By attending the church service, contestants were able to enter the playday. And what a colorful and exciting playday it was! Cowboys and cowgirls, horses, music, good food from the BCCC Chuck Wagon Team, friends and family, and lots of fun were all a part of this first playday event held at Brush Country Cowboy Church. The arena was filled with contestants from two years of age to adults of all ages.
From the opening flag ceremony, singing of the National Anthem, and prayer by Pat Traxler to the presentation of buckles and prizes at the end of the day, the energy and excitement never ceased.
Gist Silversmith Trophy Buckles were given for first place, beautiful leather headstalls for second place, colorful bronc halters for third place, leather over & under whips for fourth place, leather hole punches for fifth place, and large feed buckets with horse wormer for sixth place.
