1st Annual Whistle Stop Ranch
Fall Cowboy Roundup
October 17, 2009
Hosted by Mike & Paulette Tcherkassky
It was a warm fall afternoon under a bright blue sky as folks (some who had traveled over a hundred miles and more) began to gather at the ranch. The breeze carried the scent of a mesquite fire as the ManFlo Ranch Chuckwagon team prepared country style pork ribs, cowboy beans, biscuits and fresh peach cobbler. Poet Gary Robertson joined the gathering, not to recite his poetry, but to help man the grill.

At sunset, we all settled down to an evening of entertainment featuring our host Mike Tcherkassky, Elko’s finest poet Walt “Bimbo” Cheney, the hilarious Pat Richardson and of course, the Charlie Russell of cowboy songwriting, Dave Stamey. It soon became an unforgettable night of poetry and music under the stars.
Planning is already underway for the 2nd Annual Whistle Stop Ranch Fall Cowboy Roundup as well as other Big Hat Promotions events for 2010. We’ll be expecting you.
