We had a fabulous Old West Show this year! Thank you’s go
out to all of our members (and members husbands!) who stepped in to help. We
had over 34 Old West entries! And a show Total of 84, which is a big
improvement over the last show. We had enough entries to fill all our
categories except Sculpture/Mixed Media, which we had to combine with our next
lowest entry category, drawing. At shows,
we do try to avoid combining categories if at all possible, but sometimes it is
unavoidable. We also had a nice display by official CSA Rodeo artists Claudia
Fletcher and Jim Stuckenberg on view, which drew quite a few visitors.
Part of the show’s success was due to the excellent
publicity given us by the Rodeo Association this year. They not only included us in their calendar
of events but also donated $100 to the 1st place winner of the Old
West category and we thank them for all their help. This year the Rodeo
Association also held their Queen’s Banquet at the Veteran’s Center so we held
the show open until 8 PM on Saturday so that attendees could come over and
enjoy the show. We had a pretty good crowd and what I am told was “Real Rodeo
Royalty” come over and view the show! Thank you Jackie & Jim McCoy for
joining me in sitting the show the extra time!
I hope to see you at the next meeting where Master Artist
Doris Runyan will be demonstrating Pastel techniques for us!
