Great weekend of rodeo! It’s good to see the members ready to compete! I overheard a comment that I have to share----“Is it required to run out of the arena in the goat tying?” I said, “Not really; but, we like to see our girls keep the rodeo moving along.”
Mark your calendars for the Annual Fall Scholarship Banquet, November 8, in Kearney at Younes Convention Center. The tickets include a meal for two and the opportunity to win some cash prizes, raffle drawings, Gold Buckle Table and an auction that will have some unique items. The ticket price is $75 for two and additional meal tickets can be purchased for $25 with your $75 ticket.
I don’t know when the “Banquet” got started; but, the proceeds from the event help with our association expenses. The Scholarship Auction goes to that years Junior Class for their scholarship fund. In recent years the junior classes have added a raffle and the Gold Buckle Table to boost their scholarship funds. The last two years we have been able to put $20,000 in each of the classes scholarship accounts. And, every student who has applied for a scholarship has received funds.
Cowboy Prom will be held this evening after the meal at Younes Convention Center. There is no charge for the members to attend the prom. More information will be coming on this event.
This is really a fun night for members, loyal supporters and fans of Nebraska High School Rodeo. By November 8, you might be missing us! You don’t have to be present to win some of the prizes. Junior class members will be selling raffle tickets and the adult directors the banquet tickets. Plan to come!!
Tricia Schaffer, National Director
