Many of you may think that winter time in the rocky mountains would be down time for a committee supporting a rodeo that takes place in July. Not so, because we have around fifty committee members already working hard to ensure that the 2014 Rooftop Rodeo is better than ever. We will start the year in June with the first of our summer "Beat the Heat" Barrel Races. The Rooftop itself takes place July 8-13 followed by a second barrel race in September. Also, in September will be the first Western Heritage Antique and Western Collectables Show. This show is different from what we have done in the past because it will be in the new and super nice multiple purpose events center and it will be in the Fall rather than the Spring. Add to this an additional emphases on Western collectables and you can expect a really great show. We are also working toward the production, in 2015, of a Western Art Show and Sale. The proceeds from the Barrel Races, the Antique and Western collectable show and eventually the Western Art Show will all go toward supporting the Rooftop Rodeo, The Western Heritage Youth Scholarship Fund, and the Western Heritage Youth Royalty Program. So please come to these events and support these important activities. Also, remember that we have a Bequest program, Donor program, and a very active Sponsorship program. It takes all this to support our youth and Pro Rodeo.
I want to invite each of you to email me with any questions you may have about how to support our youth programs, the Rooftop Rodeo or rodeo in general. So folks, let me know your thinking. Your friend, the Colonel.
