Presidents Message 2021

While we all dealt with covid last year we managed to pull off our Men’s Ride at the Bar SZ Ranch and all had a great time. We have decided to return there again this year as it met all of our needs and then some.

As we dedicated last year’s ride to Norm Nelson, this year we will sadly be remembering another of our friends and long-time rider and committee member, We lost Jeff Taylor this year to a rare disease called Cruetzfeld-Jakobs. This should serve as a remainder to gather with and enjoy our friends whenever possible. Jeff was an active member of our ride, like Norm, and hosted the ride at his family ranch several times. Jeff was always a generous supporter of our rides as well as our spiritual guide. He will be greatly missed.

Once again, I urge you to sign up early as the housing will book up quickly. We plan to hold all of the same events as last year including the shooting competition and as always, the food will be great and the cocktails will be included.

Come gather with your friends and lets keep the spirit of the west alive.
