Ginni & Gerre Mason

A mere 21 years ago this sister team from La Junta, Colorado was asked to help with a National Old Timers Rodeo in Trinidad, Colorado. Needless to say, this began a very long and fulfilling relationship.

Since 1984, the “Girls”, they’re referred to, have been involved with the Seniors in some way; taking entries before the Association had an entry system, timing, and providing secretarial services at Senior rodeos in nine states and the finals in Amarillo, Texas; Reno, Nevada; and Winnemucca, Nevada.

Also to their rodeo credit, they served as secretaries for the North American Rodeo Commission Finals held in El Paso, Texas and Charleston, South Carolina, a total of ten years.

During the span of “on the Road with Rodeo”, both have had full-time jobs. Ginni, 25 years in accounting with the Rural Electric Cooperative in La Junta; and Gerre, 13-1/2 years as a Sheriff’s Deputy in Otero County. Vacation, holidays, and any just-because-days were used to be available for rodeo. Their relationship with the NSPRA family is high on their priority list.

Even after all the sleepless nights, miles driven, and mountains of paperwork, their goal remains the same: Provide professional service with a personalized touch. Gerre was quoted as saying, “Cowboys and Cowgirls may have had rank stock and rough draws, but our ride with the Seniors is the ultimate adrenalin rush!”

The “Girls” are a wonderful addition to our NSPRA Hall of Fame.
