Thank You Plaques

In the beginning…

Back in 2010 when the Big Bend Ranch Rodeo had its 10 Anniversary, the BBRR committee agreed that these first 10 years would not have been possible without many people and sponsors–so we started the THANK YOU honor (in the form of a plaque). We began with the founding people who had the vision to get the ball rolling with the Big Bend Ranch Rodeo and since then the Committee has added to the honor roll–the names of the many sponsors who have been continuous supporters and the special volunteers who have been instrumental in producing this rodeo every year.

In 2017, The Committee began a TOP HAND award honoring a Committee member. The first recipient was Chachi Hawkins.
