While it may have been dusty, one thing is clear… we had an awesome weekend at NR Round Up for our Shannon Adams Memorial Roping.
 
We had a total of 770 breakaway, tie down and team roping runs over the weekend, and a lively Saturday night dinner & dance with an awesome band (Paul Wainwright & The Book Ends) to round out a beautiful weekend on the ranch under the stars, followed by an outstanding cowboy breakfast on the back lawn on the Sunday morning .
 
We put the spotlight on brand new ropers once again this year with our Green as Grass Breakaway Class (slower stock) and our Green as Grass Team Roping Class (where you partner a brand new roper with a seasoned volunteer to rope slower stock). We also had a really competitive tie down class, awesome ladies breakaway, incredible youth breakaway, open & open 3D breakaway and a really fun 3 Round Progressive Team Roping on the Sunday to finish off the weekend!
 
But for us, the most meaningful number of the weekend (and the one we are most proud of) is that WE RAISED *$7000* for the Juravinski Cancer Centre inmemory of Shannon Adams. Shannon was a shining light that lives on in her beautiful kids. We hope in some small way this money helps Juravinski to continue to advance the amazing work they do in the battle with cancer. This money raised came from a variety of places; every roper donated (in lieu of arena fees/ office fees), we held an awesome 2 day silent auction, and sold ballots for draw prizes. Additionally many people straight up donated to this great cause.
 
This entire event could not have happened without our INCREDIBLE sponsors always in our corner and the army of volunteers who made it happen through sweat, dust and smiles. Thank you to each one of you from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you to every roper who came and all who supported this weekend! Whether it was helping with timers, running the stripping chute, donating to the silent auction or problem solving wherever needed. 
 
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts! ♥️
