Ropin' Dreams Ranch Rodeo Winners
The Y Bar Ranch took top honors at the Ropin’ Dreams Ranch Rodeo, and Gilbert Gonzales, Team Captain captured the Top Hand award.  Second place went to the South Texas Cattle Marketing team and M&M Cattle was awarded  third place.  All the action took place at the Comal County Fair Grounds in New Braunfels on November 14, 2009.




The Ropin’ Dreams Ranch Rodeo is the final qualifier for the South Texas Ranch Rodeo Finals that will be held on  February 21, 2010 at the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo.  It came down to this final event for the teams to qualify  and the grit and determination was evident at the rodeo.



This is also the only fund raiser that Ropin’ Dreams holds each year.  Ropin’ Dreams is a 501(c)3 children’s charity  that was founded in 2002.  Their goal is summed up by the mission statement: “We are dedicated to bringing a day of  smiles to the child who faces daily challenges due to serious illness or injury.”  They focus on children from rural  agricultural backgrounds or children who are excited about the western heritage.



The main focus of the group is to give the child a “day of smiles” and remove them for a while from the challenges that  the child is currently facing.  Be it a day at Sea World or a Spurs Basketball game or going to the Stock Show and  Rodeo, the 100% volunteer board is happy to assist.



In addition to the individual dreams, Ropin’ Dreams invites 25 families to attend the San Antonio Stock Show and  Rodeo.   This year on February 7, 2010; 25 children will hang out at the Chuck Wagons, meet PRCA Cowboys and  then attend the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo.
