ABRA's 2015 Finals
November 7th & 8th, 2015 at New Iberia's SugArena
The 2015 Finals are in the history books. Over $80,000 in cash and awards were presented. Every finalist was given a choice among a selection of top awards and also given many bonus items. All left with at least $600 in awards. Thanks to everyone that has helped in any way to make ABRA what it is today. Special thanks to Robi Meche for stepping up and taking award pictures for us when our scheduled photographer cancelled on us at the last minute. Our Gumbo social on Saturday evening was a huge success and the member's contributions of potato salad, desserts and more were phenomenal! Staci, Scotty & family cooked the delicious gumbo for us again this year. Complete results and year-end standings have been posted. Congratulations to each and every finalist! Our 2016 Schedule is up - make plans to join us! Let us know your likes and dislikes as we prepare for the new season.
