Dear Members and Sponsors,

We would like to thank our judge Debbie McGregor, our show help, Art Grunig, Chris Brown, Gary Long, Steve Litzky, Judy Caddell; our show announcer, Debbie Pardini; two of our youths’, Kaylee Thompson and Cassie Alianza for presenting the Flags; Bob Giannecchini of Wine Country Ranch Equipment for all his support, coming out late Friday night to prep the arena; thank you to PRDC board members who ensured the facility was clean after a late event on Friday night. The partnership is much appreciated; thanks to our diligent show secretary LyndaBell Jacobsen; as well as April Alianza and Carla Hagge for providing us all an awesome lunch; Thank you, to my the entire board for all their help.
We will be featuring articles and communicating at our shows, some standard-customary showmanship processes & practices, in the cutting pen. Our goal is to foster and enrich a cutter for the future. See more information under the “Tips for Cutting events”
We are extremely fortunate to have a NCHA Hall of Famer in our County. Our own local lady, Sandy Bonelli of the Heart Ranch; who has graciously agreed to be the clinician at our clinic on July 14th and 15th. This is truly a rare privilege, not only to learn from one of the finest in the industry; but your club leaders are focused on making this event equitable for the majority.
