Roping event set for Carson City’s Fuji Park canceled

Nevada Appeal staff report

A National Team Roping Tour event originally scheduled for Memorial Day weekend at Carson City’s Fuji Park arena was canceled Tuesday, according to Tommy Lee of Tommy Lee Livestock.

Lee said the decision was made due to concern about the weekend weather.

“We had to cancel that event today,” he said in a telephone interview. “We’re going to try to reschedule it, but we have a lot of events.”

The Saturday and Sunday action would have included two megabucks competitions, a national nine qualifier event and one billed as memorial classic roping on the first day, a new national eight qualifier and No. 6 and No. 8 roping on Sunday. Prizes were buckles and cash or saddles and cash, according to Lee’s flier on the roping competition.

Competitors would have had to have a National Team Roping membership, with $40 memberships available on site had the not been scrapped.
