Kearny – R & R Roping Productions held another successful event during this latest Pioneer Days. The only thing lacking was parking space.

Both participants and fans filed the Kearny Sheriff’s Posse Arena. Ropers came from far and wide, including White River Snowflake, Show Low, Globe Oracle, Tucson, Aravaipa, San Manuel, Dudleyville, Mesa, Queen Creek, Apache Junction and one who lives on a ranch two miles west of Florence Junction.

Eight-year-old Rene Arviga Jr. debuted in the Saturday session, roping with his dad, Rene Sr. He had a good outing, roping five and missing three. His older sister, Ahleah, 10, was also to debut but, fell ill.

Local young roping champions Steve and John Henry Gaona roped both days. Another local champion, Celina Arviga, participated. Danny Padillo, Kearny’s own professional roper, participated in Sundays session.

Jaime Morales and Lorrie Garcia keep the roping running smoothly, responsible for pairing ropers, keeping times, and collecting fees. Jaime keeps the roping moving by calling ropers to chutes and announcing roping times. Lorrie records all roping times and winners names.

This year, the concession stand added carne asada burros to go along with the ever-tasty red and green chili burros. Maurio Parra was in charge of the grill. Liz Parra and Barbara Martony, along with Tina Mendoza, prepared the menudo, red chili and green chili. The menudo was especially good.

Oh—and Jimmy C. from White River says, “Hi.”
