We had a great time last weekend at Buffalo Meadows and a good turnout. It was a great mix of new and familiar faces. Good to see Vic and Gil Saturday and hear that everything was safe for them in the fire zone.
As usual, thanks to Jim McDougall and Elvin Walt for their roping tips. It was particularly good to see Elvin back in the saddle again.
I’ll be contacting Sandy when she returns from NFR to schedule out next gathering in April. Let me know asap what weekends work best for you in April.
Wish you all the best for the holidays,
Our inaugural gathering at Buffalo Meadows Ranch was an overwhelming success thanks to the hard work of Jim McDougall and Elvin Walt. Elvin and Jim led the way in setting up and breaking down panels as well as instruction in our break-a-way pen.
Thanks too to ranch managers, Bill and Sandy, for their organizational and set up work.
I will soon be contacting Sandy to schedule our next gathering. How does the weekend of June 17 & 18 sound, if it’s available? Let me know and I will try to nail down those dates.
Don’t forget Pete Taylor’s event on April 28th to 30th.
Until next time, happy trails,
