Click here to register online


Summer Roping/Alumni and Family Summer Gathering 2017 is scheduled for June 16th and 17th in Childress, TX!

We are excited to be bringing the 31st Annual Summer Gathering to Childress, TX the weekend of June 16th-17th, 2017. We can’t wait to once again bring together the camaraderie, networking, ranching way of life and down right fun that happens during the alumni summer gatherings! We would love to be able to provide a memorable time, but at a limited cost to our alumnus and families.

As alumni, we rely on strong working relationships and bonds with one another in our industry and encourage all to engage in participation of Texas Christian University Ranch Management events and gatherings. This being said, we need your help and attendance for this great opportunity to get together this summer.

Included is information regarding what will be going on this summer for the alumni gathering. There should be a little something for all to be involved in or at least enjoy watching. We would love for everyone to make it, obviously, but if unable to attend and feel moved to make a donation to help further our goals for the weekend, then your donation is much appreciated.

Thank you for taking the time to look over the provided information. If you have any questions or would like to visit with us, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
