as he richly deserves, into the

Texas Trail of Fame.

on Ben's behalf.

This must be done this week!

Deadline is

Dear Friends and Fans,

 Exciting news to share!

 I'm reaching out to all of Ben's friends, fans and the people we've met in our travels, to share our happiness.

Ben has been chosen to be inducted into the very prestigious Rodeo Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City! 

 The ceremony takes place in November, and I'd like to see all of you attend!  You can go to:


https://nationalcowboymuseum.org/rodeo-hall-of-fame-weekend/

for details. 

 Please consider coming out to attend the induction ceremony and dinner on Saturday, November 12 at 5:00pm. I believe you'll find pricing and more details in the above link to the museums site, and I'd loved to see you there.

Ben is so richly deserving of this honor, and the only way it could be made any better, would be if he were still here to accept it himself.
 
Please share this to your social media sites to share the good news! And, let's everyone come out for this celebration and support our favorite Rodeo Cowboy!

Please, be sure to come by and say 'hello' to us, and meet more of Ben's family.
 
Sure hope to see you in November!
