The 11th annual J.W. Hart PBR Challenge is scheduled to roll out the red carpet to some of the Professional Bull Rider’s (PBR’s) best athletes May 31. The Wise County Fair Grounds Arena in Decatur proudly hosts the event.
The entire event started with legendary bull rider and cowboy, J.W. Hart. The event was created with intent to showcase top bulls and bull riders in the industry, coupled with the objective to give to civic and charitable agencies in the Wise County area.
Its first year, in 2004, was a complete success with overwhelming attendance and support from the community, said WC Challenger Charities Committee member Andrew Rottner. The committee is made up of Rottner, Calvin Jackson, Wendell Berry and Alan Sessions. In its first year, the J.W. Hart PBR Challenge entertained close to 6,000 people in a facility capable of holding 3,000 comfortably.
The event is considered a Touring Pro Event within the PBR. Three out of its 10 years of existence, the J.W. Hart PBR Challenge has won Venue of the Year. The impressive event has been among the top five every year.
Rottner attributes it to the top production team and hard work put into it. “We have the top name cowboys, best stock contractors, first class production team, best announcer and judges possible. The pyrotechnics, equipment and entertainment are the highest quality.” To read more pick up the April 2014 issue North Texas Farm & Ranch.

Mumblety-Peg

I was thumbing through the Netflix channels when, there it was, the great western television series, “Lonesome Dove.” I eagerly watched, for the 10th time, when five minutes into the episode, there was a scene where Newt, PeaEye and Dish were playing a knife game called Mumblety-peg. I had completely forgotten about the game of Mumblety-peg.

Mumblety-peg can be a dangerous game if you choose to play it that way. One brainless way is to see how close you can throw your knife to your feet without slicing your toes. Newt, PeaEye and Dish were playing the game safely by staying away from their toes.
