Let me take a minute to tell you about the ground situation at the WNFR and what has been done over the past year. The WPRA has been working on ground improvement at the WNFR since the conclusion of last year’s rodeo. I brain stormed with WNFR representatives last winter on what we felt they could do to improve conditions. Last summer a donation was presented to provide new ground, new equipment, and a suitable tractor. This fall the existing ground and water was analyzed and appropriate solutions were given to them. Since I have been here, I have been in direct contact with WNFR representatives daily on the condition of the ground and possible solutions. I feel we have taken all steps within our power to provide safe ground for all events. We do not have the authority to make changes, only to make suggestions and try to see that they are implemented. Know that I am still working and doing everything I possibly can.
