Next Jackpot Round Robin Ranch Sorting March 19th!

Just a reminder that our next jackpot Round-robin Ranch Sorting event is next Sunday, March 19th! We are adding an hour to each session, as we found that we need a little more time. There are still slots open and the new time frames are…

Session 1: 9AM – 11AM    Session 2: 11:30AM – 1:30PM  and if we have enough people wanting a later session we will have the final one from 2PM – 4PM! These sessions need to be full to help pay for the cattle to be brought in. :-) So get your forms into the fairgrounds office by Friday, March 17th!

Here are the forms: 2017 Updated Sorting Entry Form  2017-sorting-release

2017 Grange Ranch Sorting Series!

Our dates are here for the Lake Earl Grange Ranch Sorting Series, mark your calendars! January 15, March 19, and May 21! The Salt Creek Arena in Eagle Point is collaborating with us and their dates are February 19, April 22, and June 11.

This series will be a round robin of 15 riders in 4; one and one-half hour sessions! So that means during each session of 15 riders…you will be riding with 14 different partners in 1 ½ hours! This eliminates sitting all day waiting for your turn to ride.

Jackpots will be paid each time for all four sessions!

There will be end of year buckles for Champion and Reserve! You will earn individual points with each session you place in. To be eligible you must ride is at least one date at each site (Del Norte and Eagle Point).

The session times will be as follows for each sorting date (Del Norte and Eagle Point):

9:00AM – 10:30AM

10:30AM – 12:00PM

12:00PM – 1:30PM

1:30PM – 3:00PM

You may ride in 1 or all 4 sessions as space allows and earn points!

The daily cost for the first session will be $50 ($20 cattle fee plus $30 entry fees) per person. Any additional sessions will be only $30. So, if you wanted to participate in all 4 sessions, your total cost would be $140.

Signups are now open! Here is the Release and Entry Form:
