Our 2017 Finals are one for the record books! We had 151 finalists compete over the weekend of November 11-12, 2017 at Acadiana Fairgrounds SugArena in New Iberia, LA. Over $140,000 in cash and awards were distributed. Katti Breaux started out the weekend with a short clinic before our 1st go round on Saturday. Special thanks to Danny Fitch for cooking our gumbo for Saturday evening and all those that contributed potato salad or dessert. We had plenty! Both our silent and live auctions were a success. Addison Krieg, Pam Denais and Tyler & Bailey Falcon donated the 3 items bringing in the highest bids. The 339 Feed Raffle was won by Phillip Joubert. Many classes were a fight down to the final average points and we congratulate all of our year-end winners. Fastest barrel time for the finals was a 15.647 run by Katti Breaux on Wimpys Haida. Fastest pole time was a 20.788 run by Shari Dartez on Bayou Cowboy Amour. Complete results and year-end standings are posted.
