Our 2018 Finals brought some tough competition.  We had 154 finalists entered over the weekend of November 10-11, 2018 at Acadiana Fairgrounds SugArena in New Iberia, LA.  Over $120,000 in cash and awards were distributed.   Special thanks to Jarred Broussard and family for cooking our gumbo donated by Hebert's Specialty Meats for Saturday evening and all those that contributed potato salad or dessert.  SugArena supplied the tables and chairs.  We had plenty!  Both our silent and live auctions were a success.  Logan Krieg, Misty Thibodeaux and Cindy Leger donated the 3 items bringing in the highest bids.   Many class champions were not determined until the finals average points were calculated.  We congratulate all of our year-end winners.  Fastest barrel time for the finals was a 15.449 run by Katti Breaux on Mr Tapestry Moon.  Fastest pole time was a 21.170 run by Darnelle Guidry on Bozo Pistols Tigger.   Complete results and year-end standings are posted.  Check out our full color finals program online and thank all that have supported the association.    David Leadingham joined us again to capture all the action shots and memories. He will have pictures posted online soon.  We thank all of those that helped in obtaining, customizing and storing our awards including Bayou Equine Solutions, Natalie Guidry, Buck N Hoss, Misti Thibodeaux, and all board members that lent a helping hand.  Katti Breaux organized our flag ceremony including our major sponsor's flags. Our 2019 Schedule will be finalized soon.  New board members are needed for 2019.  Please contact us if you or anyone you know would be interested in serving our organization.
