Mother Lode Round Up
Sonora, CA ... The Tuolumne County Sheriffs Posse and Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association hosted a perfect Mother Lode Round-up weekend in Sonora, CA last Saturday and Sunday. Luke Branquinho broke the Mother Lode Arena record in steer wrestling on Satruday night. The former world champion is currently in first place in the steer wrestling for this PRCA season. Natalie and Cody Munsel, a husband and wife team from Tuolumne, CA took home buckles and prize money from the always exciting calf scramble.
The Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Posse is a community volunteer organization. This year marks the 61st anniversary of the Tuolumne County Sheriff's Posse who has produced the Round-Up in a rewarding partnership with the Tuolumne County business community. The Posse has an active membership of 40, plus dozens of past active, honorary and associate members. Two members of the original 1948 Posse are still active. The Posse parades in more than 10 cities throughout California promoting Tuolumne county. With its Community focus, the Posse provides a wide range of volunteer labor and time year round. It provides scholarships for all of our county high schools, sponsors a Boy Scout troop and the Wildcat Wranglers, participates in Sober Graduation, has produced the Cancer Society's Jail & Bail, helped the Visitor's Bureau with the Wild West Film Festival, provides and delivers Christmas toys for disadvantaged families, donates many, many dollars to youths and other charitable causes. And it produces the county's biggest event... the Mother Lode Round-Up Parade and Rodeo!
The Posse Clubhouse on Rawhide Road in Jamestown is a great place for banquets or Community Events and is available for youth groups or other organizations to rent.
