TRAVIS NYE, ROPING CHAMPION
Comments on the October 8, 2017 Camp IOU newsletter.

“The roping was the Wrangler National Team Roping Finals. I have roped at the finals two other times, but have never had any luck. This is the largest payout I have received for an event. The horse I rode is a 9 year old mare that I bought about 2 months ago. She does everything right so it makes my part easy. Team roping is a sport that allows you to get away from the grind of the work week or day. You have to be focused and in the moment, much like golf. It’s also one of the few hobbies that will actually pay for itself if your lucky.” – Travis Nye

FROM ACROSS THE POND
Re: Afternoon Tea at the Jersey Lilly 2016
Very many thanks for sharing this review – together with photos – of an astounding tea party. I was deeply impressed with the staging of the event and the trouble to which the ladies had gone to make it so special.

In Victorian and Edwardian times, the milliners of London created the most fabulous hats for ladies. Actresses led the fashions and not just the wealthy appearing in the Royal Enclosure at the Ascot Races.

I noted the beautiful tea services being used and the decorum of the event. Most impressive coming from our cousins over the pond!!!! At least some people appreciate the living standards and life style of a bygone age.

Please let the sentiments and admiration of a Brit be known to those who organised and attended this splendid function.
Warm regards as always.

MUSINGS FROM THE PRAIRIE
“My great uncle was Vern Thomason from Jordan area; since he also raised sheep we assume he may have taken the wool to Ingomar for shipping. We had some contact with him long ago, before he died; and we were able to go out to the old ranch with permission from the current owner (about forty years ago now). He told a story to my youngest brother, about a man who murdered someone in the area; and the law was going to be some days away at that time…Read more

LINDA LOU: Although Owen Badgett does not do email we got Peggy’s story to him by phone. And we will ask around for more information about the sheepherders that frequented Ingomar, and share with readers. Thanks Peggy!

“I knew Owen years ago when I lived in Miles City. I still have a poetry book that he autographed for me. Its in a box but I still have it! Owen used to come down to the Hole In The Wall where a bunch of us girls worked and he would come down and say hey and hang out for a bit.:) I hope he had a good turn-out at the Museum last night.” – Stephani S-C.

6th Annual Ingomar Ranch Rodeo

Gather yourselves up and come on over to the Sixth Annual Ingomar Ranch Rodeo and Big Loop event, Sat., Sept. 5th, at the rodeo arena in Ingomar, MT. It is a Git ‘er Done, guys, gals or mixed team event that will keep you on the edge of your seat, as you grab a bite of your smoked roast beef sandwich, a sip of cold beer or lemonade, and hang on fer the ride! It is a day of fun for the whole family.

SIXTH ANNUAL INGOMAR RANCH RODEO AND BIG LOOP Labor Day WEEKEND, Sat. Sept. 5th, 2020

It begins at 9:00AM, with a rules meeting, followed with the Calcutta, where attendees can put their money on a favorite team. Cowhands will then get busy roping, sorting, penning, milking, bucking and whatever else it takes to get the job done to become the high point Ingomar Ranch Rodeo 2020 Champions. The final two events, Team sorting and Ranch broncs will also be Calcutta’d just before those events. Prizes, money and pride go to the winning team. Not to mention a Top Hand and Top Horse award presented at the close of the day. And there will be fun things for youngsters to do as well.

Announcer and cowhand Andrew Johnson, who knows the ins and outs of Ranch Rodeo, will keep you entertained as he presents facts (perhaps sprinkled with fiction), noting the finer points of the competitors’ style, and interesting techniques that might (accidentally) pop up during the day. Just like any ranching activity, surprises are the norm. “Top hands are top hands, be they guys, gals, or mixed teams,” added Ingomar Rodeo Club Director Donald John Cameron, “They get the job done. You will see great horsemanship, horses and livestock handling ability during the Ingomar Ranch Rodeo.”  Stock contractors Pat Cremer and Shane Vaira are providing the wild cows, steers, and bucking broncs respectively. In fact, folklore has it that the stock can’t wait to give each cowhand a definite run for their money at Ingomar. “The broncs will be on the lookout to spoil a cowboy’s day,” smiled cowboy poet and Ingomar resident Owen Badgett. The Ingomar arena is also sporting two new bucking chutes thanks to a grant from the Community Foundation of Northern Rosebud County.

One of Ingomar Ranch Rodeo’s previous events included a buckskin horse (that was NOT in the bronc event) bucking his rider off on the way to roping a steer. Ropes got crossed, steers were pretty much dumfounded, and the crowd was on their feet cheering. Competition is the name of the game as teams also compete to participate in Tery, MT at the Eastern Montana Ranch Rodeo Finals, Saturday, Sept. 12th. (??)

Saturday night features a Big Loop roping event, where cowhands work to rope steers while avoiding roping themselves and passersby. “There is a lot going on when you are winding up 18ft loops,” added Ingomar Rodeo Club President Howard Newman. Crowds are encouraged to duck if an errant loop comes their way.

For great grub, be sure to stop by the rodeo club cook shack for a smoked roast beef sandwich or dinner. For a cold beer, visit the beer booth, open all day Sat.  For more info call Alice Cameron at 406-358-2255. Tickets for the event are $10/adults, $5/7-12 years, 6 & under/free. 

We will observe Governor’s directive for attendees wearing masks. See ya there for a fun Labor Day weekend.

Special Delivery Ingomar

SPECIAL DELIVERY INGOMAR
May, 2020

Donald John and Alice Cameron recently came up with an Ingomar ‘Meals on Wheels’ effort for Sunday Supper.

Alice, and family – her grandson Cody was visiting for the day – delivered a full-fledged Spaghetti extravaganza to everyone in town Sunday. Recipients included Pam and Nick Finelli, Karen and Mike Stroh, Owen Badgett, Linda Lou Crosby and Hart Broesel (and their friend Paul who has been visiting since before this all began), Emily Olson and Morris Ware, and Susie and Calvin Webber. “I think Alice should start a restaurant!” said Hart Broesel, as the spaghetti, green beans and surprise desert disappeared in a flash! 

Alice and family quickly handed off the food, Ingomar’s version of “curbside” delivery….although Ingomar has no curbsides of course….a few errant cows might serve as guides..and you can imagine what’s along the “curb”…. and zipped on their way to the next home. 

Ingomar resident Pam Finelli had recently initiated an Ingomar letter-recipe exchange as she and husband Nick are holed up for the duration. in December, Pam had planned on a monthly Tea or fun meal she talked about during a Christmas Tea at Linda Lou and Hart’s place. Obviously gatherings are out for awhile.

…So Pam had another idea on how to connect with Ingomar folks…Pam’s letter began “Hello Neighbor! We hope this finds everybody healthy and strong.” and continued “Please know that I haven’t forgotten about our Tea Party, and getting together once a month. It’s still the game plan”…and included her recipe for “100 year old casserole”. 

Alice Cameron followed by sending her “Neighbors” letter out, “Hopefully we will do a tea when this is all over and done with – hopefully sooner rather than later.” and included a recipe that “Bud Kramer used a lot”, ‘Bud’s Raisin Cake’. “It is a depression cake,” added Alice. 

“We don’t know about the rodeos, or anything like that right now,” added Alice, “What we do know is we have a wonderful community, and are grateful for that.” All of us are grateful that Alice is such a good cook! Best to all, and take care.

Hart gets delicious special delivery in Ingomar.

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas – Ingomar 2019

When Santa “drops” in to Ingomar MT
and Ridge and Rayna Save the Day

© Linda Lou Crosby Nov 2019

 

‘Twas the Night before Christmas and all through the town

The adults were sacked out, while the kids snuck around

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care…

In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there

 

Owen in his flannels, and Morris in his cap

Had just settled down for a LONG winter’s nap

Ridge and Rayna – the youngsters

Were slinking around

When all of a sudden, there was a large crashing sound!

 

And what to their wondering eyes should appear,

But a present-stuffed sleigh and eight wide-eyed reindeer.

There was a red-faced stout gentleman, not too lively; not so quick

Ridge and Rayna got worried – It was probably St. Nick.

His eyes lost their twinkle, but his cheeks looked pretty merry

And when he laughed at himself, he shook just like jelly.

 

Santa quit laughing as he saw the gifts tossed around

Where the heck had he landed? Where was Ingomar town?

His reindeer were scattered, a lot like the toys

There would be happiness missing for girls and for boys.

As Santa pondered his fate, wondering just what to do

Ridge and Rayna appeared saying “Santa we will help you!”

 

Ridge and Rayna snuck out and tried to wake Owen

They’d need a crowbar to wake him. This could be tough goin’.

“I think we get Mowiss cause he knows what to do.”

And Rayna headed to find Morris’, while Ridge went there too.

They bonked Morris awake, and he sat up quite startled.

They told him their tale.

And he said “Let’s get started!”

 

They rushed back to Santa and gathered the herd.

The reindeer were harnessed without even a word.

Morris stepped up his pace and worked pretty fast,

Rayna and Ridge knew that pace wouldn’t last.

 

They helped Morris gather gifts; they helped with the sled,

And Santa soon realized, he had nothing to dread.

Santa’s left arm was sore, so he needed help with the trip.

It would be a long night, and they couldn’t chance a slip.

They looked over at Morris, asleep on his feet

Who would help Santa?  The kids didn’t miss a beat.

 

Rayna gathered the lines, like she’d seen Morris do.

Ridge made himself ready to back up their crew.

Santa gave directions as they circled the globe,

And Ridge tossed out presents, while Rayna kept control.

Rayna and Ridge giggled a lot, they were having a blast and their help hit the spot. They were home in a Jiffy at the very break of dawn

Alice and Donald John never knew they were gone.

 

They handed lines off to Santa, who felt pretty great

They had delivered the gifts, and not one was late.

Santa’s arm felt terrific, and it was bedtime for his crew.

Morris still stood up sleeping, but those kids knew what to do.

They sleep walked Morris home, and hugged him quite tight

And Santa was ready to take off in flight.

 

They heard Santa exclaim as he flew out of sight,

“Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!!”

 

– The End –

 

 

 

Ingomar Open Rodeo 2019 Wow

Ingomar Open Rodeo – Wow!

From the time the first kid rounded a barrel to the final bull ride, the 2019 Ingomar Open Rodeo on Saturday July 27, was a wild and wonderful experience.  It was good old family fun – and mighty good times. Grace Poehler came all the way from Morehead, Minnesota for her first time in Ingomar, and first time ever at a rodeo. “I have never been to a rodeo in my life,” said Poehler, “And this was great! I live 30 minutes from a town that holds a rodeo every year, and I am definitely going to the next one when I go home.”  After Poehler had seen bronc riders, bull riders and the rough stock flaunting their best, she added, “And I am definitely not cut out to actually do this!”

“It was great seeing all the families, old friends and new folks in the crowd here,” added Ingomar Rodeo Club Director Donald John Cameron. “The participants, our announcer Deb Greenough, our many volunteers and sponsors – well, without them we just wouldn’t have a rodeo.” And what a rodeo was had.

Bareback entry Austin Quinlan, the first bronc rider of the day, bucked out of the chute accompanied by a huge burst of pink powder, which he said signified what his cousin’s new baby would be – a girl (a boy would have been blue). Quinlan then proceeded to deliver an inspired “buckaroo ballet” for the crowd. 

“We had record entries for the last 20 years,” added Rodeo Club secretary Alice Cameron. “ There were over 20 bronc riders (Saddle bronc, ranch rodeo bronc, bareback bronc), 15 Bull Riders (Combined open and kids), 18 Lady Barrel Racers, 55 Team Roping teams (Combined open and mixed), and of course Ladies Breakaway ropers and pole benders, calf ropers, and then of course the Buckaroo Bounce.”  The Buckaroo Bounce is an Ingomar special event that has bouncers (of all ages) grab colorful balls and bounce their way from the crows’ nest to the finish line in front of the crowd. There were three heats of 6 bouncers, and Turk Greenough won the final go round. Being the gentleman he is, he shared the $100 prize money with the other two young girls that competed in the final round.

Ingomar Rodeo Club members (7 at last count) do it all, from set up to clean up. Rodeo Club president Howard Newman and his wife Johnna Newman introduced His and Hers outhouses a couple years ago….and as you might imagine, they need to be emptied…. Nuff said….although, at times, Johnna (who runs the beer booth and honchoed gathering sponsor banners around the arena) has offered a few choice words.

The cook shack fed folks all day with terrific burgers and Polish hot dogs, and the Jersey Lilly offered their famous barbecue and a street dance to complete the day.

As dawn broke on Sunday morning, many outfits, and people in their bedrolls woke to the smells of Alice Cameron, Emily Olson (cook shack honcho) and Kim Erikson cooking breakfast for hungry overnighters. You can find out who won each event on our Ingomar Rodeo Club Facebook page.

“There were so many great events,” added Ingomar resident Hart Broesel, “The rodeo just delivered every minute.”  And the next event the rodeo club is delivering is the “anything can happen and it usually does” Ingomar Ranch Rodeo on Labor Day weekend…events will be Ladies and Kids teams on Saturday, and Open teams Sunday – the winning open team gains entry into the Eastern Montana Ranch Rodeo Finals in September and the Nile in October. “It’s always a hoot,” added Broesel. Don’t miss it!  Follow us on Facebook.

“Cowboy Tales”: A Western Treat at the Jersey Lilly

“Cowboy Tales”: A Western Treat at the Jersey Lilly

From the chuck wagon dinner (roast beef, baked potatoes, homemade apple sauce and pumpkin bars), to a homespun atmosphere, to the most wonderful western entertainment, the 2018 Jersey Lilly “Cowboy Tales” event was top notch. Members of the audience hailed from as far away as Memphis, Tennessee, Kalispell, Jordan, and Baker, MT to closer in from places like Forsyth, home town of Deb Anderson, “We had a great time last night, food was great, music was great……so worth the drive “

It was definitely a full evening of events. After great grub, June Nygren (co-owner of the Jersey Lilly with Boots Kope) sent the crowd out, while a select few set up the campfire (which Boots had created) and chairs in a horseshoe shape for the audience to gather round the entertainers.

Sandy Matheny Fennessy

The melodious Sandy Matheny Fennessy, from Whitefish, MT, drew the guests in with a beautiful rendition of “The Campfire Waltz”, followed by a song she wrote about Ingomar and the Jersey Lilly, “Two Old Cowboys and Three Guitars”. Sandy sings with a band called “Cowboy Country and the Gold Dust Girls” and if you find out they are coming to your town – go see them!

 

 

 

 

 

Uncle Vinny Royer

Uncle Vinny Royer

Sandy introduced Vince “Uncle Vinny” Royer who put everybody on the edge of their seats with his rendition of Lloyd M. Gerber’s cowboy poem, “It’s a matter of Taste” …..if you weren’t there and look that poem up, you will see why whenever Uncle Vinny started to speak for the rest of the evening….everybody was listening and laughing. Bertha Gadabout – the Ingomar K.MU.K. news reporter brought a lot of levity to the gathering as she shared some news stories about goings on about town. Stories like ”The Late Ball Playing Raccoon”, “Arlin Sanders’ Shocking Behavior”, and “The Confrontation at the Dump”….as Bertha puts it, “You just can’t make this stuff up!”

 

Western singer Almeda Bradshaw

Almeda Bradshaw

For this year’s “Cowboy Tales”, straight from performing during the NILE, singer-songwriter Almeda Bradshaw shared her program, offered through Humanities Montana, “Into the Sunset: The Forgotten Cowgirl Singers”. As Bradshaw explains, “Dale Evan’s success as Queen of the West is owed to a century of cowgirls in show business. From Mary Ann Whittaker’s horseback exhibitions in the 1850s, to the Wild West Shows and vaudeville acts of the early 1900s, to the pioneer radio and recording artists of the 1920s, forgotten women entertainers wore buckskins and boots while yodeling their way into America’s heart.” And Almeda wowed the crowd with wonderful songs from these entertainers, and added some of her other repertoire as well. Bradshaw is not only a grand singer-songwriter, but a terrific musician. Bradshaw had the evening’s guests traveling back in time to the old west, helping her yodel, and pretty much being mesmerized by the talent she brought to the evening. Bradshaw led the audience and the cast (except for Bertha Gadabout who retreated to a corner and wrote news stories) in singing, “Happy Trails” at the close of the show.

Then Marsha Kuykendall (lucky lady) and Glen Simenson (lucky guy) won special door prizes. When all was said and done, it was just a darned great evening. According to Ingomar Postmaster LaDawna Eriksen, “For a fun filled night, the Jersey Lilly ‘s Cowboy Tales was the way to go!  The food, songs, and stories were something we will never forget.  The campfire that Boots put together was just awesome! Sandy, Almeda, Uncle Vinnie, and Bertha Gadabout were very entertaining. We are already looking forward to next year!!! “By the way,” LaDawna added,” the Jersey Lilly tea is in early June right? Don’t want to miss that either…….”

Cowboy Tales 2018

Saturday October 27th, the Jersey Lilly in Ingomar, MT, presents “Cowboy Tales.”

Cowboy Tales 2018 at the Jersey Lilly poster

It’s a western music and cowboy yarn-spinning event, with great grub, great talent and good old-fashioned western entertainment. This year’s event features an extraordinary talent, singer-songwriter Almeda Bradshaw. Among many honors, Bradshaw was recently recognized by the Academy of Western Artists with a nomination for the 2018 Western Music Female Entertainer, and was the 2016 Cowboy Idol Winner – at the Columbia River Cowboy Gathering, Kennewick, WA. Bradshaw is a consummate western entertainer. Her music is spell binding and her stories deliver you directly to the old west.

For this year’s “Cowboy Tales”, Bradshaw brings her program, offered through Montana Conversations; Community Programs by Humanities Montana, “Into the Sunset: The Forgotten Cowgirl Singers” to Ingomar.  As Bradshaw explains,  “Dale Evan’s success as Queen of the West is owed to a century of cowgirls in show business. From Mary Ann Whittaker’s horseback exhibitions in the 1850s, to the Wild West Shows and vaudeville acts of the early 1900s, to the pioneer radio and recording artists of the 1920s, meet the forgotten women entertainers who wore buckskins and boots while yodeling their way into America’s heart.”

Western yarn spinner Vincent Royer, raised in Eastern Montana, also joins the show. Royer, aka Uncle Vinny, a writer, an educator, and a tall tale enthusiast will be sharing yarns, like the time he visited  “Ole Mad Jacks and encountered that Darned Ole Dog”. Always colorful, slightly irreverent, and pretty much hilarious, Uncle Vinny is anything but predictable. You’ll have to see him to appreciate how far he might go out on a limb, taking audiences right down that rosy path.

Add to this amazing evening, Sandy Matheny Fennessy, melodious western singer/songwriter and guitarist from Whitefish, MT (Cowboy Country and the Gold Dust Girls band), and you have the perfect entertainment mix. Sandy performs her blend of country and folk influenced by her Scottish and Irish background, peppered with a dash of German heritage. Mix that with the sparkle of her personality, her eastern Montana connections, and her savvy down home delivery, this will be a performance you don’t want to miss!

And then there’s the NEWS from KMUK ,  “The Muck”, the local Ingomar Radio station. A KMUK reporter, who changes her name to protect the innocent (her), will be reporting about goings on in and around Ingomar.  With stories like “The Late Ball Playing Racoon”, “The Confrontation at the Dump”, and  “Arlin Sanders’ Shocking Behavior”, the audience will be amazed and amused. “You can’t make that stuff up!” added our intrepid reporter.

Join us for “Cowboy Tales”, Sat. October 27th, at the Jersey Lilly in Ingomar. Doors open at 5:30PM for dinner and the show. Tickets are $25.00 ea. Call 406-358-2278 for reservations (which are recommended) and more information. See ya there! Photos Almeda Bradshaw, Sandy Matheny Fennessy, Vincent “Uncle Vinny” Royer.

2018 Jersey Lilly Old-Fashioned Tea

Lovely ladies who attended the 5th Annual Old-Fashioned Tea at the Jersey Lilly, Sunday, June 3, 2018.

Lovely ladies who attended the 5th Annual Old-Fashioned Tea at the Jersey Lilly, Sunday, June 3, 2018.

Jersey Lilly Old Fashioned Tea a “FANtastic Success!” 

Fans fluttered and lovely feathered hats floated in as ladies and younger ones from Miles City, Whitefish, Forsyth, Hysham, Custer, Rosebud, Melstone and Ingomar arrived at the fifth annual Lilly Langtry Old Fashioned Ladies Tea at the Jersey Lilly in Ingomar, Montana. Then, of course, there were the motorcycles. Four ladies on their ‘bikes’ pretty much roared in, and calmly took their place at the hitching post across from the Jersey. They unpacked their feathered hats, grabbed their fans supplied by none other than Ingomar’s post-mistress LaDawna Erikson, and took their place at the daintily decorated tables ready for a spot of tea.
 
It was a grand event. Jersey Lilly co-owner June Nygren had once again outdone herself with tasty treats, an assortment of teas, a pitcher of lemonade, lovely settings and a welcoming atmosphere that encouraged all to enjoy themselves for a fashionable afternoon reminiscent of high tea in the old west. It was certainly an eclectic group of tea-goers. The youngest was a nine-month old boy, Corben Koerper, accompanied by his mother, Salina from Rosebud. Other youngsters included Rylee (8 yrs) and Colt (5 yrs) Ogren, accompanied by their caretaker Tanya from Hysham/Custer. And, of course, Maggie Propp (8 yrs).
June shared some history of Lilly Langtry and Judge Roy Bean, and gave a copy of the story to each guest. Amorette Allison, who enjoyed a run away victory in the best fan contest with her peacock feather fan, is a historian from Miles City. Amorette engaged tea party guests with the proper way to signal one’s intentions with a fan. Guests were trying out the various techniques of fan etiquette as she read the list. It got a bit wild for a moment, especially at the motorcycle table.
 
Lori Tyner rode her Harley Sportster from Miles City, with her feather-bedecked hat safely in her saddlebags. Who were these gals? And how did they learn about the tea? Apparently LaDawna also rides a motorcycle (although not that day). She was in Harlem when she got a text from her friends looking for a fun place to ride on Sunday. “I just told them about the tea,” said LaDawna, who already had her red, white and blue fan, “and they were in. I’m riding my motorcycle to the tea next year,” she added. LaDawna realized they (which included her friend Cori Goddard who followed the motorcycles in her car) needed fans. So she zipped over to Havre and got a bunch of different fans at the Dollar Store. When asked what our motorcycle riders called themselves, “The Outcasts” (OuTKasTs and friends) was the reply, followed by gales of laughter.
 
Young Rylee Ogren decorated her own purple hat. “I like to add something new to my hat every year”, said the tea going veteran. Rylee also scored one of the grand prizes, a fabulous basket.
 
“I want to be sure every young person that comes to the tea goes away with a prize,” said June. And each one did, not to mention just about everybody else. June also shared that this event was the most time consuming one to prepare for of all she does at the Jersey Lilly. June also offered a special raffle for a gorgeous doll her grandmother had made for her. And already was thinking about next year. “I will begin planning right away for next year,” added June. LaDawna was already thinking of some fun things to donate to June for gifts next year. “This is my first Jersey Lilly tea,” said LaDawna, “It is so much fun. The food is so good. I am not going to miss one of them!”
 
Camaraderie continued throughout the event as tea guests shared tea stories from the past. Connie Brown in her fabulous feathered hat and fringed dress was tossing out ideas for next year’s features. Connie has been to just about every tea. “You could have shawls,” said Connie. And ladies chimed in with other thoughts as they departed the Jersey for an outside photo. It was fun. It was special. It was magical. The Jersey Lilly’s Lilly Langtry Old Fashioned Ladies Tea will live on in the hearts of those who attended until next year.
