George Paul


TWO SECRETARIES. DIFFERENT FUNCTIONS.
XTREME PRESSURE.

The 41st George Paul Memorial Xtreme Bull Riding could not function without two secretaries who have different jobs, different functions but have Xtreme pressure.

Eva Chadwick, PRCA rodeo and bull riding secretary from Scottsdale, AZ has the responsibility of making sure all PRCA Xtreme Bulls Tour riders pay entry fees, receive custom made George Paul Memorial Xtreme Bull Riding back numbers for the 40 different riders who compete each performance and, when the event is over Saturday night, ensures winners get their paychecks. And that’s not all. Not that difficult you may think for a two-day event however, you would be wrong.

Chadwick, in early February finished as secretary for the Southwestern Stock Show and Rodeo’s 35 performance rodeo including combined special events like a two-day Xtreme Bulls Tour event. Over 1,000 contestants enter the Fort Worth rodeo. Her days start early at 6 AM and end after the last performance each day at approximately 10:15. She then begins working on the next day’s performances which at Fort Worth has two to three performances a day. Duties entail paying day monies, go-round payouts, being an ambassador and traffic controller for the event dealing with stock contractors, rodeo committee members, contract members, rodeo judges and of course contestants as well as anyone connected to the sport of rodeo at Fort Worth. She also had to be sure program day sheet and judge’s sheets are correct, makes changes because contestants have been injured, encounter travel problems (while working other rodeos or simply drew out due to emergencies like babies being born) or other issues. Daily communication with the Professional Rodeo Cowboy’s Assn. giving rodeo updates on leader changes or other information vital to the PRCA has to be transmitted on a daily, sometimes minute by minute basis.  She continuously deals with contestants, the rodeo producer and sub-stock contractors, stock handlers, rodeo announcers, clowns and bull fighters, and timers which require constant updates as well as making additional announcer performance sheets and guides for the staff working the rodeo. The needs of the press can be a challenge as they often show up just before a performance begins or immediately after the performance’s conclusion, the most stressful times for a rodeo secretary, and want a lot of information to meet their deadline.

Chadwick in addition to being a PRCA rodeo secretary, also serves on the PRCA Contract Personnel Executive Council as the secretaries and timer’s representative. She constantly takes calls from other secretaries and times who have suggestions on how to make their jobs more efficient and who have ideas about rules changes that will make the sport, or their jobs more productive. The CPEC represents contract acts, laborers, photographers, announcers, music directors, clowns and bullfighters. Just because she represents secretaries and timers doesn’t mean she doesn’t field calls from other CPEC representatives. The CPEC has 12 to 15 meetings a year, usually on Tuesdays or Wednesdays by phone due to travel schedules and, the committee meets face to face at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo each December.

Since becoming a rodeo secretary in 1991, Chadwick has “seen it all and heard it all”. When questioned, “What do bull riding contestants ask the most?” she laughed when she replied, “it’s not what you would think”. “It usually is do I have to wear my back number or, where can I charge my cell phone or is there a hospitality center?”  Secretaries as a group, she believes, would want the public to know that they follow the rules of the PRCA and have a great deal of integrity and insist on accuracy in the collecting of judge’s data and paying out prize money and, monitoring the piles of paper work secretaries have to deal with. Additionally, Chadwick and all her member secretaries wish list includes a sturdy weather proof office, sufficient power to handle computers, printers, cell phones as well as AC and lighting, things that office secretaries don’t usually have to consider. The general public would be surprised at the working conditions at some rodeos which include dust storms, rain storms, snow, lightening, gale force winds and tornados with little protection and insufficient power for all electronic needs.

Working 12 to 15 rodeo events annually still allows Chadwick, when home in Scottsdale, to work as a realtor with an active schedule representing buyers and sellers and taking care of family needs.

What strikes anyone who comes in contact with the on-the-go lady is she does all that comes her way with a smile and unflustered demeanor. No matter whatever she chose to do, she would be the calm person to deal with in the eye of the storm. Eva is the model of decorum and professionalism. If you have a chance to meet her, please welcome her on her first trip to Del Rio and the 41st George Paul Memorial Xtreme Bull Riding.  Her family consists of one son, Guy. 23, an Army Cavalry Scout stationed in Germany and daughter Josee, 21, a college junior majoring in biology and fashion design. Husband Paul has been a rodeo contestant and works as a banker as a commercial lender, but still judges rodeos and has been a part of professional rodeo for many years. It’s no wonder that she is so accomplished when asked when dealing with others what can you do for me rather, “What can I do for your event to make it better and easier for you”, the mark of a true professional. Being a person who displays calm demeanor who is an ambassador for the sport of rodeo and elected to the CPEC Council and working two-week long rodeos like Fort Worth indicates why Jim Gay of Rafter G Rodeo selected her to secretary the fabled 41st George Paul Memorial Xtreme Bull Riding. Just in case you may have wondered, Eva Chadwick is driving from Scottsdale to Del Rio, 900 miles, and then driving to Kansas for a family reunion and then to the next event. Not a job for the weak hearted.

Martha Mitchell Bass runs the office for the George Paul Memorial Bull Riding and she too wears multiple hats for the event. From dealing with long time box and ticket buyers to first time attendees, she makes sure to answer all their myriad of questions and makes all feel they have known her forever. Showing seating locations, answering phone calls (hundreds) before, during and after the event she too has seen it all and heard it all. Almost no one can come to the George Paul without meeting Martha at some point.

Martha prepares and mails out letters annually to sponsors, box holders and attendees. She sends out invoices for sponsors, mails out tickets and passes, does the detail work for the bull riding program and poster layout, runs to the bank and post office and keeps event producer Bobby Paul on schedule.  Additionally, she also provides information, pictures, submitted articles and updates to the George Paul Memorial website and Facebook page plus answers questions from those who monitor the website. Constantly in motion Martha scours the arena to make sure the arena is “dressed” for the performances, assists with sponsor placement of signs, and does whatever needs to be done.

The oldest continuous bull riding in the world cannot function without volunteers which Martha helps supervise as the performances near. There is a great deal to be done for Del Rio’s biggest entertainment and sports event of the year where motels fill up the week of the two-day bull riding. Eleven years of experience with the George Paul, she knows what needs and has to be done long before the first chute gate opens and the last bull is bucked.

During performances she keeps a close check on volunteers, box holders, sponsors and attendees and addresses any problems that may arise. The two days of the event she is the first to arrive and the last one to lock the gate. She is quick to point out that she sees little of her husband Jerry and their six children, Shanna, Clint, Mikeal, Ryan, Bradley and Lindsey or their 14 grandchildren for several weeks before the event.

Following the final performance   Martha checks to be sure the arena and bucking chute signs are stored, the office cleaned out and prepares for work to begin for the 42nd George Paul Memorial Bull Riding. Martha Mitchell Bass and Eva Chadwick are two professionals and part of a team that ensures that what the fans see and enjoy goes off without a hitch. Without these two professionals there would be unlimited chaos.

Title sponsor Ram Country Del Rio and Ram Rodeo Series are                                  back for their 22nd year and Ram Rodeo Series is a national sponsor of the PRCA. Presenting sponsor is the Whitehead Memorial Museum. Others include Bud Light, Tractor Supply, Ramada Inn as the host hotel, Studio 6, The Whitehorse Lounge and HEB.

WHY EXTREME BULLS TOUR IS IMPORTANT FOR A PRCA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP

The 41st George Paul Memorial Xtreme Bull Riding, April 27-28 could determine the next PRCA world champion bull rider. In looking at the top ten Xtreme Bulls Tour standings as of March 14, consider the following.

Sage Kimzey, the number one ranked PRCA bull rider is currently ranked number 3 in the Xtreme Bulls Tour. Kimzey has won $78,498 for the year in PRCA rodeos and Xtreme Bull Riding events. Of that total amount, he has won $26,300 at Xtreme Tour Bull riding events. That means 33.5% of his winnings this year have been at Xtreme Bulls Tour events. Trevor Kashner has won a total of $57,241 at rodeos and Xtreme events but, $21,200 has been won at Xtreme Bulls Tour events making Xtreme Bulls Tour events 37% of his winnings.

Three-time George Paul champion Trey Benton III has won $51,130 at PRCA rodeos and Xtreme Bulls Tour events but, of that total, $28,033 is Xtreme Bulls Tour event winnings or 54.8% of his total so far. Now you get the picture. There are approximately 48 Xtreme Bulls Tour events and 600 plus PRCA rodeos for 2018. The 41st George Paul Memorial Xtreme Bull Riding is now a PRCA Xtreme Bulls Tour event and is one of only seven Division 1 Xtreme Bulls Tour events of the approximately 48 Xtreme Bulls Tour events for 2018. Division 1 is designated by adding more prize money than Division 2 events. Considerably more money. Bobby Paul, producer of the 41st George Paul Memorial Xtreme Bull Riding was determined to be a Division 1 event ranked with Fort Worth, San Antonio, Fort Mohave AZ and Ellensburg Washington, where the Xtreme Bulls Tour Finals are held. Why add more prize money some have asked? Because as the oldest continuous bull riding in the world Paul wants the best professional PRCA bull riders coming to Del Rio and prize money guarantees that.

The historic event that honors his brother George, the 1968 RCA world champion bull rider, National Finals winner and world record holder of riding 79 bulls in a row. Bobby Paul is excited to be aligned with the PRCA once again as the professional rodeo association where George won his world championship and set a world record.

41ST GEORGE PAUL MEMORIAL XTREME BULL RIDING IS A PRCA DIVISION 1 XTREME BULLS TOUR EVENT AND WHAT THAT MEANS

April 27-28 ushers in a new era for the 41st George Paul Memorial Xtreme Bull Riding. Many years ago, the George Paul was held on a Sunday afternoon after a three day PRCA rodeo. The invitational event hosted many PRCA world champions and National Finals Rodeo qualifiers. The birth of PBR in 1992 started when bull riders competing in the stand alone George Paul Memorial Bull Riding, since 1978, realized that bull riding as a single event format would attract large paying crowds. The GPMBR was an original member of the 13 event PBR and was televised on the TNN network.

Years later, the GPMBR moved to BRO, Bull Riders Only, for one year, then back to the PBR and in 2008 to CBR, Championship Bull Riding.

The 41st GPMBR has moved to the PRCA, Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, and Xtreme Bulls Tour schedule because of changes in the PRCA. Those changes include the recognition that a standalone bull riding tour within the PRCA with dollars won counting towards a Wrangler National Finals qualification and a PRCA bull riding world championship are necessary to compete with current sports trends. PBR and CBR were attracting some of the brightest and biggest bull riding stars to compete, the PRCA realized that a bull riding tour within the PRCA was not just a good idea but, a necessity.

With 40 plus Xtreme Bulls Tour events scheduled this year, it’s easy to understand that the PRCA recognized the importance of standalone bull riding within its competitive rodeo structure.

Being a Division 1 Xtreme Bull Riding Tour event is important. Why?  There are only six Division 1 events out of the 40 plus scheduled Xtreme Bulls Tour events in 2018. The 41st GPMBR ranks with Fort Worth, San Antonio, Fort Mohave, AZ., Reno, NV. and Ellensburg, WA. as the top echelon of Xtreme Bulls Tour events. That’s very exciting company for Del Rio, TX.  So, thank Bobby Paul for the 41st George Paul Memorial Xtreme Bull Riding traveling in such impressive company. Paul, event producer, agreed to add $30,000 prize money to the event to attract the best, make that very best bull riders in the world to Del Rio. Every dollar won at the 41st George Paul Memorial Bull Riding counts for a top fifteen qualification for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in December and a PRCA bull riding world championship. With 8 million dollars at stake for the ten day December event, the best bull riders in the world will want to enter the 41st George Paul as well as up and comers in the bull riding ranks.

Rafter G Rodeo Company under the direction of Neal and Jim Gay will be the lead stock contractor of four for the event. Rafter G Rodeo brought professional rodeo to TV when they produced the weekly Mesquite Championship Rodeo and rodeo Production Company has been in the business over 60 years.

Fred Boettcher, Administrator of the Xtreme Bulls Tour and PRCA Bull Riding Director Cody Whitney are expected to be in attendance for the event due to the “home coming” nature of the event and its importance in the PRCA bull riding scheme.

Title sponsor Ram Country Del Rio and Ram Rodeo Series are back for their 22nd year and Ram Rodeo Series is a national sponsor of the PRCA. Presenting sponsor is the Whitehead Memorial Museum. Others include Bud Light, Tractor Supply, Ramada Inn as the host hotel, Studio 6 and The Whitehorse Lounge.

Benton Takes Place in History winning third George Paul Memorial Bull Riding title

 

 40th George Paul Memorial Bull Riding presented by Ram Truck

DEL RIO, Texas  - April 29, 2017 – Trey Benton III, of Rock Island, Texas rode into the George Paul Memorial history books as the third man to win the legendary bull riding event three times. Benton won his first GPMBR in 2013 and again in 2014 before battling a series of career ending injuries that would sideline his career until last month when he returned to the CBR Road to Cheyenne.

“I had to believe in myself when no one else believed in me, the past two years were kind of rough on me, I have been down a long road for twenty-five years old. I learned how to lose and for a winner to lose it was difficult,” said the humbled bull rider who is a graduate of Sam Houston State in Huntsville.

Benton rode all three of his bulls including a 93 point ride in the final four Shoot Out round on Dirty Blonde a bull owned by Rhon Brown.

“I try to keep it as simple as possible and I have a plan everywhere I go, it feels like I’m at home here, I am a south Texas bull rider doing what I love, here in South Texas. The fans here are amazing and they love the sport, and ask any rider, that really makes a difference.”

“There is something about this event that is so special to me, if you know anything about bull riding history you know about Charlie Sampson and Tuff Hedeman and I am just proud to be able to stand alongside them in that way,” continued Benton.

Benton who has strong bull riding roots here in Del Rio where Mack Altizer from Bad Company Rodeo, is a life-long friend and he credits Altizer with putting him on quality stock at 14 years old.

“Mr. Mack, he is a big part of why I am standing here today with my third George Paul buckle,” said the bull rider who returned to CBR competition earlier this month qualifying for the final four man round at his first comeback event.

Round One

Thirteen riders heard the whistle in round one with several former George Paul winners in and behind the chutes. John Ash, the 1998 GPMBR winner returned to Del Rio to watch his son Demond Haynes take a shot at the Super Bull title. But after 29 outs, it was the rookie, Braeden Richardson of Jasper, Texas, who won the round with a 90.5 ride on 059 Boomer (Elite). Richardson had a great first trip to Del Rio finishing second on night one of the GPMBR.

Wrangler NFR qualifier Joe Frost kept pace and finished right behind him with 89 points on 3728 Yellowhair (Hurst).Benton was third in the round riding 277 Dirty Little Secret (Harris).

“That first bull felt perfect, my goal is always to stay in the middle, and he let me,” said Benton.

Five time World Champion Sage Kimzey turned in 86 points before stepping off 128 Uptown Funk, a bull he had never ridden but seen on tour for years.  Cody Jesus and Hector Cardona turned in a pair of 88’s and Australia native Ben Jones was 87. Ramagos, Radley and Melancon completed the round with scores to advance as did Boudreaux Campbell who advanced with an 82.5 on Bad JuJu (Team Whisnant).

Semifinal Round

With a new Ram truck and $40,000 waiting on the bull team winner, the bulls powered advanced right alongside the top twelve qualified rides in the CBR’s tournament style format. Campbell riding again as the number one gunner in the round set the pace with an 87.5 on Rawson’s Louisville Slugger. He would watch the next four riders, including five time World Champion Sage Kimzey, buck off. But it was Lyndal Hurst’s 243 Breaking Bad bull who wowed the bull savvy crowd sending Jeffery Ramagos to the dirt in 1.99 seconds.

But before Benton could make his second attempt of the night, thirty eight year old Australian native Ben Jones returned to victory lane riding CBR’s 2016 bull of the year Cowtown Cartel for 88.5 points.

Benton would be the third and only other qualified ride of the round easily riding JC Knapp’s 276 Midnight Tequila for 87 points.

“The only thing I was thinking at this point was to stay on, if I over think it never works out,” laughed Benton.

Shoot Out Round  

Jones was 175.5 on two which put him in the driver’s seat on bull selection. Benton was second with 175 Campbell was 170 on two and in third place thus far. The fourth and final seat in the Shoot Out would go to Braeden Richardson who advanced on his round one score of 90.5. With bull guru Sage Kimzey not qualifying for the final round, the remaining bull riders took advantage of his vast experience in picking the winning ride and Kimzey would be correct in his consultation.

Jones selected Crimson King (Melton), Benton quickly took the bull he and Kimzey thought was the path to success, 3112 Dirty Blonde from Rhon Brown. Rookie Boudreaux Campbell was confident he could ride the Jaynes bull he had been on in the past, EG 3034 Fraueline, which would leave Richardson matched up and left with the bull Rhon Brown calls the Bone Crusher.

Richardson in his first final four appearance would come down early, but the rookie sensation Boudreaux Campbell once again stepped up and set the pace with a 90 point ride on Fraueline. The crowd would not see Jones dance again as he would come down early off the big bucker, Crimson King.

From the first jump of Benton’s championship ride he was locked in the middle where 8 seconds later he was rewarded with the highest score of the night, 93 points.

“I was not going to get put down again after Fort Worth, it’s 90 percent mental and 10 percent athletics,” said Benton to the reporters while the crowd and fans were lining up for his autograph as the 2017 GPMBR Champion.

“That bull was my pick so it worked out for me,” said the champ who won not only his third GPMBR title but maybe more important than the prizes, the genuine South Texas bull rider won back his piece of mind… knowing and proving he is still a winner.

 Bull Team Competition

Less than two points separated the top four teams winning money at the “super pot for the super bulls” created this year to celebrate the 40th GPMBR. On the other side of the chutes the competition was fierce with $90,000 payout, a new Ram Truck, and a custom Juan Munoz Andrade saddle on the line. With a narrow margin of .21 points, Jerilyn Harmon and former bull riding champion Mike White triumphed with one ride score and two rank bull scores totally 281.62.

“Boomer really anchored our team tonight with the 90.5 score with Braiden in round one, but as usual Karaoke provided the assist with a rank bull score from the semifinal round,” said White who knew how tight the competition was all night and gave all the credit to Harmon's four legged athletes.

“You know Karaoke has been a great bull from a two year old and always a winner, he proved that again tonight. I pulled him off breeding cows a few weeks ago and bucked him that night in Fort Worth and he was the high marked bull – happened the same this weekend. I pulled Boomer off cows yesterday to make the trip to Del Rio. They love their job and tonight just proves it.”

“Bet on Black was my third bull and is a really good bull, he’s just a three year old, but he hit his hip tonight and it worried me he would not be as good as he drifted just a little before he turned back,” said Mike White who lines up the buckers and partners with Jerilyn Harmon’s Elite Bull teams.  

In second place was Burleson and Barnett with two qualified ride scores for their hard earned 281.41 points and the second place check of $24,000. Hurst Pro Rodeo took home $16,000 for third with The Jaynes Gang sliding in fourth for $10,000.

Bull of the Event honors went to Billy Jaynes’s Chaos Ghost who brought Kimzey down in round two with a rank bull score of 91 points from the four judge system. Lyndal Hurst’s Breaking Bad was also 91 points.

Champion Bull was Dirty Blonde who posted 93 points in the high marked ride column to provide the assist to Benton for the win.

World Standings Race

The Super bull has once again provided drama and impacting the backdrop of the CBR’s World Title race. Kimzey arrived in Del Rio 180.5 points ahead of Number two ranked Eli Vastbinder. Kimzey added one score, 86 points from round one, to remain in the CBR lead by 266.5 points or three bulls. Vastbinder uncharacteristically bucked off in round one leaving the door open for Kimzey who rode just one in Del Rio. Third ranked Boudreaux Campbell finished the strongest of the top five riding all three to finish second and add three bulls to his year end point total and remain in third as he heads to his first CBR World Finals in July.
