HALL OF FAME: A RECORD OF NSPRA HISTORY AND ACHIEVEMENTS

Alma Evetts

Alma Evetts (1916-2001)
Hanford, California

Alma Evetts was born in Canute, Oklahoma in 1916. She married Hoke Evetts and moved to California in the 1930’s. This was the start of an exciting life that included raising three wonderful children, Charlene, Tonja and H.P. Alma was involved with the family business, The Overland Stockyards, and also owned Alma’s Flea Market. Alma was not blessed with a rodeo background, but her family became involved with rodeo, so she decided…”If you can’t beat em’, join em’.” In 1965, at the young age of 49, Alma decided to give rodeo a try. She won the Barrel Racing at the California State Rodeo Salinas in 1974 and made that her passion over the years, still competing at the Cow Palace at age 83. She loved to rodeo and made many great friends on the Senior Pro Rodeo tour. Alma was a sharp dresser in the rodeo arena and loved a flamboyant look. You could always count on seeing lots of sequins, rhinestones, rubies and diamonds when she raced her barrel horse into the arena. Alma Evetts was an inspiration to all who knew her. She was the true symbol of heart and hope!
