In The Arena

Bob Feist

Ropings in general seem to be alive and well in most of the country but have dropped in team counts. I think some of this is due to the economy as well as the cost of roping has gone up and up in the past 20 years to where it is a very expensive hobby unless you are placing on a regular basis. Here on the west coast we are seeing the comeback of the smaller style ropings or practice sessions for a whole lot less money and less travel.
