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

On Monday, January 20, all BPG members are invited to a big

aside a night to not work and have a great time with our 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.
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.
