Wild Weippe Rodeo
The Wild Weippe Rodeo meeting was held Friday night at Weippe City Hall. There were several new people and returning members that are wanting to get more involved. Some notes from that meeting:
Angel Gering gave the Queen Wrangler Report. She handed out new crowns to the royalty. Shelby and Katie Bird presented garment bags, duffle bags and shirts made by Margo Anderson for both Shelby and Hannah. Katie also presented the beautiful flowers that Sherry Schlader made for the girls.
Elections were held, results being: Ken Hengen-president, Tristen Spencer-vice president, and Tony Christopherson-Director.
Ken reported that Natalie is working on the t-shirts, she’s picked a design and Bev is ready to begin production. Ken, Franci and Natalie will get together to inventory last year’s shirts and give Bev a starting point.
The Sponsorship Committee is doing well. Bev Bailey, Shawnean Larson and Jenn Rowland are working on the sponsors for this year and will have preliminary results to us soon.
Molly reported that Mike and Linda Jackson have donated their B&B for the stock contractor and crews to use for rodeo weekend and that the stock contractor has accepted the offer and he will arrange for the local stock. Rachel Slotemaker is interested in helping. Molly will contact her to see if she would generate support in the Moscow area.
Chris Goetz has requested the use of the arena August 3 for a 4-H event. We will provide concessions for this event, as well. Tony will look into fire extinguishers and ensure we’re properly equipped.
Lloyd reported that we are able to use his field this year for parking again and that the entrance is in good shape and no gravel is needed at this time. Hannah VanHook reported that she and Shelby Bird will be attending the Asotin Rodeo and Parade next weekend. Next rodeo meeting will be May 10 at the rodeo grounds. Come on out and get involved!
Thanks to Molly for passing on this news.
