OCA's Range Round-Up to Move Locations
While the Mission Remains the Same


OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla., January 19, 2015 - The Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association's (OCA) Range Round-Up Committee is proud to announce that the Lazy E Arena near Guthrie, Okla. will be the new home of the OCA Range Round-Up.   The 31st annual event is scheduled for August 28 and 29, 2015.


"We are excited about the possibilities that this move will offer," said Tim Drummond, OCA Range Round-Up Chairman.  "The Lazy E is under new ownership and management and has made many improvements recently.  As a committee we feel it will work well for us and be a good change.  In addition, the Lazy E wants to help us with our mission."


OCA Range Round-Up set out on a mission back in 1985 to provide family entertainment, promote beef and raise money for charity.  The selected charity has varied over the years, but 2014 marked the 18th year in a row that the selected charity has been the Children's Miracle Network.  In that time, the OCA has donated more than $404,000.00 and formed a strong connection to the charity and its work.


"We are very proud to have the OCA's Range Round-Up back at its original home, the Lazy E Arena.  This event and it's spectators are a perfect fit for us," says Dan Wall, Lazy E General Manager.  "In addition, we are proud to partner with OCA in producing this prestigious event and supporting such a worthy cause as the Children's Miracle Network."


The event will still consist of twelve ranch teams consisting of 'real ranch' cowboys that compete in 6 different events that mirror many of the activities they do on the ranch. 


"The competition is fierce, but the cowboys don't take home much more than bumps and bragging rights when it's all said and done," said Drummond with a grin.  "Knowing that we are raising money to for children's medical research is an incentive and makes competing worth the while."
