Calling all cowboys! George Strait‘s 31st annual Team Roping Classic is on the books for 2013, and it promises to be a knee-slapping good time. The event will take place on Friday, March 8 and Saturday, March 9, 2013 at the San Antonio Rose Palace in San Antonio, Texas.

Of course Strait is known first and foremost for his contribution to country music, but he doesn’t just sing about being a country boy — the legendary star is a pretty legitimate cowboy in his own right. Strait and his brother, Buddy, started the George Strait Team Roping Classic in 1982, and it’s now one of the most prestigious open team roping competitions in the country.

Every year, the competition attracts the biggest names in the sport, and the 2013 event won’t be any different. Part of the event’s appeal is that it offers roping experts more than $700,000 in prizes. Last year’s winners Clay Tryan and Patrick Smith took home custom-painted Chevrolet Silverado Duallies, as well as horse trailers, saddles, rope bags and more than $200,000 in cash money. Talk about a good haul!

If you’re a skilled roper, start practicing now!
