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.

69th Annual Rodeo August 31 + September 1 , 2013

Postby Jerry Nicholson » Mon Jun 10, 2013 12:14 pm

That time is here again. I look forward to seeing everyone who can make it there.

Host Hotels
Ambassador Hotel - $89
and/or
Holiday Inn Express on Wolflin - $79. Their number is 1-806-322-3050.
.

Reservations need to be made by August 8th. Tell them you are with Cal Farley's Boys Ranch Alumni to get the rate. Other rates apply to different room sizes.

Jeff Mitchell and I have been staying at the Holiday Inn Express since 2006. I like the place and recommend it to everyone. This year it is one of the Host Hotels and the rates are great. I just made my reservations for Friday and Saturday.

My wife is coming out with me this year so it is a 2 day trip in the car each way with a nice hotel stop overnight instead of driving straight through on the motorcycle. I like to have her see where I grew up and meet some of the BR family. This will be her second trip and she is looking forward to it.

Also look at the best available is $59.00 on the H/I express 1911 I-40 East
Amarillo, TX.

I won't be attending this year because I need to get things in order at home. I hope you all have a good trip and I'd like to visit next year for the 70th annual event.

Tiny, I am going to miss you. Will take photos and post for those that can't make it.

I looked at the other Holiday Inn Express and did not like the location. A good price if the location is right.

I was eager to catch up again; but I need to get my affairs in order and these things come in time.

Tiny,

I just got home from vacation to Philadelphia and NYC to visit the kids. We are leaving on Thursday for BR. I am driving the car this year and the wife is going with me. She talked me into renting a car for a week instead of putting the miles on my car. I am going to miss you and Jeff is also not going to make it this year.

Good idea about renting as you'll have a newer car and if it breaks they'll send another car and it is 3,000 plus miles that will not be on yours. Have a safe trip and I hope it is a nice one had by all.

BTW if you can find out about Lanny as I haven't seen nor heard from him in a really long time.

I talked to Lan a while back on the phone. His computer took a dump and he was trying to get it fixed.

Last time I saw him he had a serious neck contraption he had to wear. Glad to hear he is doing ok and hopefully he can get his computer replaced or fixed soon.
