The Medicine Creek Riding Club of Kennebec hosted a successful youth rodeo Saturday at the new refurbished arena. Over 150 contestants, age 0 to 19, from around the state participated in the events.

We had a nice cool day, and a large turnout, which all helped to make it a success, said Ron Schweitzer, rodeo organizer. We plan to host this event again next year.

Cash prize money was paid out to the top four places in each event. In addition, all-round and runners up were named in each age division and received a hooded sweatshirt or long sleeve t-shirt with the Medicine Creek Riding Club Youth Rodeo signature embroidered on it. Named as all-around in the girls 0-6 was Tiara Bartlett, runner up was Sidney Hollenback; boys age 0-6 all-around was Kalder Ness, runner up was Taygen Knippling; girls 7-10 all-around Chesney Nagel, runner up Vanzi Knippling and Savanna Glaus (tie); boys 7-10 all around Lane Blasius; runner up Tyler Gaer; girls 11-14 all around Shelby Sanford, runner up Sarah Sample; boys 11-14 all around Jace Melvin; runner up Grady Johnson; girls 15-19 all-around Summer Boomer, runner up Gabriel Gregg; boys 15-19 all-around Colby Porch, runner up Tanner Ozanne, Elliot Gourneau, and Pat Cowan (3-way tie).

The Lyman County Pheasants Forever chapter will hold their annual membership banquet and fund raiser Saturday October 15th at the gym in Kennebec according to organizer Craig Reuman.
Crowing hour starts at 6 pm followed by the banquet at 7 pm. Members of the Lyman High School band will prepare and serve a Prime Rib dinner complete with salad bar and smorgasbord of desserts.

Advance tickets are available from Reuman or other PF members. Tickets will also be sold at the door.

The Lyman County Chapter offered a cost share program to landowners to assist in building small dams and/or ponds for wildlife enhancements. We completed 15 dams already this year and still have some that will be completed yet this fall, said Reuman. Landowners are eligible for $ 300 per year for three years to be used to build dams that will supply needed water to wildlife, particularly pheasants.

Pheasants Forever is a non-profit conservation organization dedicated to the protection and enhancement of pheasant and other wildlife populations in North America through habitat improvement, land management, public awareness, and education. Such efforts benefit landowners and wildlife alike. PF is the only national wildlife conservation organization that leaves 100 percent of the fundraising dollars, along with the decision on how best to utilize those funds, in the local communities where they are raised. There are more than 110,000 members in 600 local chapters across the continent.
