Hi BPG Members,
Hope everyone is doing well in the summer heat and hopefully gotten some rain.
U was a huge success! Thanks to EVERYONE that helped with this great
event. We had the largest number of entries to date and it was exciting
to get back on the road for a weekend!! A special thank you to Emily
and Alex for heading up this great event.
Nationals came to an end on July 24 and it was an exciting week. BPG
was able to make an impact in their show by making a donation and by
also giving awards in the Showmanship event. Linda Hicks, in memory of
Pevine Hicks, gave the champion exhibitor in each Showmanship division
$100. The winners were:
Junior Champion--Mackenzie Low
Intermediate Champion--Kayl Tassin
Senior Champion--Braylee Mackie
overall winner that received the traveling trophy and Belt Buckle,
donated by BPG, was Braylee Mackie. All 3 of these showman did an
West Texas Fair is still scheduled as normal. Be sure and submit your
entries by August 15. Our show is supposed to start earlier this year
so that will certainly be helpful to those needing to get back home
Sunday evening. BPG is sponsoring the Belt Buckles and giving premium
money to the show, as well as Division Awards. Let's make this a large
show since it will be a bit before we get to go again!!
most of you know, the Heart O'Texas Open Beefmaster show has been
cancelled, as well as the State Fair of Texas Open Beefmaster Show. At
the writing of this letter, I still don't know any details about the
State Fair of Louisiana so will let you know as soon as I know
two shows definitely affects our Hall of Fame winners. Have been
studying this for quite a while on how to handle it. The maximum points
available for a show is 60 points, therefore losing 2 shows will equal a
possibility of losing 120 points. After visiting with Mona, the
easiest way for her to track this is, if you think you have a female or
bull that might possibly make the Hall of Fame, send me their names.
The females' DOB needs to be from January 1, 2018 through Shreveport
2020. (if we have Shreveport) The bulls' DOB needs to be from September
1, 2017 through Shreveport 2020. Losing these shows will affect the
Hall of Fame through 2022. I know this is kind of confusing, so if you
have any questions, just let me know. Maybe I can talk about it better
than I can explain it on paper!!
will be having a BPG meeting in Abilene on Saturday afternoon,
September 12. As soon as I get a definite time from Abilene, I will
send out an email.
See ya on the end of a lead rope!
