Tornadoes Take Blue by Storm

The Texas Tornadoes Mounted Drill Team held their fiest annual fundraiser at the Blue Volunteer Fire Department. The event on April 4, 2009 was enjoyed by all and brought the community together for a good time.

Great food, prizes and lots of laughter rewarded the supporters of this Lee County Equestrian unit. Phil & Amber Brockenbush were winners of the grand prize.

All riders and horses with the Tornadoes are experience horsemen and have participated in competition and rodeos across the state.

Coach Garry Turner said, "The drill team would like to thank all of our supporters. The funds raised will help with expenses to travel to the USEDA National Competition in Tyler, Texas on June 24-27."

The Lee County Drill Competition is being hosted by the Texas Tornadoes on May 15 at 8 p.m. and 9 a.m. on May 16 at the Lee County Sheriff's Posse arena in Giddings. Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend.
