Kansas Cowboy Poetry Contest Results
9:05 am cdt
Enjoyed the Kansas Cowboy Poetry contest finals last night (6-14-13)
in Alma. I was a participant and I'm happy to say that I won the serious poem division with a poem titled "Care
of the Kids". Ron Ratliff from Missouri won the humorous poem division. The contest was well
run, with some good poems presented. KS chapter of the Western Music Assoc. was the sponsor of the contest, with
grant funds fromt the KS Arts Foundation being a major supporter. Today, I will go to the Symphony in the Flint Hills
to present the poem again, and recieve a buckle from Governor Brownback. What a weekend.
