GENEROUS 2017-18 SPONSORS

Dallas Gathering Reflections
The 2018 Dallas Gathering is history and it was historic. Brad Powell of Crazy Cowboy's again provided the steak dinners and Britt Hammond again provided the entertainment. Dennis Linam videoes the event and posted it on the Facebook page and Tony Wade provided Auction Items and made the Gun Raffle a huge success.
About 70 alumni and family members attended and had a fantastic time. We had a quickly-put-together auction at the event which raise about $2,500 for the Association.
One story. One alum from 30+ years back saw another alum from his dorm. He was so glad to see him again and grateful for support provided when he was a kid at the Ranch, he purchased an auction item for him before leaving. Tears were shed. We are family and these family gatherings bring us together!
