December 2012 New Year Notice

Dear BPG Members,


Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas. The New Year is fast approaching and I wish everyone a healthy and happy New Year.


We had a really great fall show season. Entries in all the shows were up considerably from 2011. That is great news, it means we are continuing to grow our membership. It is time to renew your membership in the BPG. I have attached the Membership and Dues Renewal form. Please fill that out and mail to Linda, her address is on the form. Remember, we did have a dues change for 2013. Adults will pay $35 and Juniors will still pay $25. The owner of the animal listed on the BBU paper must be a BPG member in order for the animal to show. If you go ahead and mail your dues in, then it will be much easier in Ft. Worth.


The INTERNATIONAL BEEFMASTER GALA SALE is fast approaching. Please mail your consignments in to Bruce Robbins, along with your $50 consignment fee (will be refunded in full if your animal sales in the sale). The sale this year will be held on Saturday, March 2 at 5:00 p.m. All of the other Beefmaster functions will be over so there will not be any timing conflicts. Only 30 lots will be accepted so get those in immediately. I sent a consignment form out to everyone in October, but if you need another one, just let me know. Let's make this sale a booming success, consign only your best. We had the highest sale average in 2012 of all the sales held in Houston.


Our Awards Banquet will be held in Ft. Worth on January 21 at 7:00 p.m. It will be at Los Vaqueros Restaurant, 2629 N. Main St., Ft. Worth, TX 817-624-1511. This is the same place we had it last year, in the historic Ft. Worth Stockyards. This is during our show at the Ft. Worth Livestock Show. (Just found out we have 129 entries.) All of our Year End Awards will be given out at this banquet. Please try and be there, this is our only social event of the year and it's lots of fun! The banquet will be Dutch treat and I need you to RSVP to make sure we will have enough room for everyone. Either email me, text or call 903-879-0791.


REMINDERS: If you have not entered the San Antonio Livestock Show, you can late enter and still get your entries in. The Houston Livestock Show entry deadline is January 5.


The BPG Annual Membership Meeting will be held in Houston on Saturday morning, March 2, 2013. When I get the room secured I will let you know where and what time. Be sure and mark your calendars and save the date.


Beefmaster U will be held again this year. It was a really good fund raiser for us in 2012 so maybe we can make it even bigger and better in 2013. Rayna will give us more details on this event at a later time.


If anyone has any ideas or suggestions, please don't hesitate to let me or any one of the officers know. We always need new and different ideas. Fund raising ideas are always a must. It costs quite a bit of money to run your organization, so all ideas are welcome!


That's all for now!


See ya at the shows,

Our Annual Meeting will be held during the week of the Houston Open Show.  I am trying to get the meeting on Thursday but have not heard back from Houston yet on when we can get a room, but will send an email out as soon as I am notified.  Please try and be in attendance if at all possible.  Several items will be on the agenda such as approving the By Laws, electing new officers, rule amendments, etc.  We need your input.
We are putting together a new Membership Directory for the BPG.  We are selling ads for the directory.  Full page color is $300, full page black and white is $250, 1/2 page color ads are $150 and 1/2 page black and white are $100.  Please contact Sarah Nabours at or myself at with your info.  We need that info ASAP so we can have the books available at Houston.  This is a major fund raiser for our group.  Please be a part and promote your cattle.  If you have any photos that you would like placed in the directory, please email those to either Sarah or myself so we can get them in.
To be eligible for Show Dam of the Year and Show Sire of the Year award, you must nominate your cow or bull.  The nomination fee is $100 per animal if nominated BEFORE the show at Houston.  The points will be made retroactive back to the Ft Worth show so that all of your points will be counted.  Nominations will also be accepted until June 30th that will be retroactive to Jan. 1, 2012, but the nomination fee will be raised to $150.  I have attached the two forms to this email.  Please fill them out and send them in.
