UBBI Members Supporting UBBI Competition

March 9th, 2016

UBBIStockPhotoFor the third consecutive year, the UBBI hosted it’s Ante Up Futurity in Palestine, Texas on March 5th. This event also featured the first of a 6 UBBI Youth Futurity competitions. The event attracted 48 open and 47 youth entries.

“The Ante Up Futurity was developed to offer an “increased” entry fee and a larger pay-back for our UBBI members,” stated Randy Schmutz, general manager of the UBBI. “Ante Up entry fees were doubled from our normal $450 fee to $900, and each Ante Up event has paid back 65%!”

In 2014, the first Ante Up Futurity attracted 54 entries and paid back $6,950. In 2015, entry numbers fell to 37 and in 2016 entry numbers fell even lower.

“I believe the data proves that the majority of our members are more willing to risk less and enter more bulls into our competitions. In other words, a lower entry fee creates more participation,” explained Schmutz. “I also believe that the increased number of bucking bull events and places to compete has added to the decrease in entry numbers. Increasing the entry fee to $900 has obviously kept some folks from entering, so we decided to lower the entry fee in 2016 to $500.”

Entry fees were lowered and the entry deadline was extended and ultimately we had 48 bulls entered. After entries closed, the UBBI staff learned that a number of members got together and decided to raise some additional money for the Ante Up purse. Their motivation was to reward those who decided to participate at this year’s Ante Up event instead of choosing to enter and compete elsewhere. Ultimately those members raised and donated an additional $5,000 to the purse! The additional $5,000 was added to the purse and paid back 100%!

“It’s no secret there are more places and more opportunities to compete with bulls than there ever has been,” stated Jimmy Ray, co-owner of the UBBI. “It was a bit overwhelming to see a group of our members take it upon themselves to help increase the purse and add $5,000! But it also shows how important the UBBI is to them! And we wanna especially thank those who put this added money together for this event!”

Randy Schmutz explained, “The UBBI has and will always use a portion of the entry fees to pay the bills and produce the events. Without entries our ability to provide these competitions becomes very limited. If members who have supported our events in the past chose to go somewhere else instead and entries continue to decline, the number of events on our schedule will also decline. The UBBI has always maintained a ‘value in return’ policy for what is taken from the member’s entry fee. In other words, that money is used to sustain this organization, rent the venues, provide the equipment, pay for the personnel, provide awards and produce a top notch year-end finals! If what we take equals or surpasses what we provide in return, then we’ve accomplished our goal. But without the member and without the entries, the ability to provide these things greatly diminishes!”

The UBBI enters it’s 6th year in 2016, and from the beginning it’s motto has been “It’s About You the Breeder”, but without the breeder participating there is no UBBI!

UBBI Implements New Silver Select Payout for Futurity Events

March 9th, 2016

silver select

The United Bucking Bulls, Inc has always been on the cutting edge of new ideas to enhance the bucking bull industry! The Gold Standard Futurity & Black Gold Derby were the first events to offer ownership in positions to compete for bigger purses! The Wayne Hodges 4 Star Trailers Futurity Super Series offers additional bonus money and the use of a new aluminum trailer! In keeping with those cutting edge ideas, the UBBI has announced it’s new Silver Select Futurity payout.

“We’re excited about this new Silver Select payout,” stated Randy Schmutz, the general manager of the UBBI. “It adds to the number of paid positions at every UBBI Futurity event (except the Gold Standard & UFL futurities) and gives a larger number of participants a chance to win money!”

Entry fees at regular season UBBI futurity events will increase from $450 to $500 for the remainder of the 2016 season. The $50 will create the Silver Select payout and be paid back 100%!

For example, at a futurity with 60 bulls entered, we will continue to pay 1 place for every 5 bulls entered, thus the top 12 placing bulls would earn a check toward qualifying for the UBBI National Finals. The forty-eight remaining bulls would be eligible for the Silver Select payout (60 bulls x $50 = $3,000 paid 100%). Dividing those 48 bulls, 1 place for every 5 bulls, the Silver Select would then pay the next 9 bulls. Silver Select winnings will NOT count as qualifier dollars toward UBBI National Finals or UBBI Futurity World Title.

“This is another way for members to enter and win with bulls that are just out of those regular paid positions,” explained Schmutz. “I’m confident this adds value to our futurity system and keeps it simple for everyone to understand and also provides a return to more of our members!”

The Silver Select payout will begin at the Boston Porter Memorial Bull Riding UBBI event in Palestine, Texas on March 18-19.

UBBI Futurity Super Series Begins in Palestine, Texas on March 19th

March 9th, 2016

SUPER SERIES with Wayne Hodges

The UBBI has revised it’s Super Series Schedule to begin March 19th in Palestine, Texas during the Boston Porter Memorial Bull Riding UBBI event. Once again in 2016, UBBI members can once again make their bulls Super Series eligible by paying an additional “one time” $300 entry fee (100% payback) at time of entry into the first of 3 selected UBBI Futurity Super Series events this season. Super Series bonus money will be paid back to the Top 4 Super Series enrolled bulls at each one of the three selected futurities including the Spring Spectacular in April, the Red River Chute Out in April and the Battle of the Bull event in July. At these three futurities, Super Series bonus money will be paid out in addition to regular event earnings!

$4,000 to 1st*    $3,000 to 2nd*    $2,000 to 3rd*    $1,000 to 4th*

(Based on 100 Super Series entries @ $300)

If one bull wins first place at ALL three Super Series futurities, that bull will be crowned the ”Super Series Champion” and win an additional $100,000 in Super Series Bonus cash.  The Super Series “High Point” Champion will once again win one year’s use of a Wayne Hodges 4 Star Aluminum trailer.  Each Super Series enrolled bull will earn 1 point for every bull he beats at each of the 3 Super Series Futurities.  The single bull with the most Super Series points will be crowned the Super Series “High Point” Champion!

This Series is simple and easy to follow and will enhance all three futurities. In 2016, when you enter your bulls, prior to entries closing for the Spring Spectacular, you simply circle “Super Series” on the entry form and pay an additional  ”one time” $300 Super Series entry fee per bull enrolled. The top placing “Super Series” eligible bulls will share $10,000* at each event. You don’t have to name your bull or pay the $300 Super Series entry fee until entries open for the Spring Spectacular.

McCoy Ranches bred bucking bulls with Cord McCoy & Kevin Graber placing second with bull #307 Ice Breaker, scoring 88.75 points.

It’s interesting that Opus and bull #3706 both dominated the standings last year as futurity bulls, finishing 1st and 5th respectively. Ice Breaker won a total of $945 last year and finished 86th and Bezerk had no UBBI Futurity earnings!

“Watching these bulls progress from year to year is always interesting and exciting,” stated Randy Schmutz, general manager of the UBBI. “To see some bulls come out of no where and begin to make their presence known as a Derby or Classic bull makes the bucking bull industry so fun!”

It can be said that the same thing happened in the Classic on Saturday night in Mineral Wells! Last year’s UBBI Derby World Champion bull #Z26 Acting Crazy won his maiden Classic event with a score of 88 points, beating 19 other 4 year old bulls and earning $2,300!

The futurity featured 59 two year old bulls and paid out 11 places. Bull #411 Pat’s Pride, owned by Stormy Foster/Terry Williams, was the second bull to perform on Saturday morning and set the bar for everyone else to jump over. Pat’s Pride, raised by Pat White of Louisiana, posted a score of 89 points and the other bulls were unable to surpass the mark! Stormy Foster/Terry Williams earned
