Not just Iowa there RW, some Western Kansan's enjoy it as well :)

Jimmyski - long time since I've herd from you - how's the judging team and weather out there? RW


Things are good. We have one more contest left  in Houston. This year has been a little bit of trying time, as I only had 3 freshmen left when I got here last year, then cobbled together enough people to have a full team, only to have 2 of them quit at semester. I've learned a lot about myself through this year. Just working on recruiting for next year now. If you know of any good stock kids that wanna come west instead of going east, you'll have to let me know.

As far as the weather: dry, dry, dry. We've been pretty spoiled in regards to temperature this winter but we sure didn't get any moisture either.

How is everything in eastern Iowa?

The building years can be very trying for sure! Blackhawk East is pretty aggressive in their recruiting around here, but I'll keep my eyes and ears open for you. We really haven't had a lot of moisture this winter either but we had a bunch last fall. The temps have been wild this winter going from way below zero one week to way above freezing the next. Right now we are in the 40s during the day and teens and twenties at night. Keep up the good fight man - sooner or later you'll get the right bunch of kids in there - that's were the fun begins! RW
You tell them I'm coming - Tell them I'm coming and I'm bringing Hell with me!

JIT forgot one very important fact about Saskatchewan it is also home to the world record typical white tail deer- the Hansen Buck.  Which is actually not that  impressive when seen in person.

Thanks for the description of what a "buckeye" is I've always wondered.
Why is it also referred to as "THE Ohio State University", is there a knock off Ohio State University?
It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

You know, I have worked with the folks at and went to school too at "the Ohio State University. When ever you say anything in the hospital or on campus, you will be corrected, "THE" . There is Ohio Univeristy and I am not sure if they don't want any confusion with the other in Athens OH. HA HA. GO figure on why, but it is The Ohio State Medical Center too. I will research that one. Your right, it is not like there is generic campus using OSU's name .LOL.
Life is too short....don't sweat the small stuff.
