$5,000 Added To Barrel At 2nd Mississippi June Jam The Second Annual June Jam will return to the Mississippi Horse Park in Starkville , Mississippi the weekend of May 31 and June 1, 2002. Last year, riders from seven states, as far away as North Carolina, combined for over five hundred entries to compete for over $10,000 and prizes. "Last year was a huge success," says Mary Jane Orman, event coordinator. Orman mentioned a number of improvements since last year. "We have increased the added money to $5,000. "We will have a Martin Barrel Saddle for the Open Champion, a Martin Headstall for the Youth Champion, and a Dewalt generator for the Senior Champion. The new addition of a covered warm-up arena at the Mississippi Horse Park will enable the event to hold training barrels all day Friday simultaneous to the competition. "The Horse park' is such an awesome facility. We will have great ground, and with all the coverage we will be able to go rain or shine." There will be no pre-entry, and the sign-up will begin on Friday, May 31. For more information, contact Mary Jane Orman at (662) 325-9350 or (601) 955-8489; or contact the Mississippi Horse Park at (662) 325-9350.
