Patrick is a native of Denver, Colorado and served a stint with "Up With People".
Patrick discovered the IGRA Rodeo circuit in 1988, joined CGRA and found his "NEW" home. He loved the parties, the "Family" and even Rodeo. He began competing at the OKC Rodeo in 1990. It is interesting that his first tough injury, a broken collar bone, also would be at an OKC Rodeo.
Patrick was the IGRA Trustee from Colorado for 1991 and 1992. In 1993 he became the Administrative Assistant for IGRA and also began his long stint as a scorekeeper. He was certified in 1994 and is a favorite out on the Rodeo circuit.
This 2003 Finals Rodeo will be Patrick's 8th consecutive time to serve as the Final's certified scorekeeper. At home in Colorado, Patrick has been RMRR Director and an assistant the past 3 years.
While there are many great stories about Patrick on the Rodeo circuit, they are not the type that we can print. His wild sense of humor and quick witt are the reason that the stories are so credible!
As Patrick wraps up 10 years in the office of IGRA, it is a nice time to say, "Thank you and we salute you as the 2003 Finals Rodeo Grand Marshal"!!
