By Alicia Higbee Indian Valley Editor For many local cowgirls, becoming a rodeo queen is long:cherished dream. For a few, including Emily Vu- kich, of Cromberg, the dream has become reality. "I've wanted to be a rodeo queen for as long as I can remember," Emily said during an earlier inter- view. Emily's dream came true Wednesday, July 4, during the Silver Buckle Rodeo in Taylorsville. The competition is open to all young women of Plumas County, whether or not they have a horse of their own. Competing with her this year were two Greenville girls, Amanda Kemmer and Jessica Larsen. Amanda is a first-genera- tion cowgirl and is now serving her second year as a Silver Buckle Rodeo Princess. Jessica, who has dreamed of being a rodeo queen since attending her first rodeo at age 10, will also be princess for a year. There are no losers in the queen competition, and all three girls had very close scores, according to Indian Valley Riding and Roping Club organizers Lisa Smith and Renee Baker. The girls were judged equally for horsemanship, general knowledge about horses and the county, pub- lic sPeaking and conduct. Photo by Alicia Higbee Emily Vuklch, of Cromberg, was crowned as the 2001 Silver Buckle Rodeo Queen during the Fourth of July rodeo event. She scored 97 out of a possi- ble 100 points In a competition that included horsemanship, public speaking and knowledge of the county, among other criteria. An impartial judge, Jessi- ca Olsen, was brought from Reno to judge horseman- ship skills during the com- petition at the rodeo grounds Thursday, June 28. Olsen has experience with horse shows and queen contests. An anonymous judge was also found to watch how the girls conducted themselves in public for the days be- tween the contest and the rodeo. "They all worked very hard at it," Baker said of the girls' competition. The dream is not over though, for the girls will travel as royalty together for the next year. They will be conducting fund-raisers and seeking donations to pay for classy western outfits to wear when they compete as a team in other parades and represent the club in other rodeo grand entries. While representing the county and club, the girls will also be promoting the annual Silver Buckle Rodeo. Baker encourages girls who are thinking about competing for a rodeo queen crown to call her or Smith to talk about what it takes to prepare them- selves. This was Baker's first year with the club's queen contest, although she has organized contests in Ore- gon before. She hopes to help other girls realize that their dreams really can come true.
