The Backcountry News Volume 19, Issue 4 The Official Publication of Backcountry Horsemen of California Thank You for a Successful 2012 Rendezvous

Again this year the BCHC Rendezvous was held in Red Bluff. It was bigger and better than last year and it was a pleasure to be involved. It takes a lot of support from the BCHC Units, individual BCHC members, local businesses and others to put it on. So with that I would like to thank everyone I can that went above and beyond the ordinary. First from BCHC I would like to thank the five North State Units:

High Country Redwoods Shasta Trinity

Next I want to thank some special individuals that were very instrumental in making the Rendezvous such a success; Sam Burrows, Kim Gardner, Pat Snyder, Ken Snyder, Melissa Budden, and the rest of the 2012 committee. A special thanks to those from CSHA for putting on the Trail Obstacle Challenge. Last I would like to thank the local businesses that provided support to us: Maverick Outfitters, Hawes Farm & Ranch Supply, Guy Rents, Tink, Four Corners Hulling & Shelling, Bar Ale Feeds, Grange Insurance, The Gallery in Mt Shasta, McCloud Mercantile, Wild Wind Rustics, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Riverside Nursery, and Antelope Veterinary Clinic. These businesses helped sponsor the event and provided BCHC with equipment, logistical items, high end raffle items, and other help. That goes along with the North State Businesses that provided over $10,000 in cash and items for our raffle. Again thank you for your support and efforts. The Rendezvous moves to Norco in 2013 and I know it will also be a resounding success and it will be great to see it in the southland. I will be there, won’t you? AWARDS:
