It is so exciting to be planning this convention/rendezvous after not being able to have events for so long!!

We are looking forward to seeing and visiting with everyone that can attend.

We are working on a demo line-up and have several vendors attending.

There will be raffles for chances to win guns and other prizes.

Miss Rodeo Colorado Hailey Frederiksen will be in attendance.

There is camping available at the fairgrounds (first come first serve) and for those that would like to stay in a hotel, we are working with 2 hotels in the town of Rifle for discounted rates, the La Quinta and Hampton Inn are both gracious enough to help with these special room rates.

There will be food vendors onsite and we will hold our annual dinner on Saturday night right before our auction with Levi Ellis as our auctioneer.

President Dan Gates will be our announcer and emcee throughout the weekend.

State Representative Perry Will is going to be a guest speaker during dinner on Saturday night.

We have a few sponsors and are always looking for more, if you or someone you know would be interested in being a sponsor of such a great event, please let us know.
