I really enjoy seeing what I can do with a rope.  Tommie gave me an old rope and made me a new one several years ago.  The old ones are easier to spin than a new rope.   I always carry my ropes to an expo.  I will get them out if things get slow.  You will always find someone at a expo, who ropes really well.   Roping is really fun.  The other cool thing is that you can make a rope inexpensively.
