ing more outstanding animals. “There’s more of the good ones,” he said.
He is especially impressed with the young calf ropers and the team ropers “Bareback riding has just gotten better and better,” Clint said.
His personal rodeo experience included team roping. He also did one wild horse race. “It went pretty much as expected,” he laughed. “I got on, but didn’t stay on for very long.”
The Longs even team roped once at an amateur rodeo. “We did all right,” Clint said. Arylss added, “We missed a lot.”
Other community involvement for the Longs include being church council members at First Lutheran Church and as leaders for the McCone County 4-H Club.
Clint’s artistic talents can easily be seen in Wolf Point. He created the Wolf Point Stampede logo and wolf drawings for both the police department and school.
He said he has always enjoyed drawing. “I probably would have done better in school, if I wasn’t drawing all the time,” Clint laughed.
This year, the couple worked together to create the commemorative poster for the 100th Stampede. Items by Clint were sold during an auction to help raise funds for Stampede activities.
“I’m looking forward to meeting my old friends and visiting with them,” Clint said.
Arlyss said she is excited about seeing the town being busy and full with activities.
