Due to the adverse conditions in Black Rock City (high winds, powdery surface), Buringman will be sponsored by the National Reined Cow Horse Association in '07

and will be held at the Reno Livestock Events Center ... livestock/

"With 35,000 square feet of exhibit space, (and) a climate-controlled indoor arena..." the Events center is the perfect place to host your Theme Camp
or Village. you can also... "Plan your own private rodeo or have a team building, steer decorating contest."

See ya there !!!

Laura Ingalls Wilder's book "Farmer Boy" contains a pretty good description of how to teach a team of oxen to drive, so go snap it up quick!

This event requires a two-person team. One member stands ten feet from the chute gate holding the end of a 25 foot rope, which is looped around the steer's horns. The other team member stands 40 feet from the chute and has a 24 inch long ribbon. When the chute gate opens, the team must bring the steer out and across the ten foot line. One team member tries to tie the ribbon on the steer's tail while the other team member tries to remove the rope from the steer's horns.
