Inaugural Knights Joust for Charity Deemed Quite Successful

Dining, Dancing, and an evening of fun ended with two winners being announced in the inaugural Knights of Columbus event "Knights Jousting For Charity" on Valentine night. Simon Guerra and Bryant Riffe were the recipients of $1000 each, having decided to split the $2000 prize as 198 other jousters were unhorsed throughout the evening.
According to the event's co-chairman Leroy Predmore, "This will be the first of many to come as the Guymon Council of the Knights of Columbus has already started planning next year's event." Approximately 300 people enjoyed the evening as the night started with a dinner fit for a knight and his men of the roundtable provided by Oklahoma Smoke. Right after the dinner, the introduction of the jousters and reading of the rules proceeded. After the first round of 75 being unhorsed through the drawdown, Ken Stonecipher and the Wooden Nickel band entertained the crowd with some favorite dance music.
When the second round of jousting began the jousters were on the edge of their seats hoping their horse would not be pulled and out of the joust. The second round knocked out 75 more and the band once again sprang into action to have a little more dancing before the final jousting round would begin. Laughter, socializing, and dancing kept the remaining 50 jousters and unhorsed spectators entertained before the third and final round would begin. The anticipation heading into the final round could be felt by everyone in attendance.
The final round began and one by one, jousters were unhorsed until the final two remained. The call was made for both jousters and their decision to split was announced to the crowd. During the event an auction was held and one of the winners of the jouster auction, Brown and Associates announced their intent to donate a $1000 of their winnings back to the Knights of Columbus which brought a round of applause from the spectators.
The Knights will use the proceeds to help with their charitable offerings throughout the area. The Knights would like to thank all who bought a ticket, donated a door prize, or sponsored the joust with a monetary donation. Co-chairman Randy Schreiner commented, "This event was intended to be fun while raising funds for charity, and I believe it surpassed our expectations as well as the jousters. We can't wait until next year." Winner Bryant Riffe also donated his $1000 winnings back to the Knights to be used for its charitable works throughout the year. The knights appreciate all the comments and compliments received during this event and would like to thank Brown and Associates and Bryant Riffe for the generosity of their donations back to the Knights.
