WNFR contestants and awards, barrel and breakaway jackpots, event series, SDQHA banquet
This nice weather has sure been welcome as far as getting late fall work done. We sure do need moisture, but am hoping it waits until later winter and comes as wet snow followed by a wet spring.
I’m enjoying the dry conditions as I’m still getting around with a walker post-surgery. Slick ground would sure make me pucker up! I’m healing, but it will take time. I’ll be in my body brace for three months yet, but it will be worth it in the end as I want my back surgery to be a success and the route to success is following Dr.’s orders. Physical therapy will be starting this next week too.
I want to offer belated but heartfelt congratulations to all those regional contestants who are at the WNFR. In the barrels are Amanda Welsh, Gillette, Wyo., Lisa lockhart, Oelrichs, S.D., Jessica Routier, Buffalo, S.D., and Molly Otto, Grand Forks, N.D.
