Gary Williams was a very long-time member of DSRA. He held the office of treasurer for the organization for many, many years. He loved the country and western lifestyle and loved being a member of DSRA. Donating much of his time, especially to our bi-annual rodeos, Gary was brilliant, funny and a delight to have around. We miss him terribly; our members made a unanimous decision to hold an annual Gary Williams Memorial Jackpot fundraiser whose funds are to be included in the total rodeo fund which donates 100% of the profits to our member-selected charities.

Rodeo in the Rock (RITR) 2017 is expected to draw between 300-500 entrants and attendees from all over the United States and Canada. This is our 14th rodeo held here in central Arkansas and has grown incredibly since it was first instituted. We within DSRA strive hard to put on one of the best rodeos within the IGRA circuit, a fact which is repeated over and over by those individuals who attend every time we hold one. Gary was a huge part of the success of our previous rodeos.

Our charities for RITR 2017, Out of the Woods Animal Rescue and Center for Artistic Revolution, were voted on by DSRA members. Out of the Woods is a 501C-3 Charity who rescues animals of all kinds, finds foster homes until medically and physically able to be places with families. The Center for Artistic Revolution is a child/young adult home for individuals not in a great environment after "coming out". They create a safe haven for these individuals through the arts and literature.

We are accepting donations for added money for this Barrel Race to make it even more interesting for contestants and that means more Charity Money in Gary's name. Contact Sandy Bidwell to help!

Please come out and support DSRA's RITR 2017 and our charities at our 2nd Annual Gary Williams Memorial Jackpot at the State Fair Equestrian Center on April 28, 2017.
