The Milk River Pavilion became the scene of the Rural Communities & Agricultural Neighbors (RCAN) Ranch Rodeo Scramble on Saturday, January 4.

The event was a four-person team event consisting of 21 teams and 14 broncs from North and Eastern Montana.

"Our first event as RCAN was just as amazing as we had hoped," RCAN President Katie Brown said. "Of course it was all a learning experience for us, but overall a great, successful time. We had more of a crowd and participants than we had anticipated, but who can complain about that!"

According to an RCAN social media page, the event paid out over $7,000 to Ranch Rodeo teams and $1300 to Saddle Bronc riders.

Bruckner Ranch, a team consisting of Curt Bruckner, Jett Anderson, Tucker Hould and Dakota Schweers won the champion scramble event with a time of 2:28 (3:20 in long go). Second place went to Salveson Ranch a team consisting of Ken Salveson, Ted Brown, Curt Bruckner, and Matt Mangis who had a time of 2:35 (4:6 in long go). Glasgow Stockyards, a team consisting of Tanner Solberg, Sterling Brown, Chance Hill, and Dakota Gaustad was third with a time of 3:30 (4:42 in long go). Fourth Place went to Clusters a team consisting of Ted Brown, Ken Salveson, Jeremy Pierce and Ross Salsberry who had a time of 3:30 (3:23 long go) and fifth went to Rope N Choke, a team made of Bill Plouffe, Connor Dove, Trenton Delaney and Jake Wade who had a time of 5:22 (4:36 in long go).

RCAN President Brown was appreciative of the event's coordinators and the RCAN committee.

"It takes one heck of a team to pull off events like these," she said. "RCAN looks forward to serving our community and we are happy to have held another successful event!"

According to a social media post by Brown, RCAN is bringing these events to our community for two reasons.

"We want to give back to our community and showcase our heritage, and any profit that is made will go back towards RCAN so we can work towards agricultural and community issues," Brown said. "We want to keep Ag alive and make sure we show our next generation that it is worth fighting for."
