Omak hosts barrel racing

Racing will move to Wednesdays

— The Boots and Saddle Barrel Racing Club put on a doubleheader May 19 in the Stampede Rodeo Arena.

Riders ranging from 3 years old to adult competed in barrels and poles, spokeswoman Karen Zittel said.

“This is a local club that encourages beginning riders or riders with beginning horses by offering an affordable club membership fee and low entry fees,” Zittel said.

“The season is just beginning and new members are always welcome.”

During Sunday racing, four free meals donated by McDonald’s were awarded to those coming closest to randomly drawn times. Winners were Diane Lowell, Zittel, Jodi Nelson and Becca Hawley.

The club maintains a Facebook site under “Boots and Saddle Barrel Racing Club.”

The club switches from Sunday to Wednesday races starting June 12 and June 26.

The arena opens at 5:30 p.m. with times only at 6 p.m. and racing at 7 p.m.

“Spectators are always welcome to come watch this fun event,” Zittel said.
