We visited the Charreada Sun the 23rd. We thoroughly enjoyed it. We did not stay all day, but would have liked to. It was fascinating to see the different ways of doing some of the same things that we do in rodeo too. Would like to get back next Sun to see the ladies, but am not sure we will be able to. We appreciate a couple of "gringos" being welcomed. Our Spanish is not that good, so did not follow all of the rules etc that was announced but we caught enough to pretty well understand. Also I had printed out one page from your web cite that explained the events some. Mike took lots of pics.
Thank you again. Had a great time! Carolyn and Mike Lowrance - - - - Houston

Had a great time at the first weekend of the finals. Espuelas de Plata were really hot. Victoriano Flores rode the wild mare and he was fantastic. The horse fell on its back and he stayed on, got up with the horse and finished the ride. Then he helped in mangana. He is 63. Most 20 year olds would have been taken to the hospital or even worse.

The Coleadero and Charreada scheduled last Saturday and Sunday at Bajio, had to be canceled because of rain. We really need a covered lienzo. Without that we are at the mercy of the weather.

The rule is simple, if you want to post on this message board, use your real name and I must have your phone number to confirm who you are. If you do not want to post your number, e-mail it to me. If you don't like the rule, go to another message board and say anything you like. This board is to promote charreria.

Had a great time at Los Compadres, 11 teams and an escaramuza. The teams were good. Wonderful florero in turna and mangana. Las Valentinas put on a good show.

We have a winner for the TV, but the phone number does not work. It is ticket No. 62, and it was sold by Rancho Los Compadres. If you have that ticket, call me at 846-8757

Remember, that on Sunday May 9 (Mothers day), there will be a charreada sponsored by Los Caporales at Checo Galindo's lienzo. The address is 175 S. Loop 1604. I am told there will be 9 teams and three charreadas. Also the long awaited raffle will be held. Sorry about the delay, but things will get better. My wife and Rogelio's wife were discussing the ranch dance for the fund. Looks like it will be in June and admission will be $5.00 per person. The escaramuzas will draw to determine who sells what. Beer and sodas will be sold by the charros. The proceeds from the gate and beverage sales will go to the fund and the food profits will go to the different escaramuzas. We want to be fair about this, while working to promote charreria. Viva Charreria.

There will be another one on May 9 at the same place. Then the State finals will be there on the 22 and 23 then the 27,28,29 and 30 of May. Sounds like a very busy month.

To Zona Norte and Raul, I have removed your messages, because they do not have a name and phone number. There have been a few immature and mean spirited persons who have posted nonsense on this board and because of that we require a name and some way to prove who left the message. Raul, in answer to your question, there is no Houston Calendar that I know of. If they make one, It will be posted. If you go to the Texas Teams and Phone Numbers link, you can find a team from Houston and get the information.

I was asked to put the message board back up to congratulate the Charros de Bejar also known as the Charros del Sur, for being awarded the top prize in the Cavalcade (horse) section of the Battle of Flowers Parade. The judges commented on the lady’s Dresses and the Friesian Horses. We’d like to thank all the participants, but we’d especially like to commend Victoriano Flores for taking charge of the group and his arm of iron for the way he kept his rope working. The presentation was greatly enhanced by Rogelio Cruz, who’s gymnastic florero was really impressive. If you want to see a picture of him, look at the slide show of the parade on mysantontio.com. It was really great seeing so many teams working together to support charreria.
