Thanks to all the contestants who voted online in the last several months. Kyle Partain will be attending our first spring rodeo in Alexandria. Kyle writes the for the NHSRA Times and has the inside back page for his “ The Last Word”. He will be writing about our rodeo and will be interested in visiting with many of MHSRA families and looking for story ideas. Lets make sure he has a great time and put on a fantastic rodeo. It will be Good Friday and the last time we had the rodeo on Good Friday we had a huge night.

2003 State Finals Update
We are under way with the final preparations for the 2003 State Finals. We have selected our stock contractor, judges, championship saddles, buckles and our clown. We are still in search of cutting cattle and a band or DJ for Saturday night dance at the Woodloch arena. A reminder - We will not be able to set up/select camping sites for the State Finals in Hugo until Thursday June 12, 2003 after 3:00 PM. This is per the Deadbroke Saddle Club. Lets hope for a dry and warm weekend of rodeo.
Deadbroke Saddle Club and the Forest Lake American Legion will be providing 1,000 American flags to the first 1,000 kids to attend Saturdays rodeo performance. Saturday June 14, 2003 is Flag Day and with the possibility of war it will make our Saturday performance very memorable.
New MHSRA Logo
We now have our new MHSRA logo available for our stationary, business cards and promotional items. Special thanks to Stacy Corrington and Sharon Baker for getting the items digitized and also moving the logo process along. It is great to have a logo designed by one of our contestants and then use the logo for our functions.
