The First One|
I nodded my head, the gate swung wide,
The rest was just a blur...
The whistle blew, I made the ride,
Just how I still aint sure.
A seventy two point score,
I know it might sound a little silly.
But I won my first buckle.
On a white faced bull named Willy
First bull I’d ever tried,
First Kamloops High School Rodeo.
It`s hard to believe it all began.
Forty Years ago.
PS , Bob Gottfriedson and Reg Depper judged that first high school rodeo and Mike Hayward won the bareback riding Victor Mack won the All Around . Be darned if I can remember much else.
