Greetings from the Famous
The Acton Rangers held their third gymkhana of the year on Sunday, May 6th. The arena condition had a muddy spot, but for the most part was ready to go, and the weather was pleasant for a wonderful day of competition. With all the events being held in the area, we had many returning riders and a few new ladies that competed in the Time Only class. It was great to see the new riders pushing through the day and the improvement was noticeable! Can’t wait to see you all next month! Two of our Novice riders were promoted into the Single A Saddle Class, Josie Blaha and Mazie Fary. Congratulations to you all!!
A total of 68 riders participated in the 3rd 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 a sunny and warm day for our June 3rd gymkhana and the points standings are close, as we have 5 more gymkhanas’ this season, and it is early enough for everyone to have a chance for the saddles and buckles. 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.
The Acton Community Center will be present at our June Gymkhana selling the “Duckie Drop” tickets. This is your chance to pick your favorite “duckie number”. The “Duckie Drop” will take place at the July 1st gymkhana around midday. Listen to Announcer Richard for the actual location during the gymkhana. Contact Linda @ 661-435-1780 or Sue @ 661-713-8589 for details.
Remember that the week of July 1st shall be lots of fun with the Gymkhana starting off the week on Sunday and the annual 4th of July Parade in downtown Acton on Wednesday, July 4th. The Acton Rangers will be there and we are looking forward to seeing and interacting with all of our friends along the parade route!
All us Rangers look forward to seeing you at our next Gymkhana on Sunday, June 3rd, at the Vincent Hill Arena.
Remember, ride hard, shoot straight, and always tell the truth!!
