more. I know that John and Rob have not been jackpotting in a while, but knowing Carl all of their lives, it was important to them to rope for him. The Carl Norris Memorial Open 4D Barrel Race (with no entry fees) was going on in the outdoor arena while the team roping was in the indoor arena. 100 entries vied for a chance to win the 20 buckles that were awarded. The Norris family made numerous trips to the Reno Airport to pick up additional family and friends who came to town for the event. I personally mounted five barrel racers on my horses (I only have three horses and two barrel racing saddles) and it was a struggle to accommodate everyone, but we got it done. Carl always told me to ride good minded and broke horses. Thank goodness my three horses are just that as my cousins had not run barrels in 10 years and they needed to be safe. Because of our love for Carl, we made it happen. Four of the riders won buckles and two won checks, what a great day and a greater memory!
