The Chadron State College rodeo team recently held their annual Black Tie Calf Fry fundraiser in Chadron, Neb., at the Motel 6 convention center.

The event was an evening of dining and dancing which included a silent and live auction. Two hundred seventy-five people turned out to partake and support the team.

The 21-member team along with their coach Dustin Luper, were responsible for gathering the auction items; some of which were made by the members themselves. The vast variety offered something for everyone, including original artwork, tack, gift baskets, boots, vests, quilts, pillows, jewelry and picture frames as well as services such as spa massages, a stud fee and horse training.

The meal of calf fries (Rocky Mountain Oysters), roast beef, potatoes, salads, cold drink and dessert was provided by Feik’s 1-20 in Chadron. Owner Chad Feik said, “The great roast beef and calf fries were prepared by Jerry Termes and family who own Termes Market in Hay Springs.” Seven deep-fat fryers were manned by Feik’s crew and the Termes family for roughly two hours to keep the serving trays full. The rodeo team members filled plates and kept the lemonade and tea glasses full.

After the meal Dustin Luper thanked graduating team members, Kali Olson of Buffalo, S.D., and Del Kraupie of Bridgeport, Neb., for their participation in rodeo for CSC and for their outstanding leadership for the team.

Luper also presented a plaque of appreciation to George French to honor him and his wife Kim for making their ‘Blue Moon’ arena and horse boarding facility in Chadron, available to CSC rodeo kids at a very affordable price for over 25 years.

A lively auction was conducted after the presentations by Kraupie’s Real Estate & Auctioneers out of Bridgeport, Neb. This is the fourth year the Kraupie family has donated their skills and time to this event. Darrell and son Del shared the auctioneering duties while daughter Kristen and wife Alecia provided the clerking. Former CSC rodeo team member Lane Marrow provided a helping hand by calling bids.

Bidders stepped up and spent a total of $7,331 in support of the rodeo team. Coach Luper said, “The money will be used to provide $25 and a room to each member for every rodeo they compete in. The balance will go toward a roping chute and practice equipment. We will also hold a year-end team party with a golfing competition.”

As soon as the auction concluded; team members cleaned off tables and moved them and chairs to make room for the wooden dance floor that was brought in by sections. Country band Ropes and Roses provided the live music as a large portion of the crowd remained and danced until midnight.

Luper’s final comment on the evening was, “I had a goal for this event but it came out way above and beyond that. I was astounded at how everyone was more than glad to support the team.”
