Bishop Bash!!!!! If you weren't there, you missed a GREAT shoot! We had 46 riders at this shooting celebration commemorating 55 years of marriage for Hugh and Jeanne Bishop. Dana Barrett and Mike Hanagan put on an excellent match and everything was perfect. There was plenty of added money to go around, live music for listening and dancing on Saturday night and Robert Barnard and his company Principal Financial Group provided the entertainment and cold drinks for everyone. Day 1: Congratulations to Overall Donnie MacDougall, Mens Reserve Dan Byrd, Ladies Overall Jamie Lowe and Ladies Reserve Hallie McFadden. Day 2: Kudos to Overall Dan Byrd, Mens Reserve Clay Whaley, Ladies Overall Dahlis Morgan and Ladies Reserve Jamie Lowe. Mark Marley won the Rifle competition and Jamie Lowe took top honors for Shotgun. We had a couple of move ups with some spectacular dancing by Tim Cowan and Susan Hill (see Jamie Lowe's videos on Facebook).
A fan, 8 year old Braden Fuentes of Artesia, drew this for Pam after watching the Smokin' on the Pecos shoot in Artesia. Hopefully we'll see Braden riding with us in our wrangler program some day! Thanks for the great picture, Braden.
