Join us for Cinco de Mayo and “El Rodeo” on May 5

Mark your calendars now and gather all your friends for a fun evening May 5 at Stage Door. The evening will start at 8:00 p.m. and this will be our first fund raiser for our 2007-2008 charities. We will be sponsoring a blow out Cinco de Mayo party and are having another one of our famous “mock rodeos.”

There will be special shooters for the evening, raffles, a silent auction, ribbons and maybe even rodeo buckles for the winners! We’ll be doing goat dressing (wait ‘til you see the goat), barrel racing on a tricycle, stick horse flag racing, ride a cowboy, and dress a drag. Proceeds for the evening will also add to our seed money for a rodeo in 2008. Be thinking about what you can donate for the silent auction or any businesses you can approach for a donation. If you are interested in helping plan the event, contact Susan B. via email at cowgirlbynature@aol.com.

“Mini-Rodeo” at Harmony Hill Arena coming this summer

Here’s your chance to try out your rodeo skills and learn some new ones. We are having a mini rodeo Saturday, August 5 at Harmony Hill Arena in Royston, GA. It’s about 1½ hours from Atlanta and we are trying to get a bus or vans so we can all ride up together. There will be the usual horse events for all you “horsy” people, a class on calf roping on foot, possible goat dressing, and fun events for those of us who don’t ride. We’ve asked Mattie and her mom to cook for us again. You haven’t eaten if you haven’t had their fried chicken, turnip greens, pinto beans, cornbread, biscuits and sweet potato cobbler. We are hoping people will bring tents to camp and make it a weekend event to remember. Watch the website for more details.
