South Central Texas ICA holds team roping
    The South Central Texas ICA (SCTICA) held their annual team roping on Saturday, Oct. 3, 2020, at Cowboy Fellowship in Jourdanton, Texas. The SCTICA Board of Direc-tors changed the name of the team roping to the SCTICA Windy Miller Memorial Team Roping in honor of past president and founder of the roping and SCTICA chapter, A.L. ”Windy” Miller. It formerly carried Buck Taylor’s name. When sharing with Taylor the name change he stated, “That’s what it should be.“ Taylor was on the Yellowstone set when he got the news and stated he was disappointed he wasn’t going to be able to rope in the event this year.
    “The board of directors made a great team from beginning to end,” said SCTICA President Laurie Miller, widow of Miller.  Banners were put on the arena fence early that morning, tacos were picked up and delivered and enjoyed, the sanitizer station was set-up, and prizes were displayed. Sponsors had been contacted and showed their great ongoing support to our event. Several directors were able to stay throughout the 14+ hours of the roping to help take down banners and issue prizes. “I would consider any project to have the same positive outcome with this group of directors!”
    A highlight of the evening was when Billy Ray Williams, after winning the top prize, gave the saddle to Miller in memory of her husband. “He chose to do that in a private setting, but I can tell you, tears fell and social distancing was temporarily forgotten as hugs were a necessity at that moment,” said Miller through more tears.
    Pictures and the list of winners can be viewed on the South Central Texas ICA facebook page.
