PLEASANTON, Texas—August 29, 2012— When Winn Cox tried out his friend’s Cactus Nitro rope, he had no idea it would result in the opportunity to rope for two days with Cesar de la Cruz. “I liked that rope so much that I went out and bought some of my own. One of those ropes happened to have a winning tail tag for the Nitro contest!”
The “Let’s Go Rope with Cesar” contest was created to thank customers who are using the new Nitro rope that Cactus developed in conjunction with Cesar de la Cruz. Ropes with specially marked tail tags were distributed to retailers, and customers submitted the winning tags to enter a drawing for prizes.
The contest grand prize was the opportunity to rope with Cesar for two days at an upcoming filming and clinic session for Total Team Roping (www.totalteamroping.com). Winn Cox, an insurance agent in Seguin, Texas, will get to spend those days learning tips from de la Cruz and the other Total Team Roping members, including Clay O’Brien Cooper and Jake Barnes. “I’m looking forward to roping with someone with a ‘younger style’ and getting some recommendations from Cesar on improving my technique and making things easier for my heelers,” states Cox. “After I bought my first Nitro, I haven’t used anything else. I really appreciate that Cactus supports the people who use their products and rope on the weekends.”
Other contest prizes included boxes of Nitro ropes that were won by Isaac Hill of Waxahachie, TX and Garrett Stewart of West Jordan, UT. For more information on the Nitro and other happenings at Cactus Ropes, please visit www.cactusropes.com.
