Employee of the Month

Mary Courtney
The one-time Miss Colfax of Denver, Colorado (1936), Mary Courtney is probably the most fascinating of our staff.

The oldest of nine, mother of eight and grandmother 10 times over, Mary's family life is only the beginning. After growing up in Ogden, Utah and then moving on to northern California, Mary's fascinating life of adventure and and aesthetics started with her first entreprenuerial venture, development of the historic Old Moraga Cookhouse, a place for "shopping and lunch for ladies."


Rodeo 101
Bull Riding

Bull Riding is the most dangerous and perhaps the most popular of rodeo sports. Cowboys use a thickly braided rope with an attached cowbell that applies weight and allows the rope to fall off safely from the bull at the ride's end. A sticky rosin is used on the rope to increase the cowboy's grip on it. The bull rope wraps around the bull, and the rider wraps the remainder of it around his hand, which secures him to the bull.

Eight seconds on a ton of bucking red meat requires enormous courage and mental and physical preparation to stay balanced, flexible, and coordinated. A score in the 90's is considered good.

The whole event demonstrates the dynamics of courage, from the cowboys to the bullfighters or rodeo clown and barrel men who assist in the cowboys safe escape after the ride. While their comical antics entertain the crowds, these are the men a cowboy depends on when he's in trouble. Their cowboy-saving techniques combine shear courage, great agility, and flawless ability.
