Awesome charity and I’m proud to be part of 50th Anniversary this year. This is another charity that I’m passionate about and very happy to be a part of.

You can now rope in the dark. Developed the first rope with light inside but they were to delicate and could not withstand the beating I give the rope while spinning, until now.
Iv invented a new rope you can spin and catch with and is extremely sturdy. Here I’m testing out the new durable rope for the first time. The test was a huge success and is going to look great on stages across America.
Remember you seen it here first. Marty Tipton
For over 10 years I have been visiting Children’s Hospitle at OU Medical centet many and I bring trick ropes and toys and play with the children. Iv been blessed to brighten the faces of so many children. I have had parents see me later like one time in Chicago Pizza in Mid West City this big man with a big beard just walked up to me and give me a hug. I was a bit taken back, then he said thank you so very much for visiting my daughter in the hospital and he went on to tell me that she had fully recovered.
On another occasion I had a parent email me a very kind letter. She said her daughter who’s being treated for cancer headed got out of her wheel chair in 3 months and after I left that day I left a trick rope with the young cowgirl and her mother thanked me for that gift because her daughter got out of her chair because she wanted to learn how topspin the rope for her self.
I had some amazing experiences working with the children there, Iv even been allowed to visit the Transplant sections were the children are housed in glass rooms under close observation and not exposed to the outer world for extended periods of time. And all they want is to be held and comforted and brought a smile.
It is sad at times as well though. Some parents try and try to ring in their children for dialysis but after some traveling across the state they run out of travel funds so the children are left at the hospital, some very long time without any parents or family to visit.
The first trip there was the hardest. Kris Steel a close friend of mine who was a State Representative helped me start visiting Children’s over a decade ago and I still visit as often as possible.
Iv meet the real heroes who volunteer at the Medical center and some of the volunteers have been there practically full time for over 20 years for thousands of hours.
May Prayer for the children is that the Lord bless each child their and may they not suffer or be leanly or scared and that they have joy in their hearts and see hope in other and I hope to put a smile on their faces for many years to come.
THANKS TO THE COMMANDER OF THE US ARMY GARRISON FORT SILL, OKLAHOMA COLONEL WATERS FOR BEING GREAT FRIEND AND SUPPORT

Wild West Party on the western set built inside the museum.
For the opening of the tournament, we had a western theme party. I performed some great trick roping stunts but for the Nuns and Doctors who sponsored the event. We also had line dancing for them and I tought the Nuns to line dance and trick rope. We even had a Dummy horse the guest sit on and roped a dummy calf. But the guest lived to line dance and I was happy to teach them the electric slide.
Have a big thanks to Dr. Ross, Dr. Shack, Dr. Hanna and the Bon Secours Nuns who took the stage with me to show off their trick roping skills. We had a chuck wagon feed with the best BBQ in the state. The event raised over $300,000. I also want to thank all the players, Doctors and all the volunteers. It was my pleasure to be a part Bon Secours.
There were so many players that the golf carts numbered into hundreds. I looked up one line and seen them number up to 380.
Here is a few photos of the gathering. But yee haw! stay tuned for a lot more action this year.!!!! Chilling a real country style drive across the USA.
I really love bing in the parade in Enid and seeing so many of my trick roping students and family and friends. Enid is a wonderful to be here again this year.
