OMG…. For those of you from the “old age”, as in contrast to the “new age”, that means oops!, or I forgot!, or shucks!, or whatever you want it to mean when it is purely some kind of exclamatory statement! In this case it’s OMG (O my god) I just realized I forgot the newsletter! Not the first time and certainly won’t be the last…so here it is and in the short form. I forgot to write it. No one said “Hey, where’s the newsletter?” But, I have been so busy with prepping for the Rodeo, helping to put on a great event, SRO on Saturday, and cleaning up after, plus, catching up at home, helpin’ my 98 year-old-mom, getting ready for the Mule Show and Dutch Oven Gathering, getting ready to cook for the Mule Show, fixing my tractor, let’s see, anymore things to do/get done to wine about, probably, but as I said, here’s the short form, so on to the ‘sletter.
The arena is open and in great shape. If you are so inclined, please use and enjoy.
Rodeo was a success. Those who came to the events enjoyed them. Those who participated had a great time! It was fun to see neighbors and friends enjoy each other’s company and the festivities.

The 2013-2014 Rodeo Queens are….. drum roll please….ERIN MAYA, sr. queen, and KALI FREELE jr. queen. Both these ladies did an exceptional job in the pageant, as did the other contestants, unfortunately there can only be one queen and junior queen. Keep looking for these two young ladies throughout the year at local functions and other rodeos, you will be seeing them again! Congrats Erin and Kali!!
Yesterday we had the first of the Summer Fun Gymkhana Series. It went off flawlessly. The Gold Express Drill Team Ladies know how to put on an event! So, the PVCRA and Gold Express Drill Team invite you to come out for a summer of fun arena games! There will be 4 gymkhanas where you can compete for day prizes and buckles will be awarded to the high point winner in each age division at the end of the series! This year we have added a trotting race to each gymkhana day. We want to encourage riders of all ages and skill levels to come out and try their hand at some fun this summer! Don’t think that just because you haven’t ever participated in a gymkhana that you can’t do it….YOU CAN! WE WANT YOU THERE!
