Wow! What a great ride we had this year!
We had some spills and thrills. We had some sun, wind and a few sprinkles. We made some new friends and lost some dear ones. But overall, fun was had by all and we successfully completed another Cross State Ride. Thank you to everyone involved in the organization and execution of the Ride, as well as everyone who participated and supported us.

Saddle Raffle: David Egbert
Beef Raffle: Dorothy White (one of our special Logo Wagon girls) and Nannette Carter (from Best Choice Meats). The girls chose to take the $400 instead of the beef.
All the winners and participants of the whip-cracking contest, some of which won new Cracker Cow Whips, donated by KJ Smith of Cow Hunter Whips.
