WB Ranch is back on the Grid!

Posted on

This weekend was to say the least was fun.   After a crazy week at work, a few non sleepless night thinking about the BOTB we FINALLY got on the road to WB Ranch in Swanton Ohio at about 4 PM you guessed it 2 hours late J as usual.

We headed to WB to help out our road crew member Becky Johnson with her 2nd NBHA show as 07 Director. Her, her hubby Rich and daughter Crystal were waiting for us when we arrived. They were relaxing under the awning on a beautiful late Friday afternoon – We would get unpacked and settled in then head to Becky’s trailer to see what was going on…….. As we walk up to the trailer we would walk into the middle of a conversation with Becky saying “ I said just call me………..Jesus” As I look at her with my head tilted to the side – I said Ok then Jesus Nice to meet you………..And the weekend began.

Leein Wayne would find his way to Swanton for the weekend to work in the office, he is test driving the new program that we developed for our shows. Crystal and Monica and even Josh were in the office and learning the program for future use. They did amazing.. Leein approved and with a couple more upgrade and a web interface it should be ready for the BOTB!

Once Leein arrived we would head to Shuckers for a late dinner and a whole lot of laughs. The food was great, the music was some great singing tunes but the waitress was rude. We did not let that spoil our fun though. Great friends, great times.

Josh Haskins and his Dad stepped in to do the ground for the day. Nick Wylie would help out with the Big Drags and get everyone through the cloverleaf pattern for the weekend. Julie Siesky, Noonie Booher, Becky Wilburn, Cathy Geary and a lot of other riders hit the chute with the speed you can only get at WB Ranch and put great times on the clock. Julie would win the open and she is hoping that Perks Broker can bring it to the August 8-10 show that is an out of state qualifier for the Best of the Best.   We hope to see the surrounding states at the show to show us what they have to qualify for the BOTB Slot race!

The show went very smooth. The 07 members are hardworking members and from what we can see support the new director with all they have.  The money maker for 07 will be held at WB in August and with the ranch improvements at WB, a showbill with over $4000 added – It was $3500 until this weekend when Nick and Khloe Wylie donated another $500 in appreciation of the 07 members coming to their ranch! Thank you Nick and Khloe we all appreciate it.   Watch for the new flyer this week on Facebook. Also watch for the Tommy Wylie Memorial Show Flyer for the October show which will be out soon.

Nick and Khloe have some great plans for the ranch and we are excited for the future.

After the show we all sat down with Jesus to relax, chat about what we can do to make things better at the next show and just relax and enjoy the evening. Helen Chambers and Don Holden are amazing and dedicated 07 members and great friends. Donna Shoemaker made the show but had to hit the road home- she was sad that she could not go to dinner especially after she saw some fire side pictures this morning…Jesus they were funny! Clea showed Becky (AKA Jesus) she could style hair. Clea’s Creations was born! Carolyn Korek, Kayla and George (Kisses loves George) would stop by for a visit under the awning before heading home! It is always so nice to see them. We enjoyed seeing everyone and being back at WB – its been to long since we have been there.

We headed home this morning and ready for another week of work and one week closer to the BOTB!

Until we see you again,    As always – Remember be a little kinder to someone today and love each other a little more!
