A pair of Nebraska ropers took home first place at the second B-S Productions roping event held at the Pine Bluffs Arena on Friday.

Rex Stauffer and J.R. West, both of Harrisburg, Nebraska, took home the top honors for the night, said Abby Cross, a partner in B-S Productions with Brent Lerwick and Mike Shelit.

The "10x10 Round Robin," which saw 10 heelers and 10 headers all getting a chance to compete with each other in teams, was the second of a series being put on by B-S Productions.

In addition to Friday's event, a performance was held June 26. Other events are scheduled for July 24, Aug. 7, 21 and 28 and Sept. 4, 11 and 18. The series will end with a finals round on Sept. 25, Cross said.

The roping series was created to provide something to do for those interested in competing and those who just want to watch some rodeo, Cross said.

"It's a new thing," she said. "There's no Friday night rodeos and we thought something needed to be going on."

Competitors are coming to Pine Bluffs from across the region, she added.

"They're coming from all over," she said. "We've got a few guys out of Nebraska, Goshen County and here locally as well. They're coming from a little bit of everywhere."

Each event is open to the first 10 headers and heelers who enter and entries can be submitted by texting Cross at (307) 401-0118.

Entries will also be accepted at the Pine Bluffs Arena beginning at 6:30 p.m. the night of each event. Roping begins at 7 p.m.
