The return of big events to Ponoka took place over the weekend, as the Calnash Ag Event Centre hosted the Super 6 Team Roping event.
The three-day competition kicked off Aug. 21 with the All Girl Challenge that saw a total of 202 teams participate.
In the end, a local pairing of Taylor Flewelling and Cassie Robinson trotted off with $1,135 each and the championship, putting up a spectacular time of 38.67 seconds on four head.
Saturday was the big draw of the event, the $10,000 Super 6 championship, which drew 475 teams. Due to limitations, the rotations were split into 100 teams for the first three rounds.
Only the top 30 teams made the short-go with the pairing of Ryan Brown and Shayne Smith coming out on top to take home $5,000 each and a silver buckle.
One more roping event — the #13 — went on Sunday and it was another local-based pairing of Kash Bonnett and Denim Fletcher beating 45 other teams to win more than $2,600 each.
There will be more team roping action next month as the Team Roping Canada (TRC) finals, slated to run at the Calnash Sept. 17 to 21.
