We have been having an annual party/barbeque to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and to say thanks to friends and family for putting up with us.

We started out shooting clay targets. The last count I had, there was 10 cases of targets out, and I am pretty sure they were all gone, by the time they all came in to eat. Eveyone at the party had received the memo that I WAS the COOK this year, so I am not real sure how many targets were used, but I do know that the empty shell casings filled a 30 gallon drum.

A shop full of people, and lots of food and neighbors to help serve it.

Anyone know the lady with her back to me?
After eating, we had our jackpot roping.

You ride the bale and rope the dummy. Makes for some good clean fun.

Mrs Flyin S gettin it done.
I used up all my good throws at a cow earlier in the day, so I missed the first throw, and it was a single elimination. We had 17 ropers, that paid anyway, and the winner ended up roping the dummy at about 35 feet out.

Looks like Soap should have had his spurs on to get that bale moving a little faster. :D


How come the calf looked farther away in Peaches picture? :wink: :lol: :lol:


Happy anniversary, looks like you had a great day. :D :D :D

We are newly weds. July 8th will be 5 years. We did our jackpot at our wedding too, and the preacher won it.

We had a bigger "horse" that day though.

Congratulations WP. Coming up on 31 for us in a few weeks.

I thought the same thing as Big Muddy about Soap. :lol:

It is surprising that the hat was still in its normal shape. As much as I was kicking that ol' hay bale, and as fast as we were traveling, the brim should have been strait up in front, plastered against the crown. :wink: The bale was running hard with its head low and its feet close to the ground. It was doing its best, chasing one dummy with another dummy on its back. :)
