Back to the Sumas Roundup! A true test of control was the four horse Chariot Race. This surprise race was included in between the regular posted events, with prize money awarded to the winner. As the brochure (shown in Part 1 of 11) hints, "the management wants to make this a REAL SNAPPY SHOW!"
In my next posting I will discuss the sad decline of the Sumas Roundup in the late 30's and early 40's. We will also talk about what happened to the very large, wooden grandstand that held so many people.
