November 2019 Newsletter
Dear BPG Members,

It is so hard to believe that it is November and the 2019 show season has come to an end.  How time flies when you are having fun!!

ENTRY REMINDER:  Entries for Fort Worth are due on Friday, November 15.  So get the entry form out and get it headed to Fort Worth!!

Go ahead and mark your calendars now for San Antonio and Houston.  The San Antonio entries are due on December 15 and Houston is January 5.

ANNUAL GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING:  We have made a change on our Annual General Membership Meeting.  This year we will have it during the Fort Worth Livestock Show on Saturday, January 18, 2020 from 3:00 - 5:00.  We were able to reserve a room for our meeting on the show grounds, so we won't have to pay to reserve a room like we have been having to do in Houston.  Please try and be there.  Officers and Directors will be elected and several important decisions will be made.

All of our 2019 Year End Awards will be given out between the Females and the Bulls during the Open show at the Houston Livestock Show.  This way we will have a large audience to see the beautiful awards and have our winners in the spotlight!

SOCIAL and PARTY:  On Monday, January 20, all BPG members are invited to a big 'P-A-R-T-Y'!!  It will be held at Los Vaqueros Restaurant, 2629 N Main St, Fort Worth Stockyards.  We appointed a "Party Committee" of Lindsey Hendricks, Nancy Gilmore and Carissa Karisch to head up the fun for our social so come prepared to be "WOWED"!!  This is our only time to set aside a night to not work and have a great time with our friends.  PLEASE try and come and get to know new friends and reunite with old friends.

HOUSTON AISLE PARTY:  BPG members are really working hard trying to advance our group and move forward to new and bigger avenues.  We voted to host a "Meet & Greet Aisle Party" during Houston with focus on the International guests that attend the Houston Livestock Show.  BPG will have 20' of booth space to set up our "Living Room" for visitors to stop by socialize.  We will have our monitor playing with individual ranches ads highlighting their program, mini tours will be made down the aisles with the International guests and Bios of our advertisers will be read, and Facebook posts will be made spotlighting our advertisers.  Food and drink will be served.  A Translator will be on hand to answer any questions.  Our new Directories will be there to pass out.  This will be a great opportunity for our group.  A committee has been formed to help co-ordinate these activities:  Sherri Ellis, Kalli Ellis, Nancy Gilmore, Carissa Karisch, Lindsey Hendricks and Cindy Emmons.  Please contact any of these for questions or suggestions.

BPG will also continue to have our Booth in the International Room during Houston.  A Big thanks goes out to Mike Rodriguez for continuing to handle this important advertising tool.

DUES:  2020 Dues will be due on January 1, 2020.  Please go to:, print off a form and mail to Linda Hicks.

Invite your friends to come be a part!

See ya on the end of a lead rope,

We are putting together another BPG Directory to hand out at Houston and all next year.  This was voted on at our last Membership meeting.  We will be selling ads this year for the Directory for a fund raiser.  We want to make sure we have enough funds to give all of our great awards and premium money at all the shows.  The rates are very reasonable at $300 for a full page and $150 for 1/2 page, $400 for inside front and inside back.  They will all be in full color.  Our Year End winners will be listed, as well as our Hall of Fame winners.  Random photos will be added, show dates and other info.  Jon Michael will be printing it for us for FREE so all ads will be pure profit.  Please get your camera ready ads in to me by September 1.    Make sure your program is highlighted in our directory.
