President's Letter
(June 2003)

Dear Members,

With summer and all the summer events quickly approaching, we want to be sure that everyone is aware of the Annual General Membership Meeting scheduled for June 21 at the Lonesome Pines Ranch in Smithville. Chris and I are happy to host this meeting and look forward to having a great event for everyone to enjoy. Should you have items that you wish to put on the agenda, please e-mail Chris at "". And, please bring your ideas for the STLA website. We will be electing officers and directors and plan for the 2003-2004 future of STLA. If you plan to attend, call 512-360-4299 as we will be serving a pot luck lunch. Please bring a dish to share; we will provide the meat.

The Star of Texas Fair and Rodeo is behind us for another year. What a great show! The weather was cool, but not FRIGID! Our entries were about the same as last year, with a lot of new exhibitors. The facility shows some improvement over last year and the process was fairly smooth. Carolyn and Wilton Wilton provided a wonderful spaghetti supper on Saturday night. ff you missed it, you missed a real treat! Our thanks to the MANY volunteers that helped make this show so successful. We are looking forward to an even better show next year. So put on your thinking caps and let's see how we can increase the numbers next year and make this show the event of the Longhorn Year.

Don't forget to contact Linda Rork if you would like to showcase your ranch or if you are interested in advertising in STLA Newsletter. Also, remember that Membership Dues are now due. Contact Rick Adams for information. We look forward to seeing you in June, if not before!

John Randolph, President
