Thanks to all the members who supported Dixie Region Team Penning Association by attending four (4) or more shows to qualify to participate in the 2020 DRTPA Finals. Also thanks to the families who support Dixie Region by producing the sanctioned shows. If it was not for the people who give of their time to produce the shows throughout the year, we would not be able to get anyone qualified for the finals,

Thanks to Clint and Heather Price for choosing outstanding awards for the year-end show, and to the Board of Directors for successfully keeping the show running smoothly and making sure everyone had a wonderful weekend.  Thanks also to Auctioneer Brian Buckner and all the participants in the Youth Auction, raising $9,688 towards the 2021 youth saddles and awards.
