We really got lucky with the weather for this year's Bobcat Booster Ox Roast, and Grandview must have been in the 50 percent area that was not forecast for rain.

We had a very nice turnout and I'm extremely happy about how all of Grandview pitched in to make our community festival a huge success. This is the best weather we've had since I've been in the Boosters, and the lighting of the pit was well attended as always.

There were lots of proud parents of the football team captains, cheerleaders and the band and we got some good pictures to document our great tradition. Like clockwork our awesome pit helpers, including the Smith brothers, Mike the firefighter, the Center boys and retired Booster Denise and her husband who moved out of town, stayed up all night to tend to the fire so it would be ready when the Boosters returned at 4:30 a.m. to start the process of loading the meat into the pit.

It was a great experience being the head ox, an experience that was only made possible by all the tireless effort put forth by the Bobcat Boosters and the awesome people of Grandview who volunteer for all the duties required to make this event our biggest fundraiser.

I want to especially thanks Brian Davis, last year's head ox, who helped me with the process. I love you all man, and thanks for the memories.
