WR Crew 2016 (L to R) The Legend himself, Glenn Schwaller, my multi-talented wife Christine O’Byrne, me, our Big Sky livestock sales powerhouse Lanette Frye, the illustrious Drew Lawler, his sunshiney daughter Katie, our super-capable head of marketing Carolyn Hillgren, me and Christine’s son Mark O’Byrne, Drew’s wonderful wife Linda, and the always effervescent Annie Allen. So keep sending those letters and packages, we really love to hear from you, and although Facebook and electronic messaging is the king these days, nothing beats the excitement and anticipation of opening that mailbox and fi nding a handwritten treasure from a reader. FUN IN THE SUN Since San Diego isn’t that far away from our production offi ces, we managed to get the whole WR crew to the NCBA Trade Show. We had so much fun meeting and greeting all those who could attend, thanks so much for stopping by the booth and visiting. It was a great show with some fantastic exhibits, many of them our friends and supporters going back ten years to our fi rst issue. Glad to see y’all there and doing well. Next year we’ll be in Nashville… always a great time at the Opryland Hotel! See you there! Here’s a shot of our Grand Prize winner of the Polaris Ranger being chosen by our Guest Ticket Picker Miss Vallie Yancey, assisted by Katie Lawler (L) and Carolyn Hillgren. The drawing occurred precisely at 5 p.m. on Friday, January 29th at our booth on the trade show fl oor. And the excited winner was Kim Sloan, from Santa Paula, California. We’ll have a photo of Kim on her prize once she takes possession of it here in a couple of weeks. Congratulations, Kim! Good job, Valli! And thanks to all of you who entered.
