Greetings from the Famous
The Acton Rangers held their sixth gymkhana of the year on Sunday, August 5th. The arena condition was ready to go, and the weather was extremely warm for a wonderful day of competition. Although we were missing quite a few of our participants, those who were there, provided some competitive excitement. Congratulations to Sarah Monson for promoting into Single A Saddle Class!
A total of 34 riders participated in the 6th gymkhana of the season, competing in two separate Year End Award Divisions. Entry fees for the 2018 Acton Ranges’ Gymkhana are $5 per rider per class, however, novice competitors (12 and under) are only $2.50 per rider per class. We are expecting another sunny and warm day for our September 2nd gymkhana and the points standings are close. As we grind down to the final 2 gymkhanas’ this season, the competition is fierce. Both the Saddles and Buckles are still undecided and anything can happen during the next two gymkhanas, you are not going to want to miss the excitement. As a reminder, our gymkhanas are on the 1st Sunday of the month from March to October, and the awards ceremony will be held on Sunday, November 4th at the Acton community center.
Keep your calendars open for the weekend of November 3rd and 4th. The Acton Rangers are considering hosting a Play Day on Saturday November 3rd, at the Acton Arena, to benefit the Acton Community Center. Keep a look out for details in the near future as we approach the weekend. On Sunday, November 4th, the Acton Rangers Awards Ceremony will be held at the Acton Community Center, commencing at 9am. Come out and support all of our riders and award recipients!
All us Rangers look forward to seeing you at our next Gymkhana on Sunday, September 2nd, at the Vincent Hill Arena.
Remember, ride hard, shoot straight, and always tell the truth!!
