The event, which began in 1982, has grown into the most prestigious open Team Roping competition in the country. This past March, nearly 500 teams competed for more than $660,000 in cash and prizes. "The most gratifying thing about putting on the [classic] comes when we present the awards to the winners," says George. "The looks on their faces, the excitement and their words of appreciation make all the hard work worth every minute." For details on registration, competition and ticket purchasing, go to gstrc.com.
