With the start of a new rodeo season, we are making a few changes. The first of those changes is that you will now be able to find highlights from each meeting right here on our website. Courtney Otto made a motion to post highlights of each meeting to the website so that members have the ability to look back at them at any time. This motion was seconded by Jeff Thurlow and passed.
