President's Letter for November:
Hello Cowboys and Cowgirls of the IRA!
My name is Michael Doolittle and I just want to take a moment to say thank you for your support and for electing me as your 2016-2017 IRA president! I feel that it is truly an honor and a privilege! I have been the bull riding director for the last five years. I have been an active member of the IRA for the past 12 years, competing both in the Bull Riding and in the Saddle Bronc riding!...
I also would like to take a moment and welcome all of the new members to the Board of Directors. I thank you all for stepping up and taking on the responsibility of being on the Board!
I think that the 2015 finals went great! The weather was good and there was some great rodeo action! Now, in looking forward to the 2016 season, I feel that there are a lot of great things in this association! Be sure and support our IRA contractors and I look forward to seeing you all at some of the winter rodeos!
If anyone has any questions, comments, or concerns, feel free to contact me at anytime! I will do my best to listen and take care of them all as quickly and efficiently as possible! Thanks again for all your support! And I hope to see you all on the rodeo trail soon to come!
