Chris Goisnard of Park Fancy Meats did a bang-up job of dinner. It was absolutely fabulous and there is no doubt in my mind that I will be purchasing boxes of meat from Park Fancy Meats. (Chris is from Camrose, but he delivers.)
And then Brett Kissell got up on the stage. He prides himself on the job he does, and he didn’t let us down. We were a small crowd, but he gave it his all … and his all is very impressive. If you weren’t there, you really missed out. And, strangely, it turns out that his mother is a breast cancer survivor too, so this show was more than “just another show” for him!
So, we ate, we shared a beer while Brett sang, and when the second set was finished, we held our live and silent auction. Because the crowd was so small, those of us who were bidding made out like bandits! *grin*
And then … it was over.
Eighteen months of planning. Scores of wonderful people in assorted agricultural societies between Cochrane and Josephburg. Tons of others who put on incredible shows of “pinkness” in towns along our route. Volunteers who cooked, drove tractor, drove trucks, and generally looked after things. Riders who came for a day and one rider who was in for the whole nine yards.
So … if you’re coming back, what do you want next year? Will you be coming back next year? What would you like to be different? What would you like to stay the same?
