Marty Tipton and the Cowboy Way
Los Angeles Interview     
Marty Tipton is about as close as one can get to the American cowboy of yore this side
of the year 2000. And while his cowboy hat and boots, and even his livelihood as a
professional trick roper add to this conception, the similarities extend beyond the
standard cowboy imagery. Tipton has a larger-​than-​life quality to him, telling stories in
his friendly Oklahoma twang that seem believable enough but also carry with them a
sense of the fantastic that belongs in a dime novel.

When Marty was in his early grade school years he would walk to his grandmothers house
after school everyday. She would give him a treat and tell him stories about growing up in the
west.  Delia rode in a wagon across the largest county in Oklahoma called Osage from the
Vinita area to meet her husband Dale. Dale worked in the 101 Ranch Wild West  Show
performing and training horses.  Marty's grandmother also told him stories about the Pawnee
Bill Wild West Shows and her visits with Will Rogers. One of her favorite sorties was about the
unveiling of the Pioneer Woman in 1930. She said Will had everyone rolling with laughter when
he commented about the Pioneer Woman having a girdle on the prairie. After the unveiling  of
the statue Will and Delia had a picnic together and she recalls him talking to her about the
pickled watermelon that was so popular. Delia received letters from Will over the years from
places he had visited around the world. One of the letters Marty recalls her reading was about
the Mississippi floods. Delia keep the letters at her bedside in the dresser drawer tied with a
ribbon till she passed away.

Oklahoma Land Run Story  
told by Marty Tipton
"It is not always how fast you run or how high you climb but how you bounce.
Don't merely be a spectator. Nothing compares to living life, rather than merely watching it. Yes, it takes daring and a
willingness but its be so worth it - despite the bumps and scratches and bruises along the way."

and each year we pick a different theme. This year we chose the United States and a
western theme, so we contacted Tipton. His entertainers were skilled and very sociable.
Our guest loved being able to interact with the performers. He was also even able to
deliver an Emmy Award winning musician to perform for us. PT Barnum himself
couldn't of done a better job.  Over the 15 years I have been CEO we have never seen
such a wonderful production. It was exciting and energetic and memorable.  I would
recommend Tipton to anyone who was ever considering having a gathering of any
type. It was simple astonishing.

performed in Wild West shows. These skilled women toured the world in the late 19th and early
20th centuries, influencing millions with their courage, determination, and independence. The
women of the Wild West shows represented idealized images of the past, but they were also
agents of cultural change who challenged the expectations of what women were capable of doing.

He told Annie "You're going to be a star someday." From that day on out Annie traveled the world competing and
giving exhibitions of her expert shooting skills. Annie was known to have shot 1000 glass ball targets that were
thrown in the air, never missing a single shot. She could also shoot over her shoulder only using a mirror to hit
her target and even split a bullet on the edge of an axe splitting the bullet to hit two targets. She eventually
joined the Wild West show circuit to perform and live a happy and successful life with her husband. Her timely
rise to fame allowed her to become one of the first American women to be a "superstar".
