Last night was the last HLSR meeting (for my committee) before the Rodeo starts in March! Our meeting started at 6:30 pm, but everyone gets there a bit early for free drinks and food! We were able to pick up the 2015 gold committeeman badge and it is awesome looking! It’s so shiny!
If you don’t know what the badge is for, basically it shows that you are a volunteer for the rodeo on a specific committee. There are over 31,000 committee members and it would be hard to know who each of them are. They give each of us a gold badge to get in to the concerts and carnival for free plus one guest. We can sit anywhere in the arena, but if someone comes and says you are sitting in their seat, you have to move to another one. Plus, we get a free parking pass as well. If you are interested in signing up for a committee, let me know and I will tell you how to do it! :)
At the meeting they gave us updates on the committee, recognized members with year milestones (5, 10, 15 years, etc), and reminded us to sign up for shifts. They also mentioned that the Houston Rodeo was on track to sell out 13 of their concerts this year!!! There was also a person who was giving away copies of the art that was won at past years school art auctions. I was able to take a beautiful piece of art home from the winner of the 2012 art competition. Isn’t it beautiful??!!! I can’t wait to frame it and hang it up. They only reprint 2,500 of each piece and mine was #15. Pretty cool.
Are you ready for the Rodeo????? I am! I can’t wait to see the concerts and ride the carnival rides. Speaking of the carnival, don’t forget to purchase half price carnival tickets NOW (GO HERE).
