Saturday Night Crib Notes:

(Updated...IPRA posted Round 3 Results during Round 4 Opening)

In Bareback Bronc Riding, Gaetan Bernard (Alberta) had a good round, posting an 80-point ride to place 3rd in the Round, and to drop from 1st to 2nd in the Aggregate. Pat Legault (Quebec) scored a 72, was awarded a re-ride, came back with a 77. Christian Bilodeau (Quebec) had a qualified ride scored in the 70's and Danian Nutt (Ontario) was scored a 63.5 on his first bronc, was offered a re-ride and scored a 71 on his second. Sylvain Meuneir (Quebec) was turned out due to the injury sustained in the 2nd Go-Round. Josh Crager of Tennessee won his second consecutive round with an 88.5-point Ride.

In Steer Wrestling, Rod Weese (Ontario) switched horses after bulldogging farther down the pen in the first two rounds. Unfortunately, the equine partner switch didn't assist, he received a No-Time. Walt Sherry (Oklahoma) won the round with a 3.5.

In Team Roping, Jarod Nooren (Ontario) and his partner Wendell Stanley (Oklahoma) had a 5.9 plus 15 for one leg and a broken barrier. Ross Scully (Ontario) and Adam Schlecthy (Ohio) had a decent 7.7, but unfortunately had an illegal head catch (front leg in loop, allegedly) resulting in a No-Time. Casey Hicks and Wade Freeney (Oklahoma) won with a 4.5-second run.

In Saddle Bronc Riding, Rod Weese (Ontario) was the sole Canadian on the board with a 74.5-point ride. Peter Hallman (Ontario), Mathieu Tourigny (Quebec) were bucked off. Luc Cloutier (Quebec) was disqualified for a missed mark-out. Will Abshure (Arkansas) won with a 79.

Luke McCoag (Ontario) had a huge 84-point ride to tie for the win of the round. Clint Smith and Ian Charman (Ontario) both bucked off. This set the internet chat "off". Nathan Tull (Oklahoma) tied with McCoag for the 3rd Go-Round Win. clintsmithbuckoff
