Fundraisers in Sublette County (posted 8/16/16)
Raising money for worthy causes
We recently posted a new page on Pinedale Online to highlight fundraising efforts people are doing in Sublette County. We’ve added two new fundraisers going on until September

Walk to End Alzheimer’s – Sat. Sept. 10th The Walk to End Alzheimer’s will be on Saturday, September 10th in Marbleton ath the Big Piney/Marbleton Clinic. Participants are asked to get a team together and hold fundraising events prior to the Walk: bake sales, car washes, head shavings, raffles, etc. Then on the day of the Walk, teams are encouraged to dress outrageously ready to turn heads. There will be a prize for the most money raised, and another for the most outrageous team. Sponsors are also welcome. Organizers hope to raise $10,000 with the Walk this year. For more information and details, please call 307-749-0497.

School Supplies Fundraiser – (ends Sept. 30th) The Food Basket is seeking financial donations so they can purchase school supplies for needy families on their help list. They will buy the school supplies in bulk, so all they are asking for is financial help. It costs about $35 to $40 to get the supplies for each child. Donations help needy families with elementary and middle school children in Sublette County. HOW TO DONATE: Drop off financial donations at the Pinedale Food Basket, 104 N Bridger Avenue or any spare change you might have into the donation box on the counter at Office Outlet in Pinedale. This fundraising drive goes until September 30, 2016. For more information call the Food Basket at 307-367-3206.

2nd Annual Ride for Reid Memorial (posted 8/15/16)
Terry Allen
Jessie Jensen stood on the corral rail and watched her brother Bodie work rosin into the rope he was going to hold onto when he rode in the steer riding event. I shook the bells at one end of the rope. "They put those cowbells on him and it makes him buck," she said. "I'm not riding this year because I'm four right now," she said. "But I'm just about ready to turn six."

Friends, families and fellow competitors came together to remember and celebrate the life of young Reid Schouboe; and raise money for a college scholarship fund by participating in a ranch skills event held at the Pinedale Rodeo Grounds on Saturday, August 13, 2016.

The events this day were: #10, Steer Stopping, Cattle Daubing, Steer Riding, Men's Barrel Racing, and Foot Racing. Participants got a chance to win belt buckles and a pair of special spurs.

There were a couple stools set up behind the bucking chutes and under the announcers booth, Kelly Andersen made headway cutting off the Mullet growing out of Colton’s head. "Do you know the story of the Mullet?" she asked. I didn't. "Well, Reid had a Mullet and after he died all the boys made a pact to grow mullets out for a year in his memory. Everyone is getting them cut off today." A little two foot tall cowboy waited for each Mullet head to sit down on the stool and then he did a circle around them and wet 'em down real good.

Todd Stevie auctioned off hog sides as a fundraiser for the Reid Schoubie Memorial Scholarship. He stood up at the top of the announcer booth stairs and you could tell right away he could do it for a living. The hogs went fast and then he started off auctioning cowboys. Carolyn Bing made the high bid for her husband Bob. "I just bought Bob in the Calcutta so if he wins in the Men's Team Barrel Racing event, I get my money back," she said. "But, he'll have to be fearless to win."

Grady stood over at The Burger Barn waiting for his burger. In one hand he held a soda and in the other he clutched a wad of dollar bills. "I can't talk much right now," he said. "I gotta get back over to the bull riding, it's my favorite event."

Wade Tibbits rode by standing up in his saddle so he could see over the heads of the crowd. "Kid huntin'" he said as he rode by. His wife, Kyndall was at a roping event elsewhere, so it was his job to keep an eye on his little blond son.

There were a number of foot races and the last one was for the over 50 gang of athletes. Someone shot off a gun and off they went...like...a herd of elephants. Sort of weaving side to side, stirring up a lot of dust and making scary noises. Brian Beaver went down for no apparent reason and the herd just went right on past him. When they broke the finish tape and turn around, there was Brian rolling around in the dirt. John Hintz...his good friend, took a look to the sidelines. "His wife doesn't look too worried about it," he said. "All Beaver did was step on his tender bits."

Cora, Ella and Grandpa Phil were palled up and made their way over to the water faucet for a cold drink from the hose. Ella climbed the rails and looked over at the last of the Mullets getting cut off. Little Cora climbed up beside her cousin and Grandpa Phil stood ready to catch her if she went off backward. Cora talked to me in an excited pre-english language, her eyes got big and she threw herself back letting out a whoop. Grandpa let her know he was there in case she lost her grip, and she did an even riskier version. It was obvious she was taking greater and greater risks because she knew he was there to catch her.

This was the spirit of the people who gather together for events like this throughout the year. Looking out for each other, helping each other, offering food and drink to a dusty photographer, and patiently explaining what a dauber is.
