Wendell Salas updated the Club on final Rocky Mountain Mustang Roundup developments and a lot of discussion occurred between veterans of previous Roundups and first timers planning on attending this year’s event about what to expect with various activities and general logistics associated with the event.
The Club’s participation in the Rio Grande Mustang Club Show in Albuquerque  was very successful with 3 members winning gold medals and another a silver plus President Standiford did quite well winning some monetary awards.  June’s Club event will be the aforementioned Rocky Mountain Mustang Roundup form June 13-15.
