As you all know, soooooo many things to do to get ready for such an event. Last year with 163 chili cooks. HOW GREAT IS THAT! Thank you Ruby for all your dedication in doing paper work, getting sponsors, permits, judges, organizing trophies, making deposits and much more. Thank you Fred and Melba for the great job you do organizing the vendors. Thank you Johnny Campbell for designing the HR flyer and heading up the BBQ and bean cooks. If you would like to sponsor a HOWDY-ROO chair, please contact Doc. Make your checks out to HLCP and mail $50 to Doc Kinnison, PO Box 878, Marble Falls, TX 78654.
If you want a red "HOWDY" shirt, please contact Carrie 281-615-2408 or firstname.lastname@example.org. She will be taking orders until Monday April 9th. S-M-L $8.50/SL-XXL-XXXL $11.50.
I appreciate everyone that has volunteered to help and all that you have done to make HOWDY-ROO a SUCCESS. If you have not been assigned a particular obligation, please be on standby because there are always things that come up that we may need help with. Carrie is doing better but will not be a 100% so she will certainly appreciate any volunteers.
It's Friday at last. It is RAINING here is West Texas. Even though it is cold, many of us are considering do the Thank You God Rain Dance in the wet!!! Have a GREAT weekend. I hope chili is part of your weekend plan and I hope you get that point!!!
