UCCA Ball.

With the holidays, I didn't get a chance to post pictures from the Umatilla Cattlemen's Ball until now.

It was SUCH a fun evening!

I'm posting a picture of the centerpieces because the UCCA President's wife is expected to craft the centerpieces each year.  The President serves a 2 year term, and so INEVITABLY the first year in office he forgets to tell his wife that this is expected.  But this was Ryan's second year, so Amy was WAY ahead of the game and had a plan in place in November.

That has to be a record.

Good work Amy!

The ball always starts with a social hour.  People visit, buy tickets for the saddle raffle, joke & tell stories.  Then dinner is served; always prime rib (that's a given when you have rancher's getting together), and then there's a quick business meeting before the entertainment starts.

This year, they had three items to auction for the scholarship fund - thanks Karl, Ian & Terry for buying.  The 2013 recipient was announced and the saddle winner was drawn.

And then - the laughter began.  

Take Two Productions was the entertainment this year, and let me just tell you -

They were hilarious. 


 I think everyone's cheeks hurt at the end of the night from laughing so hard!
They really made the evening fun, and I think over half the crowd walked away from the evening with one of their CD's to play in our pickups for the next year.  I know I did.

The UCCA Ball is always a great way to head into the holiday season, and we were glad we got to be a part of it again this year.  Here's to a great year ahead!
