Panhandle State Introduces American Qualifier at Justin Harrington Memorial Jackpot

Goodwell, Okla. — The annual Justin Harrington Memorial Goat Tying, Breakaway, and Calf Roping is set for Sunday, October 7, 2018 at the Lynn Gardner Rodeo Arena in Goodwell.

Hosted by the Oklahoma Panhandle State University Rodeo Team and sponsored in part by the Guymon Convention and Tourism Board, the jackpots will begin at 10 a.m. with goat tying followed by breakaway roping and then calf roping. Each event has $1000 plus in added money. The top combined money winner will earn a $500 bonus plus a Maynard Buckle and $250 to the runner-up. Combined money winners will be calculated for women based on breakaway, goats, and team roping. Combined calculations for men are figured based on calf roping and team roping.

The team roping earnings will be based on the Guymon Elks Team Roping held October 6th in Guymon, Okla.

Fees are $125 for two head in the goat tying and $150 for 2 head and a short round in the breakaway and calf roping. Each event may be entered on two different horses. The breakaway roping can be entered as an American Qualifier for a side pot. Cash only. Walk-up entries will be taken the day of the event.

This annual event was started by former Panhandle State Rodeo Coach Craig Latham in memory of Justin Harrington. Harrington’s three older sisters, Chancy, Hannah, and Frankie all attended Panhandle State and were on the rodeo team. All proceeds help fund the Rodeo Alumni Scholarship benefitting the Panhandle State Rodeo Team members.

For more information, contact Robert Etbauer at 620.655.3829 or Shelbie Weeder at 719.691.1796. In the event of adverse weather, the jackpots will take place at Robert Etbauer’s arena.
