Chili Anyone…

A bowl of chili tastes good just about anytime… and if you get the meat cooked early in the day and throw everything in the crock pot, your house will stay cool and still allow you to serve up a hearty supper.

This recipe is a simple one that easily allows the cook to alter ingredients, replace the meat for more beans, use whatever type of beans you most enjoy or add other vegetables to the mix (chopped carrots and celery are options)

Mexican Black Bean Chile

1 lb hamburger

1 onion chopped

2 or 3 cloves garlic chopped

1 large can black beans, drained

1 large can pork n beans

1 pkg low sodium taco seasoning

1 14 oz can stewed tomatoes

2 cups fresh mushrooms chopped

Note: You can replace the pkg of taco seasoning with the following if that is your preference:

1 tsp cumin
2 tsps chile powder or to taste
1/2 tsp oregano

Brown hamburger with chopped onion & garlic. Drain well.

Put hamburger in crock pot, large heavy bottomed steel pot or large casserole dish.

Add beans, tomatoes, mushrooms and seasoning

Cook on low for 4-6 hours if using crockpot.

(If using steel pot on stove element, cook on low for 2 hours)

(If using casserole, cook at 350 in oven for 2 hours)

Garnish with grated cheddar or jack cheese and sour cream if desired.

Serve with buns, cornbread or biscuits (and a green salad). I serve almost everything with a green salad!!

Note: Tastes even better the next day. And, leftovers freeze well. (I often double this – or add more beans – if feeding a larger crowd or if I want to freeze half the batch.)

Stampede Barrel Racing Wrap-Up

The Calgary Stampede is one of Savannah Reeves’ favorite rodeos. Last year, she and her horse, Thunder, won the reserve title. This year, the Dublin, Texas barrel racer left the 2010 ‘Greatest Outdoor Show On Earth’ with the Championship bronze and $112,500 in prize money.

“My horse, Thunder, really performs well here,” the talented rodeo athlete explained after the ‘Final Four’ run Sunday, July 18, “We were second last year – we won $41,000 then – so I was excited about coming back for this year’s Stampede.”

A three time Texas Circuit Finalist and registered nurse, Reeves finished her 2009 season in sixteenth spot in the World standings after losing her great horse ‘Moon’ in a freak accident last summer. Thunder and Fire, her primary rodeo horse now, is an 11 year old son of the great barrel horse stallion, Firewater Flit, and out of a ‘Pass Em Up/Bunny Bid/King’ bred mare. It was this gelding that Reeves rode at Calgary to the reserve title in 2009 and the Championship this year. “I recently purchased him from my parents,” explained Reeves a few minutes after her big win at Calgary. “And he’s just paid for himself!” she added with a big smile.

The ten day Calgary Stampede Rodeo is set up in two ‘4 day’ Pools with ten contestants in each. Five monies are paid each day ($5500 for first down to $1500 for fifth place) with the top four money earners from each Pool moving forward to the final Sunday Showdown Round. For those contestants not able to qualify out of the two Pools, another opportunity is offered on Wild Card Saturday (July 17) where the top two athletes also move onto the final day of competition. All ten Sunday long-round contestants get paid: the top four depending on their success in the final four round and the bottom six $3300. each regardless of Sunday’s long-go ranking. A strictly invitational rodeo with the World’s top contestants in attendance, the Calgary Stampede is neither CPRA nor PRCA approved. Translated, the money won does not count for the CFR/NFR (though bull rider earnings count in the PBR)… but it does help pay the ‘not insignificant’ costs of rodeoing at the professional level. Of the twenty barrel racers competing at this year’s Stampede, five were Canadian.

Reeves’ 2010 Stampede success began on the second day of Pool B action when she turned the barrels in 17.59 seconds to win the round and $5500. She added two third place finishes over the next two days for a total of $12,500. and third overall in the Pool. Without the pressure of competing in Wild Card Saturday (where contestants enjoy a last chance to secure one of two available berths in the Final Sunday Showdown round), Reeves was able to enjoy some time away from the Stampede grounds. “Lindsay Sears is a good friend of mine,” she explained. “I was able to head out of Calgary to her family’s ranch (a couple of hours southwest of Calgary) where I stayed from Friday evening to Sunday morning. My horses had a break and some green grass.” This no doubt helped Thunder on ‘Stampede Super Sunday’ where he and Reeves ran their personal best times of the week (two 17.25 second runs back to back in the long and short go-rounds).

Additional Pool B qualifiers were Sue Smith (2009 NFR qualifier) and Canadians, Joleen Seitz (2006 Calgary Stampede Champion) and Rana (Walter) Koopmans (2009 Reserve Canadian Champion).  The top four Pool A barrel racers were two time and defending World Champion, Brittany Pozzi;   NFR qualifier, Jill Moody; 2008 World and Stampede Champion, Lindsay Sears and two time Canadian Champion and NFR qualifier, Lisa Lockhart. These eight contestants were joined by the two fastest Wild Card Saturday barrel racers, PJ Burger (’09 NFR qualifier) and Molly Powell (many time NFR and Calgary Stampede qualifier).

The final Sunday long go (or ‘ten round’) saw Reeves take the win (17.25) with Sears 1/100th of a second behind. Smith ran a 17.37 for third spot with Koopmans at 17.38 rounding out the four competitors who moved onto the ‘Final Four’ $100,000 round. Koopmans enjoyed the top of the ground in the short go on Real Easy Doc (a 9 year old ‘Easy Jet’ bred gelding that won the $100,000 Pro Tour in his futurity year). Unfortunately, two hit barrels left Koopmans with fourth place money – $10,000 (a pretty nice sum for 4th place). Sue Smith ran next and turned the barrels in 17.88 on her Dash Ta Fame NFR horse for a third place cheque of $15,000. Sears enjoyed a run that looked tough to beat (17.31) on her World Champion mare, Martha – good for $25,000. But, Reeves and Thunder were able to repeat their long-go time to win the title and the $100,000 first place purse.

Reeves found the competition tough… and was excited to be in the company of a World Champion, an NFR qualifier and a many time CFR qualifier in the short go. While her final performance wasn’t without challenge (Thunder set hard on first barrel and popped Reeves forward), the pair were able to negotiate the pattern in the fastest time that day. The overall fast time at this year’s Stampede, 17.13, was run by Sue Smith and her 7 year old NFR gelding, Real Claim Ta Fame earlier in the week.

Stampede officials worked diligently on the ground conditions throughout the ten day event – which saw everything from 28C (90 degree)  temperatures to 8C (50 degree) days with rain and hail. While greater success overall was seen by barrel racers running closer to the top of the ground, Sue Smith earned one of her two round wins in tenth position on the ground with a 17.19 second run. Other 2010 rodeo event winners were Will Lowe (Bareback Riding), Matt Shiozawa (Tie-Down Roping), Wade Sundell (Saddle Bronc Riding), Lee Graves (Steer Wrestling) and Douglas Duncan (Bull Riding).

Barrel Racing Times Strong Despite Adverse Weather at Stampede

Barrel Racing Times Strong Despite Adverse Weather at Calgary Stampede

Pool B action began today at the 2010 Calgary Stampede. And, despite rather challenging weather conditions, barrel racers rose to the occasion with Lethbridge, Alberta’s Rana (Walter) Koopmans winning the round with a 17.64 second run. 2009 NFR qualifier, Sue Smith rode her Dash Ta Fame gelding, “Claimer” to second place money (17.74) with five time Canadian Champion Deb Renger (who was on the top of the ground) third with a 17.82 second run. All pretty respectable times considering the Stampede has seen two plus inches of rain in the last couple of days.

Pool A action which began last Friday, July 9 with sunshine, warm weather and great ground conditions, wrapped up yesterday. The first set of barrel racing contestants contended with moisture too, as a strong weather front arrived just after the rodeo started July 12… dumping significant moisture on the infield at the start of Monday’s rodeo. Ironically enough, the ground held up very well despite the rain… a tip of the hat to Stampede officials for working to create positive ground conditions for the breadth of infield events held during the ten day event. At the end of Pool A, the top four barrel racers (who earned spots in Sunday’s Showdown Round July 18) were Brittany Pozzi, Jill Moody, Lindsay Sears and Lisa Lockhart.

Pool B contestants return for three more performances… hopefully under drier conditions. For the 12 contestants in each major event who don’t earn a buy into Sunday’s Showdown round by virtue of their regular performance results, “Wild Card Saturday” (July 17) offers one more opportunity for them to secure one of two additional spots on Sunday’s roster.

Tune in later this week for further Calgary Stampede barrel racing highlights.

Dee Butterfield Alumni Classic Barrel Race

Dee Butterfield Alumni Classic Barrel Race

Starting today, 400 barrel racers will arrive at the Ponoka, AB Stampede Grounds for the 40th Anniversary Dee Butterfield Alumni Barrel Race which will run July 8 – 10. An icon in Canadian Barrel Racing circles, Dee Butterfield continues to enjoy a very successful career. To date the B.C. ranch-raised cowgirl, who resides just northwest of Ponoka, AB, has earned 15 amateur barrel racing titles, 11 Canadian Finals Rodeo qualifications, four CPRA season leader titles and a National Finals Rodeo qualification. Dee won a Canadian Barrel Racing Championship in 1992. A talented trainer and quarter horse breeder as well, Dee has accumulated multiple futurity and derby championships spanning four decades.

Always willing to help other competitors, Dee began instructing barrel racing and horsemanship clinics at the age of 18. The year 2010 will mark 40 years that she has held these informative clinics across Western Canada, Australia, and Hawaii. Teaching the fundamentals of the sport, inspiring training and riding skills with an emphasis on the importance of developing a winning attitude, Dee has helped students go on to win at amateur, high school, little britches, junior and professional levels. Some students have become provincial, state, and national champions.

Dee Butterfield & Add A Dash - 2008 Canadian Barrel Futurities High Point Champion

Dee’s clinics are suitable for riders of all levels and ages. Dee’s youngest student to date was four and the oldest, 65. One student has attended the clinics off and on for 34 years.

The Alumni weekend will feature a Wine and Cheese Social, Barbecue, numerous awards and prizes, including a Championship saddle for each of the 5D winners and Dave Elliott spurs for each reserve champion. Participants will wear their ‘favorite old barrel racing shirt’ Friday… then change things up for Saturday where they have been asked to “Bling it On!”

Dee has enlisted the help of family and friends for what promises to be an exciting weekend. Several tractors will be on hand to ensure ground conditions remain excellent for all. Numerous sponsors are supporting the event, and the weather promises to be sunny and warm.

Cowboy Christmas

2010 Cowboy Christmas equals cash for Canadian barrel racers

One Week, Multiple Rodeos, Millions in Prize Money

They call it Cowboy Christmas or “the first” in Canada; “the fourth” in the U.S. And to professional rodeo athletes on both sides of the forty-ninth parallel, it’s a span of lucrative rodeos that can make or break an individual’s chances of qualifying for the Canadian Finals (CFR) in Canada or the World Finals (NFR) in Las Vegas at the end of the season.

Cowboy Christmas starts in late June (after Nevada’s Reno Rodeo) and runs through the first week in July or so depending on the way calendar dates fall. The run involves upwards of 25 rodeos and millions of dollars in prize money.

Those cowboys and cowgirls staying in Canada traveled between Ponoka and Airdrie, Alberta and Williams Lake, BC – a fairly do-able run if you were set up right. US contenders came to as many of the Canadian rodeos as they could fit in – in and around the very lucrative “July fourth” run south of the 49th parallel – which included such rodeos as Red Lodge and Livingston, MT; Cody, Wyoming; Molalla and St Paul, Oregon; Greeley, Colorado and Vernal, Utah to name a few.

Payouts at ‘Cowboy Christmas rodeos generally range from $5000. to $25,000 depending on the rodeo’s added money, the number of contestants and an athlete’s consistency and number of chances to compete. It’s not surprising that rodeo contestants get creative in their bid to make the miles and performances.

Travel Plans

Highway 2 in Alberta (particularly the stretch between Calgary and Edmonton, on which both Airdrie and Ponoka lay) is congested at the best of times. Add a healthy dose of tourist traffic, along with a few hundred rodeo rigs and it resembles a freeway. Most rodeo athletes drive to the their long-weekend events; though some leave horses at pre-planned stopping places or in the case of a number of the tie-down ropers and bull doggers, arrange to be mounted on another contestant’s horse and fly to save time and cover more rodeos.

I caught up with CFR/NFR barrel racer Molly Powell earlier in the weekend. Molly had competed at the Canadian rodeos and was in Livingston, MT where she was getting her horse re-set before moving on to a number of U.S. rodeos. Her cousin, CFR barrel racer, Carolyn Metcalfe had jumped in with her to help drive over the weekend.

2008 World Champion, Lindsay Sears enjoyed early weekend success at Williams Lake and Ponoka (where she was leading the long go) then headed back south. She ended up facing a tough decision Saturday when she qualified for the short go at both Ponoka and Greeley, CO. Ponoka was her choice… which excited the Canadian rodeo fans. The drive back was well worth the trip as Lindsay split the Ponoka Aggregate with former World Barrel Champion, Sherri Cervi.

CFR barrel racer, Suzanne DePaoli of Longview, AB was traveling with her husband and son (Don and Steele). The threesome competed at Airdrie Pro Rodeo Friday night, then hit the trail for Williams Lake, BC. where they were up in the Saturday performance. The threesome were hoping to stay in contention for Sunday’s Ponoka Stampede Final, which would mean another ‘over night’ trip back through the mountains.

Rodeo contestants who haul horses generally know from experience which rodeo grounds make reliable stopping places at all hours of the day and night. Good access, safe pens or stalls and availability of water are key components when it’s 3 a.m., everyone’s tired and the horses need a break from the trailer. Cell phones have certainly made communication easier when it comes to ensuring good layover places for tired cowboys, cowgirls and rodeo horses.

Cowboy Christmas Cheques

Are all the miles, lack of sleep and expense worth it? Well, that depends on who you’re talking to. A number of contestants had little or no success after all the hours of driving and fuel re-fills this past weekend…. but they’d be the first to tell you, “That’s rodeo… some good days, some not so good.”

For those who did well, the pressure may be off (or at least lessened) when it comes to the pursuit of a Finals berth. 2008 World Champion barrel racer, Lindsay Sears enjoyed tremendous success for the second July long weekend in a row. She was the top pro barrel racing money earner for 2010, racking up over $21,000. Lindsay split the aggregate at Ponoka (with Sherri Cervi), was 3rd at Williams Lake, won the first round at Greeley, was 2nd in round two but turned out of the short go in favour of Ponoka. Two time Canadian Champion, Lisa Lockhart (Oelrichs, SD) was the second highest barrel racer on the earnings list with close to $18,000. won. Crystal Shaw of Daysland, AB enjoyed a huge weekend as well with a win at Williams Lake and second place at Airdrie, AB. (over $6700 in earnings) which should put her well up in the Canadian standings.
