It was an honor to play host to the Professional Bull Riders dance in the parking lot of my business, the Windsock Lounge. I want to thank everyone for all of their hard work and dedication in making this year's dance so successful.
First and foremost, thank you to J.C. Trujillo and the staff and contestants from the Cowboy Capital Copenhagen PBR Bull Riding Challenger Tour.
Special thanks to Mike Stazenski and the band Latigo for their outstanding performance.
Thank you to Hensley and Co., Canyon Distributors, Alliance Beverage and Republic National for the great promotions. David Poulos from HRD Spirits went above and beyond the call of duty. Everyone really appreciated his generosity.
Thank you to my hard-working staff at The Windsock who helped make everything run so smoothly. Barbra Clougherty, Brandy Schmitt, Mishael Cummings, Natalie Dillon, Amber Hitson, Ally Vanderheyden, Shauna Soriano and Duckie Marie did a fantastic job.
I am so grateful to John Clatterbuck from JRC Development; Jill Jackson, Brent Wells and Justin Clougherty from The Sawman Concrete Cutting; and Lars Youngren and Josh West from Kern Kendall Construction. All of your participation made for the best party of the year!
You all have my sincere appreciation.
