Youth Camp 2005
RV Ranch held their 7th youth camp back in February, and we saw a lot of interest from several new families that attended this year. We had kids here from all over Texas, as well as from out of state. Roger Meyer brought his granddaughter Crystal Kassales down from Ohio again, and Valerie Keating brought her son Christopher down from Missouri again this year. New families included the Lewis’ from Missouri who brought Kayla and Joshua, and the Cunningham’s from Louisiana who brought Nikki and Chance. With all of the interest from out of state and from within Texas, it is obvious that the camp is benefitting youth who are active in showing longhorns and those wanting to give it a try. We had some familiar faces again this year as instructors. Bart May, Larry Smith, Raelynn Stephens, and Brad & Robin Hancock stepped up to the plate to lend their expertise. We had over 20 kids that were in the basic “Getting Started” class this year. The advanced classes had 20 or more kids in them as well. Thanks to Sabina Knoerr and Martiza Andrews for helping with the pee-wee’s again this year. Johnny & Leonna Adkins came with their chuck wagon again this year and we had chicken fried steak for dinner Saturday night and breakfast burritos Sunday morning. What a treat it was to have them handle all of the cooking. We fed the greatest number of people to date this year, with 91 adults and kids for lunch. Although we lost any affiliation we had with ITLA this year, we were strongly supported by two longhorn affiliates, MTLA and ORVTLA, several local businesses who donated T-Shirts, soft drinks, and food, and a host of generous members and friends who have made a commitment to benefitting the youth in our program. With each year’s increase in attendance, it is certainly by the generosity of these sponsors that this program continues. Thanks to each of our sponsors for your help


For comic relief, and to show the wrong way to exhibit in the show ring, "Cowboy Bob" made a special appearance.
