The Wellington National Gold Club is hosting its popular annual “Buck Off” Challenge to benefit Southeast Florida Honor Flight, which is a nonprofit organization that flies World War II, Korean War and Vietnam War veterans to Washington, D.C., to visit the memorials built to honor their service and sacrifice.

The Buck Off Challenge will be held on Friday, March 15 at the Wellington National Golf Club at (400 Binks Forest Drive, Wellington). Practice opportunities will be on Thursday, March 14 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., thanks to sponsor Happy Endings Farm, and Friday before the competition at 6 p.m. The competition will start at 6:45 p.m. Riders can register now, Thursday evening or Friday before the start of the competition. The event is open to the public. To register, contact event director Bobbi Rottman at (561) 436-1165 or

Each team consists of four riders with an entry fee of $100 per team. Wellington National Golf Club will be providing an Argentine Asado dinner for $20 per person, and there will be a cash bar. Proceeds from the night’s food and drink sales will be donated to Southeast Florida Honor Flight.

Four-person teams compete in the Buck Off Challenge, where individual rides are scored by a panel of celebrity judges and totaled to determine the winning team. Riders are scored on their ability to stay on the bull while keeping one hand in the air at all times, as well as the style of the ride. Higher scores can be achieved for character, team spirit and costumes. Prizes are awarded to the top three teams. Judges will include former WPTV anchor and Wellington Chamber of Commerce President Roxanne Stein, 94-year-old WWII veteran Carmin Yannotta and two more surprise judges.
