Wow! Al last! We finally got the weather to co-operate for a full two days! We had a great turn out of IBRA and GBRA riders. They seemed to have a great as they asked to come back next year! That is pretty cool as some of them are pretty picky about where they run. Kudos to the grounds crew that worked so hard to make it happen! When the tallies are all in, we did a great job and have funds to start another improvement slatd for the Circle X.
A big thank you to everyone who helped in putting this together and making it work so smoothly all week-end. Tim Hardesty ran the grounds crew and did a great job. Dean Hunt spent hours push mowing by hand parts of the Circle X and donated the panels for the catch pen. He also manned the mic for two nights of kareoke! Some super singers, and one member made her Circle X debute! She has sung in church for years, but this was her first time in front of the Circle X crowd. Good job A.A.! Thanks to Joyce Caylor, Vicki Jo Mollins, Dennis and Nell Forrester, Brad and Shawn Rhoades, Jamie Hale, and Amanda Shinn ( and children) for working the kitchen. Everyone loved the food and the prices. Ann Allen helped Cindy Rudrow at the registration table. Kenny Studt helped wherever needed, and I know there were others that were pitching in.
It was a great time seeing people we know and making new acquaintances. It is amazing to see the variety of ages of the competitors. They ranged from about 6 years old, (they had to scratch the first day because their class finally came during nap time LOL!) to 72 years young and giving them he..........ck! We hope everyone had a safe trip home and that they will consider coming back on the 21st, the 22, and the 23rd!
