Ticket feature: Roping series coming to events center

Freedom New Mexico

As many as 500 teams are expected to compete in the Matthews Land and Cattle No Bull Series this weekend at the Curry County Events Center.

And with prizes such as a three-horse trailer, saddles, buckles, cash and more on the line, the event is sure to be highly competitive, according to Events Center Manager Kevin Jolley.

“There’ll be lots of good ropers,” he said.

Events begin at 10 a.m. Saturday and Sunday and are free to the public.

With a strong reputation in New Mexico and Texas, and Oren Matthews’ numerous events throughout the year, Jolley said the event will attract ropers of all ages, male and female.
