22 Thursday, September 25, 1997 Pahrump Valley Gazette 1997 Rodeo Club queen contest by Patti Babcock The Pahrump Valley High School Rodeo Club will hold a contest to select its first rodeo queen. The winner will be eligible to enter the State Rodeo Queen contest. The state winners vie for the National Rodeo Queen title. Contest Coordinator Stephanie Jones held a manda- tory meeting of all the contestants at her home Monday, September 22. Jones told the contestants and their parents the contest will be conducted adhering strictly to the state guidelines. One of the requirements of the winner is to have her National High School Rodeo Association membership card before she can ride in the Grand Entry. The member- ship is $75 which includes insurance coverage for rodeo events. One mother's response to this news was, "I guess we need to call Grandma." Most of the girls running for rodeo queen also ride for the rodeo team where association membership is required. Carded or not, all of the contestants have good horseman- ship skills. One portion of the contest will test these skills. The contestants will be required to perform figure eights, slide stops and serpenting on their own horses. Each contestant will then draw for a horse, the pool is all the contestants' mounts, and demonstrate her horsemanship skills on an unfamiliar horse. The three judges will look closely at horsemanship because the rodeo queen will represent the club by riding in the Grand Entry at every high school rodeo. The contestants appeared to be more worried about the essay portion of the contest. Each one will have to write an essay describing the difference between a Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) cowboy and a work- ing ranch cowboy. She will be required to recite her essay from memory in front of the judges. In addition, the judges will conduct a personal inter- view with each of the queen contestants where the girls will discuss their goals and other relevant topics. The first Nevada State High School Rodeo (NSHSR) of the season will be held this weekend, September 26-27, in Ely. The club hopes they will be represented by their fast queen when the second rodeo is held in Mesquite on November 1-2. The contest date will be selected as soon as Jones meets with the Rodeo Committee to confirm a date when the group can use the arena. Jones says she hopes the contest can be held before the end of October. Jones says every contestant will be a winner since each will gain poise and self-confidence by participating in the contest. She also hopes to have enough sponsors to provide each contestant with a prize. Following the contest, Jones and her husband Randy will host a barbeque for everyone involved. Contest sponsors are needed. All businesses and indi- viduals who want to support the rodeo club queen contest can contact Jones at 727-3421.
