None of the teams got complementary tickets and their families had to pay. Now you say the teams got something special when they did not have to pay to come make money for San Antonio. An association that claims to have class and who made thousands and thousands of dollars acts like they were doing the teams a favor by not charging escaramuzas to perform. Pathetic, that is what San Antonio is. That is why the lienzo and stands look so bad. Pathetic. One day maybe someone who cares about Charros, Charras and Charreada will get back in charge.

By the way Bobby, the families did not get in free. They had to pay. None of the teams got complementary tickets. San Antonio likes to act special, well the only thing special about them is that they are selfish. The only real Charro left there is Carl Rodriguez. The rest of the members are Charro Bancos, who just like to give each other plaques telling themselves other how important they are.

I guess Bobby thinks women belong in the kitchen. Not even a rose. If the men did not get paid they are stupid. I was told by a Charro the men were paid San Antonio makes thousands

No men got paid, San Antonio did not get paid. The girls had opportunity to use a booth to raise money and they did. Their families got in free. You have been given wrong info.

The girls were wonderful at San Antonio yesterday. Too bad they did not get any respect. I was told the men were paid to be there, but the girls did not get anything. No free tickets for their families or even a trinket. Not even a rose. The Fiesta Commission pays San Antonio for putting on the Charreada and then San Antonio makes money at the gate, beverages and concessions. The girls worked hard and they deserve some recognition

Catherine Helland from the Battle of Flowers Parade sent me n email, saying the Charros del Sur, won first place in the Cavalcade section of the Parade. She is sending me the ribbon. I guess the Charros del Sur are going to have to get someplace where they can keep awards and the Flag from Congressman Gallardo. Things keep getting better for the Charros in South Texas. It is hard work, but it is worth it.

We have been told that the police in and around Nevada Texas, where the State finals are being held are very strict about trailers and horse regulations, including coggins test. You might want to be prepared and make sure you have a copy of the test with you.

Good turn out at El Bajio yesterday. Two Charreadas and the Escaramuza Oguillo Mexicano (Mexican Pride). The girls were fantastic and the guys really worked hard. The State Finals are going to be great if all the Charros are as good as those in the Southern Zone.
Had a special guest, US Congressman Pete Gallego (D TX) from Alpine. He grew up riding his grandfather's horses. He seemed to be impressed by how Charreada is so family involved. His son wanted to stay, but like most politicians, he only has a short time before his next commitment. We want to thank him for coming.
He gave the Charros de Sur, a flag that had been flown over the Capital, something that will be a treasured symbol of how the USA, is accepting Charreada. The Charros de Sur, hope other politicians learn to understand the beauty of Charreada and how it is supportive of family values.

If the Charros have any guardian angels, they are Vern Kershner, President of the Jordan Valley Rodeo and Doug Whitsett, a State Senator and large Animal Vet in Oregon. It looks like they want to stage a floor fight against the anti horse roping bill. Both of them work with livestock and talk about how roping horses by their legs is a common practice in ranch and vet work. It is too bad some Charros don't understand this.
In Nevada, the Charros are still going to surrender and let the anti horse roping bill pass. The two Republicans on the Committee were going to vote against the bill, so you only needed one Democrat. According to the Hispanic Caucus, they had that vote, so the bill should not have passed. It is still not obvious wither the Charros got played by the PRCA, or if some sort of backdoor deal was made to sacrifice the Charros in exchange for something not so obvious and personal. The fact is, the bill is going to pass and all the Charros got was a pat on the back and some vague promise.
It is hard to win a floor fight, but if the Charros guardian angels lose, they did not wimp out and went down fighting.

I have had a number of comments or actually questions about the Oregon law, decimating Charreria there. That law says, you cannot rope a horse by the legs. It also says that the American Rodeo is a right protected by law. So you can still kill all the calves and steers you want in American Rodeo, but you cannot do piales, which to my knowledge has never hurt a horse. You also cannot do modified Mangana, where the horse is not dropped, which also has never hurt a horse. This just does not seem right to me. I guess it is OK since the Committee to Defend Charreria just withdrew its opposition to the Nevada Horse Tripping law, even though they had the votes to defeat it. You have to wonder what some people are thinking. What I think is “La soga no hace mangana sin la mano que la guia, que es la mano mexicano que forjo a la charreria” Jose Ma. Parga Limon

El Bajio, put $154.00 into the injured Charro fund from the proceeds of the Pre-Estatal.

If there was a fight at Bajio, nobody seems to have seen it and the police were not called. So what ever it was, I don't know if you can call it a fight. It would be better if we had a central covered lienzo. The problem is, that kind of facility would mean everyone working together and government assistance. There is no way any one teams, or even all the teams could get the land and money together. If you look to Mexico, all the big lienzo have government help.

I agree with you, it was a bit dusty, traditionally that happens when there is not enough mositure in the ground or in the air. The ground will dry, and when it is windy due to climate change, the dry particles in the gound and in the air begin to move around creating dust that many times will stick to your clothes. At this time the only solution that we can provide is to water the arena in such a way that the dirt or dust subsides, But we can only water so much so that it does not endanger the riders. As for dust outside of the arena, we hope and pray for water or rain. Another solution is to have a covered arena. If you think that you can help with that please contact Mr. Randy because we really could use your support in breaking ground on this new venue. As of now we have no alternative but to just ride outside and get a little dusty.
As for the fight, I too heard there was one.. but that happens even in soccer. I did see that the organizers did have security, but usually these scuffles end before security can get there.
We really look forward to having your support and patronage with the wind and dust problem. Until then lets just hope its not too windy and the next event.

To Jeff; Bexar County will not build an arena for the Charros, like they did for the cowboys. The government does not support Charreada like Rodeo. I noticed that you did not say anything bad about the ability of the Charros and Charras. They were great. They did not have problems with the dust. They are not Drug Store cowboys.

they sold beer and there was a fight and they had no security and the ambulance was there its a dust bowl and that's tradition come on. where I was standing I was filthy dirty. there was a kid in the beer booth .

Had a great time at El Bajio this weekend. Pancho Flores was as good as ever. He makes Paso look easy. He had better watch out though. The Hernandez boy is getting pretty good. The girls was as fantastic. It is realy wonderful to see how the Charros and Charras work together.
