Pt. Reyes Western Weekend and Cow Flop Drop Fundraiser

Located in Point Reyes Station, the Western Weekend Parade is an opportunity for our riders to experience the thrill of riding down Main Street in front of a cheering crowd. In addition to the parade, there is a Western weekend "Queen" contest, a 4H fair, a BBQ, a chili cook-off contest, and Halleck Creek Ranch's very own Cow Flop Drop fundraiser. Those interested in taking part in the parade should sign up with Brenda.

The “Cow Flop Drop” fundraiser is a unique event that raises funds for the therapeutic horseback riding program for people with disabilities at Halleck Creek Ranch. Here's how it works: Each ticket purchased has a number which corresponds to a numbered square located on the official Cow Flop Drop grid. At the start of the event, a calf is allowed onto the grid, and walks freely upon the grid until it “flops” (poops). The Cow Flop Drop judge will determine which square, or squares, the flop is on, and the winning ticket number(s) will be announced. The winner wins $1000; winners will be notified promptly. You do not need to be present to win.

Ticket prices this year are $10 per square (up from $5), but you stand the chance of winning $1,000 this year (up from $500)! Your chances are good: Only 550 squares are available. Tickets can be purchased online by credit card or Paypal, or at the ranch by cash or check.

Ticket prices are as follows:

  • $10 for 1 ticket
  • $50 for 6 tickets (1 bonus ticket)
  • $100 for 13 tickets (3 bonus tickets)
  • $250 for 29 tickets (4 bonus tickets)
  • $500 for 60 tickets (10 bonus tickets)
