Welcome to the 56th Annual Mother Lode Round-up. On behalf of the Sheriff’s Posse I would like to thank all of the many sponsors and citizens that continue to support this great small town event. In addition I would like to thank the County of Tuolumne and the Board of Supervisors, and the City of Sonora for their support and for understanding that this event has hallmarked what is great about Tuolumne County for over fifty six years.

The Possemen and their wives hope that you will enjoy what our efforts continue to produce each year and the excitement this traditional event brings to family gatherings here in the Sierra Nevada foothills. Join our Posse families in celebrating this great parade and rodeo tradition that lives on as the Mother Lode Round-up every Mother’s Day weekend. To my wife Marcie I love you and once again Happy Mother’s Day! Tyler and Emily the best kids a parent could have, you make me proud. Mom and Dad thank you for everything, especially life itself. To all Mothers on this day we HONOR you. So sit back relax and enjoy a Sunday afternoon in the Mother lode!!!

“The only easy day was yesterday”


Wishing you all the best,

Tim Orpurt

Captain, Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Posse
