Tommie Derry's 25th Anniversary IPRA Rodeo Award
" On January 3rd, 2015, we went to Oklahoma to the International Professional Rodeo Finals. We were told I was to receive an award and my son, Mark, insisted I attend to receive it. Goodness I am so glad I did. I had the time of my life...
We arrived in Oklahoma City to find a whole bunch of Cowboys and Cowgirls I knew from all the past Walterboro Pro Rodeos. I never realized so many of them had been here as a contestant or performer and Walterboro, SC is as well-known as it is. I was both shocked and thrilled. You folks probably don’t remember a clown 'Bud', he was the 1st Rodeo Clown here and came a couple of times in the 1st 5 years. Another Rodeo Clown, Hollywood Harris, was also there. Those are just a couple of the various folks I had the pleasure of seeing and catching up on the 'well let me tell you'. So much fun…
Then the shock came when the awards were given during the Banquet. The Walterboro Pro Rodeo was asked to come up to the stand. I did, feeling like the little old lady that I am, and the announcer said 'I am sure most of you have been to the Walterboro Pro Rodeo in Walterboro, SC. Well, this is the little lady that started it and continues to put it on. If you all notice, she is the only one up here; there is no committee...' The crowd laughed. 'She started it, works it today and does it herself.. It is the IPRA’s pleasure to present Tommie Derry, Walterboro Pro Rodeo, Walterboro, SC this award for 25 years. Mrs. Derry is the first woman promoter of Professional Rodeo. It is she that blazed the way for women. Again, we are very proud of her and all her accomplishments. There are an awful lot of you cowboys/cowgirls that know her personally and speak very highly of her and the warm welcome that not only she gives but the city of Walterboro, SC gives you.'
Needless to say I was overwhelmed and grateful. I can assure each of you it will always remain my fondest memory. I do have to end this with my forever saying 'the outside of a horse is good for the inside of man'. Thank you God for such beautiful creatures. "
... but that is not all the Double D Has to offer. Here at the Double D Arena you can find horse shows and play days throughout the year. In the past, we have even hosted circuses! Through out the year, we offer over night stabling for all the traveling Cowboys and Cowgirls.
