Site Announcements

If you are not already a paid CFBRAA member I want to encourage you to become one.
Our association is doing good things and helping out many with special needs and scholarships.
We aren't doing as much as we would like to do and not as much as one would expect, especially if you or someone you are close to are in need of financial help.
We are limited by the funds we have available, so what we can do is modest compared to the needs.

Here is what we were able to accomplish this year with less than 300 paid members:
1. Helped 15 families in crisis situations, providing medical help, housing, utilities, clothing, etc. You provided nearly $11K in crisis support to families.
2. Helped 9 alumni families send their children to college, providing $6K in scholarship assistance.
3. Helped scores of new alumni with transportation, providing $4K for vehicle maintenance and fuel for the Alumni Support Center.
4. Provided $500 to the residents of the Alumni Support Center to help with Christmas presents for their families.
5. Provided $500 to the homes at BR as awards for the Christmas Contest winners.

The BEST basketball ever to play for BR

I will give you my story...it was my final year at the ranch. I had switched from a 4yr graduate to a 3yr graduate and so I was on the team with some great players. WE happened to be the first team to bring the Golden Basketball trophy home.....but I suited up every game and went on every trip....the only time I scored was at the Dalhart tournament when as everyone was getting into the van, I was making out with some girl.....no clue who it was, but a friend at the time. :wink: That was the only time I scored and the only game I played in was when we played Dimmet and we were getting stomped pretty bad.....so the 4th quarter about 3 minutes left he puts me in. I would LOVE to telling this was Cinderella story, but no, I threw the ball up and was fouled and went to the line to shoot two. Normally I'm good at free throws, but their gym was like being in a fish bowl and I missed them both.

But I do speak of that year with pride as I scored only once....and I say it with a smile. :D
