Youths who competed in this year’s Cinnabar Mountain Playdays youth rodeo series met with family and friends Sunday for their season-end banquet.

Six youth rodeos were held at the Grant County Fairgrounds in John Day this summer, with the kids competing in events such as pole bending, figure 8, barrels and goat tying. The youths racked up points for each event they completed during each rodeo.

First- and second-place winners received buckles and spurs from Lonestar Silversmiths, and third-place winners received halters by Toolin Turquoise Leather Co. The fourth and sixth-place finishers were given jackets and boot bags embroidered by MaryAnn Vidourek of A+ Stitching, and fifth-place winners received leather-embellished hat boxes by Clair Kehrberg.

Outgoing CMP board president Didgette McCracken said she enjoys the opportunity the youth rodeos give for families to be together, learning horsemanship and individual competition.

“I’ve definitely enjoyed watching the kids improve,” she said. “It’s lots of fun to watch.”

She said she is stepping down due to other commitments with her children.

“I look forward to fresh ideas from new board members who will bring their own experiences with rodeo,” she said. “We’re looking forward to 2019 and continuing to grow and thrive.”
