"This is a prestigious deal. It's a chance to rope with guys mostly my age, and it's not everyday you get to back into the bay for $100,000! Win or lose, we all have a great time."
Robert Lever, the heeling half of 2010 RRI Winning team
"This is the absolute Cadillac of ropings. It doesn't get any better than this. Anyone who's numbered right is absolutely out of their mind not to come to this. They way it's run - it's just classy, right down to the food at the banquet this night before. Everything is high class. Every roper is screened so it's fair and everything about it is just excellent."
Heath Myers 2008
"This is the most exciting thing that ever happened in my life. I've been a calf roper and steer wrestler my whole life and have won championships, but nothing like this. I always wanted to be a World champion, and this is like winning one for me. I'm ready to jump out of my skin!"
Billy Trimble - 2006 Champion
"This is the finest amateur roping today. Nothing compares to it. The organization is fabulous, the facility, the cattle - it's all first rate. This roping is for people who want to participate in a first class event!"
Dennis Carroll - 2001
"This roping is the best thing out there for amateur team ropers. But the best thing about it is that we're doing for charities"
Karl Sterssman 2001
"Perry needs to be commended for putting on a roping for the lower numbered ropers for an unreal amount of money. This is a first class event. I don't know of other ropings that pay like this one."
Pat Walsh 2000
"This is great. What else can I say? What Perry is doing is what no one else has done for the average working guy roper. It's admirable that he's so dedicated!."
Larry Goddard, a #3 healer RRITR 2000 Champion
"Perry does a great job with this roping. He stated something that's really great for team ropers. It's the best roping there is for lower numbered ropers who can't compete at ropings like the BFI."
John Paboojean 1999
"This roping makes it possible for all of us amateurs to have a chance at the "big time" so to speak, or at least to imagine just for a little while what it must be like to off the porch where the big dogs are. I don't mind telling you, it's cool."
Kenny Phillips 1998
"My son and I were fortunate and blessed enough to win the average. We each received a sizeable amount of money and each a saddle that any cowboy would be proud to ride. To win any roping is an honor, but to win a roping as prestigious as the Reno Rodeo Team Roping, ltd. is something we will cherish the rest of our lives."
Richard Affonso and Richie Affonso 1998
