J IW WEDNBDAV, SEPTmBER 14, 2011  Trick roper to perform at cookout Nowata's First Church of God, 408 South Pine Street, welcomes the community to its Second Annual Chuck Wagon Cookout at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 1. There will be free food, fun and entertainment for all ages. Come early andenjoy the chuck wagon cooking, games and wagon rides, with live music all afternoon. Cowboy cartoonist Danny Rexwinkle will be drawing throughout the afternoon. Amazing trick roper Marry Tipton, the Oklahoma Kid, is the featured performer. More than 100 years of fam- ily history have prepared the Oklahoma Kid for his career in entertainment. The Kid's father, grand- father and great-grandfather worked in the Wild West Show business, with names like Pawnee Bill, Buffalo Bill and Geronimo. The Kid grew up in Ponca City, home of the historic 101 Ranch. He is re- lated to Will Rogers through his great-grandmother, Delia McSpadden. Performance genes, a witty outlook and care for his fel- low man have trickled down through the generations, and the Kid is continuing his family's legacy. Like his relative Will Rogers, the Kid uses an uplifting say- ing in his public performances: "It's not always how fast you run orhow high you climb; it's how high you bounce.;; Tipton has been roping in one form or another for more than 30 years. He has been invited to perform in a wide variety of venues around the world. Even George W. Bush proved to be a fan when in 2009 he invited Marty (Kid) and his family to attend the July 4 cel- ebration in Woodward. The Kid was riding a horse before he could walk and at 6 he was in the rodeo arena. He later we fl, ..5,profes- signal team roper and rough stock rider. He learned trick roping from his father and grandfather, and then went on to be professionally trained at the 101 Ranch. Submitted photo Trick roper Marty Tipton, the Oklahoma Kid, will per- form at the First Church of God's Second Annual Chuck Wagon Cookout. Because he grew up in the center of a Wild West show legacy, he knows the heritage is his to keep alive. From his relatives, he heard first- hand stories about the likes of Pawnee Bill, Buffalo Bill and Annie Oakley, and he was always surrounded by original photographs of Wild West per- formers. i-ie tells the story of Gerofi- imo, who eventually rode in a parade with the president and shot his last buffalo from an automobile. According to the Kid, during shows Geronimo would offer $1,000 to any man who would agree to be scalped; of course no one volunteered. Then there's the story of An- nie Oakley, a trick shooter who was the first woman to win a shooting competition against a man. The Kid also recalls stories of the 101 Ranch in Ponca City, once the largest ranch in the United States, where he was raised. He is working on his second book telling the hidden stories ships.
