Spicer Gripp Memorial Roping

Aug 9, 2017

The Spicer Gripp Memeorial Roping was this past weekend in Hereford, Texas. Gripp Memorial started in 1994 by a group of cowboys who wanted to put on a roping for their special friend, Spicer Gripp. Spicer was known throughout the panhandle for his love of kids and the sport of rodeo.

Today, their mission is clear, to encourage area youth to continue the agriculture culture through scholarships. Proceeds from the annual Spicer Gripp Memorial go towards the Spicer Gripp Mermorial Scholarship at West Texas A&M University which are available to students in the College of Agriculture and Natural Sciences and/or participating on the Rodeo Team at WTAMU.

One of the funnest events to watch at the memorial is Diggin’ the Kids’ Dummy Roping. It’s a great way to include the younger rodeo group with a fun but very competitive event. In the first round, the kids are given a couple chances to catch the “dummy” steer. If they’re successful, they get to move onto the final round where the distance to the “dummy” is increased until only one kiddo is standing. The winner of the Spicer Gripp dummy roping is awarded an engraved saddle to commemorate the event. Tate Thompson was the big winner this year.

In addition to various roping events held at the Spicer Gripp Memorial, there are also two other ways to participate. The first is a golf scramble that takes place at John Pitman Golf Club and a large cook-off celebrating the beef capital of the world.

We would like to congratulate all of that guys and girls that participated and encourage each of them to keep roping! If you missed all the fun this past weekend, be sure to make it out next year. The date is easy to remember, its always the first weekend in August.
