It is with great excitement that we will be providing Nevada with a State Finals this year in Las Vegas. Many Nevada Ranch Sorters have qualified and supported RSNC and we want to reward you for your efforts. Therefore RSNC, along with Producer Conrad Stitser of Nevada will be hosting an event at Bonnie Springs Ranch just outside Las Vegas which will serve as the Nevada State Finals. All qualified members will be able to add to their state earned points at this event to win state prizes including spurs, bits, bridles, stirrups, splint boots, Cinch shirts and award plaques.
The Finals date is Thursday, December 6th starting at 9am. This is when the cattle will be the freshest and the only day that we are able to offer a full slate of classes. Friday, Saturday and Sunday there will be afternoon classes as well, but those days will count for the National point race and next years Nevada Finals points. Anyone and everyone can attend and compete on any and all of the 4 days for cash payouts. Additionally, we will be awarding buckles to the highpoint 1,2,3,4,5, and 6 & above for the event.
We have been given the opportunity to promote our sport to thousands who attend the Cowboy Christmas at the Las Vegas Convention Center on December 7th, 8th and 9th and we are inviting each of you to attend. The leaders of the demonstrations will be Shelly Fitzgerald, Joel and Jared Lesh and Ken McNabb, with contestants being selected from the previous day's competition at Bonnie Springs to assist. Without all of you and the 17,000 other members of RSNC who have come together through the RSNC association, this kind of recognition for the sport would have never been possible and we want to sincerely thank you.
Now that all of you have come together to collectively build one of the greatest disciplines in the Equine industry, we are able to showcase it to the World and you will be reaping the rewards with sponsors and prizes coming your way. In just 5 short years, we have developed the recognition that will place Ranch Sorting in communities, fairs and rodeos all across the country. It will provide enjoyment to you, your families and friends for generations to come and I want to thank you for believing in RSNC and participating with us to make it happen. It is my hope that we can continue to serve and support you, as members, and that you see the value of the $3 sanctioning fee in what has been accomplished and what is ahead in the upcoming years.
It is a long standing tradition that all good cowboys ride for a brand and you can be proud that the brand you are riding behind now has members in every state in the US and is representing each and everyone of you as a united group of friends and families that are competing and having fun in the fastest growing equine family sport in America.
