Recording industry executives and talent managers also show up looking for new talent. John Brandt hopes Salina can develop a similar venue for local talent. That's why he's creating Writer's Night and Talent Showcase at G.Willikers restaurant, 158 S. Santa Fe. Beginning Friday and continuing every other Friday, Brandt wants to provide a place for local musicians to present their work. The sessions last from 6 to 9 p.m. and are open to musicians of any style. "I'm trying to get exposure to songwriters, whether they have lyrics or not," Brandt said. "There's a lot of talent in this area." Musicians will have 20 to 30 minutes to perform acoustically and their music should be clean of offensive lyrics, Brandt said. The event is not a jam session or a karaoke contest. Brandt wants musicians to contact him a week before each session so he can hear their music and collect background information about them. He will introduce the musicians and create each session's lineup. And if musicians need help copyrighting songs or getting their music published or recorded, Brandt can offer them that assistance. Brandt, Minneapolis, is a recording engineer and maker of professional-quality sound systems. He worked in Nashville, Texas and Europe before coming to Salina in 1998 to work at Blue Heaven Studio as a studio engineer and studio manager. He left Blue Heaven last year and is opening his own business to design audio electronics. Writer's Night rules and information are available at or by calling Brandt at 827-2552.

The events are in conjunction with the weekend C.O.W.B.O.Y. Society Spring Gather, which features encampments and cowboy action shooting. The ranch rodeo begins at 6 p.m. Saturday at the El-Kan Rodeo Arena with a cowboy auction. The rodeo begins at 7 p.m. The cowgirls ranch rodeo is Sunday, with teams auctioned at 1 p.m. and the rodeo beginning at 2 p.m. The Working Ranch Horse Show is at 1 p.m. Saturday. Ranch horses from a three-state area will compete in six different, judged events, including Pool & Spa SERVICE calf cutting and calf roping. Tickets to the events are $5. Ranch rodeos are designed to showcase the skills and knowledge of today's working ranch cowboys. Events include: • Team doctoring, which requires the teamwork of four participants on horseback in a timed event. A "header and healer" ropes a calf that has been separated from the herd. A "vet" dismounts, puts the calf down and marks its head. • Wild cow milking. One cowboy ropes the cow, dismounts and tries to help the other three on his team subdue the cow long enough to squirt milk into a bot­ tle and run across a finish line. • Team penning. Three team members cut three numbered cattle from the herd and move them into a small pen in the middle of the arena. • Double mugging. A four- member team push a designated calf across the line, rope it and tie three legs. The calf must stay tied for 5 seconds.
