Fellow Cutters -
Let me start off by saying "OH
MY GOSH!!! It is already show season 2016!!!" Where does
the time go?!?!? I hope you all wintered well and are
anxious for great accomplishments this year!! Now, let
me add some more excitement to what you already had
Julie Clarke has been a long time
supporter of cutting in Oregon. She wanted to continue
her giving this year and approached me with some
criteria as to how she would like her donation to be
used. She wanted to do something to create excitement,
generate entries and support the foundation cutters of
Oregon State, namely those people with 5 day a week jobs
that "live" to go to their next competition. She and I
talked through some ideas and decided that supporting,
encouraging, and showcasing the $35,000np and $15,000am
riders would be the very best way to accomplish her
wishes. We put a lot of thought into this idea and in
fact structured it so that in the future it could be
sponsored by another entity, hosted by another
association or even showcase other classes.
particulars are below for you to see. One note I will
make - at this time the contestant will be required to
pay their cattle fee but we are also looking for
sponsors to have that donated as well!!! It is sure to
be a very exciting event at the end of this year!!
Something I think everyone one, participant or not, can
look forward to!!! Please spread the word and encourage
you friends to make getting to the top 3 in their
associations a priority for 2016!!!
