“ON ADVICE OF COUNSEL”
Ranch Matters has been bombarded with tips regarding the rodeo event status. Additionally,
there’s been a lot questions, rumors, gossip and finger-pointing.
Last Thursday (4/7/22), Ranch Manager Judy Lapora was emailed the following:
Dealing with lots of rumors & tips. Can you clarify whether the rodeo is still on at last years location next to the nail business? Has it been cancelled?
Additionally, can you provide a status report regarding the Steel Stampede event?
Later that day, we had an opportunity to stop by the Ranch Administration Office and ask Lapora personally about the rodeo event status and she replied: “I cannot give any information on it right now. Right now, we’re still working on some stuff.”
I asked her if it was still in the air and she said “yes”, but couldn’t comment any further.
Today, some members-not all, received the following Phase Rep report: “Dear Members, The Board is announcing, regrettably, that there will be no rodeo this year. We are still considering our options to bring a rodeo back in future years. ON ADVICE OF COUNSEL, we will not be discussing the circumstances that caused the termination or this year’s rodeo until the proper time.
President Bill Burt. Judy Lapora Ranch Manager.”
